[guest post by Mallie Rydzik]

Hootsuite, Buffer, Edgar, Latergramme…they’re all great tools, but they’re also old news.

By now, you already know how to schedule your social media “conversation starters” ahead of time on various platforms. You’ve got Twitter chat tools down to a science.

But how are you systematizing…you?

When people think about “social media systems,” they tend to think in terms of the tools above. But systems are more than just tools. They’re the ways you successfully repeat processes every day, week, or month.

Customer loyalty is the new marketing

Customer Loyalty is the New Marketing

[guest post by Jessica Mehring ]

No matter what industry you’re in, what your niche is, or who your customers are, customer loyalty is a huge revenue-generator and cost saver for your business.

In a nutshell, customer loyalty is the likelihood of previous customers continuing to buy from you, choosing your business over your competitors, and recommending your products/services to their friends, family and colleagues.

And time suck that it is, scrolling mindlessly through Pinterest can feel a whole lot safer than risking it.

But here’s the deal.

Fear of the unknown (showing up as, hello! procrastination) is 100% normal whenever you are stretching yourself to do something new or different and especially when it feels really important to you!

How to Create an Editorial Calendar For More Effective Content

[guest post by Lacy Boggs]

You know that saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”? Well, it’s true of content marketing, too. As you know, just throwing content out onto social media without a strategy isn’t a good way to build your business. It’s a waste of time and effort.

The same can be said for blogging without a strategy. Crafting a valuable, thoughtful blog post takes time and effort — and that time and effort is wasted if you’re not following a strategy to make those blog posts convert for you.

I like to think of an editorial calendar as your way of zooming out on your content strategy. Done correctly, it’s your big picture and your roadmap to success.
