Many business owners reach a point where they’re tired of the social media hamster wheel.
They desire a streamlined process that can be easily handed over to someone else, but often, they lack the necessary structure, leading to headaches and unrealistic expectations.
If you’re serious about effectively delegating your social media efforts, there are 4 crucial steps you need to take and document.
1. Which Social Media channels are you active on?
Determine which social media platforms your business is currently active on. To take it a step further, identify which platforms you’re prioritizing for growth.
2. Post Scheduling
Assess your posting habits. Are you scheduling your posts in advance, or do you post on a whim? If you’re scheduling, that’s a great start. If not, consider what time frames you seem to consistently post around.
3. Understanding Analytics
Read your social media analytics (or find someone who can help you!). Who is your target audience, and who is genuinely engaging with your content? This insight is invaluable when handing over your social media responsibilities.
4. Content and Graphics:
Make note of your content creation process. Are you providing all the content, graphics, and necessary hashtags? How much work are you prepared to delegate to the other person or are you willing to split the needs between different individuals?
The Importance of Process Development and Documentation
Process Development and Documentation serve a dual purpose—it helps that you don’t forget vital details, and it creates a framework for either your team to take over or for the eventual transfer of your business to someone else.
