Social Business

Nobody Said Social Media Was Easy

Social media isn’t inexpensive, it’s different expensive.

In the QA portion of recent speeches, I’ve frequently been asked “this is great, but doesn’t it seem like it will take a lot of time?”

Yes. It. Will.

social media time management 300x192 Nobody Said Social Media Was EasySucceeding on the social Web requires daily participation. Whether it’s brand reputation management, PR and influencer outreach, customer service and social CRM, interacting with fans on a brand community, or just creating content that builds thought leadership – it all takes time.

Fundamentally, there are no shortcuts in social media, because the entire premise is that you’re interacting with customers one on one (or one on few). That is of course more time consuming than reaching hundreds, thousands, or millions of customers at one time with a paid advertisement. How could it not be so?

The only way America is even keeping its head above the global water line is by squeezing every last drop of productivity out of all of us. Please raise your hand if you’re working fewer hours these days than you did five or ten years ago. Exactly. Unless you’re somehow on Justin Bieber’s management team, you’re probably busting your hump like never before, tethered to the world by the iWhatever. So, I recognize that you probably don’t have the time to really commit to social media, and neither does anyone on your team.

So, you have two options.

Social Media Time Management

First, you have to make the time. How much time do you spend sending, reading, and receiving emails each day? One hour? Two? Well guess what? 15 years ago we didn’t spend any time on email. But, we made the time to include it in our lives, because the net benefit was incredibly positive. The same is true of social media.

You and your compadres in your organization need to perform a serious audit of how you’re spending every minute of every day (especially in the marketing and customer service arenas). You need to do whatever you can to tie behavior and time utilization to business results. Then, you need to jettison what you’re doing that isn’t a clear net positive, and use that newfound time vacuum to fit in daily social media participation.

I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

The second option is to grow bigger shoulders.

social media time management 2 300x214 Nobody Said Social Media Was EasyOf course, you need to do a lot of the social media tasks within your four walls. There are exceptions, but it’s difficult to outsource your voice. But, maintaining a hand on the steering wheel of your persona does not mean that you need to have a stranglehold on every social media facet like a dog on a pork chop.

Couldn’t you have a lot more people in your company creating content? Maybe they aren’t great writers. But video blog posts? Consider your fans – your advocates – your 1%ers – your volunteer marketing army. Couldn’t you use them more effectively? Couldn’t you “promote” some of them, and have them help you monitor and respond to blog posts, create Facebook status updates, and so forth?

Remember back in the mid-90s when AOL was the KING of online? (I do, and still have about 6,713 AOL install CDs around here somewhere). At one point, AOL had literally thousands of chat rooms about every topic imaginable. You remember chat rooms? To keep even a modicum of peace in the far flung chat empire, AOL had to have moderators for each chat room. It wasn’t feasible for AOL to do so itself, as the personnel cost would have been extraordinary. Instead, they found the most frequent participants in each room, put them through some sort of ad hoc “freak filter” and then invited the normal folks to become moderators. Compensation was discounts on AOL service, and the social recognition that comes along with being the official moderator of your chat room on Civil War Weaponry.

That concept of fan promotion, of “leveling up” gives you access to a tremendous amount of free labor, and simultaneously strengthens bonds between your brand and its biggest fans. It works for forums and discussion boards, too. Patrick O’Keefe talk about it in his excellent book Managing Online Forums (I reviewed it here).

It’s Not Easy Being Breezy

Talk about being given an inch, and wanting to take a yard. Here we have a new paradigm that focuses at last on relevant, personalized communications AND costs almost nothing, and yet people are still apoplectic about it taking a lot of time? Nobody said social media was both transformative AND a slam dunk. It’s hard. Really hard. So you either need to make the time internally, get more people involved, or stay on the sidelines.

You can’t have it both ways.

    Wow, Jay, couldn't agree more- well put – be prepared for a BARRAGE of retweets… :-)

    Glad you said it Jay. You can't have instant pudding, something for nothing. But for those wiling to invest the time, the returns are big. When people ask me how much time, I tell them to be willing to invest 2 hours a day for 6 months. They gasp. Sure you can get by with less, and you will once you learn how to be efficient. Keep up the good work.

    I loved this post! Social Media is a significant time investment – in all aspects of the term significant. In these times where Attention Deficit Disorder seems to be rising at alarming levels – here's a platform that forces focussed attention for meaningful, win/win outcomes. I agree with Tyson – I suspect this post will get retweeted quite often. Well done!

    I find myself simply shifting the way I communicate to social media channels — rather than communicating through email, I have several people (even clients) that we have found a perfectly comfortable conversation medium through Twitter. You simply HAVE TO communicate with your customers the way that they want to be communicated with — it's their dime.

    Case in point, this tax season I have decided that my bookkeeper and I simply cannot do business next year — she just doesn't understand that a phone call is not how I want to handle 99% of my communications — it is not efficient for me. I am the customer — I want these communications to come through email. As a business owner, you best communicate through the medium your customer finds most comfortable.

    In other words, I think businesses need to find the time — but I do hope this doesn't turn out to add 10 more hours to the average work week in America. :)

    The benefits are big with SM but it takes time and effort, luckily there are tools and websites then can help you be more efficient but in the end it still is work.

    Really good points Jay. I like what you said in the very beginning that Social media isn’t inexpensive, it’s different expensive. Saw someone tweet that yesterday during your presentation at Social Fresh.

    No matter what it is we want to accomplish, some sort of time is going to have to be put into it, whether it's us ourselves or someone else. I think part of it is that people and companies don't completely recognize the full value and potential and if they do, they aren't sure enough on what they need to do or how to go about it so that's why they're sitting on the sidelines.

    Hi Jay, great post! I'm relatively new to this social media world (yes, late) – I'm familiar with it, dabble a bit personally, but am completely overwhelmed as to where and how to start and daunted by the time investment I know it will realistically take to be involved both as a professional myself and as a representative of my company. Any suggestions? I have so many questions!

    I needed to read this right now. As a “sole” proprietor, I have a hard time wearing every hat well—the social media and marketing, the accounting (ugh), the actual speaking and consulting… But I do address each of those demands every day. On days with big deadlines, I have to acknowledge that the needs my in-the-flesh clients may have to trump my friends-in-avatar-only for a day. But just for a day. I can't wait for the day that I can call in reinforcements to help, but for now, a sense of balanced reality allows me to dip into all the communication channels available without getting sucked under by any one of them.

    I remain amazed at the throngs of businesses who still think social media is free – your post brings it all down to earth, Jay. I will be sharing links to this post with MANY business contacts.

    Interesting to see major corps struggling to break free of the paradigm that every outbound communication needs to be vetted by an army of managers and lawyers. I have a multi-national client who's communications dept is so tied up with process they don't have TIME to communicate!

    Great ideas on social media time management. Thanks for sharing, Jay.

    Great post and AMEN, Jay! There seems to be a somewhat prevalent issue with the perception of social media marketing as “set it and forget it”. I know a lot of folks think they don't have the time to do it, and they want something easy and non-time consuming. There needs to be a major wake-up call here to say that it's NOT “set it and forget it” – if you want to do it right and reap actual results and rewards from your efforts, you have to spend the time.

    I agree, very very very time consuming. Also, keeping up with all of the changes each medium presents constantly is exhausting as well. It's becoming a very arduous task to be the admin for my companies social media presence as well as my other job duties as webmaster. Pretty tired of it to tell you the truth :-

    Very well put. It is amazing how often I must remind clients that nothing is free. It may not cost you in terms of writing a check to Twitter, but you pay the community manager or whomever, and there is opportunity cost in the time they spend on social media actions.

    Great post. It seems to me like social media is similar to SEO in that way (particularly in the early days).

    It could be that the absence of a fixed start-up costs adversely impacts a marketer's perception of a marketing channel's value. If a 30-sec slot on a TV channel costs a million dollars, there may be little hesitancy about spending another $50K on creating a commercial – after all, the extra cost is a mere fraction of the broader investment. On the other hand, companies may be considerably more skeptical about spending $10K to optimize a Twitter account – the negligible barrier to initial entry distorted the perception of the channel as an investment, making incremental costs harder to stomach.

    I love it!! I remember chat rooms but the ironic thing is I am more comfortable on Twitter than I ever was in a chat room. Go figure!

    I just wonder how many people realize the time which is needed and the trial and error which we should have to measure an ongoing for lack of better campaign

    And usually that flashy toy required about 700 hours to put together, launch, market, and manage. That's what bugs me about YouTube. People think you can just upload something, and it'll get 500,000 views. It's not viral unless it is.

  • http://www.convinceandconvert.com jaybaer

    Kari I think the challenge is that a lot of folks are using a “build” mentality rather than a “manage” mentality. Twitter and Facebook contribute to this, because people believe account creation is somehow a success factor.

  • http://www.convinceandconvert.com jaybaer

    The trouble is, devoting that time (or carving it out as I suggest in the post) requires a bit of a leap of faith. You're asking companies to stop doing something else so that they can do social media, but without a clear idea of whether or how it will move the needle. I see that as the biggest obstacle.

    Great post Jay! You hit the nail on the head. Sometimes companies need to realize we can't do it all on our own.

    This is a really intriguing piece Jay for a whole slew of reasons. There is certainly a lot of debate today within organizations on how they should tackle social media participation for their particular industry.

    I am sure a lot of folks read Todd Defren’s rundown on the seemingly sticky situation of “being the team/voice” for clients over at PR-Squared http://www.pr-squared.com/index.php/2010/04/when-the-coach-takes-the-field-social-media-ethical-dilemmas

    It is in interesting read which talks about what Shift Communications did to participate as for lack of a better word a proxy on behalf of client. They set up rules and protocols ahead of time which they made the client understand were deal breakers. In the end Todd points out they found a niche there and the space is indeed not ruled by maximum transparency.

    I think this is a crucial point because no one is going to argue (at least seriously I hope) that social media is easy or can be automated in any fashion. But I think to your point that either invest more time and resources or stay on the sidelines, there is a valid alternative solution for planned, collaborative and still client controlled/voiced partners.

    Rather than outsourcing your social media, lets call it in-sourcing. That is how the marketing firm I work at has rebuilt our value prop and model for existing and new clients. To work collaboratively with organizations that need help getting social media ready and organized, but instead of in a silo at the core of their marketing approach. Through a lot of internal soul searching, client interaction and general observation of the industry, we landed in the same place that Todd discussed in his blog post. An approach built on open collaborative communication, designed to maximize the efficiency of the clients time, our agency resources and ultimately provide greater value across all marketing channels.

    This is such an important discussion, because there are no shortage of organizations that need help and an appropriate approach.

    Great post! People often forget that although social media is “free” – it requires a time investment. Time is money, and businesses should plan accordingly, know their goals and staff their teams to make it a success.

    Email Marketing is defined as a form of direct marketing using electronic mail to enhance a merchant's relationship with customers thru brand loyalty and incentive programs. Email marketing's end goal is to promote repeat business or engagement
    from the merchant's customer base.

    It takes time because it is about building a bond between you and your consumers. I think the biggest misconception about Social Media is it will bring you instant internet fame, ROI, etc. It's not a magic pill. It's also an ongoing process. It's a very powerful tool, if used properly, it could improve your business in many many ways. You're right same rules in marketing apply here because it's still marketing–a very different medium of marketing (a more personalized marketing) But still, you have to create new content, work hard to retain attention, and if you cannot do it alone, delegate tasks.
    PS…here's one example of how powerful social media is http://sn.im/uxp1n

I kept having to explain that the bottom line is, social media is an investment that requires time, energy and effort–whether or not you have the time, energy and effort to give is simply out of the question if you want your message to be heard.

    I just found a great company that builds websites for info products. To keep your costs low, they’ll mentor you on how to create your site, design a marketing funnel (one of the guys works in Hollywood and makes really slick videos), and the other guy programmed Myspace. If you’re looking to have professional web design for your small business and not waste any time or money then check their site out.
