I'm curious to know how much time is spent on finding content to regularly post on social media? It's important but a tedious process...

    It mainly depends on how fast you can come up with content. However, if you got the money, then you can hire someone who can give you good quality content.

    It depends on how fast you create the content. You also can hire someone to write for you.

    The difficulty of finding relevant content depends on the kind of business you have. If you're in the food industry, this is easy. If you are in a niche industry this might take longer. On average, virtual assistants hired as social media managers will usually spend around an hour finding and writing relevant content for 15 posts.

    Depends. Are you doing it manually or it is automated? Automation will save you time. There are quite a number of tools you can use to curate content. See this article for a few good ones

    When it comes to creating, it depends on the social media channel. With Twitter and Instagram, you may not need as much time as Facebook or Google+ due to the nature of the posts.

    When it comes to finding and sharing, I don't spend a ton of time here. I look for a few good, relevant articles and add them to my scheduling app. I try to do about a 50/50 ratio between my own posts and posts from others.

    Hope this helps!

    if you are finding/looking for a content then it would certainly not take too much time as creating one.

    Finding content is easy once you get the hang of it, meanwhile copyrighting it for use or infringement rights issues is another thing.
