Managing your Time on Social Media


One thing that crops up over and over again in my coaching sessions is that busy businesses don’t have the time to give to Social Media.

Simple tools to help

At Green Umbrella we use a simple tool to manage our time effectively. A timer! Yes, that’s right a timer! You wouldn’t believe the difference it makes to keep track of your time. We all know how easy it is to lose track of time; we hop on to Linkedin for a quick check of our home feed, just to see what is going on in the business world and next thing we’ve lost 2 hours …. Argh! No one in a busy business has the time to do that on a daily basis, do they?

In the office, we use the Allinof Timer that is free on Macs, or if we are working from home, we use the timer on our phones. We set it for 30 minutes for each platform for every account that we manage including our own. Also, if you are like me, I get easily distracted so I also use a Feed Burner for Facebook so that I don’t get distracted by my own Personal Feed when I am logging on to work on a Business Account.
