Creating Your Social Media System

I'm no social media expert. In fact, I'm pretty much a beginner. However, since diving in to a few things, I'm amazed at the potential and opportunity available through social media channels. The first thing people say when I tell them about some of these things is "I don't have time to do that" or "I hardly have time to check email."

For business- especially small businesses and start-ups, you really need to jump in and just do it. You are missing out on potential clients, feedback, advertisers, etc... It really will be worth the time you put into it.

I came across an article today about Creating a Social Media System for yourself. It has some great tips and breaks tasks up into daily, weekly, monthly. I like this idea. It takes some of the addiction or random "brain-surfing" as I heard it called, out of it and puts it into a plan of action.

I've scheduled time into my day to answer emails, twitter, read blogs, and update profiles. I need to do better at sticking to the schedule I've created. Do you have a plan for yourself? What's your system?
