Read This Before Posting In This Community
Seriously-- read it

In 2016 we're looking to make the Creative Social Media Community a high-quality place to interact with and engage with peers and fellow social media enthusiasts.

To meet that goal, we will need to be strict about what kinds of content we allow to be posted. We will be banning and reporting spammers without hesitation.

We're not going to make it complicated to post, so just follow this one rule:

Be relevant and thoughtful in what you post to this community.

What does that mean?
- Make sure your post has to do with this community
- Post in the proper categories
- Your post should be longer than a tweet
- No affiliate promotions, MLM, or soliciting of any kind
- Your post should invite conversation not just click-throughs
- Be helpful, inquisitive, conversational and open to feedback

With these things in mind, let's make this community awesome! Deal?

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:

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?

Why is there a pound sign in front of that word?” – every grandparent ever. The hashtag. The ability to tag a relevant word or phrase on social networking sites to categorize and identify messages related to certain topics. A tool that originated on Twitter has now spread to social media platforms such as Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Google+ etc. as a way to differentiate posts or connect them to a current trend. Hashtags are an integral part of marketing campaigns and branding, and they’re only evolving... | Intuitive Digital

Let's Get Buffer to Hear Us!

Hey everyone, I'm making a call out to all you savvy social media enthusiasts to see if we can make this feature high on Buffer's priority list.

If you use Buffer and Google+ please vote this feature up and share it so that others will vote it up too! Let's show them that Google+ is an important network that shouldn't be ignored.
Vote for Google+ Collections Support in Buffer!

Since +Buffer just recently released the ability to share to +Google+ profiles, I think it would be awesome if they took it one step further and supported Collections.

Help make this a reality by voting here:

Why is it so important that Collections are supported?

Google is making some big bets on its Collections feature. Over the past year they've made sure that it is successful by giving Collections posts a boost in the Home feed above and before Public posts. At +Steady Demand we've tested this to be true: Collections posts get far greater reach and drive far more follower growth than posts that are just Public.

So to all my social media manager friends out there who both USE +Buffer and understand the power of best Google+ practices, please vote for that feature!

On any given day, Snapchat reaches 41% of all 18 to 34-year-olds in the United State. Yeah…that’s a lot of people.

Over 100 million people use Snapchat every single day to snap their friends, watch snap stories, view curated content etc. Snapchatters watch over 10 billion videos per day, which is more than a 350% increase in the last year.

Snapchat is continuously looking for new and unique ways to better its platform and monetize it as well. If you’re a business that hasn’t established a presence on Snapchat yet, chances are you could greatly benefit from this platform. Establish your brand, get creative, and have fun with it. | Intuitive Digital
