Welcome to #WorkshopWednesday, my weekly feature with a focus on all things blogging! Each week there’ll be tips, tricks and advice on how to get your blog running like a well oiled machine!
With blogging comes social media and a lot of it. It’s really easy to lose hours of valuable time manually inputting your content into the various social media platforms. Not only is this incredibly boring, it’s uneconomical when you think about the worth of your time and how it could be put to better use.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be posting to each of your social media platforms. I’m saying you should put a scheduling system in place to do it for you! Most, if not all scheduler’s have a free version that you can try out, but the paid versions are much more efficient and will literally save you hours.
I’ve tried a few different platforms including Hootsuite and Crowdfire, but SocialOomph is bar far may favourite. I pay around $3/week for a Twitter Unlimited account. It may seem like an unnecessary expense, but when you begin to reap the benefits it will feel more than worth the spend. After all, you have to speculate to accumulate! There’s a free trial available too which lets you get a feel for how everything works.
My Twitter Unlimited subscription allows me to schedule more tweets an hour than the free version and it allows for tweets to be repeated until I pause them. This means that I no longer spend hours every Sunday evening, inputting my evergreen tweets. One tweet, click repeat, DONE! I’m a huge fan of the queue reservoirs it offers too. I use it a lot for tweets that I want to be published in a continuous loop, such as inspirational quotes to keep us all motivated!
Your time is valuable and finding ways to make the most of it is essential to make your business tick! Find a scheduling system that suits you and save you self a whole load of hassle!
