How To Plan Your Social Media Posts

This blog post is day 6 of my training entitled How To Set Up Your Online Business and Get It Running in 7 Days. Learn how to create a social media content plan.

It is imperative to create a social media content plan and execute that plan on a daily basis. Make a list of 36 social media post ideas. For the next 90 days, challenge yourself to use your list and create one post per day. Then share that post 3 times per day on at least 3 separate social media websites. 

The goal here is to build rapport with your audience  Your audience is more likely to purchase products and services via your affiliate links if they know, like, and trust you.

This is very important so, let me repeat the process again.

  • Each day create one social media post and post it on your social media accounts.
  • Post the same post morning, mid-day, and evening.
  • This gives you an advantage, making it more likely that a larger share of your audience will see your post.

Promote your weekly blog post

One day per week make an announcement to your audience that you have published a new blog post and share it in the morning, mid-day, and evening on all your social media platforms
