Rock Social Media Done in 30 Minutes a Day [INFOGRAPHIC]

Every blogger out there knows the importance of social media. Social media platforms are amazing tools you can use to get your voice out there and your blog heard. It’s also a way for you to hear from your readers; to know what they want or don’t like.

When people first get started using social media it’s fun and exciting. Unfortunately, as time goes on it can become tedious and time-consuming.

It’s something that gets put on the back burner when other important things come up.

What you need to remember is that social media is important. It can’t be put on the back burner, it has to get done.

I want to stress the fact that social media doesn’t have to take hours to do. It is actually possible to get all your social media done in 30 minutes a day.

The following tips will help you plan ahead for your social media so you can use it as an actual tool and get the most out of it.

 

1. Get Rid of Low-Impact Social Media Platforms:

Many bloggers get so caught up in social media that they sign up for every platform that’s out there. They spread themselves so thin that they can’t stay on top of their workload.

Depending on your blog there are certain social media platforms that you don’t need to be pushing. Pinterest and Instagram are examples of some of these. If your blog is based on ideas, business, teaching, self-improvement, etc., it can be difficult to find or create enough images to make using these platforms worth it. After all, you can only use so many memes before memes become you niche!

If images are hard to come by within your niche, don’t waste your time trying to force image-based platforms to work for you, move onto other more useful platforms.

2. Create a Posting Calendar:

Once you know which social media platforms you want to focus on, decide how often you want to post something on each platform. Make a schedule, write down each platform and whether you will be posting daily, weekly, 3x a week, etc.

You also need to determine a time each day that you will spend 30 minutes working on social media. Try to make it the same time every day, this will keep it consistent and become more of a habit for you instead of an extra task you have to find time for.

3. Plan Out Your 30 Minutes:

Break up your time into 5-10 minute increments. Only spend a short time on each platform. Not every day will be the same. There are things that only need to be done once a week and others that need to be done daily. Write out your schedule and post it by your computer so you will be able to see it.

4. Plan for the Next Week:

Instead of planning for the current week, try to get ahead of schedule and plan your next weeks’ postings. Prepare a week in advance any comments you want to make, links to post, pictures to add and where you want all of them to go. This allows you to use your time posting instead of sitting there trying to come up with something on the spot.

When you are scheduling your 30 minutes, give yourself the last 10-15 minutes a couple times during the week to prepare for the next week. You will find that your posts flow together better and have a common theme; it will also follow your niche better.

5. Use GremlinSocial:

GremlinSocial is a social media tool you can use to schedule posts and messages to your major social networks. Once a week gives you 5-10 minutes to get on GremlinSocial and schedule your posts for the upcoming week. You can schedule them to from anywhere such as 3 times a day, down to 3 times a week, whatever works best for your blog.

6. Stay on Task:

This is possibly the hardest and most important step. The reason it’s so difficult is because social media is so distracting.

You see one article you want to read and then another and another. Two hours later you find yourself on YouTube watching clips of The Ellen Show.

    Hey Tabish,

    Social media is helpful to drive more traffic to the blog. But most of the people use it in the wrong way.

    Getting rid of the useless platforms is important. Use only the authentic social media networks.
    You have mentioned great points here.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Really good post, Muhammad!

    I totally agree with #6. Social media networks are great to promote your content. But it can be very easy to get sucked into them that hours already passed by and you’re still there. One way that I found to be helpful is to do my posting on my iPhone instead on my laptop, especially with Facebook because they separated the Pages admin app from the actual Facebook app so I get limited to just updating my page, and not get tempted check the news feed.
