Posting to social media doesn’t have to be a chore and is one of the most effective ways that you’re able to market your brand to the world without needing to spend a ton of advertising money to get your name in front of other people. On a daily basis, it is recommended that small businesses post to social media over 10 times per day, which can add up!

Social media posts using images have been proven to catch attention over text posts, and accompanying text with images and links are high drivers of engagement. Worried about the time it takes to engage regularly on social media? Using scheduling tools, both built into these websites and externally, you can spend some time preparing these posts in advance and letting them automatically post on your behalf- keeping users engaged on social media but also giving you the precious time needed to run your brand.
