Let me Introduce myself –
Hi Everyone I’m Amy-Lee Farr, I’m a photographer, marketer and podcaster, who helps people who struggle with content marketing such as social media and blogging etc as well as mindset transformation to save time, end the struggle and really see the success they envisioned at the beginning of their journey.
When I first started in business over 10 years ago, I literally had no idea what I was doing and I fumbled my way through, I spent hours of time researching and learning all of the different ways I could take my dream and make it a reality. It was really hard, and it took a long, long time on that learning curve journey.
I remember being bullied online as a photographer, I remember failing over and over. Until I wasn’t failing anymore, and I started having win after win. Since then I have spent years perfecting what I learned from my experiences, educating myself and developing various businesses for myself and coaching others so they could have similar and even more successful than myself.
So, after all of that, I collated the years of information I learned and put it all together to share with others online through Twenty4 Social. If you are starting out you’ll be happy to know I have done all the hard work for you… if you have an idea, a dream or a business, or you might be an entrepreneur or becoming one and you’re looking for support on your journey, maybe you need more strategies to move you to the next level – And that is why I am here to share my most valuable lessons with you and hopefully help you and inspire you to keep growing.
My why is to help others be successful, I truly believe there is more than enough money, love and success in the world for everyone, all we have to do is harness it.
Which brings me to today’s Live topic. ‘The Secret To Creating a 45 minute Social Media Workflow’
I want to assure you that you are in the right place if you are a business owner using social media or thinking of starting a business and using social media to market yourself.
You’re in the right place if you have been on social media for a while and just can’t seem to get traction with your posts, maybe struggling with the engagement of your audience. Maybe social media advertising seems like something you will never understand.
Also, you’re also in the right place if you are overwhelmed by the thought of using social media because you really just don’t have the time to dedicate to social media.
In the next 5 days we will go on a journey together to solve the issues overwhelming you, cut down the time you spend posting to social media, increase audience engagement and start to see a monetary return for your investment of time and money into social media.
One of the things I hear the most from business owners is the desire for more time. I get it. I wish I had an extra few hours in my day, too.
If I had just one more hour in my day, I could probably at least shower before 5pm.
But since we’re only granted 24 hours, let’s chat about how we leverage it, shall we?
I’ve discovered that when I plan for success, I’m successful.
I know that sounds simple, but planning is the first step to accomplishing precisely what you want.
Speaking of steps, let’s break this down into an easy step-by-step process so you can plan a schedule for social media.
Step 1- Decide How many Times You Can Realistically post each week
The best way to grow your social platforms is to show up on a consistent basis.
There are few things worse than disappearing from Instagram, then returning with a new-found vengeance posting six photos in a day (#annoying).
When your followers don’t know what to expect, they’re less likely to engage, or worse, they may unfollow your account.
When you decide how many times you’ll post in a week, you know exactly how to execute your approach in a strategic and paced way.
I suggest posting 5-7 times per week to boost momentum.
Step 2 – Categorise Event-Related Posts
I love this monthly activity when it comes to social media. It’s probably because I am the type of person who looks for any excuse to have a party.
It could be something small like national coffee day and I’m like party at my place!
In all seriousness, understanding social events for the month is an incredibly helpful tool when it comes to creating and sharing content.
STEP 3 – Break the Month into Weeks
Once I have an overview of social media for the month, I outline how I will execute my plan one week at a time (but, hey, if you can manage more than one week at a time, rock on with your bad self!).
Every Friday, I plan my content for the week, and typically incorporate: one event-related post, three work-related posts, and three narrated posts.
In your Toolkit I have included my Weekly Social Media to Do list, so feel free to print it out and use it every week!

Day One –
