Have You Considered Starting A Blog? If Not You Should!!

Have You Considered Starting A Blog? If Not You Should!!

I could probably spend all day talking about the benefits of blogging. I could say that you’ll become a better writer and communicator. I would probably mention that in a social media world it’s important to have a voice that stands out and makes you unique. I would talk about how it’ll probably become a money making side hustle if you take the right steps. I’d say things about how it helps you learn to learn, do research, and communicate…

Pin It Button…

This one is more for the bloggers out there especially the ones who use WordPress, so if that isn’t you, feel free to skip this post. I’ve always known I needed to have the “Pin It” button available for my posts. You know the button in the top left corner that shows up when you hover over a photo that allows you to “Pin” or “share” the content on Pinterest. It makes sharing content simple, easy, and convenient, but most…

Pinterest Visuals…

Pinterest is similar to Instagram in that it’s pretty visual. A lot of times people are attracted to your pins simply by your photo. I’m not going to pretend that I’m an expert photographer, I’m definitely not great at editing, but I have learned a little about culture hacking. I’ve done some research on which photos are popular, what pins are doing well and have done my best to replicate what has worked for others (with my own spin on…

Have You Seen These Pinterest Stats…

I mentioned in a previous post that I’m learning from Rachel Pedersen in her “Social Media University.” She really does drop great knowledge in her courses about each individual social media platform. There’s a ton of stuff I would love to write about, but have to hold back because it is her material and I don’t feel it would be right for me to give it all away with out her permission. That being said there are little things that…

3 Reasons Why I’m Learning Pinterest…

About a month ago I said I was going all in on Instagram. For the last few months I’ve really dived into Insta learning the ins and outs of how to use it.

In my last post I mentioned that this next months focus is going to be on Pinterest (if you missed it you can go…

4 Types of Accounts You Should Follow On Instagram?!?

4 Types of Accounts You Should Follow On Instagram?!?

There seems to be two major strategies on Instagram as far as following different accounts go… First, the follow/unfollow strategy. Here’s the gist of it, you follow a bunch of accounts in your target audience i.e. if you’re a sports blogger you’d follow a bunch of 18-35 year old men who are fans of the teams and sports you write about. Then everyone who doesn’t follow you back, you return the favor by unfollowing them. Second, you want everything to…

I signed up for a trial of Social Media University from Rachel Pederson. She walks you through the different steps she took to become a successful Social Media Manager. In the course she gives tips and strategies about social media managing as well as the different social media platforms. Naturally me learning about Instagram I watched that section first. It was pretty informative. The part that I was like…”What? How did I not know about this?” Was when she mentioned…

I Shut Down The Insta Auto-Bot…

A couple posts ago I wrote about using an auto-bot for one of my accounts. Well, I decided to shut it down early. I know what you’re thinking…didn’t really give it much of a chance did ya? Here’s the thing. It has taken me to long to learn this about Social Media…it’s social. An auto-bot takes all the social out of it. Yes it was great to have it all automated and frankly it worked pretty well (I’ll show you…
