Social Media's Only Got A Sec

I've been playing around a lot lately with social media for promotion. You know there are no rules to going viral and certainly no hard and fast tricks otherwise everyone would be doing the formula!

Today I learned a valuable lesson. Good Quality vs Funny...

One would think that showing a delicious 3 minute film to the captive audience of a cafe's facebook page would be a success.

One day's work = 6 likes + 2 comments

 

But that wasn't really buttering our ego-bread.

Then today in the heat of a giggle I decided to photograph Rowan as a bridesmaid,
based on his sentiment at not winning at the Armidale Business Awards night "Always a bridesmaid" he kept saying.

1 minute = 20 likes + 4 comments

Now those statistics should make you sit up and listen!

People want funny, personal, unique and relevant stuff but most of all, something that's going to take them a second to see. Of course our hot chocolate film is going to hang around for a long time and be more of a resource for the cafe but it does make me think about how spontaneous and creative ideas should just be acted on and may be the truly effective difference in creating business.

Social media lesson 1 - over.

What does your Instagram say about you?

You see something that takes your fancy. A perfect scene for a little Instagram love.
So you shoot it on your mobile phone.

Everytime you make this decision you say a little something about you.

Now sit back and look at all those moments where life excited you and what does it say as a collection?

I'll put mine together and let you know what I think...

I think I'm romantic, in love with bright colour combinations or muted pastel schemes, I am nostalgic and love circles.

What do you make of it?

What do your stickies tell you about you?

For those not familiar with a Mac - it's like post it notes, OUT OF CONTROL on your screen. Well that is, if you are a little.. keen on post it notes in electronic format.

She jogs
I'm trying to run faster. But it depends on how I feel when I wake up. These two times were only a day apart.

She is a font nerd
There are so many I come across and I neeeeeeed for design purposes. I'm saving this one for a special occasion.

She has a fudge sized arse
I love how you can just google a few ingredients and discover new recipes from anywhere in the world. It's ace. Last night I poached tamarillos.

Weirdo
That'd be 1. An Indian fire healing ceremony kit, 2. Cause I can't remember much at all without writing it down and 3. The best blender one can get to make green smoothies.

I'm really not sure
It's a reminder to name my next pet Pookie so that we can have an adventurous time as a trio!

She's a procrastinator
This is real. I really need to make a proper to do list.
