We have some very good social media posters and managers on our team. We delegate all of our social media tasks to them but then I am also very active myself on Twitter and Facebook and trying to be more active on Linkedin. I like to post and network online. But the vas do all my tedious tasks and repetitive tasks. We do social media for several brokers and agents.

I have a couple of companies that I delegate posting articles on my business page. We are all notified when they are posted so that if someone comments, I can respond.

As for the posts that they post - they're all real estate related and are only posted on my FB biz pages. My personal page is where the vast majority of my sphere is and that's all me.

I think one must base their decision on the role they have assigned social Media in their business.

If it is personality based, then it is dependent on the owner.

If it is information based, it can be delegated. However, it is best to keep it local. The hired gun needs to be familiar with the area and make certain generic, but inappropriate, terminology is not used, such as basement in coastal Florida.

As others have pointed out, you could lose 'your voice.'

Because my 'purpose' is lead generation and not personality building I hire others to coordinate the FB ads with web content.

I would suggest RealFlow or Effectual Resolutions.

I am always after some of my key people to hire more assistants and delegate more, and they often tell me the same thing.

AR has been an area that has been suggested that an assistant would be more appropriate to the job since I do have higher responsibilities.

But it is hard to give up the reins when a personalized task like social media is involved.

Will look into some options for parts of it.
