Make marketing fun again! It can be easy to consistently and effectively market your business. With a few key strategies in place and simplified approach you can streamline your marketing to make it effortless.
Plan Content Ahead
When it comes to marketing, it is best to be ahead of the curve and begin talking about things ahead of when you’re launching or promoting. Plan your marketing ahead at least a month in advance from when you’re promoting it. This allows you to create/ repurpose content that directly relates to what you’re selling. When you plan ahead you have the advantage to bulk plan and create, center your message around what’s coming next for your biz, and knock out your tasks in one sitting instead of scrambling to post something so you choose a meme in a hot panic. Don’t do that, plan ahead and create once a week and rock your marketing!
Batch Create Content
Spend some time each week to create and schedule your social media content. Sit down with a game plan of what you are talking about this week and create all your graphics, captions, hashtags and keywords. For some things like a live stream or IGTV, go ahead and write out your script or cliff notes so you’re ready day of. By planning and creating your marketing content in bulk, you will save not only time, but headspace.
Leverage your existing content to create less and and share more. Your blog post can be made into an IG post or video. Your podcast or YouTube video could and should be embedded on your site as a blog post.nThis lends to creating several graphics for each place your content lives and this, my friend, will help fill your social media content calendar!
The whole idea here is to create less, repurpose more, and create once per week or twice per month to knock out and rock your marketing!
