Modesty vs Marketing on Strong and Worthy

Modesty vs. Marketing: Online Networking Tips for Women

Originally posted to our private facebook group, Connect! for Entrepreneurial Women. For online marketing tips, connection to entrepreneurial women around the world, and inspiration just like this, be sure to join us here.

As women, we are taught from an early age to be modest. We are expected to downplay and not “brag” about ourselves or our accomplishments too much. We are told people will find it somehow offensive or distasteful. So, we learn to clam up.

As adult women running businesses, we tend to carry those beliefs forward into our professional lives.

Sadly, when our time comes to shine, we shy away from opportunities to take the spotlight, even though stepping into it would help our businesses grow.

3 Automation Tips for Twitter

3 Automation Tips for Twitter

Do you automate your Twitter posts? While convenient, there are some good reasons to be mindful when considering automation.

Twitter is big on engagement.

As such, one major faux pas is to frequently post things that make it obvious you’re not there. Posts such as:

  • regular auto-tweets pushed from your instagram account
  • auto-tweets pushed from Facebook
  • scheduled time-sensitive tweets that are past their due date (think Valentine’s-related tweets in August – it happens!)
  • and worst of all, scheduled tweets that are inappropriately timed

So, what to do if you are pressed for time and need automation?

3 Ways to Turn Up the Awesome on Your Social Media Images

3 Ways to Turn Up the Awesome on Your Social Media Images

There are countless things I’ve learned in my years of adventures on social media, and in the last 3 years I’ve shared that knowledge by coaching businesses. In my coaching sessions, I’ve assisted clients with strategy, planning, and deciding which platforms are best for them. Once that is done we go into detail on how to get the most out of their social marketing.

There are a few very common issues I’ve found the majority of my clients to struggle with, but the #1 question they all have (and stress over!) is:

“What the heck do I post?”

The long answer to this is, of course, going to depend on some important factors. Some of these include: the individual business, what their goals are, what their clients respond to, what their brand’s personality is and so on. And all of those things most certainly play a huge part in getting it right.

Assuming you know most of that, there is one additional but commonly overlooked element: including great visuals.

What is the save button on Pinterest

Pinterest Save Button: What Is It?

If you’re like me and have a Pinterest account that is showing you a “save” button instead of your usual “pin it” button in the top left corner of the images in your feed, don’t panic.

I noticed this today and at first was fairly confused. Had I done something wrong, or perhaps clicked on something that made my setting change?

What is the save button on Pinterest?

I started poking around in my profile, then my settings, then in the Pinterest help pages. No information about a save button. I decided to try my search engine, assuming I’d find a slew of articles explaining what the Pinterest save button was, and you know what I found?

How to Network for Success on Facebook

Part 1 (of a 3 part series)

Be sure to check out part 2 and part 3 for even more fab Facebook networking pointers.

Whether you haven’t yet tapped in to the beauty that is Facebook groups, or whether you’ve already joined 100 of them, there are likely some things you haven’t heard of or considered that may help to boost your Facebook networking success.

Considering many people out there are using Facebook networking groups incorrectly (and likely complaining about their lack of results), being savvy and using groups to their full potential will automatically put you ahead.

When you’re ready to join some groups on Facebook, consider first asking yourself what specifically you hope to get out of your membership(s).

Good quality groups, when used properly, can drastically increase your visibility (and credibility) with colleagues in your industry, and with potential clients.

Make a list of what you hope to accomplish in the groups you join, so you’ll know which groups are the best fit for you. Consider also how much time you’re willing or able to commit to actually networking in your chosen groups. It’s better to be an engaged member of 5-10 groups than it is to be a disengaged member of 100.
