SOCIAL MEDIA DE-STRESS
When it comes to these two words, "Social Media," many business owners cringe and a tidal wave of stress begins forming. This FREE way of promoting your business can be stressful, especially with how it's always changing. While I could throw out all sorts of strategies, I won't. To help de-stress this situation, I recommend, time-blocking your social media. You can go about it many different ways such as devoting a specific time each day or week, or maybe you just want to post things on the fly.
If you're leaning towards wanting to create quality media to get your customers and potential customers excited, I would suggest using a scheduling platform. They all have similarities, and it may not be until you begin using one that you find out it doesn't do what you want. That's why I recommend using their typical 7-Day Trial to test them out to find a good fit. More than likely you'll need to sacrifice some of the intricate "cool stuff" the actual platform offers, but you're helping reduce your stress levels by using a platform that let's you take care of business when it's convenient for you...some of the platforms I'd recommend you check out include:
