Tip #1: Canva Quotes
Canva is a well-known design tool but did you know you can craft perfect quotes with one of many templates? Quotes are typically sought after pieces of content so capitalize on that and give your followers some well-designed inspiration.
Tip #2: Planoly Hashtags
Hopefully you are using hashtags in your IG posts because they are an excellent way to reach people that are not in your current following. There is a science behind hashtags to ensure you are reaching your target audience. So one feature of Planoly that I absolutely love is the ability to build hashtags groups based on your content types! This tool is a game-changer and makes it stupid easy to edit and add the best hashtags to reach your target audiences. #awesome
Tip #3: IG Bio
Your IG bio is like a first impression. What you put there is what people read about your first. This tip is specifically about WHO you are which goes in that first NAME line. Along with your name, include what you do. For example mine reads, Lauren: Lifestyle Blogger. This heading will hook in your target audience and quickly give them an insight into who you are. Keep in mind you are only allowed 30 characters here so keep it short, sweet, and to the point.
Tip #4: Linktree
Do you have several links to share with your audience? Then you need to get Linktree– it’s free. Linktree allows you to build and edit your own links to go in your IG bio. Rather than include only one link to your blog or website, you can add as many as you want so your followers can easily access your content. It is free for basic use, is easy to use, and is a major benefit to your business. Add the link to your Linktree in your bio and all the links will be available to your audience with one click.
Tip #5: Social Media Planner
Planners are my jam and have made my productivity skyrocket through the roof. I use the Make Chic Happen planner for writing out all my social media posts for the week. This includes IG, IG stories, and Facebook. This specific planner also includes goal setting, a place to analyze insights, a weekly reflection, and content creating section plus helpful tips along the way! I highly recommend this specific planner from Amazon because planning out your content will save you time like you would not believe while making your content that much better!
