Hey guys, it's me Tahitia and I would like to talk about what you're thoughts are for putting together a successful social media strategy for any aspiring pinup model.
Around a year ago I got some great advice from Cela Hyatt on how to make Facebook work for you (thanks Cela!!) and it's worked pretty well, I have 174 likes and my content reaches about 20 to 30 readers on average.
As I begin doubling down on my social media presence to further my dreams of being a pinup model AND PUG model too one day I really need some input on where you all think time and effort is best spent on social media to best connect with fans and get your content seen by the most people.
So this is where I need you guys, I have a HUG collection of social media pages (a website under construction, a Facebook page, a Twitter feed, a deviantART page, a Pinterest page, my Wordpress blog, an Instagram page, a Model Mayhem page) and I want your advice on which ones used in which way and in partnership with which ones offer the best results to getting your name, face and images out there.
Any help and I mean ANY help is much appreciated :)
Take care and hugs,
I can only give very general advice and it is:
The more "organic" your content is, the better. Do not script yourself, instead post about your interests, whatever they may be. If you only post one type of content (photos of yourself, or only photos of your dog, kids, etc, or only about one subject), you will only attract one type of follower or fan. The more well-rounded your content is, the more well-rounded your fan base will be.
Be helpful - posting things with tips and tricks, instructions etc is a great way to attract followers. I started posting recipies with my food photos on instagram after being frustrated by the lack of a recipe on other people's cooking posts.
Vary your content on each social media outlet. Some things work better for tumblr than instagram, better for twitter than facebook. Also if you can do this, you can direct followers on one social media venue to another (For instance, when I posted about my recent Pinup Girl Style blog on fb, instagram & twitter).
Respond to questions and comments from fans. Being engaged keeps your fans engaged. Of course, you do not have to answer every question or comment, especially ones you've answered multiple times.
Promote others. When you find someone online doing awesome things, post about them. Your fans will be interested in most things that interest you. And the more engaged you keep your fans, the better.
Oh my God thank you SO SO SO much for responding to my question Laura, especially the part about sharing organic content involving personal interests and inspirations! That's really good advice and as with everything else that matters in life it takes time and patience applying that advice to build up the following that you're looking for.
It' funny that you mentioned tumblr, I've been thinking of starting a tumblr account to get some of my older pictures out there and be seen by more people as it's the only real social media site I don't use at the moment.
Thanks again Laura, I owe you one :)
