One of the things I want to focus on in this new year is my social media presence. I don't count stats. I don't care how many followers I have - I care that my content is relevant and presented well.....so that it will be shared. With the advent of hashtags, any post you make is searchable - as long as you tag it well!! I will say, I'm no social media maven....I'm average at best. But I know that in order to be seen you have to be active.

I plan on trying to post to each platform uniquely and to share quality content on each platform as well as promote my own endeavors. I use Networked Blogs to post to my Facebook page & Twitter every time a blog post goes live. I also use the integrated platforms in Instagram to post to Twitter & Facebook each time I post a photo. Instagram is my favorite social media platform! I want to use HootSuite more to schedule tweets and Facebook posts of not only old blog content but also unique content and content that followers might like.
In order to track my social media endeavors, I've implemented a checklist at the bottom of my daily pages but I think specific tracking boxes to use in weekly spreads may help too. So I wanted to share them with you today!!
These are free PDF downloads - and if you're savvy, they also fit with in the margins of a Silhouette document so you can add cutlines if you wish. Please remember that these are free for personal use and can not be sold, redistributed, or shared via file sharing. If you wish to direct someone to these printables, please direct them to this blog post.
The first PDF has 12 multi colored stickers designed to fit in the your side bar measuring 1.5 inches wide. They fit perfectly in the ECLP side bar or the MAMBI Happy Planner sidebar (as pictured above). This is a weekly tracker labeled Monday through Sunday with checkboxes for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The second PDF has an assortment of smaller boxes with a place to write your post name and then mark of where that post has been shared. These boxes feature a place to check off Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Blog/RSS, and YouTube. Each box is also 1.5 inches wide so you can stack them in your sidebar or put them in the daily squares. I plan on using these to mark off either a blog post or YouTube video that I will share. These will also fit in the week on four page spread for personal size planners here in my shop. (Don't forget to shop through Ebates on Etsy to get a little cash back!)
Do you have a social media plan for this year? Let me know! I'm looking for ideas too!
