If your serious about using social media to reach out and connect with your audience, it’s important to have a process.

A process where you set your goals, create content around achieving those goals, decide when you’ll deliver that content and finally post it. Then, if you want your social media marketing to actually work, you have to be consistent, and by consistent I mean post updates at least 3 times a week on Facebook and once a day on twitter.

That’s a minimum of 10 posts a week, and is enough to put a lot of people off even bothering.

Streamling Social Media

But fear not, if you’ve been putting off using social media to promote your business because you don’t think you have the time to keep updating it regularly, there are wondrous online tools out there that can help you streamline your social media processes, and one of them is Buffer.
