Warwick, RI — Ask any business owner how important social media is, and they’ll very likely answer that it’s critical for their company — if only they could find the time to do it.

So what’s the best way to get the word out on social media if you’re the only one doing it? Erin Carson, staff writer for, offers seven tips for managing social media as a “team of one.”

First, Carson writes, it’s important to be organized. Tweets can often be composed days or weeks in advance, since there’s typically an approval process to navigate.

Warwick Post seeks sponsors for its Social Media Tips & Tricks feature. Contact Publisher Joe Hutnak via email at [email protected] to discuss how your company can sponsor this content.

Also, social media marketers need to know their brand and company “inside and out,” Carson explains, especially when trying new efforts and deciding whether a certain social media push is the right idea.

Other ideas that Carson offers include not spreading yourself too thin, so mistakes like that notorious US Airways tweet don’t happen; building support within the company so other staffers are Liking and retweeting your posts; seeking inspiration from unlikely sources; getting other employees in on the content creation; and investing in new tech to speed up the information flow.
