Welcome to a personal Q&A episode of Bri Books!

I asked over on @BriBooksPod Instagram how I can best serve you, and was hit with a few careers and social media questions. I hope you enjoy this minisode--and if you like the format, let me know by leaving a review of the show on Apple Podcasts

 

  • 1:45: Question #1: What are the best tools for managing social media accounts on behalf of a brand?
  • 1:50: Answer #1: Later App is an Instagram scheduling platform. I’ve used it on behalf of global media clients, eComm brands, and independent accounts.
    • #2: Tweetdeck, which I’d recommend for monitoring real-time events.
    • #3: Familiarize yourself with Dash Hudson, which is the industry standard for Instagram and Pinterest scheduling and optimization.
    • #4: Dig into Twitter Analytics immediately--every Twitter account has an accompanying analytics page (here’s a link.) Start tracking top-performing content themes over time, and identify your key metrics (impressions, engagements, video views, etc.)
    • #5: Both Facebook Insights and Instagram Insights are handy for diving into overall social media account performance trends.
    • Bonus #6: When it comes to building graphics, I trust Canva for producing brand-quality on-site, digital and social assets.  

 

  • 4:00 - Question #2: How do you get into journalism from another industry?
  • 4:05 - Answer #2: I recommend you identify 4-5 spaces where you have deep subject matter expertise. From there, build a back catalog of writing, guided by SEO and overall trends in search interest.
  • 5:10 - Question #3: How do you add value to the social media space?
  • 5:15 - Answer #3: When it comes to adding value to social media, I’d recommend you anticipate what’s next when it comes to your audience, and hone in on a clear call to action. Ask yourself, what emotion do you want to elicit? I also recommend you ask people their opinions on social via tools like Polls. People want to know that you care what they think, so ask thoughtful questions.
