My Top 3 Social Media Strategies


Lately I've been really trying to increase my social media presence. Whether it's posting more on Instagram, or making my tweets a little funnier, I've really been aiming to up my game and expand my networking skills! I've established a few strategies that are working for me, and I hope you can learn a little thing from at least one or two of them!

1. Buffer // Tweeting is not my strong suit. I'd say I'm fairly funny in person, but I can't compose a non-awkward tweet if my life depended on it. Fortunately, sometimes my humor can accumulate in bursts and I discovered Buffer, which lets me schedule and space out my tweets in advance. I don't use it too consistently, but when I do I think it really helps my twitter game, and it's especially nice for scheduling promotion tweets to share a blog post or a product I've found (particularly if I discovered a cute shirt at 2 AM and want to tweet at a more timely hour).

2. Instagram Editing // This has taken a lot of trial and error for me, but slowly I'm beginning to discover what works and what doesn't for my Instagram feed. You can see my post here on how I edit my pictures (I've changed my ways a little bit since posting that, but it's the same for the most part), and I constantly tweak my shots to help my photos all flow together. My tip: come up with a method and stick to it, but don't be afraid to change up a filter or adjustment if an individual photo looks better under a different light!

3. Pinning Blog Images // I can't stress how important this is. I try to shoot and post mostly vertical pictures for my blog, because I know that's what makes a Pinterest picture typically more likely to be re-pinned, and my goal in general is to post content and photos that are Pinterest worthy and eye-catching. Think of it this way, every time you re-pin something, there's a fair chance you could go back and actually click on that picture and discover the source. If someone clicks on one of my pictures they re-pinned, it's an automatic pageview for my blog! A win, win for the cute pin and blog traffic.

What are your social media tips? Was this post helpful? I always have more tricks up my sleeve that I'm willing to share!

  1. I loved the Pinterest advice! I agree that a certain aesthetic catches my eye on Pinterest, so a good thing for me is to look at the pin and wonder, "would I repin this?"

    However, Instagram, to me, is the most pressure. I've spent half and hour sitting there trying to decide if my picture was good/what to caption it.
