How To Avoid Social Media Overload

  1. Don’t try to be on every platform.
  2. Create consistent and compelling content.
  3. Use systems such as blog post each week with bullet points.
  4. Re-purpose content to other social media platforms that link back to the original post.
  5. Off-load things that you don’t need to do manually. Outsource to places like Upwork.
  6. Consider consolidating social media accounts.
  7. Double-Down on the creation of video.
  8. Place video native to Facebook: upload directly to FB (this will give you more exposure).
  9. Use Facebook Live: Facebook is giving a lot of attention to this.
