summertime + social media

             Now that June is almost behind us, the frenzy of spring event season is giving way to the summer slowdown. It’s easy to let the heat (and lack of orders) dampen your motivation. But slower months are the perfect time to ramp up your social media marketing efforts. The buzz surrounding Facebook keeps growing and there’s no limit to what you might find (Kat just won a $20 gift card!).

             So what do your customers want to see from your Facebook site? An updated portfolio of your latest work! Don’t forget to showcase all your talents (and this spring’s big events) on your photo page.

             Regular posting is also important. If you’re not sure when or how often, start by adding a posting schedule to your weekly to do list (aim for twice a week). Consistent posts keep you front and center with your customers.

             Keeping track of inspiration helps too (when writer’s block sets in). Try keeping a folder on your desktop filled with future ideas, websites to link or designs you love to pull from to make posting effortless and fun (like we do for Styl-ish!).

             Going back to Kat’s recent winnings (from Facebook), small giveaways or gift cards are a great incentive for people to watch your page. Try a simple trivia question rewarding the quickest answer via Facebook. This not only helps your page traffic, but increases foot traffic, too.
