Events & Promotions

Time-sensitive events and sales are the cornerstone of your social posting. Ideally, you’ll want to plan these posts well in advance, so you have time to:

  1. Create graphics (My favourite tools for this are WordSwag for iPad, PicMonkey, and Canva)
  2. Research hashtags
  3. Plan related content (blog posts, podcasts, etc)

This will help with branding, but more importantly, it will ensure you always know exactly what to write about, what videos to record, and what content to share.

Using a monthly calendar, map out your upcoming events and offers as far in advance as possible, then assign and organize the necessary elements.

In the coming days, I’ll provide more information and resources to help you fill in the gaps.

What’s more important than Google when it comes to driving traffic to your website, sales pages, and affiliate offers?

If you said social media, you’re right.

With billions of loyal users, social media sites like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram are now credited with more than 30% of all website traffic, according to a study by Shareaholic.

Clearly, we all need to pay attention to social media marketing, but if you’ve ever tried to put the power of social media to work for your business you may not have seen the results you wanted. Without a plan, it’s easy to flounder around, waste a lot of time, and not really achieve anything.

A good social media plan incorporates a mix of all the following elements:

  • Interesting and compelling content you create (your blog, videos, podcasts, etc)
  • Older content that still has value to your visitors (and you)
  • Other people’s content
  • Inspirational messages and quotes
  • Funny quotes and images
  • Events and offers
  • Personal stories

I will provide information and an assignment or challenge, each day Monday through Friday, for two weeks. You will have the opportunity to share ideas, ask questions, and learn along with others in a private Facebook Group as well as here on my website.
