Lets take a second to talk about some super helpful social media tools! I love these tools so much and use them every day as a social media manager. They save soooo much time and are worth every penny! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Planoly - I use planoly for all my social media post scheduling needs for facebook and instagram! I love the built in holiday calendar, the grid preview, and how easy and intuitive the platform is!
Canva - I honestly do not know what I would do without Canva. 99% of all my posts are made with Canva! You can use premade templates, get them from other creators online, or make your own designs from scratch! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trello - I use trello boards to keep all my content on track. Each one of my clients also gets their own board where we communicate and work on content that they'll love together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Finding fresh new content ideas for your social media feed can be HARD! Lets get real for a second. If the content you're putting out isn't what your audience wants to see... it's never going to go anywhere, right? Doing research and putting your time towards the right things can tremendously increase your accounts traction and exposure! Well Kelly, how do I do that? You might ask. Here are my top three places I draw content inspiration from! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Facebook Groups - Joining a handful of groups related to your niche is a literal LIFE SAVER! Not only can you connect with like minded people and share tips and tricks, but it's a constant flow of content you can draw inspiration from.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pinterest - There's so much content out there. Finding premade boards by other creators can help you narrow down your search faster. Find a few active boards you love and you're in business!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Google - Though it might seem like the most obvious starting choice, people often overlook a good search engine. Search up a few topics you're passionate about writing about and check out related searches. It definitely helps broaden your horizons while staying in your niche!⠀⠀
Social media posts definitely aren't a one size fits all kind of thing. Running a successful account and seeing the results takes time and dedication. If something doesn't work don't give up, just keep pushing forward! ⠀⠀
