Social Media management in 60 minutes a day

How much time do you think it takes to manage an effective social media strategy? If you said days or even weeks, you’re partially correct – if you run a social media agency. If  you’re just managing your own social media accounts, you can do social media management in just 60 minutes a day!

60 minutes a day on social media? Really? It can be done.

Social Media time management

Learning how to manage your social media accounts in just 60 minutes a day takes discipline. It also means you need to focus on what your goals are when you logon to a site.

We’re all guilty (myself included) of going on Facebook for one thing and then spending hours just browsing.

This plan assumes that you already have a social media strategy in place.

What you are learning about is how to split up your time spent on social media activities in 60 minutes per day. This way you can use that time towards being productive in other areas.

Social Media management in just 60 minutes a day

To effectively do social media management in 60 minutes a day, here’s the recipe you need for creating the perfect social media cocktail:

  • Content curation (15 minutes)
  • Blogging (15 minutes)
  • Facebook (10 minutes)
  • Twitter (5 minutes)
  • LinkedIn (5 minutes)
  • Google+ (5 minutes)
  • Social bookmarking (3 minutes)
  • Analytics (2 minutes)
  • Wasting time (0 minutes)

Total time: 60 minutes

There is no time allotted for wasting time, so you’ll need to be sure you have this down to a science.

Also, while it lists spending 15 minutes blogging, this doesn’t mean you’ll be writing an entire blog post in 15 minutes (wouldn’t that be awesome). Instead, you’ll want to use the 15 minutes to do a little writing each day to complete a post.
