How much time do you spend on social media promoting yourself professionally or your company?

A blog by Andrea Davis on our sister publication’s website IBJ.com made me look at how much time I spend on social media promoting Indiana Lawyer. Preliminary survey results by Carmel-based company Roundpeg say that more than 30 percent of small business devote an hour or more to social media every day.

You can read more at Andrea’s blog.

As Indiana Lawyer’s social media operator, I don’t, on average, spend an hour every day promoting the paper on Facebook or Twitter. There are some days when I don’t even have a chance to launch our Twitter feed and see what’s of interest to those we follow. I do check our Twitter feed more often than Facebook, though. I think more people pay attention to Twitter and LinkedIn than Facebook these days, unless you’re looking for your friend’s vacation photos.

Do you use social media to market yourself to potential clients or to promote your firm or company? Are you on social media (for professional reasons) more than an hour a day? On average, how much time do you spend on social media every day?

And perhaps the most important question, do you find social media has helped you land new business?

    Hello Jennifer, I try to spend about half an hour 4 days per week. Sometimes it ends up being more because I find some really good content to read and pass along. SM has helped strengthen relationships formed in "real life". It has definitely helped with my business.

  1. My daughters' kids was removed from the home in March 2015, she has been in total compliance with the requirements of cps, she is going to court on the 4th of August. Cps had called the first team meeting last Monday to inform her that she was not in compliance, by not attending home based therapy, which is done normally with the children in the home, and now they are recommending her to have a psych evaluation, and they are also recommending that the children not be returned to the home. This is all bull hockey. In this so called team meeting which I did attend for the best interest of my child and grandbabies, I learned that no matter how much she does that cps is not trying to return the children and the concerns my daughter has is not important to cps, they only told her that she is to do as they say and not to resist or her rights will be terminated. I cant not believe the way Cps treats people knowing if they threaten you with loosing your kids you will do anything to get them back. My daughter is drug free she has never put her hands on any of her children she does not scream at her babies at all, but she is only allowed to see her kids 6 hours a week and someone has to supervise. Lets all tske a stand against the child protection services. THEY CAN NO LONGER TAKE CHILDREN FROM THERE PARENTS.

  2. Planned Parenthood has the government so trained . . .

  3. In a related story, an undercover video team released this footage of the government's search of the Planned Parenthood facilities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXVN7QJ8m88

  4. Here is an excellent movie for those wanting some historical context, as well as encouragement to stand against dominant political forces and knaves who carry the staves of governance to enforce said dominance: http://www.copperheadthemovie.com/

  5. Not enough copperheads here to care anymore, is my guess. Otherwise, a totally pointless gesture. ... Oh wait: was this done because somebody want to avoid bad press - or was it that some weak kneed officials cravenly fear "protest" violence by "urban youths.."
