Social media is extremely popular in today’s world. There is a social media platform for basically anything you can think of.
Are You Social Media Satisfied?
Is your social media out of shape? Do you feel like you spend hours on it without ever getting the results you seek? Do you dump thousands of dollars into it with no profitable ROI? You are not alone.
Only 5% of companies are satisfied with their social media campaigns (based on a 2012 survey of more than 2,700 social media professionals conducted by Ragan/NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions.)
Of those respondents in the survey, many said they just don’t have time for social media. 38% of marketers spend 1-5 hours weekly on social media, 26% spend 6-10 hours and 15% spend more than 20 hours each week on social media. Despite this, only 5% said they were satisfied with their social media campaigns.
So what gives?
Isn’t social media supposed to be easy?
There are so many different social networking sites, marketing methods, rules to remember and procedures to follow that it can feel like taking on a second job. But it doesn’t have to be this difficult.
What is one reason so many brands struggle with their social media? They don’t have the right goals and they don’t have a plan. Too often people chase their tales, following after some one number or statistic or another, none of them really meaning anything. They're worried about who has the most Facebook fans or the highest Klout score. They're tracking metrics that don't matter.
Why? Usually because some "expert" told them to.
What if I told you that you could manage your social media in as little as 30-60 minutes per day and still be successful?
Just like great bodies don’t form overnight, social media success takes time and commitment. But it's only a fraction of your business life. It doesn't have to be your entire life. By doing a little each day you can reach your goals and then switch over to maintenance mode.
