Pinterest is a great source of referral traffic for bloggers.

How To Turn On Notifications!

How To Turn On Notifications

There has been a lot of chatter around the new Facebook and Instagram algorithms. Basically the techy guys at Facebook (who own Instagram, FYI) want to take Facebook back to the beginning when it was a more personal social network rather than your news feed being filled up by posts from all the pages and groups you like.

Entrepreneurs, I ask you, “Why Do It?”

As entrepreneurs I think we often find ourselves asking that all important question – what is the point? Why do we, as entrepreneurs, do it? We can go and get a 9.00 to 5.00 job where we earn a salary, go home, forget the stresses of the day, spend that quality time with our families, go to bed and then do it all over again tomorrow.

Project Review: Muppie Lounge

When I first had the idea to give social media coaching a try, I knew I needed a ‘test case’, so when a friend of mine mentioned that she was going to start her own clothing line I approached her to find out what her plans were with regards to the social media marketing of her new brand. She didn’t have a plan. I saw the opportunity for us to help each other and so I offered to be her social media coach in the run up to the launch of her new woman’s wear clothing brand.
