Tips on Tuesday

Scheduling tools can be really useful when managing your social media feeds.

Schedule

However a word of warning, remember scheduling posts means you’re posting when you’re not actually able to, make sure you allow yourself time to review the posts and any responses to them so you don’t miss anything important!

In addition, allow yourself to cancel scheduled posts if they’re not longer appropriate in light of wider world happenings or indeed changes within your business.

Scheduling tools are useful, but they don’t replace you!  They may save you a job, but don’t forget they can create other tasks that need managing!

Tips on Tuesday

January is a great time to consider making changes to your social media posting plans.

Have you thought about changing the times you post?

Try posting (or scheduling a post) for just before or just after the hour.  If people are leaving meetings a touch early, it’s a great time to check their social media.  And indeed if they’re running a few minutes late? They might check their social media on the way to their next appointment.

Think about ensuring some of your posts appear over common lunch hours. When do you check your social media feed? That’s right, in your lunch break.  Make use of people’s habits to create opportunity!

At this time of year we like to make a rough schedule of our social media marketing plan for the year; think about promotions you might like to run, any events you’re going to be attending and schedule in social media posts for these.

Whilst we never make a firm social media calendar – after all social media is reactive – we like to have some content pencilled in.  Somehow it makes planning for the year a lot less scary when you KNOW you have things to talk about!

Let us know how you make your plans!
