Are you struggling to manage social media?

Social Media ClockSocial media is important to building a business but it requires dedicating a lot of time to manage the accounts.

To stop wasting time on social media, try using tools that will get the tasks done quickly. It's more than making posts. You should monitor the results. If you see your posts aren't engaging, getting shared, then you should consider the content you've posted and change to content that's more engaging. Remember people don't want to be sold so keep your posts to 80% interesting content and 20% marketing/sales.

This list of tools should reduce your social media workload and allow you to focus on managing your business.

Social Media Policies & Security

Does your company have a social media policy in place?
