FACT! If you were to list the responsibilities you have in a day as a small biz owner we BET you could automate several of them. We challenge you to list out all the things you do in a day over the next week and identify which ones could be automated. BUT before you google an app for a single thing, try to identify a tool that can do them all or at least most. Cause, who needs more logins?
It is always CRICKETS when we ask this question to small biz owners. When was the last time you checked your Instagram Insights? Simply looking at the content you shared in the last 30 days you can filter your content by the number of times someone has completed an action- LIKE VISIT YOUR WEBSITE! Which, we assume is something you want. So, simply, look at that top content and do more of that!
We confess... we live for a strategy. It literally gets us going and we have wayyyy more fun planning than actually doing. But, we know not everyone is like us. So, at least leave with this... The content planning you do today is like a little gift for your future self. When you create strategic systems for social content, email marketing, or blogs for your small businesses, you are saving time in the long run. So please, take a minute, brain dump and then carve out your next strategy!
*Warning* This is a controversial opinion, but Mondays are magic! To us, they feel like a clean slate to get back in the swing of things and go get 'em. We also batch all our work so Mondays are made for admin and checking off those to-lists which make us so happy! Of course, behind our love affair with Mondays are dozens of cups of coffee but, we're only human right? Are you in love with Mondays as much as we are? Share if you agree!
Recent Instagram statistics tell us that organic engagement has fallen from 2020, which was at 1.60%. For reference, the average engagement rate of an Instagram Post is at 1.22%. Long story short? Organic engagement isn’t what it used to be. So, which types of content should a Small Biz prioritize to fight the lower reach? Carousel posts score the highest engagement rate (1.94%) So when you can, make your next Instagram Post a Carousel!
The struggle is real when it comes to creating content to get your brand messaging out there. But we swear it doesn't have to be. We believe in systems, organization, and strategic plans to set small biz owners up for success overnight. How are you currently creating your social media content? Is there a method to your madness or are you flying by the seat of your pants?
