How to Keep Up with Notifications | #GetSocialSmart Show Episode 026

A question I get asked all the time is, “Katie, how can I keep up with all of my notifications?” So this video is going to share with you a few of my secret tips for how I keep up with my notifications.

First and foremost, I do not check my notifications until I’m ready to deal with them. It’s just like your mail. You know when you get your mail and then you just come in, you just lay it on the counter and all of a sudden three days later you’ve got a pile of mail? No, deal with the mail once. Same thing with notifications.

Tip number two, is have a system for how you’re going to be checking your notifications. I tend to go through them in the morning where I will go though Twitter and then Snapchat and then Facebook and then Instagram. It’s quick and it’s in the moment and it usually takes me about 15 minutes or so to go through them all really fast, but I’ve got a little bit of a system and a little bit of a rhythm.

The other tip I’ll give you is limit the number of apps you have on your phone. I think sometimes we have a gagillion apps on our phone and they’re all giving us notifications, so if you haven’t done a little spring cleaning on your phone yet, go into your phone, go on to your notifications and take off those notifications that you don’t really need.

The way I look at it is if I can do it, and I’m on every single social media network, holding them all together, if I can do it, I know you can do it as well. I always say you don’t have to be everywhere, pick one or two platforms you really enjoy, where your clients are at. Get into a system. Get into a routine and make it a part of what you do each and every day and at the end of the day, it’s all about having a strategy.
