Snapchat used to be the darling of the Social Media world but has lost its edge. A platform where your content is fleeting which created a frenzy of activity when you posted it. Instead of sticking with what works Snapchat tried to become too much and has diluted its brand until it is now just a second-rate platform trying to combine Flipboard, Facebook, and Instagram. In the meantime, Instagram caught up and passed Snapchat in functionality and design. So now Snapchat is shedding followers and Instagram is gaining. Here are 5 reasons to leave Snapchat and concentrate on Instagram for your brand.
There are plenty of people who have some amazing numbers when it comes to Instagram. I have looked through tons of them and found some real gems of information for you, compiling them in one place. Check out what these experts say about using Instagram to the fullest potential possible.
Of course, the best way to grow any social media audience is with new, relevant and timely content. For Instagram that means pictures and videos that appeal to your target demographic. You may need some market research to find out what your audience is looking for on Instagram and to maximize your impact. Here are some other tips for growing your Instagram followers.
With over 800 million active monthly users, Instagram is the 6th largest Social Media Network by volume. It is also one of the fastest growing, appealing to a wide audience and bringing a diverse offering to the table. What do we need to know about Instagram as marketers and small business owners? This week we will take a deeper look at this visual platform and how it can boost your business.
I hope you all have been enjoying the posts, infographics, and knowledge I have been passing on to you good folks. Today I’d like to talk about what a business coach can do for you. Small business owners wear many hats and are expected to know every aspect of business. Of course, it isn’t realistic and that’s where I come in. I help fill in the gaps so all those important things don’t fall through the cracks. Social media, marketing, sales processes, customer support, business plans, content management can all have an impact on a business’s success but is a ton for a small group or individual to manage. Some clients need advice, some need training, some just need me to get the job done for them. I am a force multiplier for small businesses helping them get more done than they could do by themselves. Of course my first consult is free (otherwise how do we know if I can help) and it isn’t meaningless fluff, you will walk away with usable information even if we aren’t a fit. Give me a call and get your business the help it deserves. (435) 554-8209 https://www.facebook.com/mybusinessadviser/
A great tip for time management is to take a break. I recommend a 10 minute break every hour for maximum concentration and keeping your best foot forward. Sometimes that isn’t possible but you are doing yourself and your business a disservice if you are taking no breaks at all. Reduced concentration, decreased productivity, elevated levels of anxiety and depression are just some of the rewards you get for not taking a break. Super busy and need to maximize the effectiveness of your break? Check out the infographic for tips on just that.
Tools can make out lives easier if we use them right. Time Management is already tough enough but if we don’t have the right tools it can be even tougher. So what are the right tools? First off you need a calendar. I use the phrase, “I live and die by my calendar” to stress the importance of it. If an item isn’t on my calendar it isn’t going to get done. I pride my self on a flexible schedule that meets my client’s needs but I can’t flex it if I don’t know when and where my commitments are at all times.
