Updating your social networks
Important note on Facebook posts: I suggest that you ask your VA to use Facebook’s internal scheduling feature instead of Hootsuite.Facebook can have issues with third party apps, where posts scheduled using such tools actually get less exposure – so keep that in mind for the ‘big brother’ of social media.And if you’re eyes are glued to this article right now, I’m assuming, pretty heavily, that you want the same thing.Here’s the thing – except for Twitter, I’m not the biggest social media fan. It sucks time away from the important things in life (not just business), and ultimately takes over certain times of your day – for whatever reason.) every day telling you who’s been mentioning you across the web.You simply click on the links to see what they said, and can react accordingly – if it’s a simple ‘thanks for mentioning me’, or ‘hey, lets talk and sort this out’.
This same survey, by Vertical Response, revealed that one in three small business owners want to spend less time on social media.This is where it’s really handy to have a VA as your wingman.They can help you set up alerts and feeds to monitor mentions of your name, your products and services, your brand, etc., across the internet.A while ago I started a series of posts called ‘Going Virtual’ here on the blog, where with each post I’m focusing on a specific topic when it comes to running a business in today’s marketplace, as well as whats possible when you team up with a virtual assistant to help you manage that particular aspect of your business and the types of tasks they can handle for you.So far in the series we’ve looked at working with virtual staff to help you manage your blog, as well as marketing your blog and handling email for you.
