Effortlessly Stay Active In Social Media

It seems hard making time for social media in some circles. When you hear about it, it begins to seem like another 9-5 on the outside because we just don’t have the time. The amount of information being produced is rising and coming out faster than you can blink these days. It can make social media seem overwhelming. How do they expect you to stay active in that and get your work done? Easy. Here are a few tips that I’d recommend doing to stay active without spending and enormous amount of time using social media:

Scheduling Future Posts

– Use your blog’s editor such as Windows Live Writer or Twitter clients such as Hootsuite, to schedule anything from blog posts to links for Twitter.

– Use Twitter scheduling tools to announce upcoming announcements and promotions.

Benefit: Stop lagging behind the press and your competitors!

Benefit: More free time for other important works.

Post Everywhere Services

– These services are a God-send when used the right way, instead of for spamming communities. “Post everywhere” services are popping up all of over web. These services allow you to publish any of your content to your social profiles and social networks.

Pixelpipe, Ping.fm, and Posterous (my pose)are great examples of post everywhere services.

Benefit: You can stop going to each individual site now.

Benefit: Mobile support across multiple mobile platforms!
