Social Profile Tips
Make sure you have completed your profile on each platform you will use for your business before implementing the Daily 5 Plan!

  • Use a professional photo (head shot)
  • Use the bio area to
  • Create a Word Doc with all the common profile content (use your completed LinkedIn profile)
  • Use branded cover images across all social platforms


The Daily 5 (30-30)
Schedule 30 minutes in the morning and another 30 minutes in the afternoon/evening and stay focused on the 5 strategies outlined below.  The Daily 5 works best for Facebook and LinkedIn, however can be slightly adapted for all the primary social media platforms.  Stay on task and resist the urge to go down the “Internet Rabbit Hole!”  Which, of course, means getting distracted from your task at hand as you click and click and click your way
