You’re going to be a guest on our weekly Instagram Live show - WLTW. Great! Here is a recommended timeline of what to post when. As well as files for you to download to use on social media.
Are these mandatory? No. The Downstage Media police won’t crack down on you. But Lives are always more fun with friends. So this is a way to get more of your friends to join in.
7 Days Ahead of Time (or more)
With a week or more before the show, you’ll want to get your infrastructure in place so that people can find out that you’re a guest on What I Learned This Week and where to check it out.
Add a new event to your company website’s calendar as well as your own personal website’s calendar. You can use the Events that we have on our page as a guide.
Social Media Events
Another option is to RSVP to Facebook Event for your specific WLTW. You’ll find those events here.
Bonus: write something in the discussion for your date. Saying something like:
Looking forward to finding out what you learned and sharing what I picked up this week!
Cherry on top bonus: Share this event with your friends and ask them to RSVP.
5 Days Ahead of Time
Send out an email to your personal email list telling them about WLTW and asking them to save the date to join, saying something like this:
Save the Date!
You know how your weeks usually slam into your weekends and you never really take stock of what you learned? Or didn’t have a second to consider how you grew as a person, artist, or business?
In a few days I’m going to share What I Learned This Week on Downstage Media’s WLTW show on Instagram Live. And you’ll have the chance to figure out what you learned this week and share it too!
