Weekly content scheduling in HeyOrca

Rather than prepare posts for a month at a time, Amanda prefers to schedule blocks in her calendar for social media planning once a week. Each week, she takes content ideas from the spreadsheet and creates posts right in HeyOrca. At this stage, Amanda uses the Media Library that they’ve developed in HeyOrca to add photos and videos to each post.

A final important aspect of Amanda’s process is a weekly meeting where she reviews all upcoming content with the rest of the team. This keeps everyone up-to-date and also ensures that if there are any delays in product development, changes can be made.

5 HeyOrca Features Amanda Uses to Take Back Her Day

Now posting consistently with HeyOrca, Amanda shared her five favourite features that help her take back her day.

Scheduling

Being able to create and schedule posts right in HeyOrca has been a game changer. For example, when planning a vacation Amanda was able to schedule posts far in advance, so social media was taken care of while she was away. “Everything was publishing as I was sat on the beach in Portugal”, she explained.

Approvals

The platform’s approval settings allow Amanda to get Karen’s feedback with little delay in her planning process. Amanda explained: “There's lots of content where I can just go with it because it's been on our website, but there are other things where I need Karen’s approval. So, I ask her to pop into HeyOrca to take a look and we can go ahead and publish from there.”

Copy Post Feature

Amanda also likes the simplicity of being able to copy posts between platforms. “I love the ability to copy posts to other platforms, so I can take my Instagram content and add it to Facebook really easily.”

Media Library (with Folders)

This feature allows Amanda and her team to store a variety of photos and videos right in HeyOrca and organize them into folders. She says: “It’s been fantastic for us because we have many different categories of photos, so having them organized into folders helps us find things more easily.”

Text to Media Library

Looking for an easier way to upload photos to HeyOrca’s Media Library, Amanda reached out to the support team. This led to the Text to Media Library feature that allows users to send content to HeyOrca via text message. “Now we can send photos from our phone, right to the library. I love that feature”, she explained.

Streamlined Social Media Management - Made Easy 

Using HeyOrca, Amanda has successfully created a planning process for East Coast Glow’s social media. Enabling team collaboration and flexibility, HeyOrca has allowed the organization to post more consistently to showcase its unique story and wildcrafted products.
