Daily Social Media Checklist
Social media managers probably have one of the best jobs simply because they get an opportunity to engage with others and share helpful content on a daily basis.
However, as much fun as it is, it can also be a struggle and time consuming, especially if it is not carefully coordinated and executed.
A social media manager’s to-do list will vary depending on whether they are full-time managers or part-time. In addition, time spent on social media will vary depending on the number of platforms as well as the number of items on the daily checklist. Some managers prefer or work well with simple and less complicated checklists while others operate a detailed one.
There’s absolutely no one-size-fits-all checklist but most of the activities are equally important and hence cut across.
The constant hopping from one social media platform to another can sometimes be a daunting task, but if carefully planned, it can transform into a well-oiled routine – one that gets you results and drives up your engagement with your customer.
