Social Media is a huge part of doing business in today’s world… but it is also the biggest time suck! More time is spent on social media than any other activity according to recent polls and the numbers only continue to grow. Being successful on social media with your direct sales business is simple – but requires a strategy to make sure that it does not consume your time! When you are literally at your customer’s fingertips on a regular basis, it makes it easier to make more sales, book more parties and add more consultants to your team. Here are my three favorite Social Media Scheduling Tools to maximize your online presence – without losing control of your time!
PostPlanner is a terrific tool for scheduling posts to Facebook and Twitter. Not only can you schedule content, but PostPlanner actually pulls in content that is already popular online. We know that sharing content on Facebook which has a higher edgerank will automatically help boost your visibility, so PostPlanner seeks out and finds these posts and makes it simple for you to share. It even categorizes them by subject and media type. With PostPlanner you simply connect your social media accounts, create a schedule for when you want things to post (based on your Facebook Insights for instance) and then begin scheduling posts. Make sure to abide by the 80/20 rule – 80% outside content and 20% your business content!
Grum is an amazing tool for scheduling your Instagram posts right from your computer! This is not only great for scheduling, but you can use programs like Canva and PicMonkey to create perfect, beautiful, branded photos for your Instagram feed! Grum lets you schedule your Instagram posts one week at a time – making it simple to sit down one time and organize your entire weekly campaign!
Tailwind makes you a Pinterest Master in just a few clicks! Tailwind is the most robust Pinterest management tool I have ever encountered, and while there is a learning curve – it has absolutely changed how I do business on Pinterest! In fact, between using Tailwind and creating beautiful Pinterest-friendly images with these tools, Pinterest has become our #1 referral source to Party Plan Divas! How cool is that!?
