“Get on Facebook.” “Find your fans on Twitter.” “Do a livestream on Instagram Stories”
You need to get out onto the Internet to connect with your potential customers. But when starting a home business online there are so many systems to have in place and time spent that you need to be strategic with your time. There are only 24 hours in a day and you need to sleep for some of that time.
Social media marketing is the #1 time waster when you are starting a home business. It is easy to spend hours checking out cat pictures or entering discussions on what is your favourite 1980’s song.
Your #1 priority when starting your home business is “What get’s you closer to your money.”
What can you do in the next half hour that attracts a potential customer to your product or service or creates the newest sales page?
The more focused you are on getting the sale every minute of the day, the less likely you will go down that time wasting vortex that is social media.
