There are a ton of people doing content marketing right now, but most of them aren’t thought leaders. Thought leaders aren’t just bloggers, or even the people speaking at conferences. Thought leaders are the people who drive conversations, influence others and shape perceptions in any given industry.
Ian Cleary from RazorSocial outlines a few simple steps to audit your social media marketing in a few simple questions and assess whether it's time to change something or not.
The most important question is probably #2: are you attracting an audience that converts?
I remember we had this debate with @Ally Greer in the early days of our community management: we realized that posting pictures of cats or inspiring quotes from famous people would get us a lot of likes on Facebook. But what good did it bring to us as a business? Not much...
Now a lot of businesses don't even stand a chance at converting social media traffic because they're mostly just sharing links and not directing traffic to their own websites. While they direct traffic to their websites when they share their own blog posts, they fail to do so with the content they curate. The first step to consider to convert social media traffic is to create a hub for your social media content and your created content: your blog is probably the perfect candidate for that (if you're wondering how to do that, check our guide to adding curated content to your blog).

With the recent mobile explosion, the need for a fast-loading website has never been greater. Your average website visitor is only going to wait so long for a page to load before they give up and move on to another site.
If you’re anything like me, you learned how to use programs like Photoshop and Gimp out of necessity to do minor changes to photos. You might have even dabbled in some easier graphic design projects for your own website, but it takes you hours to get the image or the design looking just right and you’re left exhausted. You might even spend time looking up tutorials on how to achieve a certain effect and still have trouble re-creating it.
In short, while you do know your way around the programs like Photoshop to a certain extent, it takes you forever and there’s absolutely no way you’d call yourself a graphic designer. But then, you’re surfing around the web and you noticed some really cool infographics on things like fashion, music and food and you can’t help but wish that you could create something like that; even if it’d take you a week....
At first, spending under half an hour on managing social media may sound like a tall order, especially considering that an average user spends approximately 3 hours on social media per day. Before you commit to the new schedule, analyze your current one: which social media network do you visit first? Do you go through the same steps for each network every time, or prioritize your actions on the spot?
Another important consideration before you create your speedy social media management plan is what social networks your business needs to be on. Time equals money, especially for a small business—each minute wasted on a social network your audience doesn’t frequent is a minute you could spend interacting with your current and potential customers on a different channel. In the sample plan, we will go over the 5 major networks—Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Instagram—and steps you can follow with each one.
Instead of dividing your plan by network, we’ve divided it by blocks dedicated to an important social business activity. You may go over the 18-minute mark in the first few tries as you adjust to the new rhythm; but once you familiarize yourself with the routine, you will never waste a minute on extraneous social media activity again. Become a social media management rockstar with this 18-minute-a-day social media plan for small businesses.
