Tips for Simplifying One's Social Media Workflow
Tip #1: Create a weekly hashtag calendar
- Plan a different theme for each day of the week and relate to a popular hashtag in your industry.
- If you oversee a pastry company plan every monday to be #mondayyumday and feature a dessert from their menu.
- If you plan one theme each day, it'll be much easier to generate new ideas and even re-purpose older content.
Tip #2: Re-purpose Content!
- Any posts 60 days or older should be cycled through your account again.
- Make some minor design tweaks, or if they were high-perfoming, use them again with a different call to action!
- Remember! We live in a world where people rarely remember what's not right in front of them, so don't be afraid to cycle your creations through again on a regular basis.
Tip #3: Ask for UGC
- UGC (user generated content) can be an important part of your weekly or monthly plan. Plus, it can save you TONS of time!
- How are customers using the products or services your client sells? You'd be surprised how much people like to share their experiences.
- They can submit the content, and you can then feature it on your channels. You'll save a lot of time and energy getting the community to help you generate content.
