5 Tips to Simplify Your Social Media Marketing

Mar 22, 2020

Here's the thing about social media marketing, it's not supposed to be so difficult. 

If it is, you're probably overcomplicating it. 

And I don't blame you.

Most "experts" will tell you to throw more tech, more money, more content or more tricks & hacks at the problem.

But, that's only going to add more anxiety. And leave you wondering what the point of being on social media even is.

To escape this frustrating cycle, here are 5 tips to SIMPLIFY your social media marketing.

Once you get these right, you will find everything else just flows nicely. 

 

1. Know what you want.

Why are you on social media in the first place, what is your primary goal?

Maybe you want to increase your online sales, or maybe the reason your on social is to draw people into your email list.

Whatever your reason is, start with your end goal in mind and work backwards so that you know what you need to be doing today, to get closer to it.

How Often Should You Post on Social Media?

Mar 12, 2020

Seth Godin publishes a blog every, single day.

He also spends 16 hours reading and researching a day.

Agh, wouldn’t that be amazing?  

So how often should you post?

This one of the most common questions I get asked. 

The answer is, everyone's situation is different.

So I created this 4-Step formula to help you figure out how often you should post on social media.

It goes like this:

 

VALUE x CAPACITY x CONSISTENCY x CHANNEL  = YOUR POSTING SCHEDULE

 

VALUE: each time you post you are asking someone to give you attention - make sure its worth their time. And by value it might be: make them smile, feel calm, feel good, feel smarter, feel special, feel in-the-know…

 

CAPACITY: you are going to hear me repeat this word A LOT, because there’s no point in setting yourself up for failure by setting unrealistic expectations. So, how much of this type of valuable content can you create? 

 

CONSISTENCY: choose your...

How-to grow your Instagram following

Feb 20, 2020
Here are 10 simple ways to up your gram.
 
1. Focus
 
This one is super important. Your audience is facing information overload. What is the one thing they will get from following you? Look at your strengths, find your niche and post content that consistently reinforces your unique point of view.
 
2. Consistency
 
Post consistently on Instagram. Brands that get into a regular flow with Instagram posts tend to see the best results. If you can keep up with posting great quality content 7 times a week or more - go for it! But for most of us, that can be a little overwhelming. So pick how many days works for you, keeping in mind, quality over quantity always wins the long game.
 
3. Overall Feed
 
The overall look and feel of your feed plays a role in whether visitors decide to follow you. Ideally, your content will be all brand-aligned, so that someone looks at it and instantly knows it belongs to your brand.

The best Facebook strategy in 2020

Feb 20, 2020
Back in the good ol’ days (lol 2011) when I was a Social Media Manager we used to post on Facebook at least once a day and we would reach most of our audience. Today, not so much. Since then Facebook took away our free lunch and turned down all that organic reach to basically 0. It’s now a pay-to-play game that we’re constantly trying to hack so that we can get the most bang for our buck.
 
While Facebook Ads are still one of the most effective ways to get your message in front of your audience - there is another Facebook feature that is definitely worth your attention, if you are not already actively using it.
 
That is Facebook Groups.
 
While everyone has been scrambling to get attention on their Facebook Page, Groups have continued to grow and see incredible quality engagement. I post in groups quite a bit these days and I almost fall of my chair at the level of engagement I get on my post - knowing what it would be if I were...

Which social media channels should I use for my business?

Feb 20, 2020

Here's the thing. There are so many channels out there, it can feel like everyday there is something new to add to your social media to-do list.

And if hearing "Instagram added a new feature" makes you just want to lie down and take a nap. Then this post is for you.

Everyone, including our cousin once-removed's friend, just loves to tell us ALL the things we should be doing, ALL the channels we need to be on, and ALL the tips & tricks we need to try.

"Eeermagad, what do you mean you're not on Tik Tok??"  

The truth bomb is you don't have to do it all.   You don't have to be on every channel.   

If you got cash flowing in and you can afford to do it all - then go for it!   But if cash is tight, then you got to make some choices. Because being present on a channel takes time, energy and money $$.

Trying to be everywhere and do everything will only leave you...
