Batching 101:

  1. Make a list of what you could batch [IDEAS: list of quotes to use in graphics, catalogue of stock photos that are on-brand, blog posts, social media post captions, recording video tutorials, editing podcast episodes, Pinterest graphics in Canva, scheduling content, etc.)
  2. Schedule your batch day & put it on your calendar
  3. Prep what you will need before you start batching (i.e. hashtag holiday calendar, your goals for the quarter, sign up for a free Canva account, content themes, a plan etc.)
how it works

Hashtags can be a great way to boost your visibility. When planning your content, you can take a look at trending hashtags and social media holidays coming up and think of ways to participate.

PRO TIP #1: Make sure the hashtag or hashtag holiday is relevant to your business. If it’s unclear or more of a “get to know me” type post, be sure to make the connection for your audience so they don’t wonder.

PRO TIP #2: Before you jump on a trending hashtag or other social media trend, be sure to do your research. Not all hashtags are good for your brand. And some hashtags come with certain etiquette guidelines you should follow. Do a quick Google search or use Rite Tag or HashAtIt.com to get more information about specific hashtags.
