Conversational Marketing in the Age of Social Media
If you’ve spent this year getting on board with social media, you may be wondering how to prepare for vacation. Let’s say you’ve embraced the whole enchilada (twitter, blog, facebook, linkedin, google alerts, etc.) then there’s a lot of activity going across your monitor every day. So the question may be, how do you walk away and take an “off the grid” vacation?
Keep a List of Passwords & Usernames
Along with multiple social media/networking accounts comes a list of login pages, usernames and passwords. So to keep your mind at ease, bookmark the pages and keep a list in a shared file where others can access the passwords and usernames, if they plan to post during your absence.
Publish Posts for Future Dates
If you’ve been tweeting on a regular basis, you don’t have to stop cold turkey. Write and prepare any number of tweets you’d like, and set up a page on tweetlater, where you can post messages for future dates. You can do the same for your blog posts, and voilà, it’ll look like you’re working morning, noon and night.
Change Setting Google Alerts Settings
Monitoring a number of topics across the web isn’t only time consuming, it can fill-up your email pretty quickly. Google alerts provides the option of three different settings —as it happens, once a day, or once a week. It’s easy to change the setting so you don’t come back to an overflowing inbox.
