Maximise the effect of your business Twitter bio! As well as putting your business website link on your profile, did you know you can also add another link on your bio? Use one to point to your webpage, and the other to point to your blog, newsletter or landing page to increase the opportunity for click throughs and for converting leads. What will your second link point to? Have a great weekend everyone!

After yesterday's post @jackiecrawford4200 asked me how she should go about finding the appropriate hashtags to use in Twitter? When I started to bullet point how I find hashtags I realised that they all came down to one thing. PEOPLE WATCHING but not necessarily by sitting on a hotel rooftop at sunset 😉 Find the 𝗜𝗻𝗳𝗹𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗿𝘀 in your industry and make a note of the hashtags they use and start using them yourself. Look at the hashtags that are 𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 on Twitter - yes these ones move more quickly but they're good to use from time to time. If you were your 𝗰𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗿, what hashtag might you search for? Type it into the search bar and see what it comes up with. Sometimes the simple and obvious turn out to be the best. What hashtags are your 𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿𝘀 using? When they tweet about your business or industry do they always include a particular hashtag? Use it! And once you start tweeting with your new shiny hashtags, use the analytics to see how different hashtags perform for you. At the bottom of your post you'll have numbers for the amount of retweets, likes and then a mini bar graph? Click on the bar graph and you'll see how many clicks you've had on your hashtags. Monitor this over time and you'll know which ones are working best. Which hashtags do you use the most? Any favourites?

Earlier in this week of Twitter tips, I touched on Twitter Chats as a way of building relationships with people in your industry and extending the reach of your posts. Has anyone dived in and tried one yet? They can be pretty full on. Lots and lots of people all responding to a single question, all using the same hashtag - then replying to peoples' responses...it can be hard to keep up. So don't give up after your first one - they do get easier over time, I promise! But also, give Tweetdeck a try. https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/ You log in with your Twitter handle and then set up the screen. I have different columns for; WildRootsMktg home feed WildRootsMktg mentions - when others mention my account in their tweet #elevenseshour so tweets containing the hashtag for the twitter chat I'm in will display there This means that all tweets relating to the Chat or my account show up on one page - and you can expand tweets to see the whole thread if you need to. Much easier to manage! Let me know if you try it or if you already use it. Do you find it useful? Do you have other ways to make the Chats easier to follow?

Tuesday's Twitter Tip Twitter is all about the 240 character limit isn't it? Wrong. Tweets with images can generate over 300% more engagement than those without. And let's face it, my dancing duck got you wondering what this post would be all about, didn't it? Pictures help your tweet stand out in the fast moving feed, they can be used to reinforce your brand, and improve appeal so it's well worth including them when you can. What picture has caught your eye today and made you stop in your tracks? p.s. ducks don't tweet, they quack

Welcome to the new week! This week with Wild Roots is Twitter Week - a week full of tips and tricks for using Twitter for your business. Today I want to introduce you to Twitter Chats. These are conversations that take place on Twitter at a set time, on a set day around a particular topic - and all tweets contain the pre arranged hashtag so the conversation can be followed by everyone. What do you get out of them? * They're a great way to network with people who have similar interests/businesses #ukgifthour - Saturday and Sunday 9am-11am - planning and inspiration for gift shopping #ethicalhour - Monday 9pm - for ethical businesses and bloggers * They're a good way to build a support network - perfect if you work on your own and need people to bounce an idea off #elevenseshour - every weekend at 11am (weekends too I think?) - small businesses chat about almost anything * Good for introducing you to new ideas or for developing your skills #pmchat - Friday 5pm - project management, business insights and leadership * Great for introducing you to your local area #northeasthour 8pm-9pm Monday Are you tempted to take a look at one and see if it's for you? Or do you already participate in a Twitter Chat regularly? Let us know which one(s) you like best in the comments...

Time for a wonderful Spanish Rioja from Barón de Ley #barondeley This reserva was aged for 20 months in new oak casks and then matured in bottle to complete its evolution. Its deep cherry colour and complex aromas best express the quality within our 350 HA estates. This wine has been bottled unfiltered. Which might result in the appearance of natural sediments in the bottle.

It's Friday and so we've reached the final Instagram tip of the week. I hope you've found them useful and perhaps learnt one or two new things? Next week I'll be looking at Twitter so if you have any burning questions on Twitter use please let me know and I'll try my best to answer them for you. Anyway, onto today's tip - and I really don't know if people do know about this one or not...? Well, if you're like me, you see a great post/brand/image on Instagram and you think you'll go back to it 'in a minute' but then the feed rolls on and you can never find your way back? If this sounds familiar, I have the solution for you. Open a post and just below the image on the left are the like, comment, share icons...look to the right and you'll see a 'ribbon' hanging down? This is your Save button. Press it and it'll turn from white to black indicating that the post has been saved. Press it again and it'll go back to white and remove it from your saved posts. To see your saved posts, go to Options (three dots top right), and under Account you'll see Saved - and there are all of your saved posts. You'll see that you can group them into collections too if you want to segment them. Hands up if you already knew about that one? Have a great weekend everybody!

We've talked about the importance of hashtags and how you can go about finding the ones that will be most relevant to your posts. But how do you really know which ones work the best? It's difficult to quantify because ultimately the image you use (and day of week / time of day you post etc.) will also influence your but there are tools that can give you a steer. For free you can use the Instagram insights tool. Click on your post and you'll see 'view insights' in the bottom left hand corner. Scroll down and you'll come to 'Impressions from hashtags'. This is the number of times that your post has been seen by people searching a hashtag that is in your post. By tracking these numbers over time you'll learn which combination of hashtags work best for you. By changing one or two posts in your 'usual list' each day you'll see which hashtags are working or not working for you. There are also a number of paid for analysis tools. Some give stats for the group of hashtags, others break it down by hashtag, some show your most used hashtags vs. your most engaged hashtags, so it's a case of looking at the level of detail you want to see (and have time to analyse) and weighing it up against the spend - some examples are Sprout Social, Simply Measured, Command and Iconosquare. Keeping on top of what is working and what isn't means that you can optimise the hashtags you use. It's using the most effective hashtags that puts posts in front of non followers - which is what you want. Do you know your strongest hashtag? Have you created a hashtag specifically for your brand? Are your audience engaged by it? Does all of this blow your mind and you'd like someone to create your hashtag list for you...?

Continuing our focus on Instagram - I'm often asked how you can find the BEST HASHTAGS for your post... * Use the search function on Instagram - type a hashtag in and see what alternatives it comes up with. It also shows how many times each one has been used. Avoid the big numbers (your post is likely to get lost) and the ones with very low numbers (very few people are looking at these ones). Try a mix of high and low profile hashtags for your post. * Click on one that you are considering using and it'll take you to the hashtag page. Along the middle it'll show you related hashtags - consider using some of these. * Look at the hashtags your competitors are using. Use a couple of these. * Which hashtags are used by the influential people in your industry? Pick a few from here. * Use the analytics within Instagram to see what has worked for you on previous posts and use those again (we'll look at analytics later in the week). Pull your 30 hashtags together - but you're not done! If you use the same 30 everyday the algorithm won't like it. Mix them up and most of all KEEP THEM RELEVANT TO YOUR POST.

This week I'm going to focus on Instagram and the hints and tips that will help your posts be seen and your account to grow. First up is Hashtags. They categorise your content and make it more discoverable. But how many should you use? You can post up to 30 hashtags on an Instagram post and up to 10 on your Instagram story - but it can look spammy if you stick them all in with your post itself. So it's often 'cleaner' to highlight one or two in the post itself and put the rest into the first comment box under the post. If you want to hide them in your story, pop a sticker or gif over the top of them. Tomorrow I'll be looking at how you go about finding the best hashtags to use. Do you have a hashtag you use more than others? Or any questions on Instagram that you would like me to try and answer for you? Let me know.

We've nearly made it through to the end of another week! Time to review the week and plan for the next one... This week has been a lot of networking, chatting with new people, chatting to journalists and doing a fair bit of admin. When I first thought that through I felt a bit deflated - "I haven't actually done much work". But I have. I've been talking to people about their businesses and we've been discussing how I can help them move forward. I've met some really interesting people who I can learn from. And who knows where the conversations with the journalists might go! As for the admin, well if you put off doing the accountants paperwork, it is going to take a few days to get through isn't it? So put that together with managing two business social media accounts and starting the research and writing of two blogs (how could I have forgotten I'd done that?) I've actually had a pretty good week. This weekend I'm going to be planning out next week - there's a bit more admin to do, I need to create teaching materials for a course I'm working on, and I've got some recruitment to do too. It's going to be a good one :-) How was your week? What were the highs and lows for you?

On #ReadABookDay I’ve finally found time to get my teeth into “Let my people go surfing” by Yvon Chouinard, the businessman behind the @patagonia brand. I’ve got a bit of a drive this weekend so I’ve decided to take up a free trial with Audible and see how I like it - and will download this book as part of my trial. How do you prefer to ‘read’? a) traditional books b) reading from a tablet or phone c) audiobooks (and if so, are there any you would recommend?) d) other?

Do you blog? . ✔ A regular blog on your business page means there is new content each week or so on your website. Google likes new website content so you’ll be pleasing the algorithm and improving your SEO. . ✔ A blog can showcase your expertise to potential customers. Blog about your products/services, about key issues in your industry, about the problems you solve for your customers…etc. . ✔ Writing your blog can focus your mind on one aspect of your business – that may well lead to wider thinking, and ultimately to new products/services. . ✔ When readers comment on your blog you’ll start to get a feel for what they’re really interested in and what questions they still have – this will help you evolve your business or product to better serve their needs. There are lots more reasons to blog...so I might just write a blog about it! 😊 Do you blog?

The timeline has filled with back to school photos today! Proud, excited faces eager to learn... Last night I saw a photo from my friend Bhavini at @b81designs and she kindly let me use it here. Because it got me thinking. @clarksshoes ! How long has this brand been around? I remember having Clarks shoes when I was at school and here they are still being bought and worn...despite them not seeming to be hugely innovative in their designs. They cost more than alternatives and yet they're still the first choice for many parents. Why? Trust. It's a brand that people trust to last, to fit well, to look after their childrens' feet. It's a brand that can be relied on, it's dependable. It’s not sexy or exciting or flashy in any way but over years and years they have maintained their quality, their value and therefore built trust. How do you ensure that your customers trust your brand? Is this top of mind when you're building your business strategy? What other brands do you trust in the same way?

#motivationmonday A LIFESTYLE CHANGE? “Help”, said the lovely voice on the end of the phone (let’s call her Jemima) ...”after a career in the legal profession, a busy and active retirement awaits me...but what to wear when my wardrobe staples have been black and white for 32 years?”. What a fabulous day...we talked about colour, her new lifestyle and a lot about her personality and how she liked to dress. We discovered a fabulous figure and that there were some tweaks that would really enhance it! Particularly, having the confidence to introduce the ‘dramatic’ elements we uncovered during her colour and style journey. Our dressing needs change with our lifestyles, not to mention our body shapes. You will see that ‘Jemima’ regained her confidence and don’t we all deserve to ‘be the best we can be’ ? What dressing dilemmas might I be able to help you with? Thank you ‘Jemima’ for taking the time to send such a kind note. • #jackiecrawford4200 #imageconsultant #york #northyorkshire #yorkshire #personalstyle #personalbrand #styleover40 #styleover50 #confidenceboost #lookgoodfeelgood #womenempowerment #womeninspiringwomen #womeninbusiness #ywmb #dressforsuccess #comfortableinmyskin #capsulewardrobe #lifestylechange #imagematters #personaldevelopment

“No question is a silly question” is my philosophy. When I was studying for my A Levels my dad gave me a piece of advice I’ll never forget. He told me that if I didn’t understand something then the odds were that someone else in the room wouldn’t either. And that if I could be brave and ask the question then I’d be helping someone else too who might not have the confidence to speak up. So without fail in every maths class my arm would shoot up with a question. It turns out that I must’ve been taught by aliens in my previous school because I was THE only person in the room with questions. The only person who didn’t get it. But I continued to ask questions and eventually I started to get it, formulas started to make more sense and things fell into place – because what I’d been missing was some of the foundations. Last week a presentation by the Tutor Doctor explained that when these building blocks are missed there is then nothing to keep building on. If we think of building a wall and we miss a brick, there is nothing to layer up on. The structure becomes weak and can crumble under pressure. I think marketing your business can be a bit like building that brick wall. If you are missing an important link like understanding your ideal customer, or how to use a specific piece of technology then it can prevent you for progressing and achieving the success you are striving for in your business. Not because you don’t have a good product or service, not because you are bad at marketing >>> Continue reading on the blog (follow link in bio) or book your ticket to the Back to Work Marketing Brunch on Tuesday and ask away. #noquestionisasillyquestion #sillyquestions #businesssupport #businessquestions #backtowork #backtoschool #backtobusiness #marketingquestions #marketinganswers #designquestions #designtips #copytips #writingtips #marketingsupport #marketingadvice #marketinghelp #marketingtips #ama #businesslife #handsup #pawsup #smallbusiness #businesswoman #ywmb

Nearly finished foiling (putting copper foil round the edges of the glass pieces) the tree. Just a few pieces that need adjusting in size before they will fit. . . . #tree #stainedglass #copperfoiling #blossom #wip #instaglass #ywmb

I've been seeing a lot of people across social media forums listing out their goals today now we're at the 1st of a new month. It's great to see the diversity in people's goals and I feel inspired by many of them. But I am seeing more and more people aiming for '300 likes' or '1,000 followers' etc. on their different social media platforms. And whilst it's great to measure these stats, it's also important to understand that 'likes' are not the be all and end all in measuring success on social media. An increase in likes or followers means that new people are following you, so your message is relevant and is resonating with people, which is great. But after the initial 'like' do they go on to engage with your account or do they remain a silent follower? Without engagement from them, they may as well not be a follower as far as the algorithms are concerned. You need your followers to be liking and/or commenting on your posts. This engagement tells the algorithm that your posts are interesting and relevant so it goes on to show your post to more people. If one person comments, their circle of friends will then have the opportunity to see that post. If one of them comments, then their circle of friends will have the opportunity to also see it. And it's that ripple effect that you are aiming to get so that your posts are seen by the most people possible. So yes, set those September goals, aim for more likes, but also think about your content. Is it engaging? Will it prompt discussion from your followers?

I think it’s about time I poured myself one of these. It’s Friday, and it’s not any old Friday, it’s the last Friday of the month! I like to set myself bronze, silver and gold targets...and a champagne target. Ticking off the bronze and silver ones feel good, but the gold and champagne ones are bigger projects towards longer term plans so they feel great when I get them as well. I might have just put in a 15 hour day to hit them but I’ve done it! And it feels good. I’m eager to plan for September now... Did you hit your goals and targets? How will you celebrate?

I’m between meetings in York so having a quick cappuccino at @fortyfiveuk What a nice chilled out space! I’ve actually got a fair bit ticked off the to do list while I’ve been in here...all those little admin bits that keep being pushed to the ‘later on’ pile. So that feels satisfying. What do you keep rolling over to the next day on your list? What are those niggly jobs that you keep putting off?

I’m back to working on this tree panel. Target: cut out all the pieces this morning. The fun bit is making sure no pieces of the same glass are next to each other! . . . #stainedglass #copperfoil #tree #glasstree #greenglass #cuttingglass #ywmb #instaglass #etsyteamyorkuk
