@jasonwiser Social media is a large part of my association’s communication plan so I probably spend 2-3 hours per week day. I also try to blend in my personal “business” time when I can. That is why social tools, such as Buffer, Tweetdeck and Hootsuite, are so important. They help you monitor the content stream so that you don’t have to sit in front of each platform to wait for interactions. They also provide statistics to help you track results.
When I was consulting/job seeking, I spent a few hours each week at in-person networking functions. It’s always nice to meet someone in person and shake their hand, hear their voice. I also volunteered when I could – another great way to meet people and build credibility.
