Is time really on our side? There are so many things competing for our attention that it’s hard to know where to focus our time and where to go next. Like what to make for dinner, how much time should I spend with the kids, or cleaning the house. But what if things could get a little easier with the help of social media. And what if I told you that you didn’t have to spend hours a day to get this result. It’s true, you DON’T. Here are some suggestions to help you on your journey to more time and brand awareness. Just remember focus to one or two platforms and set-up your automation before moving forth to another platform. So if you are ready to use social media like a boss, let’s begin automating your time.
Let’s get some minutes back in your day!
Your social media presence is extremely important if you want to be the talk of the town. With the help of HootSuite, you can manage all the social media platforms and can also delegate tasks to other users. It serves as a great mean of promoting teamwork.
On the other hand, Buffer lets you publish and schedule content to the social networks. Just make sure that you have something on brand and relevant to stay in front of your fans.
Planning is a very important part of any business. You need to come up with an executable plan and manage it with the help of Google calendar. This will help you save a lot of time as you would already know what lies ahead and what kind of preparation you need to do for it. You can either keep it simple or use extra notes, your choice depends on your need and working style.
Most of the email service providers (especially emails through Google) help in creating customized content which is used again and again in the emails. The pre-formatted content is easy to use as it only requires to be inserted in the email and saves the time and effort of rewriting it all the time. This is great especially if you have the same questions over and over again.
Both Quuu and Crate will help in generating human approved automated postings about what you do. They provide you with the topics you want to talk about and by linking them with your buffer account, your content will reach all your social media accounts.
You need to have a customer support system and sometimes keeping up with the emails from clients can become a really tedious job. For this purpose, this cloud-based service by Freshdesk is one great option which will help in sorting out these emails and reaching back to the customers in the most efficient way.
If you are holding events, classes, and sessions for your clients then Localist will provide you with an opportunity to advertise them through a cloud-based network. You can upload a number of events at the same time on a calendar which also provides you the option of getting feeds from your other calendar tools.
Also, check out eventbrite and see if you can list any local events on their platform. It will automatically send reminders for your events and this will save you time once a person signs up.
I hope you are able to use some of the sites listed here. It’s important to just remember that doing just one thing, whatever that thing is can have big returns. Your time is important and do not waste it on unnecessary things.
