Welcome to BS’ing with Brandi where our mission is to #GetShitDone. I'm your host Brandi Good and today we’re going to talk about digital detoxing, especially for business owners and entrepreneurs who are in situations where they legitimately can’t just completely turn off their phone.
My social media wasn’t very good when I started marketing my business. I still see social media newbies making the same mistakes to this day. A single piece of software isn’t going to make you a social media superstar overnight, but if you have trouble thinking of what to post about or making consistent graphics to share, then PromoRepublic is a tool that’s going to help you out a lot!
I get it. Social media is changing quickly. You are busy running your business and you don’t have the time to stay on top of all of the updates that are happening constantly (I’m looking at you, Facebook!). I am compiling all of the most relevant changes that you need to know about here in a single post - bookmark it and check back monthly!
There is no such thing as *the best* social media scheduling tool anymore - as social media features continue to grow and business needs evolve, new platforms with new and unique features emerge at all price points. You need to use the tool that works best for you and your business needs. Keep reading to see what kind of features you might need to consider and which platforms they can be found on.
It’s unlikely that you’ll find 1 single tool that does absolutely everything you need (unless you can afford to shell out for an expensive option) so keep in mind that you may need to compromise when it comes to some features, or you may even need to use 2 tools (or alternatively 1 tool with the native network scheduler).
Do you see those businesses out there who post on social media consistently with thoughtful, relevant content? Do you wish you could be one of them?
You don’t necessarily need a big budget or a big team - you need to get organized! A workflow is going to accomplish that, and it’s going to help you stay accountable to yourself at the same time. As a bonus, having your workflows developed will make it easy peasy to outsource when you’re ready to hand off your social media!
Today I’d like to introduce you to the latest newcomer to the social media game: SocialAider. It’s extremely affordable for small businesses and entrepreneurs, and has an easy to use interface. If are bootstrapping and social media is a large part of your marketing plan, then read on.
