JGoldsborough: @jeffespo Agree 100 percent. We don't expect companies or ppl to be available 24/7 offline. #pr20chat
ChristianGAdams
ChristianGAdams: This is where we start the debate about marketing automation to do the work while you sleep. #pr20chat
jeffespo
jeffespo: @jspepper again it is still stupidity. If your company does not have 24-hour support, why have social on? It is OK to be human #pr20chat
the_spinmd
the_spinmd: @jeffespo @jspepper The trick isn't balancing work, it's balancing life. Weave work into life, not other way around. #pr20chat
sue_anne
sue_anne: @prtini Yes, absolutely. I think not enough are taking this into consideration. #pr20chat
cloudspark
cloudspark: @chrisjschmidt you might want to read my post on today's solopr blog about being the only employee: bit.ly/GCpsEJ #pr20chat
jspepper
jspepper: @prtini But as the boss - and the owner - there's a different expectation for yourself. Can't ask them to do what you won't do. #pr20chat
JGoldsborough
JGoldsborough: @chrisjschmidt @cloudspark R u making it overwhelming? I have that prob. Been pushing back on deadlines. Is it really due ASAP? #pr20chat
jeffespo
jeffespo: @jgoldsborough if you don't set hours on your accounts, you are a fool and setting yourself up for burnout #pr20chat check but don't kill u
jspepper
jspepper: @jeffespo So you just described every Gen XY person in social media there. #pr20chat
chrisjschmidt
chrisjschmidt: Although I think most people are understanding with a wait time. They now it isn't 24/7. Responding in general is key. #pr20chat
prtini
prtini: Q1 The workday has evolved. If I expect my team to be available at night, I need to make some concessions at other times. #pr20chat
jspepper
jspepper: @cwilmc That's why a company like that should have outsourced 24/7 customer service with _crisis_ number. And why Twitter is CS. #pr20chat
cwilmc
cwilmc: @prtini Oh definitely there is a difference. If it's not 911 or important, I (and others) won't die trying to respond ASAP at 2AM. #pr20chat
JGoldsborough
JGoldsborough: RT @jspepper: @cwilmc Most of what we do is not life or death. A 1.00 AM crisis will still be there at 8 AM to take care of. #pr20chat
JGoldsborough
JGoldsborough: @sue_anne @cwilmc Many brands set online hours like they do offline. Customers seem to respect it. #pr20chat
TeamAffect
TeamAffect: Excited to jump in on #pr20chat tonight. A1: Knowing what your clients need from #sm is crucial, which will also help to plan out your time.
jspepper
jspepper: @sue_anne But it doesn't take you personally. You're a cog, nothing more and nothing less. That's just the truth about PR/SM. #pr20chat
cwilmc
cwilmc: @sue_anne I agree to an extent. It's very hard to predict a crisis so you need to have open availability at most times. #pr20chat
JGoldsborough
JGoldsborough: And then you hate work. You burn out. RT @melshoults: A1: With social media, if you're awake, you're at work #pr20chat
jspepper
jspepper: @prtini Of course they'll be burnt out. Junior staff that have no concept of balance, and what is real work. #pr20chat
chrisjschmidt
chrisjschmidt: I get some sleep. I'm the only member of the team though. It does get overwhelming at times. @cloudspark #pr20chat
sue_anne
sue_anne: @jspepper Yes, but I think a lot of us in PR / social have very strong ties to the work we do and take things personal #pr20chat
JessicaKamens
JessicaKamens: Easier to have PR agency experience earlier in your career because you are younger and have a strong drive #PRCareers101 #pr20chat
cloudspark
cloudspark: @OhSoNay @JessicaKamens disagree with that guideline, there are no pre-set rules. depends on industry, expectation. #pr20chat
cwilmc
cwilmc: @jspepper Depends on the industry. If my co's software bugs out, it can cause huge problems for customers, have to be available. #pr20chat
jeffespo
jeffespo: @jspepper people who look at their job as 24-7 without VP of C in their titles are taking themselves too serious #pr20chat
jspepper
jspepper: @sue_anne Yep, I'm talking large firms and bigger clients. First project was WW daily clipping for Compaq. But my time is my time. #pr20chat
JGoldsborough
JGoldsborough: RT @pr20chat: Q1 Social media never shuts off. How do you go "off the clock"? Or, do you? #pr20chat
sue_anne
sue_anne: Tide is a great example of a missed opportunity for a big brand. They should have had someone monitoring PR / social on weekend #pr20chat
JGoldsborough
JGoldsborough: I was hoping to be on time to tonight's #pr20chat on work-life balance, but I got stuck at work. #pr20chat #hereallweek
prtini
prtini: @melshoults Is that healthy though? Won't that lead to burnout? #pr20chat
cloudspark
cloudspark: @chrisjschmidt sure hope you get sleep in that 24/7 cycle #pr20chat
jspepper
jspepper: @jeffespo About life/work balance, and how SM is 24/7 so how do you balance it. #pr20chat
PRSSA_UD
PRSSA_UD: RT @JessicaKamens: Your resume should be 1 page per decade of experience #PRCareers101 #pr20chat #PR
jspepper
jspepper: @cloudspark It's odd that people don't get that this is about their own lives. Peopel come first, this isn't life/death issues. #pr20chat
sue_anne
sue_anne: @jspepper Great idea for large companies, but not so much for solo-preneurs or small PR / social teams at companies #pr20chat
prtini
prtini: @cwilmc Do you differentiate between a crisis and regular updates? Even during non-crisis times, social is always going ... #pr20chat

melshoults
melshoults: A1: With social media, if you're awake, you're at work #pr20chat
chrisjschmidt
chrisjschmidt: A1: I guess I'm technically never off the clock. But I set aside time to monitor/reply on breaks for my other job. #pr20chat
sue_anne
sue_anne: @cwilmc It doesn't stop and you should always be available for a crisis, but that doesn't mean you have to be 365/24/7 #pr20chat
jspepper
jspepper: @cwilmc Disagree - most of what we do is not life or death. A 1.00 AM crisis will still be there at 8 AM to take care of. #pr20chat

sue_anne
sue_anne: Q1: One thing I've done recently is that I can't post to work social media with my phone. #pr20chat
prtini
prtini: @chrisjschmidt Hi Chris, focusing on work-life balance tonight. Q1: With social media always going, how do you go off the clock? #pr20chat
jspepper
jspepper: @pr20chat That's why you have to have teams around in diff time zones. Or, well, "office hours" #pr20chat
cwilmc
cwilmc: A1: Social doesn't stop, which means you can't stop either. A 911 at 1AM needs to be responded to swiftly. #pr20chat
cloudspark
cloudspark: a1: you have to have good monitoring tools for clients to keep you informed, for your own effort, you have to schedule the time #pr20chat
sue_anne
sue_anne: Q1: I think you have to look at your potential customer base. Are they US or global? If US, it's a bit easier to set office hours #pr20chat
JGoldsborough
JGoldsborough: @jakesjournal @prtini LOL, I see what you did there :). #pr20chat

JessicaKamens: When you are interviewing the company as much as they are interviewing you, not every opportunity is the right one #PRCareers101 #pr20chat
prtini
prtini: @sue_anne I think many of us on this chat struggle with balance. We can learn together. Or form a virtual support group. Ha. #pr20chat
