Do you feel like you never have enough time in a day? You aren’t alone. I feel that way all the time. It always seems like your day gets swallowed up will hundreds of little distractions, and your to-do list sits on the desk, untouched. Social Media marketing can be especially time-consuming.

Small tasks that should take a short amount of time to complete add up quickly and you can become easily distracted by news feeds and status updates. But I have good news! There are a few simple ways that you can increase your productivity and minimize your time spent on social media marketing.Here are my top 5 suggestions to save time with your social media marketing:

Use a scheduling tool for your Social Media posts: Tools such as Hootsuite and Buffer are fantastic because they allow you to schedule multiple posts to go out at a later time or date. This will free up the rest of your day to focus on other tasks.

Use a content-curation tool: A tool like Content Gems or Digg can help you find quality content to share. Searching for content on the web can take a lot of time. There is so much information to sift through. Let the information come to you!
Create Twitter followers lists: Digging through your twitter feed can be daunting at times. If you are searching for specific topics or information, it is helpful to have the people you follow organized into lists.
Reuse quality content: It takes time to produce quality content, so there is no reason you can only use it once. When re-sharing content, just be sure it is still relevant and accurate. You can also switch up your wording when posting on social media. Small tweaks can make a big difference.
