As you get more and more sucked into social networking for your business it becomes increasingly important to ensure that you get the best efficiency out of the time that you spend. Maybe two or three years ago I would sit at my computer in a morning, open Outlook and check my mails, now it’s all to easy to do the same with all the social networking opportunities that are out there but it’s all too easy to find ourselves social networking from first thing in the morning until lunch time and then thinking “what have I achieved?”
I bet there’s many of you out there that can empathize with me so I’ve been doing a lot of work to ensure that whatever time I spend social networking is giving me a good return on my investment. In particular I find that Twitter is becoming more important in my daily routine so a lot of what I have to say revolves around some of the free Twitter tools out there but there are in addition some knock on effects to other business social networking sites too such as Facebook and Linkedin.
How do you ensure that when you Tweet you’re actually finding people and not just tweeting into a black hole? The first thing to do is to ensure that your followers are targeted, in other words people who are actually interested in what you are tweeting about. Getting targeted followers is a difficult job and to my mind I’ve so far only found one tool that does this for you with any degree of success and that you have to pay for.
There are free tools out there however that tell you whether your tweets (in fact the links) are being read and getting people to click through to your site or the product you are promoting and these include bit.ly.com and tinyurl.com – 2 link shortening sites. The service is in effect two fold because the link shortening first of all helps you get the most out of the 140 characters that you are allowed per tweet on Twitter but then each shortened link is also a unique code that allows the click through rate to be reported.
Monitoring this click through rate will help your work out how to write and target a tweet so that it gets read. Techniques to use include how you write the Tweet, ask a question rather than make a statement and also the time of day that you tweet. You may find that you get a better response to Tweets that go out at lunch time for example than those that go out in the evening.
Scheduling tweets brings me onto the next free software tool that you can use because let’s face it, none of us are awake 24/7 so being able to automate some of our tweets can really help. To do this there are a number of “dashboards” available and the functionality of these dashboards is growing fast. Some offer their own URL shortening and tracking service, all offer the tweet scheduling and in addition (and the reason why these sites are called dashboards) you can get a summary of all your social networking activities in one place at the same time.
Build your own Social Media Department and Capabilities – BWF Webinar
I am frequently asked by people what I think of social networking at large (having such a high profile on the World Wide Web), how on earth do I have the time to get involved given the incredible pressures I face on a daily basis running Blackhawk Partners and what do I really have to say that would be of interest to strangers? Well, all what I can tell you is that since I started my social networking journey back in 2004 (the same year I founded Blackhawk), I’ve met some wonderful people online, generated a ton of business, empowered thousands of entrepreneurs, and made some great discoveries. Having said that, I strongly encourage every self-made man out there seeking to build a solid “brand” to do the same. Frankly speaking, I don’t think this is about finding only people you know but rather pushing the envelope and getting out of your comfort zone.
How much personal vs. business?
My rule of thumb mix is about 20% personal, 30% interaction with others and 50% business. That’s what works for me, but it’s important to do what makes you stretch beyond your limits, yet still feels authentic.
How much time should I spend on social media sites? This depends on your goal. If it’s simply to get acquainted and see what happens, try 15-20 minutes 3 times a week. If you wish to build relationships, find resources, and gain business, then at least an hour a day may be required. I personally spend an hour a day out of my gruesome 12 hour a day work regimen on social networking.
How do I know if it’s working?
Success is measured in many ways, and like most marketing much of it isn’t directly measureable. I know that my presence on social media sites is working for me because I enjoy it; I’ve made it manageable (despite my over 10,000 connections already on 12 different social networking sites), met great people, learned a bundle, found amazing resources, and gained for Blackhawk at least a couple of hundred clients.
How do I find the time?
Well, I personally schedule my social networking time just like I would an appointment. I put it in my calendar and stick with it. Consider it marketing and know that it takes practice. I usually combine checking my email and checking out FaceBook, LinkedIn, aSW and Twitter – I schedule these activities into timeslot somewhere in my day. Nothing of course beats the one on one meetings….but this only after getting to really know the people I am meeting face to face.
Who do I connect with?
I am approachable to all, and I will try and answer all….unless people start sending me blind invitations to connect with no reason whatsoever or plainly asking me to forward a request (such as on LinkedIn) with no explanation why. My basic rationale is very simple: I don’t like to spam my friends. After all, social networking to me is not about collecting names. It is in my personal opinion mostly about Intelligence gathering and networking with like minded people for self and mutual empowerment.
So many people I know spend so much time worrying about someone disagreeing with them or thinking whatever…. Get used to it, these things happen. But isn’t that what makes this world such an interesting place? Everyone has an opinion and varying viewpoints. I find the social networking environment to be friendly and forgiving overall – enjoy it, make friends and just see what happens!
