Daily Social Media Checklist

A client of mine recently asked me for a daily checklist or Social Media “To Do” list for their business.

First-I thought this was a great question. Second-I think everyone should have this and keep it next to their computer. Third-The better organized you are with your social media tasks, the more effecient you will be as you carry out your strategies. Feel free to add (or delete) as you see fit.
