Social media efficiency can be defined as “how to have the maximum impact possible with the minimum time and energy investment.”
Now in the beginning it will take you a little bit of time and quite a bit of effort to set up your life and business so that it has maximum social media efficiency…
But once they’re set up the benefits you will receive will pay off for the rest of your business‘ life in a way that you can’t even imagine!
So how do you set up these tools?
Here’s 5 simple steps that you can follow to get you going!
Step # 1: Use Google Alerts To Track Industry Keywords
If something big happens in your industry, you want to be able to comment on it immediately.
For instance, if you’re in the hard drive industry and Sony suddenly announces they’re going to slash hard drive prices by 30%, that’s something you want to know.
Google Alerts allows you to track certain keywords and get an email in case of major events.
Step # 2: Keep A List Of Ideas On You At All Times
Keep a journal on you to jot down tweet or update ideas.
Better yet, if you have a smartphone, just use your phone to jot down ideas as you go.
You can also use an app like HootSuite to schedule tweets or updates to go out in the future.
Just make sure you schedule them far enough in advance that you have time to review them at home before they go live.
Step # 3: Automatically Syndicate Blog Content
Automatically syndicate any blog post you write to your Twitter feed and your Facebook page.
There are many tools and WordPress plugins that make this easy for you.
Basically, whenever you make a new post, a shortened link is generated to your blog post.
Step # 4: Install “Buffer” For Chrome Or Firefox
Install the Buffer app, which allows you to post to your Twitter feed from within your browser.
You can schedule tweets to go out at a future time.
You can also easily share any web page that you see with the click of a button.
Step # 5: Use Hashtracking To Tweet Visible Tags
Hashtracking makes tracking the most visible tags a piece of cake.
This service allows you to find the tags that people are talking about in your industry, so you can join in on existing discussions.
Before you post, try to find a tag related to your industry that already has people talking about it.
These five steps will increase your social media efficiency and make your life a lot easier.
Getting your tools up and running could take a bit of time, but it more than pays for itself.
Success & Blessings!
