Social Media Tip: Use a program to schedule social media posts in advance
It can be difficult to stay organized and stay on top of posting consistently to all of the social media programs. To make it easier to stay organized, and consistent I suggest using a program such as Hootsuite to schedule your social media posts in advance.
Staying consistent on social media is key to success. Posting regular content on all of your platforms helps you stay relevant, and keeps your audience engaged. I recently visited a Facebook Page with over 10,000 followers that had not posted since May. What a shame. Think about all of the potential website traffic and sales they have missed out on.
Thankfully there are tools out there that are inexpensive or free that will allow you to schedule content in advance and help you stay organized and consistent.
Hootsuite is one of those programs – and it is free for 3 social media profiles. So you can easily manage content on your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at no additional cost.
Prescheduling your content in advance will allow you time each day then to actually interact, engage, and monitor your social media profiles as well as work on growing your audience.
Hootsuite can also be used to monitor and engage if you set up the streams with the right columns.
