Coming back to the title of this blog post – time saving

What might seem as more work, needing to insert your posts into a 3rd party app, is actually a huge time saver!

The trick is to collect your posts into a calendar. Slack, TrelloAsana and Flow are only a few of the great teamwork and collaboration apps out there, where you can collect your posts and reorder them (Even tho a simple excel sheet could do the trick).

Peg Fitzpatrick actually wrote an awesome article about how to use Trello for social media management.

Collecting and curating your social media posts in a calendar will help you save interesting posts you stumble upon quickly and easily, in a orderly fashion. Which is going to be a huge help in your next step: Inserting the posts into your favorite scheduling app.

From there you can basically go on vacation for the whole programmed period, since the internet is going to do the rest of the work for you.

TL;DR

  1. Use content exploring websites and apps (i.e. DrumUp) for content curation.
  2. Insert the best content into a calendar.
  3. Transfer the posts from the calendar into a scheduling app.
  4. Take a vacation (or just go on with your life, running your business).
