You start out all guns blazing and open an account on every single platform. Then you’re stuck for ideas on what to post or realise how much time it actually takes to manage them all.
So you stop being consistent or even worse stop posting completely because you’re so overwhelmed. Sound familiar?
Here are 10 ways to reduce social media overwhelm and get you feeling more in control:
- Choose one or 2 platforms where your ideal clients hang out and focus on getting these the best you can.
- Have a clear idea of who your audience is and how you can help them – makes it easier to create content that resonates with them.
- Set boundaries/time limits.
- Turn off notifications
- Repurpose (reuse) existing videos/blogs/Website content to create social media posts
- Batch content when you’re in the groove
- Schedule over a week/2 weeks/ month – whatever works for you.
- Use the search function to look for industry-related content so you’re not distracted
- Make it a habit to engage on other people’s posts, even if you don’t post on that day. It’s called social media after all.
- Lastly, take a break if you need to. Social Media will still be there when you get back.
