Keeping up with social media can get difficult, especially if you have a lot of accounts to deal with at the same time. Outsourcing your social media marketing can be the best way to keep your accounts active, engaging and relevant.
Here are 3 tasks a virtual assistant can help you with to maintain a strong social strategy:
- Pre-Writing and Scheduling Posts
With the right direction and maybe a few examples, a professional virtual assistant can write posts or link to relevant articles that can be pre-scheduled using a social media management tool like Hootsuite,Tweet Deck, or Buffer. This will ensure that your social reach stays active and your brand stays top of mind to your followers or fans.
- Researching Topics for Blogs
Having someone research topics for your blogs posts can be the perfect task for a virtual assistant. Most blogs posts can then be shared or linked through your social reach, which in turn can help drive traffic to your website.
- Monitoring Social Engagement, and Reputation Management
If you are actively using social media or digital advertising to market yourself or your business, it is important to monitor your digital footprint. A virtual assistant can take on that role, and respond to questions or comments, or let you know that a response is needed. Having someone monitoring Yelp or other review websites can help you establish and protect your company’s reputation.
If you have reached the point where you no longer have the time to do it all and you are spending a lot of your business hours doing online marketing tasks then it’s time to work with a virtual assistant.
