✔️ Captivating Profile Picture: Selecting your profile picture may seem like a simple task, but this is the first step to attracting your target audience. Choose something bold, on-brand, and eye-catching.
✔️ Optimized Bio: Along with the profile picture, the bio is the first thing that your audience sees when they visit your page. It should tell your audience what your account is all about and what they can expect to see. Use keywords that are relevant to your brand and what your audience will search to find you. Your bio should also reference a landing page link so that your audience can easily visit your important sites!
✔️ Consistency: A successful Instagram account is one that is consistent and keeps things interesting and engaging. Maintain a consistent posting schedule that makes sense for you, and try sticking to a consistent theme or look throughout your posts.
✔️ Highlights: Creating highlights with designy covers and catchy names will increase the likelihood of potential followers spending that extra bit of time exploring your page and finding what interests them. They are also very useful for providing helpful bite-size information.
✔️ Keywords: Use relevant keywords in your bio and posts to maximize your chances of reach, engagement and potential growth. Make sure to research the best keywords for your industry and incorporate them when you can.
When starting out on social media, it can be helpful to create a routine for yourself so that you can enjoy the process, maintain your efforts, and achieve what you’d hoped for. ✨
So, how do you build your social media workflow?
⭐️ Establish Goals: What do you want to achieve on social media?
⭐️ Set Intention: Put together a set of standards to help you to stay consistent and on topic throughout your social media accounts.
⭐️ Create Content: A crucial piece of maintaining a consistent theme and posting schedule across all platforms is setting time aside for planning and creating your content.
⭐️ Be Social: Engage with your audience by liking, commenting, and sharing their content, especially content your audience has created showcasing your services or products.
⭐️ Check-In: In order to monitor your progress towards your social media goals, outline specific metrics that you want to achieve that connect to your goals. Try running regular reports to see how you are doing, what’s going well, and how you can improve.

Are you looking to update your website to better fit your company's needs?
We've worked with several businesses and organizations, assisting them with the creation and development of their websites.
Here are the steps we take when working on a website redesign project:
🤝 First, we find out what you want and need from your website.
✨ Depending on the needs of your website, it may require some rebranding or a refresh to your brand elements.
👩💻 Content migration. What content do we need to create or transfer from the original website? What pages, services, and projects need to be included on the new website?
🎨 Let’s get creative! Creating a layout for a website is arguably the most important phase. How will your audience navigate through the website? Where does it make the most sense to add certain pages, sections and links?
👀 Review time! You will take some time to review the website and provide us with any information and feedback.
💻 Final updates, this is the finishing touches to our work. We make sure everything is working correctly and directing users to the correct pages.
🎉 Launch day! Once you’ve approve the final website, we make it public!

2023 Social Media Trends! 📈 According to @influencermh.
✨ Brand Authenticity: 86% of consumers say that transparency has become more important than ever. Consumers are looking for businesses that will foster authentic human connections, therefore building an emotional connection to a brand.
✨ Short-Form Content: 73% of people prefer to watch a short video to learn more about a product or service. Therefore, brands should create more bite-sized videos to help increase their engagement.
✨ AI will Play a Big Role in Post Recommendations: 2023 will be an even bigger year for AI. More content will be recommended to you on Facebook and Instagram by AI to drive increased user engagement.
✨ Micro-Influencer Marketing: Expect to see more brands working with micro-influencers in 2023! Although they have a smaller following, they often have higher engagement rates compared to larger influencers. Since consumers are looking for more authentic experiences, they will more likely start to gravitate toward micro-influencers that can offer them value and authenticity.
