Socially Shaw is a Social Media Agency supporting small businesses & charities with their social media marketing.
Operating as usual
Are you giving yourself time each week or month to plan your content?
I haven't always but I now create my content every week for two hours. One hour on planning and one hour on creating and scheduling.
How do you plan your content?
Are you using a scheduler for posting your charity's content?
If so which one? I love Agorapulse and It makes my job more streamlined.
The reports are excellent, the inbox and listening tools saves so much time because you don't need to keep coming in and out of each platform.
They now have the Canva design tool integrated (and everyone loves Canva). Plus, you can analyse what your competitors in your field are doing.
Plus charities can apply for a reduced price so remember to ask. To trial Agorapulse visit the link https://www.agorapulse.com/?via=kate90
What scheduler do you use?

Do you feel blue in January?
I don't mind the winter months but I do prefer feeling warm.
So I like to daydream about the spring and summertime 🌞
How do you pick yourself up?
Our CF family and friends have been super busy wearing yellow and taking today in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust's .

I hope you have a wonderful weekend everyone 💛
Good morning all, I am doing some research and I would love to know...
What makes a great Facebook Group? Think about the groups you are part of and why you visit them regularly.
Here are just a few things to help you think about that but add your own as well. It would really help me so thanks in advance 😀
Do you stay (in groups) because of the topic?
Do you stay because you like the other members?
What makes a great Facebook Group host?
What do you hate about Facebook Group groups?
How often do you actively engage in a group? And why?
Can you give me examples of some brilliant groups you are a member of and why you are a member of that group?
What keywords make you think of the positive groups you are a member of i.e. community/trust/likeminded/care/relationship/great products/services and any others you can think of.
Instagram has reported that they are introducing new features and resources to support parents and teens who use the platform.
They have developed new parent guides to complement the current parent guides available currently.
They want to make the platform safe for teenagers so that they can use it to "strengthen connections, practice social skills and find supportive communities".
What do your teenagers use Instagram for?

I hope you're getting lots of love and appreciation from your loved ones today 😊

🎧Do you listen to the radio? Or Podcasts?🎧
Here are 3 of my absolute favourite social media for business podcasts to sink your ears into.
I had wanted to count them down like Top Of The Pops but they're all number one in my eyes/ears 🤩
🎧 The Janet Murray Show: Janet Murray is the queen of content👑. A former journalist, Janet lives and breathes copy, she is an expert in sales, audience building and content strategy and planning. Her Reels are fantastic and she has designed in my opinion, the best Social Media Diary & Planner. You can find my affiliate link in my bio over on Instagram.
I love Janet's podcast because it is informative and full of value and 100s of fantastic ideas for anyone using social media for their business. Janet also sends daily emails and has tons of courses to meet everyone's needs. I'm currently taking part in which I'm really enjoying.
🎧 Andrew and Pete's Atomicast: Andrew and Pete have been best buds since they met in University where they studied marketing. They now have an amazing membership specifically aimed at small business owners and hold an annual event called ATOMICON (which I'm looking forward to attending in November). You can now access this members only podcast by clicking the link in their bio and trialling their membership for just £1!! It's well worth a listen. If you would like to know more subscribe to their YouTube channel.
🎧 Business Anchors Podcast ⚓ by brothers Dan Knowlton and Lloyd Knowlton founders of Knowlton Marketing. The podcast is very informative, funny and full of stories about the marketing lessons they have learned, the cringey mistakes they have made and of course their successes both personally and while working in digital marketing. It's like fun house- because It's a whole lot of fun with prizes to be won. Yes really. AND I think it has one of the best theme tunes ever. Tune in and enjoy. You can also find them on YouTube.
Which podcast would you recommend? Save this post and share it with your small business friends and colleagues. They'll thank you for it.
