Managing your business, your family and your social media can be tricky, but here are 3 easy steps to consider to “be social.”

3 Tweets

Set up 3 tweet updates to go out during high traffic times.  Those times are usually 9am, 12pm, and 5pm when people are usually checking their Twitter account.

You can schedule these tweets using programs like Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, Twitterfeed.

 

2 Facebook Updates

Post consistently and throughout the day.  You don’t want to over post and become annoying or a spammer, but you want to make sure that your audience sees your posts.  You can manage this with scheduled posts by using Hootsuite or PostPlanner.

Keep your posts interesting with photos, links, a call to action message.  Varying up different multimedia content for your Facebook posts will keep your audience engaged.

 

1 Blog Post

Are you an impulsive blogger or do you plan your blogs posts?  You need to “blog smarter”  by planning your next week’s blogs by Darren Rowse, ProBlogger.

I know that people have a hard time blogging because they can’t always think of things to write about.  But there are different options to find great content:

  • Private Label Rights Articles (PLR) are a fantastic way to add new content to your website or blog and fill up your newsletter or autoresponder.
  • Hire Ghostwriters
  • Request “Guest Blog Posts”

 

To keep these posts organized it’s best you create a blog calendar.  I know a lot of people that use excel spreadsheets or Google Docs to coordinate your blog schedule.
Make sure to always use a “share” button at the end of your blog posts so your content can be shared.  You can see mine a the bottom of this post.
Create an RSS with like Feedburner, so people will be notified when you have uploaded a new blog post.
