Let’s talk about your DigitalOcto queues.
DigitalOcto's queues are what sets us apart. They keep your content organized and make it easy for you to schedule the right type of content at the right time, without having to schedule each post by hand.
Other social schedulers delete your posts once they’re posted – DigitalOcto saves them forever. As time goes on and you build up a solid library of posts on DigitalOcto (filled up your queues), you can turn the Recycle option ON and let DigitalOcto post for you. without you having to do anything.
How do you go about filling your queues up so that you have really high-quality updates getting posted couple of times a day, every day, without interruption?
Well, as with everything else, the best approach is one step at a time. That’s how you’re going to fill your library of status updates – by breaking it down into categories, and tackling it in pieces, instead of all at once.
There are 5 categories (we called them QUEUES, and you will soon find out why) that come pre-set inside DigitalOcto, but you can add/edit/delete as many as you want!
They’re a solid framework for getting the ball rolling, though, so I suggest you can start with them.
My Blog Queue
Social media = social (talking to people) + media (content)
Your home for social media is not your social accounts, but it is your own website. This is where you want to drive people back to because that’s where money changes hands, that’s where people call you, that’s where people find more about your business, shop,etc.
On your website lives your blog. Your blog exists so people can feel like they can trust you.
You need to be regularly pushing updates to your own blog posts on social media - do not get shy about self-promotion!

Bonus! My queue
Every business is different, so leave yourself some space for updates that don’t fit within the other categories. It might be content pulled from your newsletter, or regular updates about product availability. Maybe you want to throw in quotes from client testimonials and reviews, or photos of people using your product. Maybe every time you release a new product, you have a specific type of update you like to use to announce it. Don’t assume that you’ll remember in the moment, or that you’ll post it on the fly! Categorize it. You’ll thank yourself later.
Now that you know what content to post in each category, let's make some strategic planning to fill up your social media calendar
