Canva: Your New Marketing Best Friend (VIDEO)
I used to be overwhelmed with all the software and know-how I needed to run the visual content of my business. Enter Canva. I hardly open Photoshop anymore because of this app/website and I feel like my business has a much more defined brand now, even as I’m still exploring and figuring things out. With Canva I can create instagram videos, video presentations, blog post photos, business cards, stickers, logos, stories, ebook covers and on and on and on… You can design for free with limitations, you can have a free trial and/or you can pay a small fee per month to design (or, heck, just use their professional designs…
How-To: Tag Your Personal Friends on Your Business Facebook Page
Recently I uploaded a bunch of photos of some great people to my business facebook page. I wanted to tag the people in the photos and… found out I couldn’t. As my business page my friends did not show up. As my personal page, I couldn’t even tag. Thankfully a quick jaunt into “Settings” solved this one. For those of you (like me, ironically) who prefer blog how-tos, read on. As a starting point, this may let you know if you’re facing the same problem and if this solution is for you Tried Tagging with Personal Page Originally I tried tagging with my personal page but there wasn’t even the…
Can I See What Ads People are Running on Facebook? Yes, yes you can.
It feels like I’m spying every time I check out whether or not a company is running ads on Facebook. What are your thoughts? Somehow you found your way onto this blog, before you knew it was possible, did it feel like cheating to you? Because really, we can look at what our “competitor” is doing and copy her.(I put “competitor” in quotes because according to Wallace Wattles, we must move from the competitive to the creative, and I’d agree!) Swipe and Deploy IS a big strategy in the Marketing sphere. You see what is working for someone who has some similarity to you, and then you do your version…
You can add extra urls to your Instagram Account with this one tool
It’s so annoying to try to link to something in an Instagram post (a blog referenced, a vlog, a product…) and suddenly remember that the url won’t be live and someone will need to type that web address into their browser to see it because it’s not a hyperlink. My guess is that Instagram wants to keep you scrolling and not have you wandering down the rabbit hole, clicking on links in all the posts. Perhaps it’s for a more streamlined content consuming experience. Either way, it’s a bit annoying, and further annoying that if you had wanted to feature a particular link, you would have to erase the one…
I Want to add Music to my Videos – How Do I Do That? (iPhone/iPad)
I’ve gotten this question from enough business owners / solopreneurs that I think it’s worth writing a blog to address it. Now, with all of the technology out there, everyone seems to have their own system. Some of us edit on Macs. Some on PCs. Some film and edit on phones or tablets, which leads to both iPhone and Android processes. For simplicity, this article is only showcasing how to add music to videos you are editing on your iPhone. If you edit on your computer in iMovie, I will create a separate blog for that, in the meantime I do have this video about editing in general in iMovie.…
How-to Create a Facebook Business Page 2019
A while back I posted the tutorial about linking your Instagram to your Facebook – I had needed an un-linked set of accounts so I could show that. In order to do that, I needed to create a facebook business page for my Princess Katie’s Ponies (feel free to laugh. 😉 ) and I figured, why not film the process and make it an additional tutorial? This process is so simple. I created a video which you can watch down below, or keep scrolling for picture-by-picture steps. Step 1: Click “Pages” on the left side of your Facebook News Feed There are a lot of ways to get to creating…
Don’t Make These 7 Drone Mistakes
After having my drone for a year now, I wouldn’t call myself an expert, but I’d call myself exactly what you might need if you were “about-to-buy-a-drone” / “just-bought-one-and-are-taking-it-out-of-the-package-right-now”. Unless you have a plethora of experience flying or using remote controlled vehicles, you will make lots of mistakes. Just don’t make the same dumb mistakes I did, and you will see leaps and bounds more progress. Not to mention far less frustration. 😉 Mistake #1 : Thinking you’ll fly this right out of the box with no prior experience I thought I would be able to fly the DJI Mavic Pro out of the box. I don’t know what made…
Is Your Blog Thumbnail Consistently not Showing up on Facebook? (video)
Is your blog thumbnail consistently not showing up on Facebook? Doesn’t that suck???? I let this problem go on for faaaaaaar too long. There was a period where I was very afraid of my own ignorance, and thought I could ignore what I didn’t know. Wow, was I silly! Jump to 1:30 for your solution! The first minute and a half is for those who aren’t sure if this is the problem they’re having or if it’s something else. If this doesn’t work for you, I do mention another solution at 4:02. And I would recommend checking out some other blogs or videos like these ones: This is what it…
