This is a great 15 minute task to do. whether you going to a Facebook group where your ideal client hangs out or look at the suggested friends on Facebook and see if they are relevant. You should always be looking to connect with more people.
Check out google analytics
You should be checking your Google analytics regularly anyway however using just 15 minutes to pop in and evaluate what’s working in your business is a great use of time. checkout what social media platforms are driving traffic to your website (go to Acquisitions – All Traffic – Referrals)
Look at your social media insights
All social media platforms have insights so when do you have 15 minutes spare take the chance to look at what posts are working really well for you. Is a particular piece of content doing really well for you? you can then either create more of the same or think about tweaking and re-purposing post that worked really well coming at it from a different angle.
Check your numbers
This is an ideal task to do at the end of each month. Look at how many new followers/likes you’ve got and set yourself goals for the following month.
Send a message
When you’ve got just a few minutes to spare why not reach out to a new contact, maybe someone on social media or a networking connection.
