NAVIGATING & USING PREVIEW
3. USING PREVIEW & NOTION, TOGETHER
It's time to post! Here is how to navigate Preview & Notion!
SCHEDULING REELS ON INSTAGRAM
Communication is key.
During your call with your BTS expert, be sure to communicate your needs, concerns, goals, and ideas. Just think of us as your business bestie.
Queen of collaboration.
Notion is the digital home for ideas, content, notes, and supporting tools. To avoid clutter and confusion, be sure to delete content that has already been posted and add details to the appropriate tab to avoid any oversights.
Beauty & brains.
Teamwork has many benefits. Working together encourages new ideas and creative approaches that propel your brand’s vision. Have an idea for a post? Add it to your social tab in Notion. Inspired by someone else’s post? Add it to your social tab.. Your BTS expert will chat with you about your ideas, trends, marketing dates, new or struggling services, and promotions. Keeping “The Plan” updated is crucial.
Be sure to fill out your Caption Questionnaire so we can capture your brand’s unique style and voice when creating written content.
Review, revise (skip the repeat).
Once your grid has been uploaded, you have 7 days to request any revisions to your content. You are allotted one revision per individual file.
Social Media Management (in addition to notes for ‘Branded Posts and Feed Design)
Please add any necessary notes for posts scheduled in the upcoming week by the Thursday prior. This helps avoid delays and gives your content copywriter ample time to provide your caption by Sunday.
To maximize efficiency, please upload all images and content that you wish to be incorporated in your grid for the month by due date to your media library in Notion. If we are creating your reels, please add any b-roll or content you’d like to be used in your media library with the theme/notes and individual content.
Due to Instagrams community guidelines, you must have Business or Creator account (linked through Facebook) for us to work collaboratively through the Preview App. Additionally, we are unable to personally post any Reels or IGTV videos. Don’t worry, we will get you all set up in advance so posting is quick & convenient.
Onsite Content Creation
Partner with your BTS expert to solidify a content lineup prior to your scheduled capture day.
If your content lineup requires wardrobe changes, props, etc. please have these organized and readily available to avoid delays.
Be mindful of your setting. In addition to choosing a space that mimics your overall aesthetic, consider lighting and how the time of day may impact the space. Please let your BTS expert know if you have lighting concerns in advance so that they may plan accordingly.
Exceptional content is created when the story is cohesive. Partner with your BTS expert prior to your visit to discuss attire, setting, lighting, music, etc. to maximize the impact of your content.
Time is of the essence.
To maximize your experience and to capture the most content, avoid distractions during filming, such as phones, etc.
Delays are a major downer.
Be sure to be ready to film when your expert arrives so that you can take advantage of your entire time slot.
Technology can be tricky
In addition to saving your Reel to drafts, be sure to save a hard copy to your device. The Beauty Table is not responsible for any lost content.
CAPTION WRITING SERVICES
To better support your copy writer, complete the caption questionnaire. This will ensure that every caption is thoughtfully curated with your brand’s image, voice, and goals in mind.
