Social media isn’t for the faint-hearted. With the sheer mass of updates, shared content, ads, and billions of users it’s virtually impossible to always be available at the right time. And this is where social automation plays its role so well.
It allows you to be seen, without being actively online...
Happy Monday, people! Remember last week when I told you I’d have a follow-up to Friday’s Q&A with Alissa Trumbull?
Well, I wasn’t lying. Presenting the lovely Jade Phillips.
Refresher: Jade is the other have of #BizGalz, a weekly Twitter chat that tackles the issues in career and life no one is talking about, but ones women are dying to know and understand deeper. Such things as how to effectively use social media to land a J-O-B, what it’s really like doing PR, and how women actually need to be supported in their career. It’s good stuff.
We live in a society that praises selflessness and giving. So much so, that when we picture someone who is selfish, we tend to reduce them to an image of greed, lack of gratitude and all out grinch.
Instead of being presented as two halves
I’ve been working in marketing for just over 3 years now and I’ve also been an athlete from the age of 15. So, you could say that my career path hasn’t been the most traditional! As much as I love training, I know that one day my body will say “enough is enough”. I knew that I wanted to work beyond the health and fitness industry but I had no idea what direction I wanted to go in.
Social media can be a handful. Especially if you’re running a start-up and the marketing, social media and other duties are being handled by me, myself and I. While I do believe that social media is a valuable asset that should be invested in, we all have to start somewhere.
You don’t need mega bucks to be successful on social – really, you don’t. Some of the best campaigns are those that have spent sparsely but wisely. If this is your current situation, what you need is a plan.
So for all of those who have just started to build their empire, this one is for you.
There are just so many of them.
I don’t just mean rules in the writing world. I’m talking about rules at home, college, work and even industry rules. It literally feels like everywhere we turn there’s someone waiting to say no.
Don’t get me wrong, I completely understand that boundaries are necessary, especially in the realm of writing. But, what if people just bent the rules occasionally?
Joining a new social network is never easy. It’s almost like starting a new school. You’re worried about what to say, where to go and who to make friends with.
Twitter can definitely feel like that at first. With the amount of content that’s published, it’s very difficult to be heard and valued. But hey, we all have to start somewhere!
A picture really is worth thousand words. Times have changed and words alone just aren’t enough. Sometimes, your message needs that extra bit of expression that words can’t quite capture.
With the sheer amount of photography, infographics, GIFs and even video streaming across social media – marketing has undoubtable become much more visual, especially on Twitter.
So, remember when 140 characters just isn’t cutting it, there are plenty of other options!
It’s no secret that I enjoy connecting with new people on Twitter. Even more so, I really love talking to people who share my passions during Twitter chats. They present us with an amazing opportunity to meet individuals that are scattered across the world & learn from professionals in our field.
There are so many Twitter chats to choose from; they will all have a unique community, different pace, various formats and even guest appearances. There’s only one constant with Twitter chats.
How much do you know about your online presence and influence? With all of the noise on social media, measuring your impact across industries can be quite a challenge. Whilst there are plenty of tools that enable you to listen, schedule & post across a variety of channels, what about a program that could indicate where your opinion is most valued? If this is something that you’ve been looking for, here’s an awesome new tool to help you.
Content is like an engine. Not just any engine, I mean the jet propelling, rocket-fuelled type. Not only does content drive prospective customers to your website, it’s also an opportunity to establish your voice as a knowledgeable professional in your industry. But, as more and more content is produced (there are 42.6 million new WordPress blogs published every month*) curation is quickly becoming as significant as creation.
Twitter can be an amazing resource for any individual, or business.
There’s a constant stream of conversation and information for you to tap into and the development of Twitter chats has made this even more accessible. There are so many ways that businesses and individuals can benefit from these online Q&A sessions – here are my top 5 reasons that people should take advantage of Twitter chats:

We’ve all been the newbie at some stage. When I tried yoga for the first time I pretty much spent the first few classes ‘uming’ and ‘ahhing’ over how amazing the experienced yogis were. The language the instructor was using to describe each pose was completely alien to me and (while I wanted to be like those women at the front of the class) I had no idea how to turn myself from runner to super yoga master.
Joining any social media network for the first time can feel pretty similar.
