A few weeks ago I wrote this blog about doing your social media in less than 5 minutes a day.

LEAVE A COMMENT ABOUT WHETHER THIS STRATEGY WILL WORK IN YOUR BUSINESS
I had a lot of people thanking me for the blog post and for laying out a simple way to “do” social media, however I have a few of my raving fans say nicely “I understand you are trying to say it’s not that time consuming but there is no way it can be done in 5 mins a day”. So I thought I would take on the challenge myself…. Of course when I wrote that I had NEVER actually timed myself and I don’t do much of my social media myself these days as I have a team that take care of it, but I knew that it can be done as I understand how long it takes to do each separate task.
So today I decided to record this video below of me doing the social media for a new client of mine. I completely followed my original guideline of choosing only 3 social media accounts per day and in this video I have used Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as the examples as it suits my clients business.
As I mention in this video, it is RAW, unedited and this business is completely new to me as I haven’t done anything for this client yet.
I know this works as I have many clients using this strategy! They see big changes because my strategy is TARGETED FOR EACH BUSINESS, you can’t just do a whole lot of different things and wait and see, you need to have a plan and stick to it, only do the tasks that work and once you know what they are, do more of them!
In the video I get through the “daily plan” in exactly 6 minutes and that is while talking my way through what I am doing.
In this video I decide to do the following:
- Pin 1 quote with a link to the latest blog
- Post a link to the blog with an image of the youtube video and text about the blog post
- Re-pin 5 other pins (I lost count and might have done 6)
- Follow 10 other people – that are INTERESTED in this topic (This is the important part, they MUST have an interest in your offer)
- Post a link to the blog post with the headline and 1st paragraph of blog
- Tweet the blog post
- Follow 3 people interested in the topic (I think I followed a few more than 3)
YES! I really did all of this in 6 minutes for a topic I know nothing about and I was explaining everything as I went.
Do you think this would this work for you? Leave your comment below.
If you were to do this each and every day you will start to see huge changes in less than a month. The best part about 5 minutes a day is that it looks natural (not fake), and you can manage the workload. You don’t need to be a social media expert, you just need to take the 5 minutes a day to do it.
You may want to post to Linkedin, Google+, Weheartit, Vine… The list goes on. This strategy is the same no matter which social media you think is best for your business. The video provides many tips on how to make the most of your time on social media.
As they say “You have to be in it to win it”
Give it a go….
I challenge you to try this strategy for 1 month and if you don’t see an increase of traffic to your website I will do your social media for free for 1 year!
