Manage Your Social Media on Holiday

Social media is constantly engaging us and takes a lot of our time during the day. We’ve found some applications for you that will make your holidays more fun and save you time which can be spent relaxing or with your family, but at the same time will keep your followers content!

Step 1: Happy Holidays = Creative Content!

Travelling and spending time away from your studio or home office is a great chance to create sunny photos of you and your products.

    ❤ VSCO Cam

You see beautiful places, but the photos don’t look quite so good? Use VSCO cam, which has many users around the world! It not only has better filters than Instagram but also enables perfect photo editing and sharing your photos among the #vscocam community.

    ❤ Boomerang

Boomerang lets you create engaging content with just one button. The tool shoots a burst of 10 photos and turns them into a short mini-video that loops back and forth, GIF-style. Boomerang is an easy and fun way to give your audience something different than regular Instagram photos. You can either use the standalone Boomerang app, or take a Boomerang from within the Instagram app.

Step 2: Schedule and relax!

When you have your content ready it’s time to schedule it and relax! Try these two applications to save some time and enjoy your free time.

    ❤ Later

It’s an easy web app that works with iOS and Android to help you schedule posts on multiple Instagram accounts. What’s more, you can collaborate with team members and preview your Instagram feed. Since auto-posting goes against Instagram’s terms of service (and can get your account banned!), Later sends your phone a push notification when it’s time to post. It’s also a great source to organise your media library, reposting posts, and checking results.

    ❤ Tailwind

If you are addicted to Pinterest, and also want to provide new (P)inspiration during your holidays – use Tailwind. It’s an application that not only allows pin scheduling but is also an excellent analytical tool. The “Plus” account, recommended for small businesses and social media consultants/bloggers, is $9.99/month. Recently, Instagram has also been integrated here.

Our last tip: Scheduling for social media is a great time-saver but remember to supplement your feed with spontaneous, on-the-fly content, because there’s nothing better for building a true relationship than hot updates sharing breaking news or your current mood. And enjoy your holiday!
