In this blog I want to address the problem I hear from so many of you about getting overwhelmed with your social media content. A couple of questions that come up a lot are, which platforms should I use and what should I write about? Here are my 4 Top Tips on how to beat overwhelm when creating social media content without it sending your head into a spin. 🤯
𝟭: Concentrate on one social media platform at a time
If you’re struggling to write content then trying to post on numerous platforms is just going to send you into overwhelm. Choose the platform that you think your ideal client is most likely to be on and concentrate on doing that one platform well. Once you feel confident open it up to another platform. One step at a time!
𝟮: Plan your content.
I know some of you will shudder at this thought but by creating space in your diary every week and planning what you are going to talk about will be a massive timesaver. I would suggest to plan at least a week of your content in advance, a month if you can. This does not mean you have to have all your posts written out with images attached, this simply means you plan a topic each time you post so you know in advance what you’re going to talk about and not wake up stressed.
𝟯: Keep it simple.
Your posts don’t have to be perfect every single time, my motto is done is better than perfect. If your content is varied then this will help with the flow of your content. A simple post could be a question, a poll, a video of you making something or behind the scenes shot. Make it easy.
If you’re struggling to write your content, put you pen/laptop down, step away, go for a walk or make a coffee and come back to it later. 🚶♀️☕️
If you need some inspiration try reading a book on your niche or watch a video tutorial on how to make something; it just has to be something that inspires you. You’ll be amazed on the impact it has on you to get those creative juices flowing.
My 4 simple tips are to start by posting on only one social media platform at a time and do that well, plan your content in advance to reduce stress, keep it simple and breathe.
