6 Hour Social Media Strategy

6 Hour Social Media Strategy

According to Social Media Examiner –

25% of Small Businesses Spend 6 – 10 hours

each week on social media marketing.”

I asked my network what they thought – many of my followers responded that even if they had that time to spare – they wouldn’t know what they should be working on.

That got me thinking what a 6-hour social media strategy could look like –

To keep things simple I’m going to focus on 3 platforms – Facebook, LinkedIn & Houzz.

8:00 a.m.

  • Post to Facebook – Share a tip / cool photo / ask a question

20 mins

12:00 p.m.

  • Respond to any comments on your Facebook post.
  • Scroll your Facebook Feed, see if there is anything that you can comment on.
  • Scroll your LinkedIn Feed, see if there is anything that you can share or comment on.

20 mins

4:30 p.m.

  • Respond to any of your Facebook or LinkedIn comments. If no comments, find something to comment on.

10 mins

8:00 p.m.

  • Scan the Houzz discussion board, see if there is anything for you to comment on.

10 mins

This strategy gives you an hour per week of cushion… You can search for more content worth sharing, create your own or have a glass of wine… 😉

There is a lot time allocated for responding and interacting with your network. That’s one of the most important things that you can do –

“Focus on listening and responding not shouting at your community”

The above times are suggestions, pick whatever times work for you. I try to “check in” every 4 – 5 hours when I can.

Once you get into a rhythm you can alternate your posts between the different platforms.

You will also be surprised at how much you can do from your phone while you’re waiting on line at Starbucks or watching TV.

Having a social media plan doesn’t have to take up your entire day.
