Are You Social Media Satisfied?

social media fitnessIs 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 tails, 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?

Writing about my life… this is something I have struggled with from time to time throughout my business. I know great bloggers are amazing storytellers. I have stories to tell. Yet far too often it seems the really good ones never make it out there in the way that they should.

This is a general, total body workout, meaning we’re going to address all of social media and not a specific platform. Sometimes it’s good to go through all of your accounts in a general sense and make sure they’re looking good. I do this about once a month.
