Social media management is so much more than posting content and video. It’s about following up with your hard work and growing your audience. Making a checklist for your social media activities will keep you in the groove and feel more accomplished once complete.
I’ve put together some task ideas from research I’ve done with other marketers, and also what I’ve done myself. Feel free to comment with anything I may have missed, or to add a task you like.
