Finding time to do anything takes effort! If you’re working a full-time job it’s not always easy to find time to do everything you want to do in a week. If social media feels like a chore but you need it for your side hustle or business, below are some tips for scheduling time to use social media into your busy life.
- Figure out how often you need to post. If you’re unsure of how much you want to post, check out my recommendations here. This will help you first determine how much time you need to devote to it either daily or weekly.
- Add a reminder to your calendar. If you really don’t want to have to think about when to go on and just want to be told, then set a reminder for yourself using your calendar or your phone alarms. Get more tips on setting reminders for yourself here.
- Make it a habit. Another option is to make it a habit. Every morning, in addition to reading the news, I also spend 15 minutes checking my social media accounts. I don’t feel stressed because it’s automatic at this point. If I don’t have the time to go over it all then, at least I’ve done a quick glance to see what I may want to do later that day or the next.
Those are three quick tips I hope help you out and that I use in my life. Please leave any questions or comments below!
