How often do you find yourself with ten spare minutes on your hands?

I bet it’s quite often – waiting for a client to turn up, waiting in your car outside school whilst doing the school run, waiting to go into a meeting, waiting for someone to hang up their phone so you can get through to them.

Don’t waste this valuable time

Use it wisely and you’ll be amazed at how far and wide you can market your business in those few spare moments.
Ten minutes is all you need to implement some of these little ‘social media’ tasks and to promote your business to a wider audience:
  • Post a short update via Facebook and Twitter about your product or service.
  • Carry out a quick overview of your LinkedIn profile and check everything is up to date.
  • Comment on a blog post written by an industry guru or one of your local reporters.
  • Send out a link to one of your best archived blog posts to your Social Media audience.
  • Answer a question posted by someone in your network on LinkedIn.
  • Add another press contact to your Key Contacts list Hootsuite, so that you can focus on tweets from key people.
  • Request a recommendation via LinkedIn – simply write a quick message and send it now!
  • Retweet a post by someone from your Key Contacts list.
  • Think of ideas for a couple of great blog posts and jot them down.
  • Scan your Twitter feed and Direct Message list looking for promotional people and unfollow them immediately.

Create a small checklist of little ‘social media’ tasks using the suggestions above and creating some of your own and then every time you find yourself with a few spare minutes, implement some of these tasks. 

Until next time, remember …

When you get into the routine of doing these little jobs regularly it really does pay dividends.
