Are you tired of feeling like a social media outcast, stuck in a digital time capsule from 2009? Are you tired of having a bio that reads like a ransom note made out of emojis? You surely must have grown weary of a profile picture that looks like it was taken by a potato. Now, it’s time for an overhaul. And I, your humble social media guru, am here to guide you through the treacherous waters of digital self-expression. With three simple steps, you’ll be on your way to having a social media presence that will make even the most tech-savvy millennials envious. Go ahead and put down that avocado toast. Stop staring at that picture of your ex and let’s get started.
Let’s talk about your bio
If it’s still just a string of emojis or a quote from The Office, hmmm, scrap that. It’s time for an upgrade. You’re to use your bio to give a quick rundown of who you are and what you do. Include a link to your website or portfolio. As a bonus tip, I suggest using Subscriberz as a go-to option to pull in those needed visitors to your site.
Freshen up your profile picture
Gone are the days of using a grainy, poorly lit selfie as your profile pic. Invest in a professional headshot, or at least make sure the photo is well-lit and in focus. For the love of all that is good, please make sure it’s a recent photo. No one wants to be friends with a ghost from the past.
Let’s face your content
If your feed is still filled with nothing but pictures of your food and memes, then it’s high time to mixed it up. Why! Share industry-related articles, interesting facts, and behind-the-scenes looks at your work. That’s nice content. Show off some personality and let your followers get to know the real you.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning comtent:
- Be authentic: People want to see the real you, so let your personality shine through in your posts.
- Share industry-related articles, interesting facts, and behind-the-scenes looks at your work: This will show that you are knowledgeable and passionate about your field and will give your followers valuable information.
- Use a variety of different types of content: Mix it up with photos, videos, and text posts to keep your feed visually interesting.
- Use hashtags: Hashtags make it easy for people to find and engage with your content. Use relevant hashtags for your industry or niche to reach a wider audience.
- Schedule your posts: Plan ahead and use a scheduling tool to make sure your posts are going up at optimal times.
- Engage with your followers: Respond to comments and messages in a timely manner.
These are the three simple ways to give your social media profiles a much-needed facelift. Just remember, before you hit that “post” button, ask yourself “Would I be embarrassed if my grandma saw this?” If the answer is yes, then maybe reconsider. If it still doesn’t work, you can always delete it in the morning. Happy social media-ing.
