I’ve got some BIG NEWS for you. In 2018 both Tailwind and Later have released the ability to auto-post to Instagram, and it’s coming soon to other schedulers as well, like Buffer. That means no more notifications like, “It’s time to post!”
Halleh-freakin-llujah. It’s about time!
If you’re anything like me, you’re lucky if you have time to set up and schedule posts for Instagram (or any other platform). You might not also have time to post it yourself at the time scheduled, for platforms that don’t allow automatic posting.
If you’re sitting over there, staring at the screen and thinking, ‘what–scheduled times? I just post it whenever I can! Why do scheduled times matter?’ or ‘How do you find the best time to post on Instagram and how do you implement that?’ Then I’m so glad you found this post, because I’m going to walk you through it!
I’m going to show you how to schedule auto-posts to Instagram, specifically with Tailwind and Later, because those are the two I’ve been using since they released this feature.Read More
If you're a business owner (big or small), an entrepreneur, a solopreneur, a freelancer, or just consider yourself someone with a side-hustle, you're probably trying to figure out all the ways to to drive traffic to your online home base: your website.
You probably already know there is thing platform called Pinterest, and everyone is on it, but what are they doing with it? How does it work? Where on earth do you start??
Maybe you have a brand new account and you don't know how to grow a following, or if you should even grow a following?! (Do followers even matter on Pinterest??)
Maybe you have an old account, but you aren't sure what to do with it, or how to make it work for you.
Whatever the case, if you're not utilizing Pinterest for Business, you're missing out on a huge traffic driver, second only to Google (for me). In fact, Google & Pinterest alternate between 1st and 2nd in the largest traffic driving sources for my own website.
So, on that note, let's talk about how to start using Pinterest for your business.Read More
Having a good Instagram bio is so important, and for businesses, having a link in the bio is KEY.
As you go along throughout the year though, you may find that you are changing out your URL as needed, linking to a sales page for a new launch, or changing to your shop page when you have a sale, etc.
Here's why that's not productive:
When your audience gets nosey, and they likely will (I do!), they'll scroll through your whole gallery if they are really that interested (and have the time). What happens if they stumble upon a post from a year ago that refers to a URL "link in bio!" that is no longer there?? Oops!
Aside from that, in business it's always good to have more than 1 option available to you.
Today I'm going to teach you the simplest of How To's. A 5-minute step that will give you more control over that URL, and put more links in your Instagram Bio.
