In this guide, we’re going to be seeing what’s a content library, how it works, and how to create one.
In simple words, content libraries are like folders on your computer. They contain a bunch of files that are relevant to a certain topic.
Essentially, content libraries allow you to categorize your social updates into different manageable units.
Dividing your content into different categories makes it easier for you to schedule your content.
By dividing content into libraries like My Blog, Other People’s Content, Interesting Questions, and Witty Quotes, you can easily manage and schedule your content.
It also helps you execute your content curation strategies in a manageable way.
Now, let’s move to the How part.
Firstly, head on over to your Dashboard from the main menu. Then, click the ‘Add New Library’ button in the top right corner like so:
While creating a library, you need to set three things:
- Name of the library: Give your library a meaningful name so as to make it easier to identify it and quickly grasp the type of content that’s stored in it.
- Color of the library: You can also add custom colors to your libraries depending on the content they store or the social platform they are made for. For instance, “Facebook posts” could be blue and “Instagram posts” could be purple.
- One-time use or Recurring library: In case you don’t want to post your updates recurringly i.e. in repeating cycles, you can choose to create a ‘One-time use library’. Updates in this library, once posted, will expire and not used recurringly.
Keep in mind that the updates you add in a one-time-use library are not recurring in nature and will expire once posted on your social accounts.
Once you have set these details up, go ahead and click ‘Add Library’.
Your library is now created! Go ahead and fill it up with new content!
