Since the early days of the internet, Web entrepreneurs have debated best practices and approaches to running internet businesses. These discussions have included how many websites you can manage as well as how many social media profiles you can monitor at the same time. Now that cryptosocial media has arrived, entrepreneurs will have to figure out how many cryptosocial media accounts they can manage simultaneously.
First, lets’ talk about the difference between cryptosocial and traditional social media.
How Is Cryptosocial Media Different Than Legacy Social Media?
Social media is a tool. Nothing more, nothing less.
As a tool, there are various uses that are legitimate for social media. That’s true of cryptosocial media and legacy social media. For instance, here are some of the various ways people use traditional social media:
- Keeping in touch with friends
- Making new friends
- Professional networking
- Marketing a business
- Showcasing one’s talent
- Earning affiliate income
- Promoting events
- Arguing over politics
- Sharing ideas
- Assembling with likeminded people in groups
That’s 10 different ways people currently use social media. With cryptosocial media, all of those ways are still valid, but there is one other way that cryptosocial media users can legitimately use the tool that users of traditional social media can’t. One can use cryptosocial media to earn cryptocurrencies by posting content to the platforms or using protocols to monetize one’s content on web properties one owns.
This is an important distinction because if one is attempting to monetize all of one’s content on the Web, then one will have to make some hard choices. One of those is whether or not to continue posting to traditional social media platforms.
Cryptosocial Entrepreneurs Must Make Hard Choices
There are two ways of looking at social media, traditional and cryptosocial, as a tool. First, one can realize that traditional social media still has a place and can be used as a promotional tool for one’s cryptosocial content. The other way to look at it is that legacy social media can take away from your time posting to cryptosocial platforms and therefore be a distraction that causes you to lose income.
I think both of these points of view are valid.
If you already have large followings on traditional social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, then you can funnel that traffic to your cryptosocial platforms. By siphoning traffic from traditional social media to cryptosocial media, you could pick up extra followers, likes, and social interaction on your cryptosocial media accounts that should lead to additional crypto income. However, as small an ecosystem as cryptosocial is at this time, you should realize that this approach may not lead to many rewards in the short term. Long-term, you could build your future income using this method.
If you do not have large followings on traditional social media or no presence at all, you’ll have to spend time building that following. And, yes, it is very time consuming. Your best bet is to forego that process and simply build your platform on the cryptosocial sites you plan to post your content to.
How Far Can You Spread Yourself?
All of us have 24 hours in a day and seven days a week. How we make use of the time we have available is very important in terms of our income earning potential. First, I would determine how you plan to use cryptosocial media.
As I said earlier, all the same reasons people use traditional social media are valid for cryptosocial media. That means if you use social media for promoting a business, marketing, and other promotional activities because it’s more valuable to you to attract new clients, customers, and partners, then you can treat cryptosocial media as you treat traditional social media and simply incorporate it into your routine the same way you’d incorporate Twitter and Facebook.
On the other hand, if you intent is to earn cryptocurrencies for your content, the approach should be different. Realistically, however, there’s no reason you can’t do both.
Start by figuring how much time you have to dedicate to cryptosocial content production. Do you have one hour a week or one hour a day to commit to creating content for your followers? How much time you have will determine your income potential.
You’ll also want to survey the different cryptosocial options and see which ones might have the best potential for your content. Some types of content does better on certain platforms. For instance, video content seems to do better at LBRY/Odysee even though the platform wants to attract other types of content. Steemit and Hive are social blogging platforms, so if your interest is in sharing cat memes and nothing but cat memes, that might not go over so well (unless your cat memes are on the level of Vincent Van Gogh and Michelangelo.
Once you narrow down your options, decide which platforms you like best. I recommend prioritizing them. That way, if you find that you can add another platform to your routine without killing your back (or typing fingers), then you can add the next platform into your schedule seamlessly.
You’ll need to gauge how long it takes to create your content and post it. I recommend a web-based time clock for that. There are plenty of options online for time clocks. Just Google it.
I also recommend starting small. Start with one or two platforms at first and then add an additional platform once a month before you reach your peak in hourly production. If you’re doing this part-time, and most people are right now, you’ll be dedicating your personal and family time to your cryptosocial project. You want to make sure the time you spend with family doesn’t suffer.
Do you have the time to create original content for every platform? If you do, great. If not, you can get away with reposting content from one platform to another. I’d recommend adding a link at the bottom of each piece to the original publication at the first platform you publish each piece of content to. It’s a courtesy to your readers and notifies the search engines about which one came first. Only one will rank in the search engines, so make sure it’s the one you’d like to see in the search results.
Reposting content is a time saver, but if you have a lot of the same followers on each of the platforms you post to, you’ll be cannibalizing your results and that will hurt your rewards earning potential.
These are some of the things you’ll need to think about in determining how many cryptosocial platforms you can manage at one time. If your goal is to become a full-time content entrepreneur, chart your path carefully and prudently. I hope you succeed.
