Tackling Overwhelm When it Comes to Your Business' Social Media

Updated: Feb 20

Can you believe we're already cruising through the second month of 2024? It's like time is on fast-forward! Today I wanted to talk about something crucial that we need to prioritise this year – your social media game.

With technology always evolving and people's habits changing all the time, it's simply a non-negotiable to stay ahead of the curve. Whether it's embracing new trends or adapting to what your audience want, there are some key moves you should definitely think about making to keep your socials ahead of the game.

Let's start with asking yourself.. do I have a social media strategy?

Having a social media strategy is absolutely crucial for business owners in today's digital landscape. It's like having a roadmap that guides you through the wild world of online marketing.

With a clear strategy in place, you're not just throwing content out there and hoping for the best; you're purposefully engaging with your audience, building brand awareness, and driving meaningful interactions. Plus, having a strategy streamlines everything and makes life a whole lot easier. Instead of constantly scrambling to figure out what to post or when to post it, you've got a plan laid out, which saves a ton of time and stress.

You can batch-create content, schedule it in advance, and then sit back and watch as your social media presence flourishes—all while you focus on running your business like a boss. It's a win-win situation!

Why scheduling content days might make your life easier

Let me tell you, having a solid content strategy and scheduling content days is our secret against stress and overwhelm for us, busy business owners.

Setting aside designated time to stock up your virtual shelves with content that'll keep your audience engaged and your brand top-of-mind will give you the peace of mind that you need. By dedicating specific days to content creation, you're essentially front-loading your workload, which frees up your time and mental space for other things you'd rather do day to day in your business.

Playing catch-up or scrambling to come up with posts on the fly is so 2023! With content days planned ahead, you're surely prioritising your marketing but not letting it consume you daily.

Now, is investing in professional visuals necessary?

Investing in professional visuals for your social media presence is a smart move with multiple benefits. First off, high-quality visuals catch the eye and make your brand stand out in the crowded social media landscape. They grab attention, convey professionalism, and leave a lasting impression on your audience. Plus, professional visuals help to establish credibility and trust with potential customers, showing that you're serious about your brand and what you have to offer.

But here's where it gets really good: having a stash of professional visuals at your disposal can seriously dial down the stress and overwhelm for us busy business owners. No more last-minute panics trying to throw together a post with subpar graphics or scrambling to find something halfway decent to share. With a library of polished visuals ready to go, you can breeze through content creation, knowing that each post looks top-notch and aligns perfectly with your brand.

the power of scheduling ahead

At Blanc Studio, we are big believers in scheduling ahead and we will forever practice what we preach! Scheduling allows you to maintain a consistent online presence, which is key for engaging your audience and building brand loyalty. By planning and scheduling posts in advance, you can ensure that your content is distributed strategically, reaching your audience at optimal times for maximum impact.

Additionally, scheduling ahead frees up valuable time that you can then allocate to other aspects of your business, whether it's focusing on product development, customer service, or strategic planning. It essentially streamlines your social media efforts, making them more efficient and effective in driving business results.

We love using Planoly for ourselves and our clients at Blanc Studio. However, there are so many other fabulous apps you can use for scheduling such Buffer, Later, Hootsuite, Sprout Social and CoSchedule. I've provided a direct link for them to make your life even easier!
