Keep the Feed Going!

So we all know that keeping our names in the forefront of the consumers mind is extremely important to return buyers, and leads.

A lot of you have Facebook pages for your businesses, and previously I discussed the promoted post, which can become costly. However, you should also know about the scheduled post! Imagine this, you have worked and slaved for weeks, months, years to get the likes you have on your page. You are working to keep your customers interested in your work and looking at the new things you are producing.

What happens when your customers are worldwide, in different time zones, and they don't see your items in their news feed because you are asleep and not on Facebook?!


Enter the scheduled post! 

When you go to enter a new status update you have a little clock icon in the bottom left of the status dialog box.
See the pretty little clock?
 You can click on that and it will open individual select boxes, one at a time, for the Year, Month, Day, Hour, and Minute. I have all of them open below.

You can use these to schedule posts for maybe once every 2-3 hours, or whatever works best for you. That way the more people following you the more people will see your stuff! This keeps your items, posts, or whatever you are looking for in the main viewing window more frequently for your customers.

There are so many different social media uses, and according to Etsy they can be a BIG help in pushing your items in the marketplace. Sometimes though we may not know how to use them.

Good Luck Team Members, and keep up the good work!
