Happy Thursday ladies!!! I am SO excited to bring you the first#techieThursday. Each Thursday, I am going to bring you a new tech topic that can help you with your business. Today, we are chatting about pre-scheduling sites. A great way to run your social media content is to plan ahead (I like to use Sundays for this), shoot the images I need, then pre-schedule my posts for the week. But what sites do you use? It really depends on what you are using to work your business. DON'T spread yourself too thin with too many social media sites, find one or two you can really rock and start there. Here are a few suggestions:
Hootsuite: you can monitor and post from various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, and Linkedin). Liz's take - not as user friendly for pre-scheduling beginners and can cause frustration, but just takes practice. This is one of the pest places to search available # and # convos over multiple platforms.
Buffer: You can attach a photo, video or animated GIF to any of your posts. Second, since we shorten your links for you, we are able to provide more analytics than if you just were to post to Twitter or Facebook directly. Works with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, and Pinterest. Liz take - easy site to work with, but if you are primarily a visual business poster, it leaves out the most important site..instagram.
PostCron: Can post to multiple events, groups, and personal/business page in Facebook. Also allows for LinkedIn, and Google+. Liz take - SUPER easy to work with. You have to be careful because it defaults to your primary page you set. If you are new to pre-scheduling, this may be the one to go with because of the functionality.
ScheduGram: While there are a lot pre-schedulers for instagram, there are no free ones that will post for you. This one included. But out of the all the ones I have researched. Liz take - This is the best one of the ones I have researched. You can edit, schedule, and post from this site and you don't have to do it from your phone. You can also run multiple IG accounts from this platform.

Ok so let's talk about in person pop ups and filling those calendars!!! POPPING UP is sooooo important whether you are brand new or just need to refresh your biz. People want to see the jewels in person, touch and feel them. So let's talk...... I want to talk about booking into and thru 2016!!!! YES I am talking about booking pop ups into January!!! I know that may seem crazy BUT it is so beneficial to book months and months ahead of time! The next 4 months are sooooooo critical for your biz!! The holidays are our biggest months and a successful January can mean major moves for you as a merchandiser. We have a big sale every January and people want to feel good about themselves in the new year. They diet, they have makeovers, they change their wardrobe etc......So we need to capitalize on this!! Fall and the holidays can be the best times to pop up...so many FUN themes we can tackle to entice pop up attendance. Here are a few to get you thinking.....
*Halloween themed pop up
*Fall Mommy and Me craft pop up
*Witches Night Out pop up
*Pies and Pretties~ Pie swap pop up, everyone brings a pie and we all dig in
*Football co-ed pop up (pop up while the men are glued to the TV)
*Smores/Campfire pop up
*Couples Night pop up
*Pumpkin Carving pop up
*Bake Sale pop up, donate food items to local shelter after
*Plaid and hoodies pop up, have everyone wear their FAV plaid top or hoodie and promise to DAZZLE them with your demo on how to dress them up with a statement necklace and so on
*Oktoberfest beer tasting pop up
*Mystery Host masquerade pop up….have it themed as a masquerade and have masks for props for the attendees…..every order of $50 increment gets an entry and at end of pop up when you have all the orders in you draw a lucky winner for all the host credits
*January New Year makeover pop ups
*Trade in your old clothes Pop Up...donate everything collected to womens shelter in the area and have the ladies shop your jewels!!
*Winter wonderland themed pop
*Little Black Dress pop up
I have attached some blank calendars thru January!! I HIGHLY suggest booking at least 3 pop ups for October and November each, maximize holiday shoppers and book at least 2 for January NOW!!! Reach out to past hosts to host in January and get her onboard to host a FUN event!!!! I promise IF you think of your business into the future and take the time to really preplan and book ahead, this will be so amazing for your success!!!!
