Happy that I discovered The Daily Post WordPress challenges. They’re inspiring. The photo this week of a Vancouver beach really caught my eye. The photo and post is about Textures.
I adore when textures come through in photographs and art. I like when you can see them with the naked eye. I love when you can feel them with a light touch to a work of art.
Normally I would post this on a different blog. It’s about the powerful emotional punch of a single photo so I thought it’d make for a good Instagram quick tip.
With Instagram it’s about the picture & the hashtags. Research the hashtags, keep them relevant and post photos that evoke your emotions. If you feel it, visitors will too. Using hashtags relating to your picture will bring you happy visitors; tricking people won’t.
Step right up! Get your followers here. Hurry time is running out.
Social Media Followers Hint…
Simple; quality ALWAYS beats quantity! It’s interesting, the lengths people go to frantically trying to boost the number of followers they have on social media.
Whoa! Slow down! It isn’t about the number of social media followers you have. It’s about building a loyal following of people that share your interests. Social media is about engaging with real people. Particularly true if you’re hoping to communicate and grow your local customer base.
Content is key! Always has been, always will be. Provide info of value, of interest to your niche, post consistently and your quality list of followers will grow naturally.
Nurture relationships with social media followers and those you are following.
Please don’t spam! Provide 8 interesting, helpful, funny, relevant posts for every 2 advertisements.
BUZZ! BUZZ! My mind is a buzz with so many social media buzz words. Maybe it’s time for a little breather? Hmmm I wonder. Does blogging my little social media rant count? It’s a slippery slope.
I’ve decided that I’m allowing myself 140 words then no more #SocialMedia speak. How best to summarize? Must think carefully. I’ve already reached the halfway mark.
So, what’s been happening on the social media front this month? EVERYTHING!!! If I had to narrow it down to the top three buzz words being bantered around on social media I would have to say video, video and more video.
Eeeek only 27 words left to. April’s been a busy month in social media. Many exciting changes but at the same time WOW the energy it takes keeping up.
