The Ultimate Social Media Branding Guide
Plus, get a bonus checklist to start getting it done right now!

Create a strong personal brand across all your social platforms with this no-nonsense guide. It gives you everything you need to know from start to finish including usernames, bios, profile picture, cover photos, keywords, and content.

This is truly an "all you need to know" guide: http://dustn.xyz/smbrandguide

Creating a cohesive social media presence that drives brand equity across multiple platforms takes intentionality and planning. I've gone through and listed everything I thought was relevant to making this happen.

One of the most important tips though is this:

"SocialMedia branding isn't just about looks, it's about the content you share consistently."

You could have a downright crappy profile picture, poorly branded website and a lame bio but if you're consistently sharing targeted content that meets your audience's needs/wants, and you'll win.

Have you ensured your personal branding across social media is this air-tight?

The Biggest Social Media Mistake (And How to Avoid It)
As the recent fate of Vine shows us, you should never put your audience solely in someone else’s hands.

Are you working to build an audience online? If so, I want to warn you about a very serious social media mistake that I see a lot of social media stars making.

The Future of Social Media (And How to Prepare For It)
State of Social Media 2016 Report http://dustn.ws/2fZSQJJ

Great study by the +Buffer team and some really stunning insights gathered through a survey of over 1,200 marketing pros.

As I expected, Facebook video is going to be a big focus in 2017 and businesses are more interested in creating video content than ever.

It was also great to see that blogging is actually of more interest than the LIVE video aspect. So while video is reaching its peak, home-grown blog content is still a slightly bigger priority than live streaming.

What are your predictions for #SocialMedia in 2017?

No Joke, Pinterest is a Powerful Traffic Driver
And I wish it hadn't taken me this long to figure it out

For a couple year I was not giving Pinterest the credit and attention I should have. Despite +Peg Fitzpatrick and +Jeff Sieh telling me that I needed to spend some time optimizing my site for it, I just didn't find the time.

Well, I finally took their advice while we were building out +Social in 2014 and once I implemented this simple strategy, my traffic has never been the same.

Pinterest is now my #1 social traffic source... by a LONG SHOT.

In this blog post I tell you what simple change I made (spoiler alert: tall visuals) and how I implemented it on every single blog post since.

Thank you Dustin! I appreciate it, Facebook is so old & tired. I don't trust them anymore, so I dropped that media. Hopefully you will have a much better one here!

In case you missed it...
The BIGGEST Social Media Mistake is Not Having a Website

For many newcomers to the world of #SocialMedia success, they fall into the trap of thinking "All I need is a [social network profile]. I don't need a website."

But time and time again, it's proven to spell disaster.

I give several real-life examples of how this mentality has nearly annihilated people's success overnight. And now with the recent shut down of Vine, this advice is as important as ever.

Read the full blog post here: http://dustn.ws/2gbxDjc

Do you have a website as the cornerstone of your social media strategy?
