Friday Digital Roundup

The Friday Digital Roundup is a witty take on the weird world of the internet. With fun stories from around the globe, it’s the only email newsletter you’ll actually read and enjoy!

We do love writing it, but clearly not as much as people like receiving it - just look at the response we got when a technical hitch meant it wasn’t sent out on time!

Coffee and the FDR is how I start my Friday.
Do not engage until I have devoured both

When it comes to the end of the week, there is no better way to start a Friday than with a run around the internet with Todd and Jo in the FDR. Just don't let them know I do it from the loo!

Why You Definitely Need A Social Media Plan Even If You Think You’ve Got It Covered!

social, Social Media, social media marketing

Planning your social media is kind of a big deal.



According to Data Rerportal, more than 4.5 billion people are now on social media – that’s 400 million more than it was this time last year. If you haven’t taken your business to social media, WHY NOT?

It’s an untapped resource for promotion, starting conversations, advertising, lead generating, and more!

If you’re ready to go, stop. You need a plan first. But why?


Why You Definitely Need A Social Media Plan Even If You Think You’ve Got It Covered!

You need a social media plan because…


It helps to prevent mistakes

If your content is already planned out and scheduled in advance, the chance of a mistake will be lessened – or you’ve given yourself enough time to fix the mistakes before it’s too late!

It keeps your posts consistent

I know we bang on about this all the time, but planning ensures that your social media stays consistent. No one wants to follow someone that posts twenty times in one day, but at the same time, they won’t want to follow a once-a-monther either.

It saves time

Getting everything together to create a content calendar takes time, yes, but having your posts scheduled and ready to go for the next week or even month, greatly reduces the time you spend posting each day.  It also eradicates that “staring at a blank screen trying to figure out what to post” feeling – so you’ve got more time to spend focusing on your core business!

It helps you stay on top of the dates that matter

Social media day themed campaigns are an easy way to elevate your brand and promote your work – by planning ahead and creating special themed content, you can demonstrate that you care about the key dates that matter to your followers (and potential customers).


If you’re struggling to get yourself and your social media plan organised, get in touch. We can help!
