I have listed below the activities which I have spent time on, with the activity with the most time spent listed first.
a) Writing. The majority of the time is spent writing my blog posts. I take around 2 hours to write a post which i think is quite long. I also write articles for article directory, set up squidoo and hubpages. Did 1 press release as well.
b) Social marketing. A lot of my traffic comes from facebook. Even though I rank in 1st page of google for my keywords, facebook brings me more traffic than google. The problem is that when I am on facebook, i get distracted easily so when I have done my social marketing, I am still on the site doing non productive things
c) SEO activities such as social bookmarking and building links.
One way to move forward is through automation or maybe outsourcing so that the amount of time I need to spend on my online marketing is reduced. I would like to post the following questions:
a) How do i automate the above three activities? Are there any automation tools or automation software that will make writing posts and articles easier, make submissions of press release and articles easier, assist in social marketing. If possible, I would like to have an integrated solution which can fix the majority of the above limitations or problems.
b) Can anyone share their system of outsourcing the above activities. I have used fiverr but its more on a ad-hoc basis.
c) I think that I have done the basic. Any suggestions that will help me to move to the next level is also appreciated.
I hope that the response given to this posting will help other warriors who are facing similar problems.
