How to put social media on remote control

November 27, 2012 by  
Filed under Featured Articles

Many people want to get involved in social media and are concerned that it will take up all of their time. I have a simple solution that allows you to appear online and engaged and yet, really only use a few hours a week to do this. Especially if you only have one brand you are pushing.

Right now I am in production for the television show “The Wright Place TV Show”, Solve It Sisters – web series, Wright Place radio and A Crowd Funded Life radio show.

My three brands, Wright Place TV, Solve it Sisters and A Crowd Funded Life all have their own social media foot print. Then there is my personal footprint.  Because of the brands I am handling, I spend a little more time that what I talk about in this article but not much more. You simply can’t be online all day and get any revenue generating work done

The accounts you need

My friend Dr. Rachna Jain keeps me up to date what what’s what.  I used to say you only need 3 social media, I have since then updated my numbers.

I highly recommend you have these accounts (they only take minutes to open)

Opening these accounts takes 30 minutes

This is a task that can be delegated

  • Twitter (my personal favorite)
  • Facebook (everyone lives here)
  • Linked in
  • Pininterest
  • Google Plus
  • Rebel Mouse
  • Foursquare

Rebel mouse will automatically add your activity to it, there is no need to post there once it’s set up. I send people to and they can see everything I am doing on each show. They can follow and subscribe.

Sign up for a account

Add all your social media to it (at the time of this writing, Rebel Mouse is not an option)

Use Hootsuite to pre plan your social media posts. It posts to all accounts if you want.  That’s why even on 5-hour flight to the east coast; I can have a post going out without bothering to get online. Spend 30 minutes a week and you are done.

Celebrity Apprentice: Patricia Velasquez

I didn’t post anything last week because frankly the show was boring. Tia and Lou were the team captains and I knew Tia was going to lose. Penn got under Clay Aiken’s skin by doing very little to make it happen. I am not sure if Clay is high strung or not. Penn didn’t even flex hard and Clay was all pissy.

This week the challenge was a launch party for Crystal lite. Lisa expressed her goal of getting rid of the Latin Ladies. The women picked Aubry as the project manager and she sucked up to the Crystal Lite people during her manager acceptance speech. The guys picked Clay. Then in the car they found out no one was a real party person and had trouble with a theme. I don’t get it,  a party is a lot like a show and all those guys are in show business. So, what is the problem guys? Penn was completely silent and Chopper dude was looking out the window like a homesick summer camper.

The Gingers seem to understand the core of the task and lead their teams to get to work. Penn decides to contribute less as a defense mechanism. Patricia does not bow down to Lisa so Lisa takes it to Aubrey to be her back up. Teresa gets to work because she is the ultimate party planner. They show a shot of her measuring for furniture with gusto. The guys clearly feel at a disadvantage. The difference between the groups now is the women have open hostility towards each other and the men have theirs under wraps. Both are huge scary monsters just waiting to pounce. I feel the same anxiety as when playing with  a Jack in the Box, waiting for it to pop. It is exquisite!

Ivanka visits the men and Penn is at the store with Arsenio. They suck up to her and then throw Penn under the buss. Donald Jr. visits the women and Aubrey admits a major crush on him. I take it to mean, she’d do him in a second if he opened the door just an inch. She bats her eyelids and talks about all they are doing and Donald is completely bored by their idea. Teresa points out that they may be off track from their focus about health. Crystal lite is about fun, not healthy. Donald says they are missing the fun. The men were calling everyone to invite them to the party, while the women at the same point did not invite anyone yet. And seriously, I have not seen Miss World since the tasks were assigned. 

Come back from commercial, there she is! Taking pictures of plants with Debbie Gibson. Gibson also wrote an original song however,I am thinking by saying Crystal DELIGHT, and not lite, that might work against her. She goes into the studio to produce it and get copies to give out. The guys bring in music as entertainment for the party. The pressure is on the Gingers but so far neither has cracked. Turn the crank on the Jack in the Box, one more time.

It turns out that both parties looked fun. Arsenio kept pointing to the heavier set guests and guessing correctly that they were Clay-mates. Miss World invited more  queens in order to get more good looking people there. I did not say it, she did, on camera. Execs were impressed by Aubrey. Maybe they thought there was nothing going on under all that red hair. But they felt the guys did not have enough signage.

The women lost and Aubrey cried. Mr Trump must be one of those men that are affected by tears because he still gave her $10k of his personal money. Aubrey said she should stay because she is so valuable. Finally Miss World said the truth, Lisa and Aubrey lead the ideas and yet they have only won 2 out of 6. The men had figured that out long ago.

Aubrey brings all of Venezuela back into the board room. Patricia got fired. And that was that.
