What You Can Do To Improve My Social Media Profiles

If you’re looking to improve or make changes to your social media profiles, here are a few tips to get you started.

  • Ensure you have the same colours for your branding across all your social media profiles.
  • Also ensure all your bios across your platforms have the same description.
  • Post DAILY!
  • Post not just daily, but post RELATIVE content daily.
  • Research your competitors and see what they’re doing. Don’t steal their work, but re-work it to make it fit in with your business and message.
  • Reply to peoples comments, make them feel valued.
  • Remember the 80/20 rule. 80% of your content should be NON salesy. It could be a survey/poll, a motivational/inspirational quote, a coffee/good morning message. Anything that Relates to your ideal client. The 20% should be product/service based content and links to blog posts. You can also include posts like ‘Do you prefer the black one or the red one’ type posts. This is a non direct way of selling. Try it, it really works. Oh… and try forget to have fun with it.

These tips are for those that don’t really know social media or those that simply want to try and be more consistent on their social media profiles and want to make more of an effort in growing and nurturing their social media.

Give your social media some TLC and eventually it will start paying you back. It takes time though, lots of love and care and I can’t stress enough – lots of CONSISTENCY. You’ve got this, keep at it.

Reading books relevant to your field will help your brain create new content too. Give that a try. I have endless books on my shelves that still need reading. I probably need to make me time for that if anything!!

Using Social Media For Business

It seems strange that there was ever a time that we weren’t using social media for business. Social media is no longer an option and every business should be using social media for their business.

Using Social Media For Business Successfully

Here are some sure fire ways on how you can use social media for your business in an effective way.

Regular Content for social media

Whichever social media platforms you decide to use for your business, be sure you’re posting great content and Regularly. You may be absolutely fed up with the word ‘consistency’ but i’m afraid it’s a word you’ll see a lot of in the business world. Using social media the right way is a bit of a skill, so let’s get it right.

Which platform are you going to hang out on?

Have you decided where you’re going to be hanging out online? Will it be Facebook? Twitter? Pinterest? etc etc… The list can go on. My suggestion – choose two platforms and get really good at those, then start exploring other platforms. I never recommend being on all platforms and spreading yourself too thinly and then not having the time to put great content out there consistently on every platform. How are you using social media now? Something to think about.

Time block for success

Pretty much my biggest success is time blocking. I time block an hour for content creation, half an hour for posting and interacting on social media, half an hour for email lists etc. This works brilliantly and helps me stay productive and i work less hours from time blocking.

To Do lists

Get used to To Do lists, they are a life saver. It’s a good idea to do a list the day before of what you want to achieve the day before. This way, when you wake up, you know exactly what you are doing and can crack on. On the days i haven’t woken up to a ready and waiting list, i spend at least an hour writing a list, then don’t feel so productive. Make using social media for your business easy and efficient.

I’m a pen to paper girl and I have my list sat in front of me on my desk and tick off when i have completed a task. Find what works for you.

I do hope these social media tips will help you get better at working using social media and start making you more money.
