As we finish the first month of 2021, I’m here to remind you to PLAN AHEAD!
It’s so important that you have a strategy when it comes to posting on social media. You can shoot from the hip and claim that social media marketing doesn’t work OR you can put a plan in place, stick to a creating a content calendar and schedule your posts in advance.
You don’t need to block a ton of time out of your schedule to do this either! AND…if you are struggling to get organized and plan, I have a great resource for you! I created the Social Media Planner–I promise you if will help you get you where you want to go with your social media marketing. You can grab the planner HERE.
Part of your content strategy should include an element of FUN! That’s why I share these National Holidays. You can utilize a few of these a month that will resonate with your audience. These posts should increase engagement!
