Can You Do Social Media Reruns?

Simon Reilly | September 21, 2015 | Filed: Social Media

Time for ChangeI don’t really know but I’m going to give it a whirl. Actually I have been giving it a whirl to rerun social media reruns since I committed in October 2014 to speak at the 2015 New Orleans MDRT in June 2015. This commitment also included speaking on a panel of coaches, publishing a book and designing a brand new exhibit.

On top of that we have been very very busy with coaching clients, speaking and enjoying life since that time.

There have been some decent social media posts since October 2014 that include the speaking transcription submission for the MDRT, transcriptions of the questions and answers that I offered on the panel of coaches at the MDRT, as well as the following;

But I have not been writing like when I first started blogging back in 2004. This bothers me as it is important to me to produce high-quality work. Not that what I have shared has not been high quality, it is not as consistent and real time as I would like it to be.

So given that I am coming up to the 10-year anniversary of starting to speak at financial services conferences and events in January 2016, and that I want to create the business plan for 2016, 2017 and 2018, and more importantly I want to create the Simon Reilly plan for 2016, 2017 and 2018, I am going to continue with social media reruns through to the end of the year.

So you might be wondering where your time is going.

At this time our team has the following on our plate on top of a full practice of coaching clients;

  • 2015 Speaking Marketing Plan
  • 2015 Speaking Marketing E-Mail, Postcard & Video Drip Campaign
  • 2015 Speaking Marketing Prospects Action Steps
  • 2015 Speaking Marketing Video – ID 2 Minute Clips From 180 Minutes Of Video
  • 2015 Speaking Marketing Website Update
  • A new TEDx Talk Application
  • Buffer days estimate for September through to December
  • Change from a coaching-writing-speaking organization to a speaking-coaching-writing organization
  • Cap major spending until Speaking Marketing Plan is complete and followed up on on a weekly basis
  • Coaching Program Intake upgrade to improve coaching client value and retention
  • Coaching Program Inspirational Tipping point upgrade
  • Coaching Program upgrade One-On-One Telephone & Live and Group Telephone & Live
  • Health cholesterol check-preventative

  • Information Management System upgrade
  • MDRT New Orleans 2015 speaking leads follow up
  • NAIFA National exhibit design and pre-conference marketing for October 3, 2015 in New Orleans
  • NAILBA exhibit design for November 19, 2015 in Orlando
  • Personal To Do List
  • Realize the 2018 is going to be our most successful year and that it is important for us to upgrade all systems and get them working this Fall so that we can have a strong start for 2016, contrary to our past 10 years of a too urgent coaching and speaking sales behavioral style
  • Social Media Plan and delegation
  • Time Estimate and Organize September October November December
  • Team Building and Recruiting
  • TV reduction-Increase evening meditation, stretching and reading and writing


  • Goals 2016-2018
  • 2015/2016 Business Plan
  • 2015/2016 Flow Chart including Team
  • Auto replacement insurance investigate
  • Budget cash flow update
  • Budget cash flow 2016
  • Coaching Program In A Box
  • Coaching Program Live Leading Advisor Conference
  • Coaching Program Mindfulness upgrade
  • Coaching Program upgrade iCoach
  • Coaching Prospects Follow Up Program Update for ITP and OPBP
  • Get complete
  • Infusionsoft upgrade (2016)
  • Office clean up
  • Social Media Plan update to include Infusionsoft, Website, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter
  • Canadian & USA tax return

So in order to focus on the  2016, 2017 and 2018 business plan and the Simon Reilly plan and complete the above, and to remain visible and add value on social media, I am going to delegate the creation of social media content from de-personalized direct email communications that I have with clients, existing articles , video & video transcriptions.

The above may not be that big of a revelation as this has been what has been happening since October 2014; it’s just that I am going to formalize it to  give me more space.

So in closing, I’d like to offer you some of these famous TV Sign Offs for now as I will not be doing any real time social media posts until January 2016.
