Social Media Management

Slide1

Facebook, Twitter or Instagram; these are a few common Social Media platforms used by almost everyone nowadays. Believe it or not, even a newborn baby has personal Facebook account created by parent/s. This is the trend of the cyber generation. Everybody is connected to the world using computers, laptops, Ipads, tablets and smartphones.

Although television or radio do still exist, Social Media becomes the center of information today. Even government offices have Facebook pages. This is where people leave comments and inquires, instead of dialing the hotline and waiting for the phone to be answered that takes more than thirty (30) minutes of waiting. (I have experienced that myself.) 

People also get informed of current events, charity, DIY (do it yourself) tips, food, fitness,  advertisements and a lot more because of Social Media. According to study, the UK’s GDP for 2014, 80% of the internet population made a purchase online*. So whether we like it or not, all businesses, offices, various campaigns or institutions are now paved to the Social Media world.

As I study about Social Media Management, I came across a few tools to effectively post my personal blogs and quotes. And I am giving credit to my mentor who is an instrument of many virtual professionals in the Philippines, to achieve freedom of time and money. He is the author of Virtual Careers book, Jomar Hilario.

These two (2) tools are just a few among the many tools used by many individuals or establishments online. IFTTT, as one of my tutorials is one thing that I am going to use. I will be introducing Hootsuite in managing my other posts for more effective postings. (My Hootsuite tutorial is not done yet.)

The  flowchart below is my guide to create a recipe in my IFTTT account. This is to avoid duplication of posts, which I experienced recently actually.

 When I post a photo or video in my Instagram (@marketinggem73) account, automatically the IFTTT  will post it to Twitter, my FB Page Learn with Mom, Dropbox, Tumblr and Pinterest.

IFTTT (If This Then That) is a free web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called “RECIPES“.

In this tutorial, you will learn about the features of IFTTT. You will also learn how to use it and you will realize how much time have you saved by applying Recipes in your accounts.

Learn with Mom

Learn with Mom

Learn With Mom is a personal Facebook page that started four (4) years ago. This was created because I was amazed by the quotes I read as I was scrolling my personal Facebook profile everyday. One day, when I learned about how to create a Facebook Page, I realized that I can collate all the nice quotes that I like and I can even create designs highlighting the quotes that want to write and post it on my page! So then it was successfully created and the page was shared to friends for them to like it. That was a fulfilling moment for me and  I was happy when my creations were shared or commented. Learn with Mom started from passion and I love what I have been doing since 4 years ago.

This personal page is not just a collection of quotes now. I also post my favorite healthy and DIY (do it yourself) tips that I believe will inspire my friends and likers on Facebook.

As I start my  work at home career, I came across Canva. This online application that I found is  very user-friendly for graphic designing and it awakens my once sleeping passion of creating quotes. It has also free images and templates that you can utilize while you are creating your imagination on what you can do to enhance your image. Canva is not just for quotes images only. You can create resume, fliers, business cards and there are sizes available that suits to what social media platform you care going to post. there is an Instagram layout, Facebook cover, Tumblr, Pinterest, e-books, and a lot more. You can check my Canva tutorial and I can assure you that you will enjoy the basic of Canva and how you can come up with great designs –  How to Use Canva.

So from now on, all the images created by Learn with Mom will be posted here in this website. I will try my new inspiring creations, customized designs, and I want to give credit to the contributors of the photos that I will be using.

Along with the inspiring quotes, I like designing coffee posts. I like the aroma of coffee and I want to highlight my day with a cup of coffee! 🙂 There are more in store for you in my Instagram account. Check it out and start following. You may also leave your comment if you want any suggestion and I will get back to you. Thank you!

Enjoy and May the Gem be with you!
