Social Neworking in the School Holidays

It's that time again!

Our gorgeous kids are off school for the Summer and as wonderful as it is to have them close to us it can make running your business a lot more challenging.

Those peaceful days where you could hear yourself think have gone until September and your stress levels are considerably higher.

So what can you do to make things a bit easier?

Schedule your social networking in advance. (Don't forget to check for messages and comments though).

  • Buffer and Post Planner (which used to have a free option but I'm not sure it still does) cover a variety of platforms, Facebook, Twitter etc.
  • Facebook offers it's own scheduling tool which is useful as you can set up page tags but do keep an eye on it as I've known it to miss posts at times. 
  • Tweetdeck is a useful tool for scheduling tweets and is great if you have multiple accounts. 
  • You can schedule your blog posts on blogger to publish whenever you want. 
I keep a diary of my scheduled posts so that I can keep track of them and this is also handy for going back over and adding in stats so that you can see which were the most successful.

So that takes care of online marketing. Now actually creating our products - playdates, after bedtime, joint crafting exercises. I think that may need a post all to itself. :)

What tips do you have for juggling family/working time?
