My Social Media System Part 2

My Social Media System post from yesterday – my system for managing all the social media activity struck a cord with many of the folks struggling with ways to get all this done and still do the stuff of the business.

At the suggestion of one reader I’ve asked a dozen of so others that are very active in social media to share their systems with the idea that this kind of example might make a great collection.

I asked Chris Brogan; Brian Clark; Seth Godin; Guy Kawasaki; Paul Chaney; aaron wall; Anita Campbell; Anil Dash; Ann Handley; Ben McConnell; Bryan Eisenberg; Chris Baggott; Emily Chang; Ivan Misner; Jason McCabe Calacanis; John Battelle; Lee Odden; Li, Charlene; Rohit Bhargava; Scott Allen; Steve Rubel; Tim Berry; Tim Ferriss; Mack Collier (this isn’t the end all list, I just happen to communication regularly with this group)

If you would like to see this kind of blog post and collection of social media routines from this group or anyone you think should be included harass them to share and send me a note so we can put these together as a cool collection of real-life use.

    I would love a series like this. There are so many accounts to update and tools to manage them, hearing how others manage the firehose and distribute themselves over the social web would be really valuable. It’ also something that businesses new to social media ask about. Often, they’re afraid to jump in because they’re worried about the time suck. Being armed with more tips than just my own system would be great.

    Thanks.

    When crossing a mine field, follow someone.

    Being permitted to peak behind the curtain of professionals whom we want to imitate and learn how they manage the reins and steer the oxen of their social media program instead of allowing it to run amok would benefit so many of us.

    I appreciate being able to read today’s example comparing different businesses which measure different outlooks to come to the same foundation — Social Media is necessary and pays off.

    I agree that a series of more tips would be good. Advice and ideas is what we are all looking for, right?

    Yes! Yes! Yes! We, too, would love a series like this. We work primarily with Christian non-profits who mostly don’t understand or don’t use social media very well. Watching and learning from the experts is the best way to help our circle of “friends.”

    Yes, I’d like to see this series as well. I’m brand new to this and fear spending all my time on the web and not taking care of my clients.

    I think it would be extremely useful to have a variety of systems to review and consider … that way those of us following this post will be able to mix and match and put together a best-fit system for ourselves.

    Love this idea. Like others commenting, a huge concern is the time commitment. Running a small business, I need to spend a lot of time with clients. I’d love to be able to use social media to add value for current clients as well as enhance new business efforts.

    This is exactly what I need. I have a social media strategy and I am implementing it but I never thought about managing it all. It has been a struggle for me.

    I have enjoyed watching these people share their social media strategies. I find that I spend about 15 hours managing my sm schedule. Here is my daily, weekly, and monthly plan: http://www.stevegasser.com/how-much-time-should
