Tuesday

Share new content

Objective: Get new content trending that has been posted during the current posting cycle. Encourage Creators to share their own content, but don’t hesitate to help them with smart sharing.

Remind everyone about the Wednesday at 5 p.m. submission deadline

Objective: More Creators that submit content means there is more content for you to work with on social media. More Creators are more likely to submit their content if other exec members, aside from the EIC, remind them about the deadline. It creates peer-to-peer accountability.

Wednesday

Reach Out in GroupMe/FB group

Objective: Get everyone to share their articles in the group message or Facebook group. The first step in social sharing is always to share with your team members. This is also a good opportunity for Creators to get feedback on where else they should share their content, especially if they are stuck.

Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
