Social Media Nightmares and How To Avoid Them

Social Media Nightmares and How To Avoid Them

Nightmares are scary and making mistakes happen, but when you make mistakes on Social Media, the whole world seems to find out!

Here are a couple of mistakes people are making daily on social media and how you can avoid them.

  • Typo’s, spelling mistakes and grammar. Well we all make spelling mistakes when we are rushing or reading back on content too quickly whilst checking for errors before sending it out. You need to take time out and re-read your content before throwing it out there (what are the chances i publish this and there is a typo in this blog post now lol) Grammar, seriously this is my massive bug bear. People can’t get their there, they’re and their’s right and stuff like that makes my blood boil a bit. If you’re in business, you need to be getting these minor things right. If you are dyslexic or have a problem of that nature, maybe consider someone else to write your copy?

  • Public annoyances or awkward customers. I don’t believe there is such a thing as a customer base that is 100% satisfied, mistakes happen on the business side of things and sometimes a customer just isn’t happy. What do you do? You take a massive breath (or two) and calmly deal with this customer. They may be writing all over your social media platforms complaining and moaning, all you can do is try and calm them down and if you were in the wrong, own up to your mistake. Do NOT get into an argument with a customer, they’ll never be your customer again if you do. Try and take the conversation offline if you can or to email, where nobody else will see the grumpy customers words.

Schedule Your Day ~ Why Business Owners Must Schedule

Schedule Your Day ~ Why Business Owners Must Schedule.

Are you running around like a loon day to day, getting your work done in snippets, snatching time here and there? Yep, been there and done that, but not anymore, (well maybe sometimes)

Gone are the days when i am running around like a headless chicken, i now have a fancy diary and write in it with the jobs i need to achieve and if i’m really good i’ll even schedule my day hour by hour and it always amazes me how much i get done on the days i am super organised.  I even schedule in my house chores too if i know things need doing and it’s going to be a busy day.

How Will You Schedule Your Day?

There are a bunch of online schedulers, it all depends on what your preference is. I am a pen to paper kinda girl, but some of you may prefschedule your dayer an online schedular, here is a list of some that are available.

Ask yourself these questions:

How do i balance work/family life?

How do i stop putting off things i don’t want to do?

How to i increase productivity?

These are just a few of the questions entrepreneurs ask themselves and some of you have been in business a while, but i bet you’re still asking those questions some days right? The answer is simple, schedule your day and the questions will start answering themselves. Being a little organised can go a long way, take it from me, who can easily go from one project to the next without finishing any of them. Not now though, if i say i am writing a blog, i finish the blog. If i say i am designing 5 images, then that’s what i do.

Schedule Your Day ladies and gents and get productive.

Use Top Instagram Hashtags To Get More Followers and Sales.

wanting to know which topmost Instagram hashtags are current and new i guess? Ok, so there are a couple of sites that you can check which instagram hashtags rank highly. Top Hashtags (my preferred one) is one company and another is Top Like Tags.

These sites will help you choose which tags are best to use and which top instagram hashtags are current in your niche. You want to be using popular hashtags in your niche, so that you gain targeted followers, ultimately we want to sell to people who want our services right?

We’re in the social media marketing business, so very unlikely to target people who love pizza.

To get you started, here are the current (as of today) most used top Instagram hashtags.
