SLICE is a M-F news digest targeted to assist Social Media Managers and Small Business Owners doing their own marketing.


POSTING TO MULTIPLE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS- This is BIG news for Social Media Managers who want to share content across several client pages. For now, it is ONLY being rolled out on iOS. But if you manage accounts that target specific audiences for the same brand, this will be a big time saver. More


HOOTSUITE LOOKS TO PAST TO SEE FUTURE- What worked in 2018, what didn’t, what could have or should have worked. All the info has been accumulated in Hootsuite’s annual Social Trends Report. Data was extracted from more than 3,000 large and small businesses. What does Hootsuite see as trends for 2019? Definitely 2nd ☕️reading. More


CREATING EDITORIAL CALENDARS IN GOOGLE CALENDAR- Often in the various social media groups that I am a member of the question is posed “can you recommend a good source to create/house an editorial calendar?” There are many good free and paid-for options. But I found this news interesting. HubSpot staff recently shared that for a simple solution they use Google Calendar — even though there is a marketing calendar built into their software! More


GOOGLE ASSISTANT HELPS TRAVELERS-The latest version of Google Assistant is able to interpret languages, provide directions, and check into flights. Sounds handy. More

As a Social Media Manager or Small Business Owner, what is one of YOUR biggest pain points? Could it be the blogging process? You KNOW you need blogs for improved SEO on Google, but researching, writing, revising to include keywords, and then editing are very time-consuming tasks. Especially if it takes you THREE HOURS to write the first paragraph!

On the other hand, I can write three paragraphs just getting out of bed. Make better use of your time and tap into my over 40 years of experience as a reporter, editor, and free-lance community writer to generate your creative content. – Anthony Scialis, Managing Editor, SoMe Slice
