In this interactive workshop “Content Production Made Easy for Authors” Sara will help authors learn to organize their time and their content ideas to clearly implement a social media plan, whether that is for their own use or to facilitate work with an author assistant or intern. Come prepared with your own social media accounts already set up and a firm understanding of who you are as an author.
At the end of this presentation you will know:
1. How to identify audience characteristics to guide you toward effective social media planning
2. Strategies to save time and minimize stress while you organize the content you share across your channels
3. How to implement a free template tool to plan your content schedule
