The Entrepreneur Life

Part of being an entrepreneur is knowing that you can not do everything yourself and be everything to everyone. Eventually you will need a team of people to help you. Especially when you have a family, there needs to be a balance of work, family, and me time. It’s not always easy to find this balance especially in the beginning. When you are first starting out in any business, consistency is key. People won’t believe you if you are not consistently showing up right?

In the past, hiring an assistant would be what you eventually had to- whether it be you hiring someone to post on social media for you, or type up blog posts you’ve written, or help you around the house, or have someone watch the kids while you get work done, long nights and early mornings-it’s just a part of being an entrepreneur. At some point you would have to hire help, right?

Fast forward to 2015 and we have these amazing people who came out with apps and websites to help us streamline our businesses by making it possible for us to schedule posts for our social media accounts. Which by the way, is a whole heck of a lot cheaper than hiring someone to do the same.

I’ve been looking for months at different apps and websites that are tailored for these specific things but they were all just too expensive for me. I just could not afford the business packages from most of these websites and most of them really did not need meet my needs.

So I did the free accounts on a few of them to see which one suited my needs best. My favorite by far is a website called Postcron!

You can post on your personal Facebook, Facebook like page, and even into Facebook groups! Say what?! You can also schedule posts for Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and more! That is the FREE account you guys! and their paid accounts come with some pretty awesome tools also, keep reading to see what they are!

Let me explain a little on a couple of these features that come with the paid accounts:

The Bulk Uploader- Upload a list of up to 1,000 posts from a single .CSV file ( a .CSV file is a spreadsheet or text file where the content is separated by commas and saved as a .CSV file)

The Watermark- pretty self-explanatory here. You can add your logo to each photo when you upload it to post.

Content Recommendations- This is where they  show you relevant articles from Twitter so you can share them with your followers on social media. (I really like this!)

Now tell me that this is not something that EVERY business owner should have!

Postcron is at www.postcron.com and they even have a blog where they post some very helpful and valuable post pertaining to marketing and business. As a an entrepreneur involved in network marketing this website is such a huge help! I can not even begin to tell you how much time it saves me!
