Posted on: January 23, 2019

Social Media…

Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Snapchat… These are just a few of the top social media platforms. It seems everyone is on multiple forms of social media these days! 

We all know that our culture is largely influenced by social media, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere! So, for many of your organizations, having a social media presence is very valuable. 

For many small nonprofit organizations, chances are you may not have a dedicated Social Media Specialist on staff. We recognize it is not realistic for those responsible for monitoring your social media account(s) to sit down, create and share posts in real time every single day of the week… We get it!

Insert batching. 

To develop a consistent social media strategy, we suggest you start with batching your social media tasks. If you’re not familiar with batching, it’s a work strategy of basically grouping similar tasks and getting them all done in one block of time to improve efficiency and productivity!

We suggest once a week, set aside a block of time, create all of the next week’s posts, schedule them and BOOM! You’re done until the next week.

There are so many things to consider when scheduling your social media posts. Like accurately reflecting your brand and mission, creating quality images, writing copy to accompany each image, researching hashtags, monitoring your engagement, reviewing analytics, replying to comments… and more! We know it can feel overwhelming.

But today, we are going to start by showing you how to schedule posts on Facebook pages you manage! This tip will help you not only get started in the right direction when developing a consistent social media presence, but also help you realize that social media isn’t so hard or confusing after all. You can do this!
