It is important to not get overwhelmed while promoting your business via social media. The best way to avoid wasting your precious time is to create a social media marketing calendar.
Choose at least five social media platforms that are easy for you to navigate. Set aside a specific amount of time everyday market on those five social media sites. Stick to your plan by sticking to your calendar. After you have made a habit out of promoting your business with the five social media sites, then add a couple of more social media sites to gain additional followers.
An effective way to build your authority and promote your business at the same time is to take the opportunity to share your expertise via your blog.
