3 Tips To Help You Enjoy Social Media

Do You Enjoy Using Social Media In Your Equestrian or Pet Care Business?

Do you ever feel overwhelmed. Or lost using social media?

It can be easy to get distracted by other users. In so much as feeling that they're doing better than you. You may not be getting the results you want. Or expect.

Here's 3 tips to help you enjoy using social media.

  1. Unfollow!

If another user is always in your social media feed. And you feel that they're getting all the likes or shares, and you're not. And this is making you feel overwhelmed. And not helping you feel positive. Then stop following them. Or if you're not, but because others you're following are sharing/commenting, so shows in your feed. Or because the social network 'recommends' the posts to you. Then mute them. You can usually mute or block a user. Do this.

To help you thrive, positivity is key. And using social media should be enjoyable. And not an endurance test. Only see users/posts that help you feel happy.

  1. Engage

I've said this many times before. But engage with fellow users. Either comment on a post. Share a post. Reply or like a post. Depending on the network, you don't always need to follow someone to share or comment. Keep comments positive or helpful.

You're more likely to have your posts seen. And people finding your account, if you engage. And you may make a new customer. Or a new contact who can recommend you to their friends or family.

  1. Use a variety of posts

Use photo's, video's, gif's, links, text posts. Some post formats will work better than others. Some will work better at different times of the day or week. Some will work better for different content. But mix it up. It can be fun to try different posts. And see what works. Using the same post format all the time can make you feel bored. And can bore your followers (dare I say it!).

Action Point
Whichever social network you use as an equestrian or pet care entrepreneur. Review what you're doing now. And take note of the three ideas above. And if you're not doing any of them. Then start now!
