Posting 6-9 times a day

16 replies
How's this even possible, to be frank? I see pages posting viral images, memes, content etc at all hours of the day. It's like a never ending stream, and of course it does really well for growing their audience. The thing is...If I wanted to post at this frequency...

I'd barely have time to collect all the content necessary.

Do you guys have any strategies to produce tons of content at all times? How much time does it take you to curate that content?

I've had a few people recommend posting at this frequency as a great way to grow their audience.

    Are you serious? Because the entire world is NOT on the same time zone. While it may be 3am where you are its 3pm on the other side of the world.

    Also you can get a "Bot" which is a program that will make your posts for you as many as you would like, it will also comment on other similar photos and follow other accounts in your niche.

    You can produce tons of content by converting it from one form to another

    Take a viral video and turn it into a viral pic or a story

    Turn a story and turn it into a video

    I created a posting schedule that works for my business.

    I am a boudoir photographer, so I started by thinking of themes that work for my genre (transformation tuesday, wardrobe wednesday, throwback thursday for starters) then added in other things such as my referral program, upcoming promos, recent blog post, Memes, past reviews, behind the scenes images, local business shout outs, repurposing old content, etc.

    Then I created a schedule from those posts. I only do 3-5 (usually schedule 4 for each day and then have an occasional "spur of the moment" post)

    So it looks something like this:
    • MONDAY
    o Next months Promo
    o Meme or Inspirational Quote
    o Referral Program
    o Newsletter Signup

    • TUESDAY
    o Number of dates left
    o Blog Post or Video
    o Transformation Tuesday/Tushie Tuesday
    o Ask for Review

    • WEDNESDAY
    o Wardrobe Wednesday
    o Client Review
    o Behind the scenes
    o Next months promo


    • THURSDAY
    o Answer a FAQ
    o Newsletter Signup
    o Throwback Thursday
    o Number of dates left

    • FRIDAY
    o Ask for Review
    o Local business shoutout
    o Ask a question or for suggestions
    o Blog post

    • SATURDAY
    o Repurpose old content
    o Newsletter signup
    o Client Review

    • SUNDAY
    o Infographic
    o Link to Something
    o Behind the scenes


    I did something similar for Instagram based on keeping my feed visually appealing

      I currently schedule directly through Facebook's scheduling feature, but I'm planning to start learning how to utilize HootSuite because I can also schedule posts for my VIP group through that, which will save me more time.

      I spend less than 3 hours per week on scheduling posts for my social media...

        My basic plan and recommendation is to alternate a plain photo with a call to action, quote or meme (something with text). This will keep your feed cohesive and organized. You’ll naturally create a pattern of posts that are pleasing to the eye.

        I recommend using http://www.later.com to schedule your posts. If you load the images into your dashboard in the order that you plan to post them in your feed, you can see how the pattern will emerge and you can decide if it will be aesthetically pleasing enough or if you need to change things.

        Later.com allows you to schedule 30 posts per month using the free plan, which is what I stick with. I schedule one post per day for the month. I usually sit down once a week and schedule a week worth of posts at one time so that I can plan the way they’ll look in my feed.

        Now, later.com will NOT automatically post these to Instagram for you, that goes against the Instagram terms of use. You will get a notification on your phone or mobile device (you need to install the later.com app for this) when it’s time for your scheduled post to go live. They send you the image AND the caption you created so you simply need to click a button and paste the caption into the box and hit publish. Super easy, only takes about 20 seconds of your time and then you can go back to whatever you were already doing!

    Scheduling my friend that can help you spend few hours a week and our post is ready to post for entire week or month.

    Now all you have to focus on advertising and other possible things to populate visitors to your page or post.

      You should check out facebook api for pages! I created a bot using .net c# and it can be as dumb as you want or as smart as you need it to be, frankly! Combine that with some google api, you can create posts that are 100% human-like on any particular subject.

    For creating massive content fast you may want to use videos or PLR. If you use PLR make sure you make it unique and brand it to yourself. For Videos you would use Covert Theme in Wordpress, and you can use any videos for content. This includes Youtube videos. They don't have to be yours. I would sugget if you grab one that promotes something that you get an affiliate link for that product and put it on your video blog.

    I couldn't do it without my VA. She's amazing and does everything from creating the posts to scheduling them out.

    That being said, we couldn't do it without tools like hootsuite and tailwind.

    Right now, she creates the content, schedules it in hootsuite, and then it posts across all of our accounts except for instagram. With instagram you have to manually post so it notifies us when we need to post and it's just a few buttons to push.

  • It's possible to post that often if you have scheduling software. I use MeetEdgar because it allows me to create a library of post. I just need to categorize my post, set a schedule per category, and that's it. That gives me time to create more content and have the evergreen content reported when needed.

    Very good question. The number of posts per day completely depends on the social network and audiences for your business.

    If it's LinkedIn or Facebook, a few times a day will be good enough however, Twitter or Instagram people post at least one per time zone you target.

    Of course use a calendar and a scheduling product to achieve this.
