6 Social Media Things to Do Before Breakfast
Posted on January 27th 2014
When you get involved in social media, you quickly learn that it requires regularity and discipline. Creating a daily routine is of course one of the best ways to approach this. Over time I have put together a 30-minute routine.
Here are the things I do before breakfast:
- Delete uninteresting/unwanted emails.
- Mark emails to be treated during the workday.
- Answer urgent emails.
- Check emails from LinkedIn groups for good content and mark for later reading.
- Review Google Alerts and mark interesting items with GetPocket.
- Social media monitoring
- Review social media monitoring dashboard and react appropriately.
- Go to Hootsuite and review monitoring columns and react appropriately.
- People Who viewed your profile is a perfect opportunity to start a conversation or even get connected (selectively).
- Contacts show people that have a New job, Birthday or Work Anniversary. This again is a great opportunity to start a conversation.
- Review LinkedIn Inbox for messages and connection requests.
- Check tweets that mention me and act appropriately
- Check new followers out
- Check who unfollowed me and decide on course of action (recapture or accept)
- Quickly review the recent Tweet stream
- Facebook & Google+
- Check personal and company timelines for posts from friends and fans
- Wish friends a Happy Birthday
- Check messages and take action if needed
- Content sharing
- Share my quote of the day or content from others across a number of platforms
- Contribute and share content through my Tumblr blog on Social Media tools
Having created this routine, I am able to start my day informed, organized and inspired. Since I have created this morning, I have also developed a similar approach for the evening routine. The evening routine focuses more on content generation but I will discuss this in another blog post.
Do you have a similar routine? Why not share it through the comments below. Or do you want details about any of the steps mentioned in my routine, send me a mail (email@example.com)
