Everyone might be on social media, but everyone is not loving it. Sooner or later every Tom, Dick, and Harry will hit the point where they are bizarre and tired of putting time and energy into social media.

Social media has come to the heart of the matter where a few individuals incline toward Facebook over sex, people do status updates from their bathrooms, or even intimidate politicians, celebrities on Twitter – which is an extremely open electronic medium.

According to a survey conducted by Marist College in New York; one in five Americans regret at least one tweet, comment or text they send each month, Half of Internet users in America — 50% — think social media does more harm than good.

Social media addiction might be innate, but excess time spent on social media can intensify or stimulate symptoms of depression. Therefore, it’s no wonder people are taking breaks from social media. In case you want to keep you children away from social media, there are certain tools like WebSafety available to monitor social media activity on your smartphones, iPad, laptop or home computer.

Clearly the addiction is growing, and the numbers of people who are tired of social media are also increasing. There are some habits to adopt to keep social media addiction in check, and reduce your social media overwhelm. I hope you’ll find them useful.

1. Choose The Best Social Network

Selecting which social media platforms to utilize can be intimidating. Now -a-days it’s easy to get overwhelmed with abundant of social media platforms choices you have. Try not to stretch yourself, you don’t need to be on every one of them yet you ought to be on those that work best for you. Test them out for 3 – 6 months and reconsider which one is making you feel overpowered.

Start paying more attention to the platforms that you enjoy being on.  There isn’t any online competition to see who’s on the most social media networks. In reality, taking a slower more disciplined approach could really benefit you in the long run.

Remember the saying Jack of all trades, master of none? By using several social networks at once, you might make mistakes.

2. Define Your Social Media Strategy

Commonly people feel overwhelmed in light of the fact that they’re not certain why they are utilizing social media and don’t comprehend the success indicators for social media.

What are you planning to accomplish from consuming social media? To bring an issue to light? Make deals? Or increase sales or brand profile and make a group around it? What’s an ideal approach to take?

Recognizing what you’d like to accomplish and how you need to do it, will assist you with determining the right track.

For instance, in case you’re using social media to raise brand awareness, a pointer of achievement could be more individuals inquiring about your brand, more people alluding your brand to friends, more website traffic originating from social media pages.

3. Find Easily Linked Platforms

Find social media platforms that can be linked or integrate well with each other. It will allow auto-posting feature across platforms easily.

For instance, Facebook and Instagram can be easily linked while getting Twitter and Instagram linked is not as seamless; since Facebook purchased Instagram.  Same is the case with YouTube and Google+ because they are both owned by Google. This approach is useful if you have just started using social media and your content posting strategy is not yet varied across the platform. However, if you are more social media savvy, I recommend posting updates in customized formats which are suitable for the platform, instead of auto-posting the same content along with the same format across all platforms.

This is only a thought on the off chance that you are simply starting and you’re posting procedure is not yet changed over the stage. On the other hand, once you start to get more online networking adroit, I prescribe posting redesigns in configurations suitable for the stage rather than auto-posting the same message or arrangement over all stages.

4. Plan and Schedule Time Spent On Social Media

To build a successful social media presence you don’t have to dedicate hours a day. Having a plan and schedule in place can help you to deal with your time so you’re not continually in preparing mode, which can make you feel overwhelmed. Concentrate on making an allotted slot and engaging 2 – 3 times a day to provide useful updates, answer inquiries, post inquiries, share photographs and posts and be a human. Have every one of them prepared to go, so you can plan them out utilizing scheduling tools. Use plugins for blogs to post directly to Facebook, Twitter and Google plus and schedule it in advance.

5. Know Where Most of Your Time Is Best Spent

To wrap things up, check and utilize Google Analytics to see the top social media referred visitors to your site. Examine which social media platform drives the most traffic.

Observe which platform gives you the most return on investment (ROI). This will offer you some assistance with understanding where best to invest your energy to avoid overwhelm and desire that you should be on every one of them. In the event that you are overseeing online networking for your organization or another person, this can likewise help you justify to your client, boss or supervisor on why you’ve decided to spend more time on a particular social media platform.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
