5 Tips to Manage Multiple Social Media Accounts

Keeping up with different trends, social media algorithms, which platforms work best, etc. can be exhausting. The key to keeping your sanity is an organized and streamlined workflow. Yeah we know, that is easier said than done. So let’s give you some clear takeaways. Here are 5 tips for managing multiple social media accounts: 

Create a Social Media Strategy

It is important to understand what you want to get out of your social media presence. This is where a strategy comes into play. Inside every wonderful social media strategy you should:

  • Define your Goals- ask yourself; are you looking to build brand awareness, drive traffic to your website, or generate leads? Defining this at the beginning helps all of your other tasks stay on track and reflect your ultimate goal or your “why.”
  • Choose the Right Social Media Platforms– The best way to select the right platform (or platforms) for your needs is to consider what platforms your ideal clients or audience is on. 
  • Create Engaging Content– what interests one group of people may not be of interest to another. The key is to research what your client’s pain points are, and what solutions they are searching for. 
  • Use Hashtags and Keywords– use relevant and trending hashtags and keywords. Metricool offers both Instagram and TikTok hashtag generators. These tools are external to the social network to provide you with the most popular tags that you can use for your content. For keywords, there are many helpful tools including Google Keyword Planner, Celver Ads Keyword Planner, Exploding Topics, and SEMrush.

Doing the hard work up front and prior to beginning your social media journey will help save you time in the long run!

Create a Social Media Content Calendar

A content calendar can help you set your goals for each social network and blog that align with your target audience.
