Growing Your Pet Reach In 15 Minutes

Guest post by Blog Manager Robbi Hess

There are times when I bemoan the
fact that I don’t have enough time in the day or enough time to
Picture6 complete
Project X, Y or Z, but then I realized that rather than looking at Project X as
a HUGE project, I started looking at it as project that could break into bite
size morsels and actually complete. The idea of breaking that big project down
into smaller portions relieved a lot of stress and got me to thinking… what
could I (or you) accomplish in 15-minute chunks.

When you consider what can be done to
build the reach of your pet blogging and social media campaigns in less than 15
minutes a stretch, you will likely be even more productive than you’d ever
imagined.


Here are 15 items you could complete
in 15 minutes (or less):

  • Research a blog post
  • Take a picture for upcoming blog
    posts
  • Outline a proposal to a site on which
    you’d like to be a guest blogger
  • Write a blog post (yes, a post can be
    written in 15 minutes!)
  • Write down notes on updates you want
    to make to your website
  • Pen a paragraph for a book you want
    to write
  • You could write five (challenge
    yourself for 10) Tweets
  • Set the timer for 15 minutes and
    update your LinkedIn, Google+ and Facebook page
  • Brainstorm blog ideas then put them
    on your editorial calendar
  • Comment on three blog posts by pet bloggers
    that you follow
  • Pick up the phone and finish an
    interview with an influential pet blogger (provided you had it scheduled prior
    to your 15-minute time slot)
  • Connect with five individuals or
    businesses on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google+
  • Comment on status updates of
    individuals or business pages that you follow
  • Add to, delete from, or sign up for
    Google alerts.
  • Dive into those to-be-read books in
    your stack so you can get them reviewed and on your website.

What can you accomplish in 15
minutes?

    I have a stopwatch feature on my iPhone and use it for segments of uninterrupted time. It helps me manage my day. Great ideas here, too! TY!

    Great tips. Though I have to say I have NEVER wrote a post in 15 minutes. I guess I’m a stickler for accuracy and over-think everything.
    There were posts I wrote which took me two days to put together (research and verify every bit of information–never satisfied with one source only)

    I can usually write very fast. I think finding good picturesand editing them takes the most time but I enjoy that part. It’s just hard not to get sidetracked! Great tips, thanks for sharing.

    I think this post is great. I am student at UNR, and one of my professors is always talking about how to improve your online presence. And these tips are great. I can add them into my toolbox of knowledge.
    Thanks!!
