0:10 Neil Patel here for another Q and A Thursday video. I’m here with Adam LaDolce from https://viewership.com/.

This one is from Xavier Alcarez, and the question is, “What is the best way to manage six to eight clients’ “social media platforms?”

2:00 There are tools like Hootsuite, which I’m guessing he mentioned in a comment. There’s also Buffer. There’s also MeetEdgar. I prefer MeetEdgar for a lot of stuff because it’ll automatically retweet, mention your stuff over time. Here’s the thing that most social media managers miss. You create content, and you share it out on the social web, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn. And that’s it.

4:30 Consider sharing your content over time. And MeetEdgar will do this all automatically for you, so that’s why I love that tool. Another thing that I would do is share your content manually on certain social sites. I found that on Facebook if you share content through Buffer and Hootsuite, the reach is way lower for that same piece of content than if you just manually shared it on Facebook and you schedule it out. Because on Facebook, and you can schedule out your posts.

They already have that feature built in. They want you to come to Facebook. That’s how they make ad revenue. They do not make ad revenue by you using Hootsuite to push a message out on Facebook.

5:00 If you want to manage a lot of clients. So you can use the tools, do Facebook manually. You also want to start creating standardized reporting. So, how’s your follower count? Is it growing each month? Is it decreasing? How many clicks did you get? Highlight any amazing comments, shares, any notable things that happened. You should do this for every single network. Once you create the standardized reporting, you can then plug and play for every single client.

5:30 You have to create your content calendars, scheduling, maybe you can streamline your image creation by using tools like Canva. There are so many tools out there to make social media marketing easy. You can use tools like Social Blade to get stats, VidIQ’s another one. There’s a lot of Instagram tools out there, like Social Upgrade. You can pick whatever ones you want. But what I found is, the easiest way to manage all the clients, and I know this is cheating and it won’t work for a lot of you guys, is to have your clients in the same industry.

6:00 In general, with social media marketing, you’re probably going to take home whatever clients you can get. But those are just general tips and tricks. I would also have weekly calls with your clients. You can move it to every other week, but the moment you start doing calls, like once a month, or once every two or three months, and there’s not regular check-is. Even if it’s not calls, like emails, they’re gonna be like, “Oh, you’re not doing anything. “Why should I keep paying you?” So even if you’re doing work, you still need to communicate and show the work you’re doing, not just in the monthly report, but on a regular basis.

We’d love to hear from you guys. Leave that comment below. Do you manage other people’s social media platforms? What’s worked for you guys? Leave that comment right there below.

  4. In Facebook I can create many pages from my personal account. Let’s say I have created 10 FB business pages. I want to create one Instagram for every Fb page. But every one of 10 Instagram pages requires a different phone number. It doesn’t make sense. Am I doing wrong ?

  14. Great tips. I can tell Neil is a straight shooter. No BS. Let's get it done!

  15. Yes, I use Hootsuite for my real estate business, and also my side businesses which are affiliate/blog sites. I just find it to be very cumbersome at times, especially when loading the images. I haven't found a better option though…making sad face!

  16. Why school cant teach us this way?

  17. Nice presentation guys. Thank you =]

  18. Great information, I love Neil Patel s videos.

  19. When I schedule posts on automated scheduling tools (I use Blog2Social), how often should I post, and how many times?

  20. Hello Neil, I am a UI/UX Designer & WordPress developer how can I get client using social media.
    What Should I do? What are your opinions, Neil?

  21. I use Hootsuite and it's totally true how a lack of reporting makes the client think that nothing is happening (even when the opposite may be true!)

  22. Neil – Thanks for producing this video. You recommend manually scheduling posts with Facebook. What do you recommend if you have too many clients to manually post on Facebook for each one?

  23. Hi Neil and Adam, I am an admin for a client's Facebook business page and I want to use Hootsuite to manager her social media. Do I log into my own Facebook page in order to add her Facebook business page, or do I login to her Facebook page?

  24. My mind is definitely blown! I love the content fellas. Thank you for the inside scoop on social media management tools

  25. What's the best way to get my first client as a Social Media Marketing Agency?

    Thanks for so much insight, all the best!

  27. What kind of reporting software do use to show your clients?

  28. Hootsuite not good at posting videos, does meet Edgar. I like facebooks scheduler better though.

  29. I was using Hootsuite and sometimes Buffer. And now I've learn about a new tool MeetEdgar.

    Would be interested in exploring the automatic resharing feature of MeetEdgar.

    And would keep in mind that I'll post directly on Facebook without using any of these tools.

  30. Does it really impact the number of reach when we manually publish a post on Facebook rather than scheduling it through HootSuite or Buffer?

  31. Mind blown. ?. Awesome content Neil. Thanks.

  32. Thanks a lots to you for inspiration about emailing, Mostofa

  33. Hey Neil. One issue I have is that my website is for a business that does physical therapy and other things, but it's not really ranking for any associated terms. Instead it ranks for our blogs on MMA and boxing. I checked Ahrefs and even that says our top 10 competitors are other combat websites. So, how do I make Google recognise the site as one for physical therapy and not a combat sports blog?
