Social Media 1, 2, 3… go from Web Success Team

Really Good Article from Janette Speyer VP, on Social Media Time Management...

Time, time, yes I know you don’t have any. Or at least that is what all my clients are telling me when I suggest a Social Media plan to build their reputation and to connect online.

So I thought I would take you through a typical day in the life of a social media user and also a very busy person with a heavy workload. Yes! That would be me.

1. Facebook Daily avg time: 15-20 minutes. Check out new contacts, read some of the posts, answer an email inquiry and post something myself = The time it take to call one person for business and to answer a couple of emails.

2. Linkedin Daily avg time: 30-40 minutes. Keep up with connections, answer industry related questions, make new connections = meeting vendors and clients in person, minus the time it takes to drive in LA.

3. Twitter Daily avg time: 20-30 minutes. 3 posts a day with necessary research. Priceless! I can’t begin to tell you the power Twitter has for business and social relations. If you are on Twitter, follow Starbucks, Jet Blue and see how other corporations are jumping on the SMM bandwagon.

Was that so terrible? Once at work you still have a number of social / networking tasks you have to do to get your work done: phone calls, emails, meetings. How different is Social Media for all this? It is just a point of view.
