We all know that there is a lot of great training out there for social media marketing. The problem is that its not completely realistic for the working woman or mom. So throw out what the "gurus" say and let's talk about a REAL plan tailored for the crazy life of a woman and mom who has a full time career.
I was not always a full time work at home mom. 8 of those years were spent building my businesses part time while I was working a full time job in corporate America as a legal assistant. I had a limited amount of time and needed to spend it wisely. A plan that worked. If you can relate and struggling to fit it all in then this marketing plan is for you! Tweak it to fit your schedule and social media platforms that you find the most results from in your business. I build most of my business on Facebook so you will see me reference Facebook as a primary social media source. If that does not work for you, tweak it to fit the platforms that you are the most active on.
Before we dive into the actual plan its CRUCIAL that you identify the 4-5 REVENUE GENERATING activities that produce results in your business. The foundation of every business comes down to networking and making new contacts. Expanding your network should be at the top of that list. Busy work will not grow your business. You have to have a crystal clear understanding of the EXACT activities that will produce income. Time is money, ensure that the time you spend you are spending wisely on activities that will produce income.

Use tools to keep yourself organized. Your expenses, your follow-ups, appointments. Keeping it all in one place ensures you aren't wasting time trying to track down paper.

If that fits your personality and style here are a few of my favorite resources. Find what works for you, consistency and organization is key to running a happy healthy home, life and business.
