Modern World Momma blogs all things motherhood and fashion. We’ve paired up with her to share all she has learned in the blogging world. We hope you get inspired and learn from her helpful tips to take your social media to the next level!
Tell us how you first got into blogging.
I got into blogging when I had my son. I would get questions asked all the time about his outfits, what first solids I started feeding him, and just overall motherhood and lifestyle questions.
For your theme or brand, do you have things that you do consistently?
One thing I do consistently that my followers enjoy is unboxing videos of packages I receive.
Where do you find the inspiration for your blog posts?
I find my inspiration through my children, because of them I started this blogging thing and I love what I do.
What do you think is the best strategy to get more traffic to your blog?
Using hashtags for sure!
What’s your favorite social media platform?
Instagram is my favorite social media platform because you can share images of your day to day, direct your followers to your blog through the URL provided in your bio and my favorite part connecting with your followers through stories or live.
How do you gain followers?
I gain followers through using hashtags, hosting giveaways and participating in #followfridays or #momcrushmonday.
Once you have the followers, how do you keep them?
I always try to post an image on Instagram of something of interest every day. Also, hosting giveaways with products I personally use gets everyone excited.
How many times a week do you post?
On Instagram about every day and on the blog about once a week or so.
Is this a part of your strategy to keep gaining followers or do you post at random?
Yes, the more engaged you are online the more followers will see your stuff.
What are some misconceptions about social media?
Some misconceptions I say would be the title and material being spoken about in a blog post not mattering. You need to use catchy titles to get your followers attention to WANT to read your stuff along with great material of interest
Do you have photos taken professionally or do you take them yourself?
I take most of all my pictures myself with my iPhone 6s or with my Nikon DSLR.
How do you find relevant hashtags for your photos on Instagram?
I’ll type in the first word of what I would like to hashtag and then look at the drop-down list of hashtags with that word that have the most tags.
What are some tips you can give in order to take a good photo?
The most necessary tip I would say would be good lighting! Natural light is all you really need and you’ll have a bomb picture.
What’s your favorite location to take photos?
My favorite location to take pictures would probably be in Downtown Orlando and this one perfect window next to my daughter’s room. Odd I know, but like I said natural lighting gives bomb as pictures!
What are your top 3 favorite emojis?
How do you keep your website updated & relevant?
I’ll change themes here and there from time to time to freshen everything up a bit.
What apps would you recommend to our followers?
Honestly, I don’t use many apps but Vsco is probably the one I use the most to edit my pictures.
What else do you want to add to help small business owners?
Don’t get discouraged and always stay true to yourself!
