If you're a small business owner overwhelmed by the world of social media, storytellit is the free tool you've been looking for. storytellit connects all of your social accounts and gives you content to post to kickstart your social media marketing.
While storytellit is for just about anyone, there are a few things you'll want to adjust to make sure it's perfect for you and your business. Consider this a cheat-sheet for making storytellit your personalized social media marketing tool.
1. Pick Your Business Type
Sharing content that's not relevant to your audience won't get you much engagement. People follow you because they want to see posts about your industry. Storytellit has different options to cater to your profession. If yours isn't available yet—don't worry. More options are quickly becoming available.
2. Set Your Schedule
How often do people want to hear from you on social media? There's no right or wrong answer to this question. Generally posting once a day or every other day is good practice, but if weekly or several times a day fits your audience better make sure you click that option. Try a few different settings out and see what gets you the most engagement.
3. Choose Your Accounts
After linking your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Tumblr accounts to storytellit, you can choose which ones you might want to post to and which ones you never want to post to on the settings page. Then, when you go to schedule a post, you can pick and choose from those you might want to post to. This way you can make sure that you'll never send a post to the wrong place again.
4. Localize Your Prompts
Instead of generic pre-made posts, storytellit gives you idea prompts with fill-in-the-blank sections to fill out. The more you use these and add details relevant to your community, the more personable your social accounts will be.
To get even more personal, try adding extra information into the prompts. For instance, if the prompt says “______ always makes me smile!”, instead of filling the prompt with “Janice” say “Janice our friendly receptionist who works in our office on Main Street”.
5. Upload Your Photos
Photos of your business, employees, and customers are the most exciting things you can post to you social media channels. Storytellit lets you create and schedule your own posts from scratch. Take advantage of this by using it to upload photos you took and write about them.
