Branden Harvey has always been on a mission: to share more good news. He founded Good Good Good (GGG), a media company to help people feel less overwhelmed by the news and more equipped to make a meaningful difference. From launching a membership site, newsletter, podcast, and the Goodnewspaper, he knew right away he couldn't do it all. Enter social media manager, Megan. Together they’ve been using PLANOLY as their go-to tool for helping GGG with all their social media marketing efforts.
For GGG, their goal has always been to show up for their community by creating consistent and beautiful content that is supportive, shareable, and makes a difference in the world. They aim to always make people feel more hopeful — especially during challenging times. In 2020, when our feeds were overwhelmed with heartbreaking and shocking headlines, socially conscious followers flocked to GGG’s Instagram. With the vast increase in followers came the added responsibility to keep up with the news cycle while continuing to produce thoughtful and nuanced content.
"I think of PLANOLY as my virtual assistant. I’m spending most of my day either researching, creating, or implementing our social media plan. PLANOLY has helped take the implementation part of managing social media off my to-do list almost entirely, so I can focus my time and effort on doing quality research and creating beautiful, impactful content."Megan Burns, Social Media Manager @ Good Good Good
Megan began using PLANOLY to optimize time spent planning and scheduling content, as well as holding her accountable for maintaining a consistent schedule. She uses features like PLANOLY’s visual grid, hashtag manager, auto-post, placeholder, and social calendar to achieve GGG's goal of showing up for their community.

Interact consistently with community using auto-post
“Even as someone who spends most of her day on or thinking about social media, it can still be distracting and a burden on my mental health. I get so excited about all the good that social media is capable of bringing into the world, but social media managers aren’t immune from the negative impacts simply because it’s our job! PLANOLY’s features, especially auto-post, hashtag manager, and placeholder, plus the reliability of the platform, is like having another amazing, supportive teammate there to help share the workload.”Megan Burns, Social Media Manager @ Good Good Good
PLANOLY enabled Good Good Good's social media manager Megan to optimize her time, continue to create a consistent presence on Instagram, and focus on growing their audience through creating thoughtful and nuanced content.
"I use the visual grid to plan out how our posts look overall. I also love how I can batch-upload content to figure out how I want them to look in the feed. Once they’re uploaded, I create the posts entirely in PLANOLY: writing the caption, adding hashtags, and scheduling to post. With auto-post, I can set all my posts for the day or for a few days - hello weekend! — and don’t have to worry about revisiting it later, or having another project or task interrupted."Megan Burns, Social Media Manager @ Good Good Good
