You will find there are times when there is no time for social media.
Let’s hope so. Hopefully, you’re busy on your core business: project work, client meetings, billing & invoicing, display merchandising, inventory – all that other stuff that is part of doing business successfully.
I have one of those days today. Thankfully, with careful planning and preparation, I’ll get the things which need to be done – done. And I prepare for the social media stuff too.
- Using my RSS reader and Twitter list, I’ve scheduled a few tweets. I didn’t find a lot (I don’t just tweet anything), but enough to feed the stream.
- I copy-edited some client work and put the posts in scheduled mode so their posts go out in time.
- I’ll be behind a steering wheel driving country roads for 5 hours today (2.5 each way), but I’ve brought one of my favorite tools with me – an Olympus voice recorder (non-affiliate product search).
I often listen to audio books when I drive,but when a thought or blog post starts to bubble up, I turn off the book and turn on the recorder. I don’t know about you, but I can talk faster than I can type – so I can get a lot of words down this way. Plus, I use transcription software when I get back to a computer to put the speech-to-text.
When you find yourself in a position where the social media is a hardship, how do you make it easy (because it still needs to be done). How do you prepare for social media?
