How to Share Content on Social Media in 5 Minutes a Day

Dennis Shiao shares his advice on how to minimize your time posting on social media. According to him, the goal of this post is to show you how to get started with social media sharing in as little as five minutes a day. The post is geared towards individuals (rather than brands), although some tips certainly apply to brands.

If you can find five minutes in your day, I’ve got a system just for you. This is a system that’s proven to work (or your money back).

There are a few prerequisites to complete first:

  1. If you don’t have one already, create a Twitter account.
  2. Populate your Twitter profile. Here’s a useful guide on how to do just that.
  3. If you don’t have one already, create a LinkedIn account.
  4. Populate your LinkedIn profile. The LinkedIn blog provides some good tips on this.
  5. If you don’t have one already, create a SlideShare account.
  6. Populate your SlideShare profile. The SlideShare blog provides a good set of tips to get started.
  7. Connect your SlideShare and LinkedIn accounts. Here’s the page to make that happen.

If you already have accounts on Twitter, LinkedIn or SlideShare, I encourage you to check out these articles (above). Still spend the two hours here to complete and optimize your profiles. Believe me, your social sharing will be the better for it.
