I love all the new integrations happening on Instagram and Facebook!
And one thing that is AMAZING, and everyone needs to know about it, is that you can reply to a comment, post a comment, or trash a comment on your Instagram account, right from your Facebook BUSINESS PAGE!
Check this out!
- Click on your INBOX on your Facebook Business Page
- Then Click on the Instagram icon
- Now you can reply, comment, or trash comments all from your Facebook “back office”.
This is kind of amazing on so many levels. If you’re not utilizing your inbox for your Facebook business page, I’m going to guess you’re missing notifications!
Let me show you WHY I love using the inbox tab on my Business Facebook Page!
Answering people on posts!
For instance, I’m running 6 Facebook parties right now. Instead of clicking on every single party and checking every single post, I go to my inbox and I can see EVERY post and EVERY comment. But the cool thing, I can ANSWER them all right from my inbox. So I’m not chasing posts and scrolling and trying to go through a million pages.
This helps me:
- Save time
- Not MISS notifications
- Work my business like a #GirlBoss
Check it out and work your business SMARTER not HARDER!
This is just one more reason you should be hosting your Facebook parties on your Facebook business page. I firmly believe this is where they need to be in order to run your business efficiently.
- You can check all party posts and comments in one place
- Your events are public, so your hostess AND guests can share the posts
- YOU can share the posts via Twitter
- It is ALL searchable content on the web, which gives you more exposure for your business and brand
- You can easily find all your past events and post in them occasionally
I challenge you today to RETHINK how you’re hosting your Facebook parties!
I love the new Instagram save feature!
If you’re scrolling through your Instagram and find something AWESOME…you just tap this save “ribbon” and you cna go back and see it in a “folder” of saved posts.
So what the heck would you use it for?
I’ve saved ideas for products from other consultants
I can duplicate for my own use. So let’s say someone had a cute bag set up in a way I hadn’t seen it used for. I can save it, then go back and take my product and make the same picture for my customers.
I’ve seen business ideas that I love
I’ve seen quotes, or cool ideas for giveaways , or cool ways people were promoting themselves. I can hit that save button on Instagram so I don’t lose it and forget about it! When I have time, I can always go back to it.
I’ve also see ads of crap I don’t need to buy
Right? More and more ads are popping up on Instagram and I personally love them cause they’re QUICK! So whether it’s a video or static ad, I can save it for that one week after payday when I actually have money. Yeah, you know what I mean. I got paid, I’m rich for a week…and then BAM! I’m broke for 3 weeks. But IMA GO BUY IT WHEN I’M RICH FOR A WEEK
And here is where you find your saved photos on your main profile
So there it is. New save feature on Instagram! LOVE IT!
Instagram is all about hashtags!
If you’re not using hashtags, people really don’t have a way to FIND what you’re posting.
And it’s great to have a theme each day. Why? Because that’s what everyone else is doing! And the idea of Instagram and Hashtags is to find people who have similar interests.
So I did a little research and found the best hashtags for each DAY. Put them in your “notes” in your phone so you can easily copy/paste and follow some of these daily themes!
The name of the game is to be FOUND. For you and your business. So here you go! Happy hashtagging!
