Social Media Makeover
I recently decided to change the theme of my account and ohhh my have I spend hours and hours doing so! Themes might look good but boy are they hard however however I will preserver so I can have a clean identity and strong visual appeal when new followers check out my profile.
Here are some top tips for a Social Media Makeover
1. Go in with a strategy.
The first step in creating a personal online brand is deciding how you want to be perceived. Make sure your concept lines up with your profession, and if past posts don’t fit your current vision, consider deleting them.
2. Keep it simple.
Whether you’re working on a photo shoot or trying out a new restaurant, think of how you can share content that you’re already absorbing and creating, versus finding new material. The way you manage your personal brand should be natural and integrated into your day-to-day, so it doesn’t feel like a hassle.
3. Focus on the platform that works for you.
If your mantra is “photo or it didn’t happen,” Instagram all the way. There are people in all industries on every platform, and each platform has equal potential to connect you to other. Just work out which ones suits you and focus on that. Don’t dilute you efforts over a variety of accounts. Much better to have a one strong account comapired to three average ones.
4. Be consistent.
Repetition is reputation. Commit to consistently posting on a topic that aligns with your brand.
5. Give shout-outs.
Giving props to others in your field with @ mentions will help you connect with the right people. And having high-quality followers is more important than having a lot of them.
6. Be fearless.
Put yourself out there. Every time you engage with people online, that’s an opportunity waiting to happen.
