Hello everyone this is a 6 part series! The 5 days of the work week and the weekend!
I’m going to share my social media schedule for each day hopefully to give you ideas when you’re stuck!
Today’s is Wednesday!
Now that it’s Wednesday evening I do actually have some of the posts I wrote today to show you as examples!
Wednesday’s Theme – Reviews, Features And Bragging Rights
Instagram: Silly quote or cheerful message. (It is humpday!) (I scoured the internet this morning for a funny post and this is all I laughed at! I think it’s time to save one the night before when I’m more awake haha. I didn’t hashtag this post because I wanted it to be seen by just my followers as it doesn’t relate to my brand.
Facebook: “Morning routine” reach out to those going through the work/school week.
Twitter: Product share and coupon code reminder
I forgot to add the coupon but instead I found out that #NationalBestFriendsDay and #WorldOceansDay was trending, I shared this with the facebook groups I’m admin of and retweeted others in the group using these hashtags throughout the day 🙂
Instagram: New supplies that have come in this week. (I didn’t do this in the end because I’d just finished a mammoth order for my other shop and was feeling pretty proud of it! 🙂 This is why these posts are handy to have as a guide UNLESS something bigger comes up!)
Shop Update : Create an image with a customer’s review and photo, tag product.
I decided to carry on with the friendship theme throughout the day as it’s a great marketing opportunity for my pizza products!
I made this review image on Canva.
I don’t have time for a full tutorial right now but the basic way I made this is:
- Go to www.canva.com
- Pick their “social media” size template
- Upload your product image and use it for a background
- Go to their “elements” on the left, select the square and drag it into a rectangle along the top or bottom of your photo. Click it and change colour to white and set the transparency so you can still see your image through it.
- Add the star shapes and click them to change their colour to gold
- Add text with the customers name and review (it is shown publically on Etsy once they review)
- Download as an image for web.
- Email it to yourself and save it on your phone so you can use it as an Etsy Shop Update
Twitter: Tweet Shop Update
Pinterest: Post Shop Update to reviews board.
Instagram: Share a different review.
Facebook: Add 3 new reviews to “reviews” album
Shop Update: Customer’s photo share/product that’s been featured by a blog/popular product
Something awesome happened today – I got featured by Buzzfeed again! You can see the post here. I decided to mention that in my shop update with the featured product.
Pinterest: Post shop update to relevant board – I posted this one to my “Here There Be Dragons Board”
Twitter: Share customer photo or review.
Thanks to Jenny at CraftyMillerJM for this lovely picture! 😀
JUST BEFORE BED:
Photo relevant to theme of the day, quote or repost of someone else’s work.
EXTRA IF I HAVE TIME (or feel like it):
–Take photos throughout the day of anything I think my followers might be interested in. New supplies arriving, something glinting in the sun, products I’m making, products that go together etc. It’s great to have backup images for future posts.
— I use my pinterest/instagram/twitter account purely for business (I have personal accounts seperately) so if I have time I follow 100 relevant people on each platform to encourage them to follow me back. (to see more about “relevant people” please see the “Growing Your Instagram Account” blog post in the pinned post)
— I go through my Instagram feed and look for silly memes, quotes, relatable content and “like” them. I can then in future use the “repost” app and share (and credit) the original poster. Because I’m following my target market, their humour, quotes and interests are relatable to my other followers and generate attention.
— I go on the “popular” Pinterest category and look for pins that are doing really well (1k+ pins) and if they fit in with any of my boards I’ll pin those. It makes my pinterest more appealing to new followers.
If you would like to follow me on any of my social media platforms to have a nose at these updates as they happen they are here:
