Are you still writing social media each day or have you found scheduling?
A while back, I discovered that planning my social media in advance allowed me to develop a conversation with my customers over a number of posts.
Then, I learnt about scheduling my posts.
This meant that I could plan what I wanted to say, spend a couple of hours a week creating my posts and then scheduling them.
I schedule my blogs and then I schedule my posts to go out just after my blogs.
You're wondering why?
Well, when I used to post in real time it actually took me longer because I was writing each post individually, opening up each bit of software individually, and finding my calendars out.
By planning what I want to talk about over a week or two, I'm more focused and can be clearer and link my posts better.
This means that I actually create better work but spend less time on it.
And the other advantage? When life gets in the way, I don't have to worry that I've got a post to get out because I've already scheduled it. This means I can stay in bed on Sunday, I can go out with friends unexpectedly and I can spend the evening creating new products for my travelling haberdashery, etui coterie.
Infact, as you read this I'm at the hospital supporting a friend.
What resources can you use?
I use Hootsuite. Whilst I use the paid version as it allows me to link lots of social media platforms linked to it but hootsuite offer a free version that let's you link two social media accounts to it - great for your facebook page and instagram.
