How To Be Successful on Social Media While Spending Less Time

We all have the same amount of time in a day, but how come it seems like some people get so much more done?

They have learned how to be efficient! 

When it comes to social media, this is so important. Nobody wants to feel like they are spending all day on their social media platforms and when you are efficient, you don’t have to. 

Being efficient will allow you to grow a following and attract your ideal patient without spending a lot of time doing it. 

So, how can you be more efficient? Here are some tips! 

Most importantly, you need to have a purpose and create a plan to achieve that purpose.

Before you sit down to spend time on social media, you need to decide on a goal for that period of time. 

Are you trying to post content? Engage with future clients? Respond to messages or comments? Once you decide on the task, it will be easier to focus on it.

We all know how easily time passes when we open an app and start scrolling, that is exactly what you want to avoid. 

When you have a plan for what you want to do, you can open up the app with that task in mind and stick to it. When you’re done, get off your phone…it’s that easy! 

You will find yourself accomplishing more with less time when you are intentional about how you use your time and planning it out in advance will help you make that happen. 

Another huge time saver is batching your content, or creating it ahead of time.

What this looks like is you creating content for a set period of time (two weeks, a month, etc) during one work session. This allows you to really get creative and focus on what you want to share on social media for a longer period of time. When you finish, you have a set of cohesive content that also helps you achieve your goals. 

You will be able to create higher quality content when you take the time to sit and focus on it and make multiple pieces of content at one time. 

Having the content ready to go means that when it’s time to post, all you have to do is grab the post and caption that you have ready to go, log in, and post it. This will save so much time as opposed to having to think about what you are going to post each time you log in. 

You’ll find that doing these things should also help you to have more fun on social media, which is important. This is a key part of your job but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. 

If you want to find your ideal client, you need to show up authentically as yourself and when you’re using your time efficiently you will find that it is a lot more fun and less overwhelming. 

That will come across on your social media and you will begin attracting your ideal patients.

Have a beautiful day!
