Cinchshare Social Media Post Scheduler| A to Z Challenege

cinchshare logo

If you want to keep a social media presence consistency is key.  There are over 1 billion users on Facebook. Let’s let that sink in for a moment… one BILLION, with a B! There are more that one hundred million users Instagram every month. Pinterest has reached 150 million users a month. That is a lot of people! Chances are there are going to be a few who could benefit from your business.  How do you keep yourself in front of them? Cinchshare is my go-to for scheduling posts for when I won’t be online. I do still have a 9-5 job and being on the internet all day is frowned upon. 😉

Please note this post contains affiliate links. That means if you choose to use the services, I get a small percentage back, which helps me continue this website. But don’t worry, I only choose products and services I have used, and I stand behind! 

When Cinchshare started, it was simply a Facebook post scheduler. It would let you schedule posts to your personal timeline, business page and events. It also let you save frequently used wording as a textclip. Over time they have added many features. Batch posting is my favorite, especially for Facebook parties. If you are in sales I highly recommend you read How to Keep your Business Rockin’ in the Winter.  It goes into why Facebook parties are a great addition to your business at any time of the year.

Cinchshare is also integrated with Pinterest and Twitter now. We just need Instagram to get on board!

Apart from the services, I really love the community they have created on Facebook. Their SocialCinch Club is a great free community. They offer all kinds of tips and challenges. Tonight they are hosting an event titled, “Tips to Make More Money With Your Biz” and it is completely free.  I love it when a company offers free resources. It makes me feel like they really care about my success and they’re not just about making money.

Speaking of money, there is a monthly cost for Cinchshare, but if you are on social media regularly it is worth it. You can check them out for yourself here, Cinchshare. They offer a 7 day free trial, but if you use the code “CINCHFREE” you get an additional 30 days free.

I hope this helps you keep your business online. For more tips be sure to join my FREE Facebook group. It’s primarily for busy bees who would like a little support managing their busy life.

How to Keep your Business Rockin’ in the Winter

winter-how-to

Whether you like to hibernate in the winter with the bears or you need a backup for when Old Man Winter strikes, Facebook parties are the way to go!  Facebook parties were all the rage a few years ago and people found great success with them. However, now days Facebook parties are a dime a dozen. Chances are you get invite to at least one a week.

In the spirit of full disclosure, this post contains affiliate links, which means that I may get a commissions if you decide to purchase anything from the link below. I only recommend products & services that I use and love myself, so I know you’ll be in good hands.

In order to stand out from the crowd you’re going to have to be a little different.  If you need help updating your party, I highly recommend taking Sassy Suite’s Epic Facebook party course. You can check out the details here. This is a self-paced course which includes a workbook and videos. It takes you from the planning stage all the though to the post party.

It helped me see that creating a Facebook party along the lines of a real party was more fun for our guests. It kept people more engaged and interested in the party. It all starts off with an epic party playlist. Because what’s a party without a little music.  🙂

My first Epic Facebook party using this course had more engagement and sales. Now obviously, there is no guarantee, but many people have found success with this program.

Keep in mind, Facebook parties aren’t just for the winter time. You can use this format all through the year. Here are just a couple of situations where you might need a Facebook party:

  1. Long distance host or guests – No longer is distance an issue, everyone can come together for a good time on their phone or computer.
  2. Summer vacations – Holding in-home parties in the summer can be challenging due to everyone’s vacation schedules. This makes it possible for people to join no matter where they are.
  3. The busy host – Seems like most people now days are so busy they barely have time for themselves. This gives them a chance to socialize with their friends without interrupting their schedule.

The best part about this party format is that you can adapt it to any theme so no 2 parties are alike. Here are some parties I’ve done in the past:

  1. Beach Bash
  2. Fall Festival
  3. Spooktacular Halloween
  4. Modern Day Fairytale

To keep your party running smoothly, I highly recommend using Cinchshare to schedule your posts so you can focus on responding to questions and comments come party time. It was a lifesaver when my 2 year old decided she wanted to stay up late one night. 😉 See the sidebar for a link to their website.

I hope this helps you keep your business going all year long. There is nothing harder then having to restart your business time after time.

Stay Happy!
