Be Consistent

An important part of keeping your SocialToaster program going strong is consistency. Your Superfans want to hear from you, so don’t leave them hanging. Once you’ve decided that your brand is in it for the long haul, try developing and sticking to a content calendar. That way you can stay connected and build sustainable relationships with your Superfans.

Every brand’s audience is unique, so in order to find the best time to send out a toast, we recommend conducting some simple publishing tests. Once the best times are identified, stick to them! It won’t take long for your audience to catch on and begin anticipating your brand’s next message.
