How to Easily Batch Content For Social Media Posting
Content creation can be fun! If you are one of those entrepreneurs or small business owners that finds content creation simply too time consuming, read on my friend. Here are some of my tried and true tips to easily batch content for social media posting:
1. Planning is key - take some time each week to sit down and plan out your content. This can be as simple as brainstorming ideas, or using a tool like Google Calendar to map out what you want to post and when.
2. Repurpose existing content - don't feel like you have to start from scratch every time you create new content. If you have blog posts, articles, or even old social media posts that are still relevant, repurpose them!
3. Take advantage of scheduling tools - there are many great scheduling tools out there (Hootsuite, Buffer, Sprout Social, etc.) that can help you easily schedule your content in advance. This can save you a ton of time in the long run.
4. Batch similar content together - if you have a bunch of great blog posts to share, or a bunch of new product photos, batch them together into one social media post.
I personally do not spend a ton of time creating content. And I don't lose precious hours thinking about what I'm going to post.
You know why?
I ask my audience what content they want to see.
I ask them how I can serve them.
I ask them what they need guidance with.
I ask what they're working on, what's challenging them and what they need help with.
I ask them what their frustrations are and what questions they have concerning their business.
