Do you want to learn how to save time as a TPT seller? Of course, you do! Sometimes it feels like there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
When it comes to marketing TPT products, there is SO much to do. Facebook posts, Instagram posts, and Pinterest pins can take up so many hours in your week.
Don’t worry, there is a way to save time and streamline your marketing. The best part? By saving time, you’ll also be making more money.
Yep, you read that right. Just think about how many hours you will be saving if you’re not manually pinning pins or sharing Facebook posts. If you can use that time to create TPT products, you’ll be doing something that makes you more money!
So, what is the magical solution?
There are two ways that you can schedule. One is the free option. This includes scheduling pins using the in-built Pinterest scheduler. You can also schedule social media content (Instagram and Facebook posts) using the Facebook scheduler.
The good news is that it’s free! I can often pin a few weeks’ worth of content quite easily. I can schedule out a month of Facebook posts for free!
However, paying for a scheduler can make your life even easier.
For example, there is a limit on how many pins you can schedule on the in-built Pinterest scheduler. Whereas, if you use a scheduler like Tailwind, you can pin for the next six months if you wish!
Programs like Tailwind also provide optimum times to pin, and they have features like tribes or smart loop. Best of all, you can upload one pin and schedule it to lots of different boards in one go. Whereas on the Pinterest scheduler, you can only schedule to one board.
WHAT APPS ARE THERE?
When it comes to social media like Facebook or Instagram, there are countless scheduling apps.
Hootsuite, Buffer, Later, Meet Edgar, and Smarter Queue are popular choices. I suggest you try the free trials and see if you like them!
Alternatively, you can schedule within the social media platforms. I often schedule my Facebook business page posts using the free in-built Facebook scheduler.
Scheduling is a great time saving marketing hack. But it does go hand in hand with batching.
Batching is where you create a lot of content in one sitting (for example, create 10 Instagram posts or pins at once). If you are able to set aside some time to batch your content and then schedule it, you can sit back and relax for the rest of the month!
