You are in for a treat today! We are going to cover: how to save 5+ hours on Social Media, I’m sharing 10 Pinterest Group Boards that you can pin just about anything to & I have created an Optimizing for Pinterest Guide {it’s an exclusive}, so don’t miss getting it.

I know I’ve been asked how do you save time on social media? 100 times already this year, and the answers not simple so I thought I would have a little mini training right here on the blog! First of all I hate wasting time, so I want to be sure that this post is going to really help you. If you:

  • pay for a service and don’t use it
  • find yourself scheduling social media when you should be spending time with your family
  • don’t have a schedule or system as to when you should be doing what for social media
  • feel like you’re throwing spaghetti at a wall and hoping it sticks when you schedule your social media 🙁
Your Ultimate Guide for Optimizing for Pinterest Traffic

What you need to know:

You will need to create accounts for the following platforms. Don’t worry most are free and I don’t recommend paying for anything you don’t use… So if it’s not for you bounce 😉

What you need to do:

  • Create a blog index
  • Create your system {your colors, fonts, or tricks that you’ll associate with each platform} for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram etc.
    PS: I recommend starting with TWO platforms, manage them well and then move on to adding more if you think you can sustain them all long term!
  • Decide if you are going to use a task manager or paper calendar

Tailwind

  • Never let your queue run empty
  • Shuffle your queue
  • Take 2 minutes and use the Tribes {really it helps increase traffic}
  • Pin in batches
    • Pin ONE pin 6 – 10 times, add boards using board lists
    • Then, use the INTERVALS!!!
    • That pin will go out every day for the next “X” days.   I’ve been able to schedule ONE post out for 6 months!
      That’s 6 whole months you don’t have to worry about promoting that post on Pinterest.
  • Don’t forget to add your pin link to Asana {or write it down} to re-pin when the time comes that that pin will be running out of days 🙂 
  • Be sure to install the extention to use for quick batch re-pinning as well

Asana

  • Create a project JUST FOR SOCIAL MEDIA
  • Choose your layout
    • List – if you are a ‘list’ person
    • Board – if you are a ‘visual’ person {recommended} 
  • If you happened to pick board you will need to create columns.
    • These are mine:
      • Facebook
      • Pinterest
      • Tailwind {INTERVALS}
      • Twitter
      • LinkedIn
      • Misc.
  • Begin adding REPEATING TASKS
    Consistency is KEY when it comes to social media. So even if you are only able to do a few things for each tasks at least you are working TOWARDS your social media goals Here’s a screen shot of mine!
    How to use Asana to help you schedule social media.

Post Planner

  • With Post Planner you can {pending on the plan you pick}:
    • Add 10-50 profiles to post to automatically
    • Post between 100 & 500 posts per day
    • Have several repeating and scheduled posts for each social profile.
    • Post to more than one account at the same time
    • Create profile lists for repeated use
  • Once you’ve got your account
    • Connect it to all your social media accounts
    • Plan your posts. For example: Images at 3 pm, links at 5 pm, and so forth!!!!
    • Look for content and schedule
    • Finally shuffle your posts
  • Mark in Asana or on your paper planner when you need to come back and do more!!!
