Best of all, Bublup complements the tools you’re already using! For example, links from different design platforms can be saved in Bublup alongside notes and other content, and anything saved can easily be shared with others.
If you’re ready to up your social media planning game, these four steps will help you get started with Bublup.
Speaking of “channel,” there are a lot of social channels out there! You’re going to want to set up folders to keep everything organized and easy to find. An example of a folder hierarchy that might work for you is:
Create Top-Level Folders
Top-level folders can contain endless subfolders, so whether you are someone who likes folders for each aspect of your social media planning or prefers to keep information at the top level, Bublup allows for flexibility based on your preference. For example, within your “Content Calendar” folder, you might want to make a subfolder for each individual channel:
Additionally, you might want to make subfolders within the channels for the different months, further broken down into weeks and days, depending on the amount of content you’re posting!
Working with social media means handling all kinds of media types. With Bublup, you can easily save web links, photos, videos, notes, documents, and any other file type in your folders. Again, using “Content Calendar” as an example, this might be a place where you organize content for each channel, research your content strategy, and track upcoming holidays and events. Different media types you save might include:
There are multiple ways to add items from both desktop and your mobile device.
Social media planning isn’t always a one-person show. More often than not, it takes a whole village. Here’s what you need to do when you want all hands on deck:
You can invite team members and/or clients to any folder when collaboration is needed, and set their permissions. For example, do you want them to be able to add their own content or only view the folder contents?
By selecting the “invite” icon, you can add others to your folder by email address or username. There are also different permission levels available such as view, add, edit, and invite privileges.
If you need to assign tasks, give an opinion, or receive approval for upcoming posts, you can use comments, @ mentions, and reactions to start conversations with other folder members.
