I love batching tasks because it keeps me focused for shorter periods of time. To batch my social media, I break them down into content types such as inspirational messages, tax tips, and customer highlights, just to name a few. Then, I create a checklist of content that falls into the content type – for example, quotes from Oprah could fall under inspirational messages. Once I have the content, I work on creating graphics for each item on the checklist, marking it complete once the graphic is done. I use the templates in Canva to make this easy. Finally, I schedule the posts using PromoRepublic.

And just so you know, I don’t do all these steps in one sitting! I may take 15 minutes one day to pull the inspirational messages from the internet and the next day creating the graphics … but batching is what makes this process so much more manageable.
