Jenell B. Stewart has the gift of teaching. She knows all the right words to take a complex idea and make it simple. This discovery was only heightened during graduate school, which was when she was teaching and embracing her natural hair journey. It was when Jenell launched a blog & then a YouTube channel as outlets to express herself and build an online community. These channels grew and she eventually rebranded herself from the natural hair guru to a social media maven. She successfully turned what started as a hobby she'd work on in the evenings into a six-figure business.
Jenell understood the importance of posting consistently but found herself struggling to keep up. She explains, "When you manage multiple social accounts and have to upload content daily, it’s challenging. I needed something to give me back my time and help me stay consistent.” She knew it was time to find a social media scheduler.
“As a mom boss, my schedule is hectic. When I'm not working, spending time with my family is my priority. As a digital course creator and brand coach, having consistent social media content is the bloodline of my business. Being busy is no excuse. PLANOLY has made it possible for me to post every single day, even sometimes multiple times a day without trading off time with my clients and the people that matter to me most.”Jenell B.

PLANOLY helped Jenell stay consistent with posting to her multiple pages and get more time back to spend with her family. She uses features like quick schedule, auto-post, edit & share, drafts, account switcher, comments, and the history feature to take her weekly Sunday content planning to the next level.
Repurpose existing content using the history feature
Jenell prioritizes working smarter and not harder. Many PLANOLY users like the history feature to retrieve their published content, but Jenell uses it to strategically repurpose her Instagram content. She explains, "As I'm growing and gaining new followers, something that I posted in early 2020 is content that many of my followers haven't seen yet." The history feature keeps a running list of your previously scheduled grid posts and Stories, making it easy for Jenell to add a former post back to her grid & then change the image or caption.
Create a consistent posting schedule with quick schedule
The quick schedule feature helps Jenell stay consistent with her posting schedule and sleep in a little bit on the weekdays. The quick schedule feature lets you create your own preset posting times on PLANOLY. For Jenell, she posts every day on Instagram at 6 a.m. With help from quick schedule and auto-post, Jenell can still interact with her community all before ever having to be awake for the day. For each social account, Jenell created a series of quick schedule times to create a consistent posting schedule.
“On Sundays, I sit down and open PLANOLY and start drafting out my content from my content buckets. I’ll put everything into my grid and plan out my week. Nothing like this would be possible without PLANOLY, especially with its features like the auto-post feature. Thankfully, PLANOLY lets me take breaks and be able to go on vacation without feeling like I have to post.”Jenell B. Stewart, Brand Coach & Social Entrepreneur
PLANOLY helped Jenell stay consistent with her posting schedule, invest more time back into her business, and spend more time with her family while staying present.
"PLANOLY’s features have truly helped me in more ways than I could have imagined. It's like having a social media manager or a virtual assistant at my disposal to make sure my content gets posted when this mom boss is building her empire and taking care of her family."Jenell B.
