Hype medias

@pollingersocial shared some interesting insta stats last week from Instagram. Firstly, 80% of people on Instagram follow at least one business. Secondly, over 200 million users visit at least one business profile on Instagram everyday. This highlights the value of promoting your business on Instagram, especially if your audience is: a) under 40. b) a Mum. c) a lifestyle brand. Getting the most from Stories, Hashtags and having a killer bio are just some of the ways to succeed. All of which I can help you with. ๐Ÿ˜Š Pop me a DM and we can work out a plan. ......................................................................... #smallbusinesscirencester #indiebiz #socialmediatraining #socialmediaworkshops #socialmedi #onlinebusinesstips #socialmediamarketing #contentmarketing #smallbusinessowner #socialmedia #socialmediamanager #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer #socialmediatraining #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks #smallbizsupport #instagramcontent #marketingstrategist

Nailed this one. ๐Ÿ‘Œ I wonder if Ottolenghi needs an assistant? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚ On a more serious note, the children return to school today, I've already had one meeting with Ting at the lovely @temple_mama, I'm excited to get stuck into some new projects and to be working with some new clients. My new school term resolution is to keep you all updated more and to start sharing some useful social media tips once again. ๐Ÿฎ Whilst finding the time to tackle some nice recipes from my new book. ๐Ÿ˜Š Happy Monday! #oneoff #rarelyhappens #triumphoverdisaster #cirencester #socialmediatips #socialmediatrainer #socialmediamanager

How quickly do you scroll through your newsfeed ?๐Ÿ“ฑ Pretty quickly?? If so, how, as a business can you stand out in the feed to stop someone scrolling past?? Here are 3 things that have worked for me: ๐Ÿ’กCreate a nice catchy headline that gets people thinking. ๐Ÿ’กUse a video (like I have here). Moving images stand out! ๐Ÿ’กUse a carousel of images or graphics, people are nosey and will be tempted to scroll right.. . #smallbusinesscirencester #indiebiz #socialmediatraining #socialmediaworkshops #socialmediatips #onlinebusinesstips #socialmediamarketing #contentmarketing #smallbusinessowner #socialmedia #socialmediamanager #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer #socialmediatraining #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks #smallbizsupport #instagramcontent #marketingstrategist

Competitions on Facebook work!โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € For a fairly new page they can work really well to grow your community or to increase your engagement on an established page.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € My top tips are: โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ’ก Keep them easy to enter e.g. like the page and comment below. The comment can be an answer to a simple question e.g what is you favourite ice cream flavour? โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ’ก Keep the prize broad and fairly generous to appeal to as many people as possible. e.g. vouchers or a free meal. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ’ก Make sure you look up (Google) the most recent competition rules for Facebook as they can change. You don't want them to ban you! E.g you are not allowed to ask people to share your page! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ’ก Put your T&C's in the Notes section on Facebook so people can access them. I have a great T&C's template that you have. DM with your email address and I'll send it over. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #smallbusinesscirencester #socialmediatraining #socialmediaworkshops #socialmediatips #socialmediamarketing #contentmarketing #smallbusinessowner #socialmedia #socialmediamanager #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer #socialmediatraining # #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks #smallbizsupport #instagramcontent #marketingstrategist

"I don't mind responding I'm just struggling to know what to post" โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Sound familiar? โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Constantly thinking about new ideas for content is EXHAUSTING unless you have the right tools, strategies in place. Here 4 of the ways I find content: โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 1. Spy on your industry. What are other businesses putting out there? What are your competitors doing? Follow their pages, add them to a private Twitter list. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 2. Think about what's trending, what's in the news and link it to your content if relevant. I'm not a fan of awareness days e.g National Hot Cross Bun Day unless they are relevant to your audience as everyone seems to use them and they can get repetitive in the feed!โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 3. Hub Spot has a great blog ideas generator which is great for ideas. Type in a word and see what results come back. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 4. Type your topic into the search in Pinterest and look at what the word bubbles say. E.g. Gardening = gardening tips, how to create an autumn flower boarder etc.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Feel free to post your tools and tips below as I'm always looking for new ways to find content. ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #smallbusinesscirencester #socialmediatraining #socialmediaworkshops #socialmediatips #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks #growyourbusiness #learning #trainingโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #cirencesterbusiness #swindonbusiness #gloucestershirebusiness #wiltshirebusiness #cotswoldbusinessโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #smallbizlife โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #socialmediamadeeasy โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #socialmediaconsultant โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #socialmediahelpโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #socialmediaguru

Do you use emojis in your business posts?โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I personally love emojis and rarely post without them because they can:โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โœ”๏ธBreak up text. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โœ”๏ธKeep your captions short by keeping copy down.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โœ”๏ธConvey emotion. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โœ”๏ธQuickly tell the reader what the caption is about.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Are they appropriate for your customers/ industry?โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € If so, always use them in the right context and keep them relevant to the message. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ’ก TIP 1: If you're worried about using them, check out what your competitors are doing.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ’ก TIP 2: Use emojipedia.org to search for and copy emojis to add to your posts.

Q. Have you ever booked onto a new training course? Bought tickets to a new event? Bought a new product and received a benefit in return? I once booked a place at a new conference and received a free iPod! It felt good! ๐Ÿค— The social media platforms do the same. If they release a new feature, make sure you use it as they reward early adopters through pushing your content out further to show off that new feature. Its a great way for your business to get in front of new people. #smallbusinesscirencester #indiebiz #socialmediatraining #socialmediaworkshops #socialmediatips #onlinebusinesstips #socialmediamarketing #contentmarketing #smallbusinessowner #socialmedia #socialmediamanager #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer #socialmediatraining #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks #smallbizsupport #instagramcontent #marketingstrategist

IGTV now allows landscape video!!

What is the algorithm?โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € It's a piece of coding on the platform that filters the content in your home feed based on what it asses you should see as opposed to seeing everything in chronological order. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Why is this a problem for businesses? โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € The algorithm makes it harder for businesses to get content out to their followers unless they pay for it. It's a way of the platforms being able to monetise the activity for brands. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing some useful information about the algorithm to help your social media succeed. Why not message me with a specific question? โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #socialmediatraining #socialmediaworkshops #socialmediatips #socialmediamarketing #contentmarketing #smallbusinessowner #socialmedia #socialmediamanager #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer #socialmediatraining # #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks #smallbusinesscirencester

What is a hashtag? It's a label which helps you file/ search for a topic.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Which platforms use hashtags?โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € You can use/search/follow #'s on LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Why should I use #'s in my posts/ stories? It helps them get seen by a greater number of people who follow the # rather than following you.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #smallbusinesscirencester #socialmediatraining #socialmediaworkshops #socialmediatips #socialmediamarketing #contentmarketing #smallbusinessowner #socialmedia #socialmediamanager #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer #socialmediatraining # #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks

I often get asked by businesses ' which is the best type of content to post?' and my answer is to start with a mix of content types to see what your audience prefers then focus on that content a little more than the rest. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I have also created a little info-graphic for you to consider when thinking about which content formats to use. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € With the rise of audio (like podcasts) it will be interesting to see where this will feature. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € People seem to like the way you can consume this content passively whilst doing other things. I'd like say it's at the gym for me but I genuinely can't remember the last time I went. Oh dear! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #smallbusinesscirencester #socialmediatraining #infographic #digitalengagement #socialmediaworkshops #socialmediatips #socialmediamarketing #contentmarketing #smallbusinessowner #socialmedia #socialmediamanager #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer #socialmediatraining # #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks

Not strictly an Easter Bunny but The Hare has a great significance in Cirencester. In 1971, a Roman mosaic bearing a hare was found in Cirencester and is now the symbol of the Corinium Museum in Cirencester where the mosaic is now housed. The hares are spotted throughout the town in art and the buildings. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Brown hare numbers have declined across other areas of the country due to loss of their natural habitats, yet they are thriving in the Cotswolds.

The Algorithm favours 'engagement' โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 1. Posts that are: liked, commented on (with a meaningful comment) and shared. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 2. Posts that receive lots of clicks.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € *Tip 1: โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Pay attention to your posts, and try to replicate the success of those posts getting lots of engagement. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € *Tip 2: โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Engage with others posts as well encouraging engagement on your own posts.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #smallbusinesscirencester #socialmediatraining #socialmediaworkshops #socialmediatips #socialmediamarketing #contentmarketing #smallbusinessowner #socialmedia #socialmediamanager #socialmediacoach #socialmediatrainer #socialmediatraining # #cirencester #cotswolds #cirencesterrocks #amyable
