Social Media Management – A Challenge For Entrepreneurs

I fell a good rule to implement is engaging in social media activities for about 30 minutes 5 days a week. This gives you time to check on your networks, make appropriate comments, and see if there are any issues that you need to attend to.

If you want to run out and purchase the spices discussed each month, you can always go to Penzeys in Scottsdale or even your local grocery stores in Mesa. Sprouts (with 2 locations in Mesa) even sells spices in bulk so you can buy as much or as little as you like when trying out new spices.

When you get hired by a company as the social media mangement guy or gal, your responsibility is to maintain the presence of your client. This means, keeping the Facebook page up to date, posting on their blog, and tweeting for them. This can be a really time consuming job, but if you have a framework to work from, it can be a great way to get the deluge under control.

Ditch the gadgets. Please, please, please do not have important conversations through e-mail, facebook, or texting. You should not even do them over the phone. It is much better to have these talks in person (see above, #3).

If you have a strong feeling your spouse is cheating on you, you can have her checked. You can go through the call log where received and missed calls are stored and carefully copy out the number. That is the time to ask the question; “whose cell phone number is this?” That is the best time to get online and start a quick check on who the owner is. However, you need to be as discreet as you can because you do not want your spouse raising an eyebrow.

Do an assessment of your current social media activities. Have you set priorities on certain activities? Do you have a schedule for posting on your blog, or for scheduling status updates ahead of time? When do you start creating your status updates or blog posts? If you haven’t set a schedule for your social media activities for the week or for the whole month, create a timeline. Open an Excel spreadsheet and create a calendar, or you can open your Google Calendar, or sign up for an account at 30 Boxes. Create a simple calendar that you can follow so you can be more organized with your activities each week or month.

“Finishing something up for u tomorrow for the acoustic album. Get ready. Not gonna let u down. Just me and my guitar,” tweeted Justin Bieber from his official twitter account. The entertainer also shared a link so people could immediately put down the .99 for the advance purchase.

These two philosophies are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, they should work in consort with one another. It is simply a way to help one understand where the emphasis is often placed. It is like putting a magnifying lens on a small flow, so you can see it better.

You can combine these techniques. Let’s say you have a viral marketing piece written or interesting articles. You can put them on Twitter and facebook, two-for-one!

Yes, social media is a great way to promote your business and boost sales. But, the real strength of social media for a small business is in its ability to build and engage a community around your brand.

Who will maintain my social networking presence? You may not have the staff to maintain your social profiles. So, will you hire a social media mangement firm, or allocate a certain time of the day or week to invest in your social networking strategy?

What is your demographic? Men, women, older people, younger people, casual music fans, music lovers? Are your fans going to be fans of Rock music? Folk? Pop? Ska? If you know who you are trying to attract, it will be easier to think of how to attract them.

G+ offers an ability to edit posts that currently does not exist in Facebook. This can lessen the obvious headaches that come with posting before you think. It’s also likely that the G+ built in video chat sent Facebook scrambling to incorporate Skype. Video chat will make both networks an utility tool for busy employees that cannot otherwise find the opportunity to sit down in the same room for a meeting.

Limit the time you spend in social media. Most highly successful people pop in and out of Twitter, Facebook and Linked In a few times a day, but limit the time they spend there. You should use a service that will allow you to organize your social networks in one place such as HootSuite, Ping.FM or TweetDeck. These social media mangement tools will also allow you to pre-schedule posts and post to multi-networks at one time.

Time management is a vital part of your overall social media strategy. A lot of business owners put a lot of time and effort in building their online presence. They sign in to their social networks to see if someone has left a comment, or have “liked” their post, sent a mention on twitter, or do a Google search of related news in their industry or check any mentions of their brand. Does this sound like you? This habit of monitoring your brand can get in the way of being productive. I want you to quit doing this and start fresh. It’s time you put up systems that will lessen your time managing your social media activities so no time is ever wasted.

Don’t talk to them like they are a search engine. These are readers. They want to read an email from the funny, witty blogger that they signed up with.

Look for an Seo firm that has been in business for a few years. They’ll likely have built up a portfolio of past projects and they’ll list them on their website in most cases. Have a look through them and try to contact one or two to verify the claims that are being made.

The key here is to not just do one or the other, but to use digital and social media in tandem. To deny social media it’s rightful place in your investment budget means denying yourself your rightful place at the top of your vertical.

You would not go to a doctor who did not stay current on his continuing education so why would you trust your small business with someone who does not invest in his or her education. You would not take your car to a mechanic that is not ASE certified. You would not take your child to a dentist that is not licensed. Do not turn your social media mangement or invest in learning social media by someone who cannot deliver the level of expertise you are looking to attain to grow your small business.

One example of this are posts from facebook or another one would be tweeting on the time a Twitter tweet was posted and use that tweet as an individual permalink. This is an excellent way to create a system of linkage that will refer to one particular item that you tweeted, rather than forcing people to dig through your entire feed.
