Social media is a bit like planting trees.
The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
With Christmas coming up, if you haven't started planning your social media then here are our top tips.
One of the key things to creating social media is planning.
If you are like me, then having a visual planner really helps.
I've spent money buying social media calendars over the years but this year, I decided to make my own.
The first thing I needed was a good calendar to keep my info in, that was the easy part. If you have Microsoft then just go to the template page and search for calendars.
Pick one that you like the look of and use that. It doesn't matter if you choose Excel, Word or PowerPoint. What matters is that you work in the format that you are most comfortable with.
Then add in national and international holidays that you want to observe
With Christmas coming, why not add in last posting dates?
Are you running any special promotions? Add those dates in.
Do you support any charities or interest groups awareness days? Add those in too.
Now you have the basis of your calendar.
