Social Media Posting Made Easy!

If you want more exposure for your business, event, promotion – just about anything! – we know that we should be posting more on Facebook, tweeting on Twitter, and sharing articles and information on LinkedIn, but we’re stuck with the eternal question . . . what to post?

Many sites tell us that we should be doing something, but they don’t give us the actual tools to get started. Think of the latest craze in adult coloring books – while anyone can doodle for free, millions prefer to color between the lines, finding it infinitely more relaxing and yet still creatively fulfilling – beginning with an established framework rather than a blank page. Knowing that the finished result will be pleasing to the eye relieves the person of the stress of the creative act – and both enjoyment and beautiful pictures follow.

This site – along with accompanying Facebook page, mailing list and action plans – was developed to give you actual posts, real usable examples, free resources and schedules to manage your social media marketing strategy.

July 29 – International Tiger Day

#InternationalTigerDay

The tiger is the largest animal of the cat family, and can reach up to 660 pounds and 11 feet long. While you may think something that large and powerful wouldn’t have many problems, most tiger species are extinct in the wild, and we are in serious danger of losing tigers from the earth forever. Today is International Tiger day, so please help to assist the dwindling tiger population – through your support, education, and choice of products which do not contribute to the deforestation of our rain forests.

July 22 – National Ratcatcher’s Day

#NationalRatCatchersDay

Happy National Ratcatcher’s Day! According to the folktale, residents of the German town of Hamelin hired a pied piper to rid their village of rats by playing his flute. Upon finishing the task, the townsfolk refused to pay – so the Pied Piper returned, again played his flute while the children followed him, and he then disappeared with them all. The morale of the story – pay your debts!
