Okay, I know I am late to the game here and so many other people have been using Planoly for years, but I honestly didn’t think I really needed to schedule my social media posts- because I could just pop on and post each day. But, as I’m planning for maternity leave, I wanted to make sure that my business accounts were still being active and I wasn’t having to think about it- because having a newborn takes up all the brainpower. But oh my goodness am I kicking myself now for how long it took me to try this!
I had no idea the time I was spending each day trying to pause my workflow to pick out a photo and a caption and post it to Instagram. And then, it’s just WAY too easy to get lost in scrolling or checking out a story or two, which we all know turns into 15. But with Planoly, I can sit down and batch schedule a bunch of posts at one time and not have to think about it any more. It takes me less than an hour on Planoly now to schedule a full month of posts so I can focus on my important tasks during my office hours instead of breaking up my day and spending about 30 minutes or more of my office hour time to post something.
So, maybe you’re like me and dragging your feet on trying out something else new- but trust me with this- you need to at least try it! It’s super user friendly, you can answer comments within the app, see it planned out on the calendar, and even see the number of likes and comments you get on each post at a quick glance so you’re able to know what posts get more engagements than the others.
Do you use Planoly or something that helps you get so much time back??
