It’s 9:00 at night, and you’re still working. After you finish the work you’re doing for a client, you need to schedule the rest of the week’s social media posts, balance the books, respond to e-mails, and check your voicemail, which is nearly full.
Almost all business owners and entrepreneurs have been there – when you’re growing a new business, there just aren’t enough hours in a day to tackle your perpetually growing to-do list.
Some help would be great, but you don’t have the budget to hire someone as an assistant, and the workload can be unpredictable.
Social media marketing has the potential for immense success and smaller businesses can especially benefit from the various, affordable ways to reach out to their target audience and engage in customer service.
At the same time, a simple brand presence on your favorite social media network is not nearly enough. Successful marketing in this environment requires a significant and consistent time investment.
How much time should you spend on social media to market your business?
The answer depends on a number of variables. Still, understanding these variables, and knowing which of them to prioritize, can give you a better idea of how to plan your time for maximum marketing success.

In the social media world, this means Text and Link posts are on their way out (very soon!) and only Photo and Video posts will remain. For this reason (and in an effort to continue to innovate and stay ahead of competing social media tools) today I am excited to announce the removal of the ability to add/edit text for posts in your lists.
Today’s AI is about new ways of connecting people to computers, people to knowledge, people to the physical world, and people to people.
