How to Rock Social Media in 30 Minutes a Day [INFOGRAPHIC] | Social Media Today | Job Search | Scoop.it
With a defined social media strategy in place, marketers can rock social media in 30 minutes a day. Sound too good to be true? It is actually possible if your daily use of social media is built upon a well-developed social media strategy.
Amy Kimberlin's insight:

Are you are small business struggling to keep up with onine engagement or perhaps a job seeker with little time to invest?  


It's important that businesses/professionals understand how to simplify and manage their time across various networks.  This type of graphic should be as you begin work a "specialized" plan developed and assisted by an expert.  


A well defined social media strategy should be unique given the busines model, available time, currect audience/reach, as well as potential constraints and/or resources available.  Weather a small business, large company, personal brand, or combination (such as in a business where sales professionals individually need to expand their reach). 30-minutes may work in some situations for manitenence.  However, It MUST also incorportate additional time each week set aside for research/blog creation as well as time also allocated for scheduling out posts (usually involving additional tools for advanced scheduling, tracking, and repoting to let you know what is working where).


THE TAKE AWAY? CONSISTENCY, TIME MANAGEMENT, PROVIDING RELEVANT AND INTERESTING CONTENT (where appropriate), & FOLLOW THROUGH.  It's better to do something strategic each day rather than NOTHING.  It can be easy to get"lost" or off track reading and responding suddenly realizing hours have been lost in your day!
