“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” Benjamin Franklin
While spending 8 hours talking about social media may not sound fun to you, I can say that it is. Once a month, I get to lead the SCW Social Media Certification, where I show fitness professionals tips, tricks, and methods to creating meaningful connections and communities on social media. Last Friday was one of those events and I had a TOTAL.BLAST with the attendees. Which, by the way, we missed you…
In case you weren’t there or need a recap, here are my 5 big take-aways from the course.
1. Know Your Lane
Before you start creating posts, sit down and have a real honest brainstorming session with yourself. What are your areas of expertise? Now, be specific! Pick 5 buckets where you feel knowledgeable and have your social media presence focus around those topics.
2. Fish Where Your Fish Are
Not every social media platform is created equally – especially in demographics! Use the platforms your target client demographic members are using, even if it is not your personally preferred platform.
3. Apps & Software
If you aren’t already using an app or software to create your content, what are you waiting for? Amazing programs like Canva, OVER, and PicPostPlay will make your life easier. Trust me.
4. Use Templates
Using the plug & play templates on the above-mentioned apps is always quicker and easier than creating content from scratch. Decide on branding basics like colors and fonts then use templates to your advantage.
5. Be a Planner
Don’t try to create, craft, and post all in one swoop. Pre-plan your content, captions, and hashtags. Be strategic so that each post speaks to your message & brand.
