9 Solutions to Shorten your Social Media Marketing Time

Don’t like spending too much time on social media marketing?

Just putting the finishing touches on my book, LinkedIn Marketing: 8 Best Tactics to Build Book and Business Sales.

In the first book chapter, you’ll see the many reasons to choose Linkedin as your primary social media marketing approach.

In the second chapter, you learn how to save more much more time by not collecting numbers that really aren’t in your book or business audience. These audiences can be a bit different too, and you need to market to both of them.

In the next chapters, you will learn how to edit your profile for many more views and get people who want to connect with you.

And you’ll see how to implement step-by-step the 8 best tactics to market with Linkedin. You’ll discover the secrets as to why and how to join certain Linkedin groups-the key to bigger visibility and credibility.

One chapter shows you all about making your blog site more visible and getting only your targeted audience there. It shows you how to interact with your readers and keep them coming!

And, the final chapter shows you how to save a lot of marketing time by easily testing which of your social media marketing is working and which are not. Then you can go to where the gold is-Linkedin. Test your Linkedin success using several programs such as Alexa, and Google rankings. Without regular testing you may be spinning your wheels.

The one problem you may still have that needs to be addressed is that you think you don’t have time to do this marketing!

Here’s 9 Solutions to Shorten your Social Media Marketing Time

1. Test monthly with Google Analytics to see how many of your Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin audience is coming and staying at your site so that your bounce rate is low. Are they just staying to read your blog and don’t click any links to opt-in or buy? If your bounce rate is low, meaning the longer your audience is on your site, the better chance for book and business sales.

2. Alternate your writing for your blog, participating in your Linkedin groups, and keeping your life healthy and happy. As entrepreneurs, we always have the challenge of our work and life blending.

To me writing is my happiness. I also do a little delegating, and love my walks to the lake nearby several days a week. Like me, you can incorporate yoga and other stretches right at your work station. Before I even get out of bed, I do a short series of stretches and awaken my adrenals-all to start my day with jump out of bed energy!

3. Educate yourself on what you don’t know. As a low-techie myself I practiced offline marketing many years ago that was so time consuming with a low payoff. I decided to bite the bullet 11 years ago, and got online, put a selling website up, wrote and used article marketing and social media promotion. Now, instead of reaching few, my messages reach over tens of thousands each month. I learned how to make my social media profitable! I made changes in where I spend my time.

And if you don’t educate yourself by joining Linkedin groups, reading the how to discussions, reading a how to book, listening to a how to teleseminar, or getting one on one inexpensive coaching, you must not care enough about your book’s success. Yes, it takes a village.

5. Know and accept that online marketing, especially with your blog and Linkedin updating, is the easiest and fastest way to go from unknown to known and respected.

6. Ask yourself why are you writing your book, your blog and your sales pages for your business? You want the rewards of people paying attention to your great tips and messages, don’t you? You also may want to make your writing produce profits, so you can keep going with your message that makes a difference in your audience’s lives.

7. Know that the author, YOU, is the one who can promote your offerings the best. You probably won’t’ be on Oprah, or on the Today show. Get realistic and know that if you don’t spread the good news about you, who will? And with Linkedin social media, it’s almost free depending on how fast you want to be noticed. With some kind on coaching, you put your right messages out sooner, and get more action sooner.

8. Invest in your book and business. It’s not spending to promote and market because these are the only ways you’ll get noticed. Social Media marketing guarantees financial success if you do it right. You can correct any mistakes you unknowingly make with some good advice and hands on showing how to do it.

Forget hope, and act accordingly. You can control your marketing time and make it a happy time.

9. Use Self Discipline. I define self-discipline as to stop doing what hurts me. Think about what’s hurting you. Distractions like over eating, over TV watching, too much time on email?

Finally, focus on the 8 best social media tactics that will catapult you to recognition, popularity, and respect in your particular arena.
