It’s very easy to be distracted by everything going on in social media and to lose focus on your objectives. You intended to go to Facebook to post an update about your services but were sidetracked by a post you saw. Next thing you know it’s been thirty minutes and you’ve forgotten to post your update!
How do you maintain your focus on your social media objectives and not get sidetracked?
Here are a couple of tips I’ve used:
- Type out the post you intend to share and have it up on your screen ready to go with hashtags, image, and shortlink.
- Set a timer for 10 minutes. Then if you have been sidetracked, the timer will remind you to get back to task and not to waste more time.
Remember what your objectives are when posting to your social media networks and don’t allow yourself to get sidetracked by trivia. You can schedule that for another time!
