Everyone is on social media, right?!
Fun fact… I actually met my husband on MySpace back in 2005. Remember that fun world of ranking people in your top ten list?? Yep, he rocked that number one spot. Anyway…..
Your future clients are on social media. They are sharing photos, talking on newsfeeds, connecting with like minded people and making purchases based on what they are seeing.
I’ve built 99.3% of my three businesses on social media alone.
I say that because there’s a couple people in my family who felt bad for me when I started and bought my first product (thanks dad!)
But something I see across the board is that entrepreneurs can get overwhelmed when it comes to social media. In the scheme of everything you have on your to do list, making graphics, coming up with content and take photos while you are in the middle of running errand number 3,938 for the day…. social media is the last thing on your mind.
So how do you handle it all? Here’s my top three time savers when it comes to building on social media. I hope they help you as well!
1. ContentGems.com: Being on social media is all about providing value to your audience right? Here’s what most don’t realize though… providing value doesn’t have to mean that you come up with it all yourself. Sharing is caring and sharing other people’s content edifies both them AND you. You are the connector. The connector to great value – yours and others.
This site allows you to identify keywords of the topics your audience would find the most value in (e.g. some of mine are productivity, entrepreneur and mindset). Each day or each week (you can set what you prefer), I receive an e-mail list of ALL of the blogs out there that have been written recently that match any of those keywords. All shareable social media content.. no searching for hours!
2. Instagress.com: Are you an Instagramer? If so, this is about to start saving you a TON of time! A big part about building a business on IG is connecting with like minded people. Liking and commenting on their photos to open the door to that relationship. Where does that leave us? Endlessly scrolling through hashtags for our niche looking for people to reach out to. Helloooo time suck! This site does all that FOR YOU! You can identify all of the hashtags you want it to search through and it will go ahead and like the photos that match your hashtags.
Ready for the extra bonus?? This tool can even COMMENT on posts for you as well! Simply save some of your usual responses (e.g. mine are “love this!,” “so true!”.. and so on with an emoji). All you have to do is share your awesome photos and let Instagress handle followers coming to you.
3. Buffer.com: Schedule daily posts for not only your social media accounts but also in Facebook groups you run for your clients or potential clients. I use this for ALL of my groups and even my Twitter account as well.
In the middle of putting a new product/website together? Schedule out everything for your social media two weeks in advance and let it run while you focus on reaching that deadline!
There you have it! A few tools that I am using currently to rock my social media!
Remember, it’s not about the time you are spending in your business each day but what you are DOING with that time.
Heres to the freedom-filled life you deserve!
