Instagram Challenge

Instagram Challenge – FREE

I just started running a Free Instagram Challenge over in my Facebook Group.

I wanted to help more businesses get more consistent with posting on their social media and get more comfortable with it. Instagram can be a fabulous place to build new relationships and get more eyes on your products or services.

Instagram is a very visual platform, so your images on there will need to stand out.

When is the best time to post on Instagram?

There isn’t a best time really, it depends on your audience and what times you think they’re most likely to be hanging out on Instagram. For me, it’s during school hours when mums are busy working on their business and then again in the evenings when the children are in bed. But I also post at other times, to catch other audiences.

As long as you are posting on Instagram consistently, then you’ll start attracting new people.

Do hashtags really make a difference?

Errrrrm YEAH! If you’re not using hashtags in every single post, then you’re missing out on your posts showing up in peoples feeds.

You will want to vary your hashtags and use them daily. I generally spend a bit of time every couple of weeks (or so) doing a little hashtag research. I will show people how to do this in my Facebook Group where the Free Instagram Challenge is taking place. It’s really pretty simple. You can join the group HERE.

How do I help businesses with their social media?

I probably don’t advertise enough, i am generally posting tips for other businesses to make use of. So here is a little information on how i help businesses grow on social media.

I provide various services, anything from a social media review at just £49, to content packages for your chosen social media platforms right through to running your social media. I also provide a blogging service.

Every business has a different budget and I try and accommodate their budget. As with anything, you get what you pay for. If you pay me a review, that’s what you get – a review. You won’t get a marketing calendar for that.

If you pay me hundreds of pounds, i will make sure your social media is consistent, spot on, marketed to your target audience and answer all comments and queries.

If you’d like to work with me, add me on Linkedin Here and then message me once I accept our request.

Why is this content course so cheap?

I have been in business for 7 years now and grew This Page from scratch with pure content. It’s still growing today.

Why so cheap? I was a small business once with a small budget and couldn’t afford all the courses that were available. So I decided I wanted to make an incredible offer to people over Christmas and New Year.

I’m a single mum and who hasn’t quite ‘made it’ but i’m doing well and want to share how I have done it. If all you can really afford is £10, then that’s cool. If you can afford more, please donate a little more.

5 Marketing Tips

Here are 5 marketing tips that every business large or small should master. We all want to grow our businesses and make the right decisions for it, but it can be hard with so much conflicting information out there. Most businesses hardest part is finding their customers/clients. If it was easy, we’d all be successful right?

What is Marketing?

In a nutshell, as Kotler and Armstrong said: Marketing is the social process by which individuals and organizations obtain what they need and want through creating and exchanging value with others.

The process by which companies create value for customers and build strong customer relationships in order to capture value from customers in return.

My 5 Best Marketing Tips

  1. Firstly, marketing starts by understanding your customers. Once you understand them, you learn how to best talk to them and where to market to them. That’s how those all important relationships are built.
  2. Understand that marketing is an ongoing process, a daily process that you don’t give up on.
  3. Find where your customers are and then market to them. That’s where number one comes in, you understand your customers, find where they are and then build relationships with them by effectively marketing to them.
  4. Invest in some amazing content. Don’t try and ‘fudge it’ and guess. Speak to someone like me and get help. You could waste years in business doing it wrong. My Content Packages are a hit and go down well.
  5. Lastly keep learning. Learn what’s current, keep up to date and master these marketing tips. Find people in your industry who are on top and see what they’re doing.

Marketing isn’t easy, it can feel relentless at times, consistency is key and keeping on top of trends is valuable too.

You don’t have to be everywhere, you just have to be where your clients are. Show up and be seen online. If you need help with your content, Contact Me here and let’s talk. My passion is growing businesses and helping them create relationships with their audience.

5 Marketing Ideas to Ramp Up Your Social Media

5 Marketing Ideas to Ramp Up Your Social Media

Marketing ideas, we all want more of those right? Sometimes our mind draws a bank and you’re left with a head full of empty nothing. So i wanted to give you a few ideas that might get those creative juices flowing. marketing ideas

Easy marketing ideas that anyone can implement.

So you want more eyeballs on your social media platforms? Here are 5 marketing ideas to start growing your audience:

  1. Schedule your posts to reach a wider audience. Schedule a couple to post out during the middle of the night, to reach other countries, who may have only just put their kids to bed and are ready to sit down and browse through Facebook.
  2. Create different graphic sizes for different platforms. The 2 graphics in this post are sizes for Instagram and twitter. The twitter graphic is far smaller than the Instagram one.
  3. Here is a good one. Review your insights in both Facebook and Twitter and see what works. Grab a coffee and see what performed really well and at what times. Then find/create content based upon that. You have to have a strategy when it comes to your social media, without it you are constantly ‘fudging it’
  4. Vary your posts. Don’t (definitely don’t) just put links to your products or blog. Give helpful hints and tips, post great quotes and don’t forget those posts that are all about engagement. Ask your audience questions, find a funny meme.
  5. Last but not least, make your favourite quotes into graphics. People are visual creatures, they like to see. So create eye catching graphics or get someone to that for you (i of course can do that for you) marketing ideas

Recap

I hope these marketing ideas have helped you think of a few new posts you can post to your social media platforms. With social media, you simply need to be a little creative, be consistent and engage with your audience, don’t leave them hanging. Just by making some small changes, you could see a massive increase in what is going on across your social media platforms.
