The New Insta-Trend: Shareable Graphics

You’ve seen them, we’ve all seen them.

They’re fun, well-branded + addictive to boot. But only the “big” gals on the ‘Gram or the web design gurus seem to be creating them.

You know what I’m talking about: The Instagram Story Shareables.

The fun game trending on Instagram that allows users to share their content by having their followers fill in the blanks to random q’s, play “this or that” and answer other pieces that allow their own followers to get to know them better.

Here’s why I personally love the Shareables:

1. A Fun Way to Survey Your Peeps

I love seeing what the gals in my heart are up to, what they want to see more of + what they’re probably a little sick and tired of. It will not only make you a better content creator, but a better biz boss too!

2. Allows Your Community to Share Your Visuals

Not only are you creating something of value for your tribe, but you’re also participating in a...

Why I Love Trello to Batch Content

If you read my last blog post  you know how much I love Trello and all of its incredible abilities. It honestly makes my business (+ life!) so much saner.

But one thing I didn’t touch on that I feel all of you beautiful people have to know about? How it helps me batch content and in-turn simplifies my marketing process. It’s like gold!

A few things I batch on my bae, Trello:

1. Social Media

I love batching my social media posts on Trello (I link to another platform I love, AirTable!).

It allows me to plan out my online marketing efforts ahead of time and see what I should be funneling into my goals for the month. Not to mention once you have team members, it’ll make their lives a million times easier! You can ask my girl, Kayli.

2. Blog Posts + Newsletters

Trello is a fabulous place to keep track of monthly tasks you have such as curating blog posts for your site and newsletters to go out to your tribe! I label this my...

This may seem rudimentary, but friends!? I never realized...

How to Create Your Facebook Group Cover in Canva

Your Facebook group cover is the VERY first thing new members will see when they click over to learn more about your group.

Does it communicate with clarity, cohesion (and class) what your group is all about?

If not, it’s time for us to get your cover connecting and converting for you! Pinky promise it’s easier than you think! Your group is not just another Facebook group - so don’t you dare look it!

1. Write your copy FIRST

In a previous post, How Facebook groups can seriously change your business, I talk about the importance of being clear about the purpose of your group and how it will benefit both you and your members.

It’s important to be clear on who your group is for, and what members can expect to learn from you.

In her course, Fab FB groups, Caitlin Bacher teaches about having a clear hook and valuable freebie exclusive for members.

Having a really good plan in writing (or a google doc) will help you know what copy will go in your graphic.

How Facebook Groups Can Change Your Biz

Facebook groups — chances are you’re apart of many, and participate in a few, but don’t have your own.

And to that I ask: Why the heck not, gorgeous??

Hosting your own Facebook group is a fabulous way to engage genuinely with your tribe, showcase what you do best and gain new clients who already know they love your work!

Sound great but still scrambling around aimlessly wondering how to do yours right so people actually want to stick around?

Let’s have a chat.

1. Remember This Is Your First Impression

For many people, your Facebook group will be their first impression of you and how you present yourself is extremely important. Before you start spreading the word about your new (incredible) Facebook Group, make sure you:

  •  Have your graphics in order + polished.
  • Have a clear “about” written so people know what exactly they’ll gain from joining.
  • Get clear on a posting schedule that works not just for your schedule, but for your business...

How to Make Facebook Great Again

Facebook has a bad rep these days.

A lot of what everyone’s saying is true: It can be majorly pay-to-play with the new algorithm changes, the constant barrage of “sell, sell, sell!” on your newsfeed can cause overwhelm and you may be thinking, “Do people even see my posts anymore?”

That being said, I still love Facebook and think it can be used as a great business tool for many reasons...when people utilize it correctly.

Here are a few ways I personally keep my Facebook mojo on the good-time train.

#1: I Go Live

Letting people see your beautiful face in business is a complete must! I’ve found that people want to see the human behind the screen and really relate to who they are, what they have to offer and get a peek into what their brand is like before they make a buying decision. If anything, going live is also a way to meet and network with boss babes who you may not have met otherwise! That’s a score in my book.

#2: I Keep Things...

How to Bring in Leads Through Instagram

I’m going to let you in on a little secret of mine: Instagram is my all-time fave marketing platform.

When I browse the feed it feels like a midday coffee break and when I indulge in others Instagram Stories it feels like a behind the scenes business sesh. But honestly? Growing your own Instagram can be hard work!

Between their ever-changing algorithms, the sky-high expectation of a perfect aesthetic and the wanting to show enough behind-the-scenes to look real but never enough to show all of the “oh-my-word” moments, it can be a struggle!

That’s why today I wanted to share some Instagram tips I’ve accumulated...because us boss babes need to stick together, right?

Tip #1: Go for the Goal

Like anything you do for your business, you should go in with your desired outcome in mind. What’s your goal for hopping on Insta? Getting more customers? Showing your potential clients how amazing you are? Growing your tribe of femmepreneurs? All of the...
