Today is day 8 of my blogging course, Branding And Growth: Resurfacing And Sharing Content. Please be patient with me because I’m not so sure I understand what they’re asking but here it goes.
MY TASK: TIPS RESHARE OLDER POSTS
Today my task is to create a social media calendar that you’ll use to reshare older posts. In class we are told if we don’t know what to share here are some tips.
- Share Your Top Posts.
- Share Posts From Other Blogs You Enjoyed.
- Share Relevant Links From Your Internet Reading.
- Share Posts In Other Time Zones Other Than Yours And Those Next To You To Attract An International Audience.
- Have You Written About A Topic That Became A News Item? Share It.
- Share Your Least Popular Post.
MAKING A SOCIAL CALENDAR
So If you start seeing posts you thought you saw and/or read before it’s possible you may have. I’m not on the internet much so probably won’t see much from there. Also part of today’s task is to make a social calendar. If you don’t know how to make a social calendar here are the tips WordPress University gave.
- Friday, April 15: Tweet My “Best Of” Page.
- Monday, April 19: Tweet My Top Post From March.
- Wednesday, April 20: Tweet My Top Post From Last Week.
- Friday, April 22: Tweet My Post From Earlier This Week.
- Monday, April 25: Tweet A Great Post I Found This Week.
This explains things a little better. I appreciate all the help trying to understand this.
TOOLS FOR MAKING A SOCIAL CALENDAR
- You Can Keep Your Social Calendar In A Draft Post On Your Site.
- Create A Calendar Using An App Such As Word For Windows Or Pages If You Use Mac.
- Simplenote Is A Great App That Allows You To Take Notes From Anywhere (On Your Phone, Tablet And Laptop) So It’s Great For Capturing That Idea You Have For Your Social Media Calendar Whenever Inspiration Strikes.
- If You Prefer The Analog Approach, Jot Down Your Calendar Using A Pen Or Pencil In A Notebook.
APPS THAT CAN HELP YOU SCHEDULE YOUR REPROMOTION
- Buffer Is A Great Tool That Allows You To Schedule Posts On Social Media In Advance.
- CoSchedule Is A WordPress Plugin That Allows You To Set Up A Sharing Schedule For Each Individual Post. Note That CoSchedule Works Only With Self-Hosted WordPress Sites.
I don’t know if some of you use a social calendar or not. However, according to WordPress it helps. If any of you have suggestions I will take them under consideration.
