As important as promoting is to our business, limiting our time on these activities is important to our creative spirit.
Try Limiting your twitter activity to 10 - 15 minutes a day. Same with Facebook. Giving yourself time limits, even using a timer will make it easier to control how much time you are spending online.
Here are a few ideas to keep in mind when planning out your scheduled marketing plan:
• Carry postcards, flyers, and business cards and pass them out wherever you go
• Schedule your blog posts so you can post at least 2 - 3 times a week
• Add new images to Flickr and Facebook
• Engage fans on facebook
• Tweet about a twitter friend daily
When you are creating your list of daily activities give each task a time limit. Time limits will help you stay on track, giving you more time in your day to do what you enjoy most create. Stick to your plan and within 3 weeks it will be a routine.
