#Createyourmap Recap Social Media

I would normally put a replay video in this post for you guys, but I forgot to hit the record button. Doh!

#createyourmap Episode 2 Recap - Let's Talk Social Media

This weeks BLAB was really fun and I really enjoyed getting to know my blogging BFF's better. My two co-host were very nice and informational. On this second BLAB I had a goal of 35 people. We blew that goal away with around 72 viewers with up to 12 LIVE people. People seemed more open to the idea of coming on camera. We have three people join our hot seat. Woot. Woot. Some people said they were camera shy or not ready (aka no makeup).

The only thing I am considering changing is one co-host instead of two.

Field Notes:

  1. Co-host were Rachel of The Haute Notes and Samantha of Hype Social Strategy.
  2. We gave shout out to Byregina.com , Taylor Swift and Demi Lavato.
  3. There are 400+ Million active users on Instagram.
  4. Tools we all use & approve for growing you Instagram account are Iconosquare,  and Latergram.
  5. We got to meet the creator of Relaythat.com >Check out their website. This tool looks CRAZY COOL.
  6. Some of out Hot Seat Attendees were >> @Chrisashbach @Maryefern @Craigcarpenter

Actionable steps to take away...

  1. Join Twitter Chats to grow your Twitter Handle. -Some favorites are #ellechat #nectarchat #altchat and #creativebizchat
  2. Don't be afraid to follow more people than are following you.
  3. Start a conversation, be real in social media.
  4. Use the RIGHT hashtags with the RIGHT photo. -Fav. # is #girlboss

The NEXT #createyourmap BLAB is
