Blogging for Business While on VacationHovey
Consistency is very important when you’re blogging for business, so what do you do when it’s time for vacation? YES! Entrepreneurs do, on occasion, but not very often, get real (as opposed to pretend, where you’re checking your cell every 10 minutes) time away from the business.
The first thing you need to know is that most blogging platforms allow you to schedule your posts. No, I did NOT get up at 7 am today and write this post for 7:30 publication. I think this is one of the oldest and most accepted forms of social media automation/scheduling. So, if you are planning to take that much needed and way overdue break from the business, write a post or two ahead of time and schedule them to go at your regular posting time.
What if you can’t think of things to write that far ahead? You could do what I’m doing right now and write something about your vacation. At the very least, you could simply put up a vacation notice post, but I think you can do better than that.
Why not take the opportunity to show new readers some of your best work on the blog? A list post is easy to generate. HEY. Good idea.
Here are some of my favourite posts with advice on how to use social media for business using Hootsuite (aff.).
Everyone is always looking for freebies, right? So here are all my posts about free software for small businesses.
As you’ve probably guessed, the Twirps are out of office this week. I hope you’ll enjoy reviewing some of my past posts…but even more, I hope you find time to take some vacation of your own!
