Question: How much time do you spend on social media, blogs?
Answer: It really depends of course on the client. I target the social medias that provide the most bang for buck. For most companies, JM Internet Group, included blogging is the #1 most productive activity as it helps both SEO and Social Media, by giving you something to talk about. So I try to create 3-5 blog posts per week (that’s about 3 hours). I also find Google+ very beneficial, so I spend a few hours there.
For clients, it would vary. Some are very Facebook oriented, as they are FUN businesses, so several hours there plus blogging.
What you quickly realize is that Social Media may be ‘free’ in terms of money but it certainly isn’t in terms of TIME. So you have to devote staff resources, and if at all possible, get your fans and community to create content for you.
