The Case for Outsourcing Your Social Media

With services like Hootsuite, Edgar, Buffer, Tweetdeck and more available these days, it’s all too easy to think that all you need in your virtual business is to schedule a bunch of social media updates and move on to the next task. However, what you actually need is a live person doing your social media for you! Here’s why:

Social media is not a set it and forget it system. True engagement comes from interacting with your audience. When you simply set up a bunch of updates and don’t come back to it until the next time you want to schedule in bulk your audience is going to quickly forget about what you posted last time. Or worse, they might consider your pages stagnant and stop commenting and liking altogether.

The best company social media profiles are actively posting, liking and commenting back. When someone comments on a post they write, the company “likes” their comment and/or comments back within a reasonable amount of time- think within the same day, not the following week. Customers and potential customers like this kind of interaction. It makes them feel like you genuinely care about their thoughts regarding your business.

  1. I definitely agree it’s better to engage with fans than to spray them with content and simply pray they comment and share. Outsourcing my social media is totally on my list of business goals. Brilliant post! 😀

  2. This is all too true. Social media has become as important as referral networking but the key to any of it is you have to be present to win. Too often comments are left days without response. These days people expect replies in minutes.

    This is so right. There is no point of overwhelming your page and the audience with so much information when you don’t even respond to messages or comments. Thank you for the great advice!


  4. Definitely need to outsource AND engage. To have someone who can handle it for you is incredibly beneficial. Love outsourcing because it’s all about working smarter NOT harder 🙂
