Blogging ain’t easy! So we decided to have a light weight tweet chat training on Twitter about blogging and social media hacks that make your life easier. What? You missed it? Now you know we take care of you! Here is your recap.
First things first. You need a good social media scheduler in your life. The standard that most people swear by is good old Hootsuite. Buffer is usually next in line.
Next, don’t be afraid to repurpose your content. If you are on Periscope, upload those videos to YouTube. Have a popular blog post? Chop that post into tweets.
You won’t always have your laptop handy. Use voice typing to jot down ideas on your phone or tablet. Trust us, that is a time saver.
Hashtags can be your life’s blood on social media. One of our go to tools for finding new hashtags is Hastagify. All you have to do is enter your main hashtag, and it will give you up to ten other hashtags that are similar.
Another one of our favorite tools is IFTTT. Need your post on multiple platforms at once. Do have to set up “recipes” telling your apps what to do. For example, if you want what you post on Instagram to go to your Facebook page and Twitter when you use a specific hashtag, then your recipe would set up that recipe. Most recipes you would probably use have already been made, so you would just search based on which social media platforms you want to use (i.e. Instagram and Facebook).
Well that’s all for now. Just click the slideshow below for more tips and tricks in this blogging game.
