When you begin in social media, there’s a lot of conflicting advice. For example:
- Experiment to find what’s right for you
- Be consistent
- Once you put anything out there, it’s there forever and can’t be removed
- Make mistakes, you’ll learn from them
Yet it’s inadvisable to try to keep a schedule when you’re operating in a vaccuum. Your schedule starts to write itself as you interact with your community. That’s when you start to find that you should write your blog posts every Tuesday at 10am. Or that your audience likes to watch your videos over the weekend. It all happens through relationship. And that takes time.
So in your search for consistency, keep the end goal in mind – relationship with your community.
How did you find your social media "rhythm"? (Or are you still trying to find it?)
