How Much Time and Resources Do You Spend on Managing Social Media Each Week?

By Salil Sethi · Posted on Thursday, May 18, 2017 · Tagged in Online Marketing

Small Business Owners - How much time and energy do you spend on promoting your business on social media?

Do you use any tools, or have you considered tools that would save you time scheduling and posting updates to social media?

Great question! I feel that many business owners under estimate how much time is spent on social media management and marketing, especially if done the right way. So they end up not posting/engaging enough, which reduces the impact of what they have done and create ineffective ads, wasting money. Enter people like me―social media managers and strategists. We take this hassle off your hands and turn social media around into meaningful marketing strategies!

There are a number of schedulers that help, some of which are Hootsuite, Buffer, Sprout Social,... (more)

Thansk Natalie. Two follow ups:

1. From your experience working with small businesses, do you know how much time do savvy small businesses spend per week managing social media

2. Would be curious to know the source of your facebook prioritization grapevine ;)

I agree with Natalie. It seems that Facebook wants you to only use Facebook as a means of posting, and they are not too fond of outside videos either which would include YouTube.

there are several that work very well, I recommend Aweber for your email marketing, Leadpages for your sales funnel. As far as how much time should you spend, 20 mins a day, I do 3-5 posts per day and each take me 3-5 mins.

Hope this was helpful
