Are you trying to be consistent with your content and use it to grow your all natural product business online, but it's been a challenge? If you have a homemade soap business, candle making business, essential oil business, all natural cleaning products, network marketing wellness company, vegan businesses, or any other natural business, these apps will help you.
Remember it takes time, skill, and trial and error, but you got this. I know if you're a new entrepreneur you probably have heard the phrase "content is king" which is kind of true. But that doesn't mean just post anything, I want you to use these apps to start posting with intention.
I've seen people, myself included waste so much time on creating content that didn't actually help build our business. It didn't help us standout help show our personality and uniqueness, or promote our products in a non-salesy way.
Content Creation takes time and as a newbie myself, I can say it took me stepping away and really learning what worked for me and my audience to figure out the best way to naturally do it. Where it didn't look like I had just thrown something together, stolen someone else's content, none of my personality, was desperate for sales, or wasn't consistent.
These apps are great for people trying to look super active and professional on social media without having to always constantly be online working. Starting out especially, I know you are probably using your phone and trying to do this on the go. So I want to share 5 apps to help you create content easier.
First I want to talk about one of my favorite apps for jazzing up my videos, and showing more of my uniqueness is Inshot app. It's a free app and it's my secret to adding PIP (picture in a picture), adding text, voice-overs, music and more. You can also easily split, trim, cut and merge videos, which allows space to get really creative.
This app is free, and the majority of the options work using the free version. Plus bonus point for no watermark. Now, I will say, it used to have a watermark but I haven't seen one in years so I'm not sure if this was intentional or a glitch they haven't noticed yet.
Canva is my go to app and I'm sure if you are doing any type of content creation you have probably heard of this app by now. But they offer a paid and free option. You can save your brand colors, so all your content is consistent. Save templates, pre-made templates, and images. They now have an option for AI writing, so it'll write your copy for you. So if you're looking for apps for content writing this is a very good option here. Use my affiliate link to sign up for a free account today if you don't have one already. Click Here.
Phonto is the next app, I don't use this as often anymore because I have Canva. But when I needed to add quick text to an image or arrow this was my go to. Especially when I used to make memes. So if you're looking for something pretty simple and straight to the point with a less of a learning curve than Canva this may be an option you would like.
Facebook Business Suite
Now that you have learned how to create your videos and image post, now it's time to schedule them out. Facebook Business Suite as a planner on it's app or you can use the desktop version. I like having the option on my phone for quick things I need to upload straight from my phone. I have had this app for a while but never noticed the update of the schedule until someone told me about it.
I have been using it for the past couple weeks and it's helping me stay consistent. Since then my account has been reaching more and more people.
This is a bonus app and I know its a social media site and search engine but hear me out, this app has brought so much traffic to my website in two weeks of me posting on it. I went from getting zero users to like 20. It may not seem like much, but with this new website I see so much potential in this app I had to share it with you all that's looking to reach more people with less fight of algorithms and needing a bunch of followers to be seen. Regardless of which search engine you want to choose, I'm learning in order to really build a profitable business like the one you want, you have to have your content on a search engine, so when you have days when you can't post your content is still working for you, for months and years to come.
Pinterest allows you an opportunity to create short videos, SEO friendly photos, and add links to each one. So if you have a product business this is great for that.
When I first started my natural business, I didn't have a website and then I got a WIX website for free, but once I got a few dollars I upgraded. But when I think about all those years I never understood the importance of checking analytics until recently. This app also has a desktop version to show you what's working and what's not. See how your content is actually doing, is it increasing sales, reaching others, etc. I try to look at this one at least once a month.
