Pinterest has released some exciting new updates which will allow your business account to pack a punch. First, I want to remind you to take a look at my previous post The Power of Pinterest. These are points I covered with the ACCP – Association of Club Catering Professionals at the national conference. Review this post before watching today’s video and learning about these updates. You’ll have a much better understanding of why these current updates are SO awesome!
How many of you have ever said, “I don’t have time for social media?”
While training my clients to use social media, I am often asked the question, “Why do people use hashtags? Are they effective?” Hashtags can seem to be an entirely different language sometimes. While the hashtag originated in Twitter, it soon migrated over to Instagram and then became active on Facebook. We seem to have picked up this habit in our spoken language, as is evident in this popular (and very funny) video by Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake: http://youtu.be/57dzaMaouXA
Last week I promised you a view of the new Twitter Profile and a tutorial for how to make Twitter lists. Please be patient with me as this is my first attempt to record activity on my computer screen!
When I speak with students and student-athletes, I often ask the question, “How many of you have a LinkedIn account?” I am always shocked by how few people raise their hands. So with graduation approaching, and thousands of young adults about to enter the professional world, I was inspired to create a helpful guide, “5 Social Media Tips for Graduates”. It’s ready to share with students and student-athletes who need to clean up their social media accounts and online profile.
It’s July! Half the year has flown by already, and we find ourselves with two months of summer on our hands. Members and their families go on vacation, students are not on campus, and we may even have vacations of our own to look forward to in July and August. Even if we maintain a busy schedule, I hope we can agree that summer is the perfect time to take a pause and hit the reset button on your strategic communication plans.
As an early adopter of social media, I have enjoyed my fair share of ups and downs, trials and tribulations. (But more so, joy and success!) I share with you best practices and strategic advice, but I don’t often share my biggest mistakes. Well, this week, you are in luck! I’m sharing with you my biggest social media mistake.
