As a blogger who strives to create beautiful content, I never struggle with the lack of ideas and content production – this is what I enjoy the most about it actually: bringing ideas to life, express myself and creating something meaningful and helpful. As you know my blog is a green and ethical lifestyle blog and it’s a hot topic too: there’s plenty of source out there to talk and write about but there’s the competition is also big.
On one had this is truly great – because that’s what all eco bloggers want: more and more people to talk about the environmental issues and hopefully changing minds and habits. On the other hand we need to find ways to stand out with our content and make sure it’s getting noticed.
So two things are very important for this: creating catchy content and getting organised. The first is a no brainer but creating good content takes a lot of time and effort. And since time is crucial and I prefer to spend it on content creation, I have to get really organised on how am I going to get it out so people can see it. Posting content to social media and engaging with my followers is a totally different job I need to master – being a good writer and photographer is not enough. I’ve used a few social media marketing tools already but I always missed them being more integrated.
Social media outlets play just as an important role in marketing my content like a good content itself. Fact. Like it or not. If I don’t do it properly, I lose out. With all the work running the blog, this is the most tedious for me. I need to plan ahead and schedule otherwise I’d lose hours just to try to keep up.
ContentCal is a new tool that helps you to get these sorted under one roof – and more. Simple to use, visual tool with custom approvals for content creation and publishing. It helps to plan, create, and craft the content in advance, ready to be published automatically at my chosen time and date. This saves a lot of time because it’s automated.
It helps with:
- a social media scheduler
- creating a visual calendar for yourself
- integrating your favourite tools
- customising with planning-focused, time-saving features
- extending sharing capabilities
- checking the performance with analytics
- faster responses connecting all my social outlets to one message inbox
These are the ones I found the most useful – but there are others as well. If you have a remote team, you can collaborate with. them through the platform.
ContentCal integrates with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Using our Zapier integration, we can also publish to other locations such as Pinterest, Google Spreadsheets, Airtable, and more.
Take a free, 2-week trial and watch the walk through videos to learn how to use the different tools. It’s simple and easy.
For me, one user profile with one calendar and 4 social platforms (that’s how many I use anyway) costs only $17!
