    REPLAY: 5 Ways to Batch Content for Your Social Media Channels

    REPLAY: 5 Ways to Batch Content for Your Social Media Channels

    Today we’re replaying episode 156 to reshare tips on batching content for your blog, Instagram, and other social media channels. I'm (Emma) is currently on vacation in Europe so I'm replaying some of my favorite episodes!

    If you’re balancing content creation with a side hustle, school, or full-time job, and want to be able to share new content on a regular basis, this episode is for you.

    What does it mean to batch content?
    Batching is referred to as “completing a small set of tasks in a period of time”. In blogging, we batch content: which is photos, written content like captions, blog posts, and podcast outlines, to be more efficient with our time. 

    Tip 1: Spend one hour at the beginning of the week writing Instagram captions for that week.

    Tip #2: Plan your feed out at the beginning of the week.
    There are great tools out there like Planoly or Unum to help you plan your Instagram feed. 
    The benefits of planning your feed out ahead of time:
    ·      You aren’t scrambling that day to find a photo to post.
    ·      You know that the photo is going to look nice/cohesive with your feed before you post it.
    ·      You’ll be less stressed knowing what photos are coming up next to be published.

    REPLAY: Don't let perfection paralyze your creative passions

    REPLAY: Don't let perfection paralyze your creative passions

    This episode originally aired in March 2022. We're replaying this to remind you to not let perfection paralyze your passions.

    We  want to remind you that experience builds confidence. 
     And if you don’t allow yourself to step out of your comfort zone, to learn how to create because you’re focused on “perfection”, you don’t allow yourself to grow as a creator. You have to try new things to allow yourself to grow. 
    Let go on perfectionism in 2023.

Energetic, Inspiring, & Incredibly Valuable

I’ve followed Emma and Maddy for years, and have enjoyed following their journey from self-made content creators to experts in the industry. I love that I can turn on any episode and find so much value, paired with relatable scenarios and experiences.

Love this podcast 🫶🏼

As an upcoming content creator I’ve been listening to these girls all year! They have so much knowledge about content, pitching, batching, etc. They encourage me and inspire me to keep going even on the days I feel super discouraged and drained. Thank you for this podcast.

With love,
Crystal ✨🫶🏼❤️

I have been listening to this podcast for over a year! This is full of education that is fun to listen to, to the point and can be applied to aspects of your life outside of content creating too. Thank you so much for inspiring and motivating me!!
