Lesson 4: Creating Your Buckets

One last thing. Lets talk about Categories for your account. We’ve already talked about how you know what your audience likes, you know what your brand represents, but let’s start to think about regular topics for your posts. A friend of mine calls these buckets.  Like a reoccurring topic in a magazine, these are things that you expect to talk about regularly.  Knowing your buckets, or topics that you will cover regularly will help your stay on brand and keep a coherent feed. That way you are not scrambling for topics, You KNOW what topics you are covering, you just need to make sure it fits in a bucket.
