Scheduling on Social Media
Scheduling on social media will not only save you time in the long run, it’ll also make you money. We all want social media to work for us, but so little of us actually put the work in to make it work. It saddens me to see how many people open a business and give up within a matter of months ‘because social media isn’t working for them’.
Maybe opening a business wasn’t meant for them, because trust me, it’s not easy. If it was, we’d all be quitting our jobs and earning thousands a week from putting the odd tweet out or Facebook post right? BUT it’s not that easy, however, it’s still possible… with work. It takes a special kind of resilience to grow a business and make social media work for you.
Do I schedule on social media?
Damn straight I do! Especially for the corset page, I have 8-10 posts go out a day and most of those are scheduled posts. Scheduling on social media means I get to reach my audience when I’m sleeping, whilst I’m cooking or whilst I’m watching a film with my 2 children. Sounds great doesn’t it? You can too.
I admit, I don’t schedule too much for this business, because mostly I do post on my social media platforms daily, just to show people it can be done. However, I make most of my connections through networking online and sometimes in person.
I’ve digressed. Let’s get back to scheduling on social media. The children and I go away for a week on Friday and I want to spend the least amount of time online as I can whilst there. So I am currently scheduling on social media like my life depends on it. Can you imagine? 8 posts a day on the corset page, maybe once a day on my social success page (as well as live posting) and then 2-3 a day in the corset group. It’s nuts!! Oh and let’s not forget my clients!! Not to mention the live posting too. That’s dedication for you!
It’s basically CRAZY for me before I go on holiday, but it’s so worth it once I’m away, because it’s all working for itself. Not to mention that I’m even more ready for my holiday by then!
You scheduling on social media
Now it’s your turn. Yep – I’m not letting you get away with it. Even if it’s just one post a day, it’s more than you’re doing now if you never schedule any of your social media. Go ahead, go and schedule 1-2 posts a day for the next few days and see how you get on. Oh…. and don’t just schedule sales posts!! You know how much I hate that. BUILD relationships people. Go Go Go.
