Now that you have finished writing your blog post, and have checked everything to ensure that it's correct, then it's time to hit post. That's when the real work begins. I always find that I spend way more time promoting my blog than writing it.
I have found that since making a social media sheet for each of my blogs that I save time and energy because I now know what I have posted and groups I need to go back into to complete threads.
Ensure that before you post your blog post that you make all of your images for all of your media needs. I use Quotescover.com for making up mine. They have all the relevant sizes, all I need to do is add the quote and change the font and colour to match my image. I also always ensure to file away all the images that I have used to designated files and off of my desktop so that I know they have been completed and are still available for future use.
I ended up making my social media sheet in Excel, it took about 15 minutes in total to make one up for each blog since they both have different social media needs.
Some of the items in the sheet only need to be done once, it's the daily posts to Twitter, Instagram etc, and the daily FaceBook Group threads that are the ones I find are harder to keep track of. I am part of several FaceBook Groups and multiple Pinterest Group Boards, so knowing what I have done daily and what needs to be completed so that I can join the next days thread.
Ensure to make up your own social media calendar, it will save you so much time and energy. You can find plenty of different models of social media calendars on the Internet, but I think that it is best if you make up your own if you can. Make a calendar that fits to the needs of your blog.
In our next post I will touch on the FaceBook Groups and Pinterest boards that I have found have given my blog a huge increase in traffic.
