So I think it's time I talk a little more about what I actually do for a living and not just all of the fun hashtag holidays that give me an excuse to do things like eat ice cream or cookies on a random day. Though honestly, that's one of the highlights of my job. Oh, what's that? Today is National Graham Cracker Day? Don't mind if I do.
So I'm bringing back (or sort of recreating) #TuesdayTip. I used to write a social-focused blog once a month and as great as that is, spending the time writing, editing, and publishing a blog can be a lot. Sometimes it might require a blog, sometimes it might require a post, sometimes it might require *gasp* a video.
So I'm kicking it off with my favorite topic in July: Content Creation! I've got a list of things I'm excited to talk about when it comes to Content Creation but what I want to do is provide YOU with what you're looking for. So drop your question or topic in the comments and I'll add it to my list of things to talk about this month or in future months. Don't want to ask your question in the comments? That's okay! Sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org is totally an option.
My hope with the change in format for this from a once-a-month, lengthy blog, is that as things in social change, we can cover them quickly. That if you've got a question, I can answer it as soon as possible. After all, as a Social Media Strategist, part of my job is helping businesses, non-profits, and YOU develop social media content and a strategy that works best for you and the ever-changing world that exists on social.
Part of what inspired this is that I know there are a lot of people who do their own social either because they love it or because affording someone like me is out of their budget and that's okay. I understand why someone loves doing their social on their own and that when it comes down to it, paying someone like me to create your social content isn't feasible. That doesn't mean you don't deserve to be able to ask questions of someone like me or get advice from someone like me. I'm also trying to come up with some additional things to help content creators in the future...so stay tuned.
The world is constantly changing and sometimes we don't know what that means for social media. When do we pause content? When do we comment about something? How do we decide to handle world events, business events, and everything in between? My hope is to help the DIY-ers figure out a path that makes sense for them.
Let's dive in and talk all things social!
