After that, you can draft the post to fit the social network and your audience. The last thing is to schedule the post for the day and time that works best. All of these may need 5 hours per week of your time.
Engagement & Campaign Tracking (Est. 2.5 Hours)

This is also a golden opportunity for your company to increase its quality in the eyes of the audience. However, statistic shows only 20% of social media comments receive a response from the company.
