  1. Post your text and images to your various accounts
  2. Respond to messages and comments from followers/connections
  3. Monitor and respond to mentions
  4. Find and engage with people you want to connect with
  5. Do something targeted for one or more of your most engaged connections, like a mention or a direct message

Of course, there are other tasks that don't need daily attention but do need to be on your list. Here are the top 8 things not to ignore:


  • Update your editorial calendar
  • Review all available analytics


  • Check for any changes to the options or rules for the social channel(s) you use
  • Spend some time looking at what your competitors are doing that's working and not working


  • Check your profile(s) for accuracy and completeness
  • Participate in a meeting, webinar, or some other activity that shares best practices and helps keep you abreast of developments and opportunities


  • Review and update your social media strategy and plan
  • Assess any recently emerging tools for suitability for your social media goals
