Using Trello as a content library

I am a huge Trello fan and there are so many ways that you can create and use the boards to manage pretty much all parts of your busy life.

When I first started my social media pages and posting content, I had a folder of images and excel spreadsheets and Google docs with quotes and tips and ideas on content to create.

I found it hard to come up with content, keep track of what I was posting and so time-consuming. That is when I discovered that I could use Trello to create my content library.

What is a content library?

A content library is having all your social media content organised in one place that you can reuse and repurpose easily.

With Trello, you could create a Content Library workspace which means you can have up to 10 boards of content, for example, a social media content board, a blog board, a newsletter board, a video board etc.

Each board can have several lists to separate the categories and topics. Trello makes it easier to see visually where there are gaps in your content for when you are next creating content.

It is also a lot easier (for me) to plan my content on my social media calendar. I can look at my content library at the tips list or the motivation list and create a new post. I also use the labels and cover header images which is useful if you are a visual person.

Benefits of using Trello as a social media content library
  • It is simple and easy to set up and use
  • All your content is in one place
  • Easy to plan your social media content in advance
  • Easier to brainstorm new content ideas
  • Reuse and repurpose existing content
  • Use the boards in the way that suits the way that you work
  • Able to share your content library and calendar boards with a virtual assistant to assist with scheduling
  • Do you find it time-consuming to come up with what to post on social media? Would you find it useful to have your content in one place that you can refer to?

Having a content library and calendar boards on Trello can help with planning your social media for the month and inspire you to create new content too.
