- Pick a date
Batch Your Content Tip #1: Pick a Date
Active & consistent social media allows you to stay relevant to your audience & connect on a more personal level. So, let’s start with selecting a date each week/month to work on batching content. Create a routine that works for you. Whether that looks like every morning after you check in clients or once a week.
Be realistic with your time. If you start off with something that is beyond your energy and time, then you are already setting yourself up for failure. Start small if you need to and work your way up. But you’ve got to start somewhere, right?
Batch Your Content Tip #2: Strategy
Know your audience. Who are you talking to? Who are you trying to reach? Know your content pillars. What types of topics are you talking about? Set campaigns. What call-to-actions or promotions are you wanting to share? Be specific in your strategy.
