Building your brand on Social Media in just 12 minutes each day takes a consistent message, good listening skills and knowing how to best utilize your time. It is also important to realize that you don't have to be on EVERY single social media outlet to build a strong brand and following. First, take 4 minutes on Twitter to review your messages, retweet interesting content, post your own content and extend your thank yous. Having a consistent brand message is critical to your success. I like to use a list of twitter friends who post content that supports my message to pull from quickly and easily. and on Pintrest at Both @DaviesWriter *Her hobby is lint!

There are differing opinions on whether or not to use a hashtag on social media. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1) Using hashtags allows people to find the information they are searching for. For example, if I am looking for some editing tips from a fellow writer on twitter then I simple type in #editing and poof-I have tips from a variety of different sources. 2) Using hashtags allows others to know what your social platform is. For example, if I use #amwriting people know that I write. You get the idea! 3) Using hashtags lets people know what your link is. Is it a photo, a website... a blog? For example, if you have a blog that you are trying to promote, adding #blog lets people know what that particular link is.
