You have all the time in the world, right? Wrong – You DON’T have all the time in the world. One of the biggest complaints I hear from my clients is that they just don’t have the time to everything they need to do online in order to stay visible and in front of their target clients.
And oh boy – do I hear their pain! I too feel the time crunch! There is so much we should be doing online, but keeping up with constant changes and new features on all the different social media sites – in addition to posting our status updates and tweets – sure can be a hair-raising and daunting task.
Well, I just wanted you to know that there are a couple of time-saving tools out there that you can use to help you stay connected even when you don’t have time. Going on vacation and afraid you’ll lose your visibility? No worries – I’ve got you covered. Let’s look at two really need time-saving social media tools you can start using today to keep you visibly and active AND help you track what’s working and what’s not.
