Social Media Tips

Social Media includes Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram and many others.  People often ask how often they should post.  It’s really up to your market.  It is hard to know exactly how many, but it should be a number you are comfortable with and that your viewers won’t feel like you are bombarding them.  You don’t want to get a bad reputation in the social media world.  I suggest you start conservatively with even fewer than this recommendation.  I don’t suggest this company, but the graphic is a pretty standard approach as to how often to post to each media.

Having a Social Media Plan is key to it being a successful tool for your business.  Focusing on a plan will help you know what you have told your followers and where you might lead them next.  It’s important to have a plan so you don’t repeat yourself and then loose their interest.  The worst thing that could happen is that your post items that are of no value to your following.  Again I don’t suggest this company, but here is a standard plan for posting to Social Media.
