How to grow your social media 30 minutes a day

As an online entrepreneur, I pay attention to my social media platforms more than your average person. I like to have an account on the most popular social media platforms, and I am quite active on a couple. Social media is my bread and butter, so growing my following is important to me. Having said, I am not able to dedicate as many hours in a day to build my social media following as I would like. So I had to think outside the box. I am quite impressed with how I have grown my social media platforms but there is still room to grow, and I plan to increase my following significantly before the end of this year.

How to grow your social media 30 minutes a day

So how do I grow my social media 30 minutes a day? Here are some things I do, you may find them helpful too!


Scheduling Tweets

I schedule my tweets on Buffer everyday. It usually takes me about 10 minutes to get this done. I always have my tweets ready in my head so I don’t  over think the process too much. Also, I am always manually tweeting when I get the time so my whole feed is automated. But being to schedule my tweets does help me grow my following massively. Using the right hashtags and images also help my tweets get some engagement. Plus Twitter is all about chitchat so I make sure I engaged with others everyday.


Facebook Promotion

I spend a few minutes a day on Facebook creating stories, replying comments and resharing relevant posts from other pages and creating ads. It takes me about 10 minutes to get all these done on Facebook. I also go in and out of the Facebook app on my iPhone as often as I can in the day, but I make sure I dedicate 10 minutes a day to get my promotional stuff done. Facebook reach can be tricky to get up but sharing your new blog posts in relevant groups does help.



Now on Instagram, I spend a bit more time because I am seriously trying to go my following on it. I spend around 20 minutes a day creating stories, posting shots/captions, replying comments, liking and commenting on photos and researching hashtags. Instagram is such a competitive platform but I try to do me on there as much as possible. I make sure I don’t spend too much time on the platform though, as it is so easy to get carried away checking profiles out.

I have fallen in love with Pinterest and I now spend around 10minutes a day pinning. Pinterest is an interesting social media platform and I love the fact that I have noticed a spike in my monthly unique and engaged viewers. My following is also gradually increasing on there and I am loving it. Plus it is so easy to manage once you know what you are doing. I always go in and out throughout the day on my iPhone and I pin as much as I can outside of the 10 minutes I dedicate everyday.


You don’t have to spend hours working on your social media platforms. Just start with a couple of minutes every day on each platform and see how you get on. It is more about consistency than the amount of time you spend. You doing the same thing everyday for a week will mean more than you spending hours on a platform on 1 day and not do anything else on it for a week. Consistency leads to growth on social media, so don’t give up!

1) Analysis of Insurance Policies

Covering your property from unexpected risks is a necessity. There is a need to protect yourself and your family when a crisis occurs. Some insurances are mandated by law. For example, every car owner should have his or her car covered.

When signing up for your home, medical, auto, or health insurance, you should analyze the potential insurance provider’s policies. The policies clearly state how much you should pay and the scenarios in which they cover you. Statistics can help you find a firm that will provide full coverage in case you need to file a claim. You have to collect policies from a different firm and analyze each one of them until you find the best plan.

Your analysis will be based on the probability of your provider covering your claim. Knowing how to conduct this analysis will protect you from exploitation and chances of landing on uncovered claims. Studying statistics will give you tips on how to analyze different insurance policies. In case you need help with your statistics assignment or dissertation, you can visit this site.

2) Predicting Sports Strategies

Athletes and sports teams use statistics to come up with winning strategies. The probability of a win can be predicted by analyzing variables such as past scores and the player’s performance. The analysis of one player is compared to that of their opponents, which predicts the results. Coaches come up with strategies like lineups that improve their odds of winning. Knowing how to predict game scores can be a good way for teams to prepare for competitions. Statistics are also used by the gaming and gambling industries to come up with game odds. The gamers have a chance to win if they predict correct scores and place a stake. Through statistics, players can analyze data from previous games to calculate the probabilities of a particular team in winning.


3) Weather Forecasting

Since we cannot tell for sure when it is going to rain or when a storm will hit, we rely on the predictions made by meteorologists. Meteorologists use statistics in predicting the possibility of which weather pattern to expect. They analyze samples like water vapor and temperature and compare it to previous weather trends. Their prediction is not always 100% correct, but the possibility of the weather being as planned is high. Weather forecast helps in the planning of activities such as traveling and farming that depend on the right weather. Prediction of extreme weather conditions like storms has helped save many lives.
