Time is more important than money, since you can always make more money, but can never make another minute. Lay out your social media strategy as though your minutes were money, and you will see a bigger return, much faster.

Sean Platt, The Digital Writer, believes that there has never been a better time for writers. Yet, too many of them are struggling for pennies, and wasting time with social media. He hopes to change all of that with The Digital Writer.
Started one month ago, The Digital Writer does things differently than most blogs, by not releasing daily content. Instead, the site focuses on one "epic" post each week, launching mixed media, content rich guides to help modern writers get smarter faster.
So far, The Digital Writer has released, "The Ultimate Guide to Twitter" and "The Ultimate Guide to Blogging." With this week's release, Platt hopes to give modern writers a thorough understanding of social media, while helping them to understand that an ROI isn't hard to get, so long as you know what you're doing.
Platt says, "Social media is an instant conduit, connecting you with others in your space. This includes freelance clients, buyers for your information products or future bestsellers, and fans for your blog. It’s an easy-to-use and always-available way to amplify your network a little each day. Using social media well means you can tap directly into your market and eliminate the barriers that once existed between creator and consumer. The more you understand how to leverage your online relationships, the more you’ll be able to maximize the value of every word you write."
As with all The Digital Writer's Epic Posts, The Ultimate Guide to Social Media comes with a free eBook, "The Digital Writer's Guide to Social Media (What You Really Need to Know)" But because Platt believes that too many writers waste their time on social media, The Digital Writer is giving away a bonus eBook this week as well: "The Digital Writer's Guide to Social Media in 15 Minutes a Day (Better Networks, Less Time)"
All with the entire lineup of Digital Writer ebooks, these both come with free printables, available in the Digital Writer Member’s Area, where they provide additional free tools and resources. Sign-up is free and comes with the weekly freebie alert:
Platt says, "Time is more important than money, since you can always make more money, but can never make another minute. Lay out your social media strategy as though your minutes were money, and you will see a bigger return, much faster."
He also adds that writers must, "balance their natural preferences with logical decisions, and network with the right blend of fans, friends, and potential buyers, while finding the sites that are most appealing and fun for them."
To make the post especially bookmark worthy, "The Ultimate Guide to Social Media" gathers some of the best blogging posts previously published from around the web.
Both "The Digital Writer's Guide to Social Media (What You Really Need to Know)" and "The Digital Writer's Guide to Social Media in 15 Minutes a Day (Better Networks, Less Time)" will be free from April 24, 2012 to April 28, 2012.
