On the “Mixtus Media” blog I found a great article, written by Jenn Hanson-dePaula. She provides us with advice about saving time working on our Social Media accounts. Thank you very much Jenn!
A big complaint that I hear from authors about social media is how much time it takes. They don’t want to waste what little time they do have on social media when they could be writing.
So imagine their surprise when I tell them that I spend no more than 30 minutes per week posting to social media. And about 5-10 minutes total each day responding to comments, liking posts and engaging with my audience.
Social media is very important to grow your audience, but it doesn’t need to take over your entire day.
I’d like to share my process so you can easily schedule your own social media posts ahead of time and be more productive.

Step One: Outline My Buckets
Last week I shared my approach to creating content buckets to make creating content for social media so much easier. Our personal content buckets currently consist of our blog posts, an informational tip, and a quote from another author.
When I first started this process I would take a piece of paper and write out each day of the week and list which content bucket would go for each day. As you’re starting this process, that might be helpful for you to do as well.
