When it comes to social media, one of the biggest obstacles for businesses using it to its full potential is ⏲

"I don't have time for social media"

"I don't know how to create good posts in the short amount of time I have"

"I don't have time ... full stop to even think about social media"

Does this all sound familiar?

Here are my 5 TOP Social Media Time Saving Tips 👇

  1. Only post on 1-2 social media platforms for your business. Write posts that focus on initiating conversations and building relationships with your followers. By this point I'm guessing that you'll be thinking..."Okay, Dane, I hear you! But! Which platforms should I be on for my business?"

  2. Have a 'memo app' handy on your phone or download 'Todoist' on your desktop to capture ideas for your social media posts as and when they come to you. Struggling with ideas for your social media posts? Here are 6 Tools for Social Media Content Inspiration 
  3. Block out time each week to write your social media posts. By doing this, you can focus on running your business, not scrambling about thinking "[INSERT CURSE WORD OF CHOICE HERE], I didn't do any social media posts this week!" Check out this Streets Ahead Social Social Media Calendar Template to help you plan your posts
  4. Create recurring social media initiatives. Whether this be e.g. the A-Z of Legislation, Testimonial Tuesday, Throwback Thursday etc. taking part in these initiatives will not only improve your social media posting consistency but also save you time!
  5. Create social media graphic templates that can be used again. Standardise the social media graphics you use for e.g. testimonials, quote of the week etc. These can be created for FREE using Canva or Stencil
