One of the great things we love about being entrepreneurs is being able to take our office on the road. But travelling does take some planning; how to get there and where to stay. Your social media marketing needs planning as well. Our first social media tip concerns scheduling posts ahead of time.
Just a little background about our travels on the road. Last year we purchased a 1985 Minnie Winnie that we nicknamed Serenity. For those of you who are familiar with Joss Whedon’s short-lived sci-fi series Firefly, will recognize that name immediately. That name embodies exactly how we feel about our RV. It’s old but there is still life in the old girl. This photo was snapped at Point Mugu NAS, California where we were camped about 50 yards from the Pacific Ocean for five days.
Now to get back to the topic at hand. As entrepreneurs, we are blessed with the ability to take our laptops and work in the local coffee shop. For us, location doesn’t matter as long a there’s a strong WiFi connection.
During a recent road trip we had some difficulties obtaining reliable WiFi access. Fortunately, because we did some planning, our social media postings went on without fail.
