Why Should We Work Together?
Brands and Sponsors are looking for bloggers just like you and me, but they need us to have a platform that matches their vision. You may already have the blog of their dreams, but perhaps you don’t have the quantity of social media contacts they require. They need an audience, and they will happily pay you to promote their products if they see that your blog has a large social media following.
So, we’re throwing down the gauntlet, getting the ball rolling. Let’s change our thinking and work together. 2016 could be an incredible year, if we decide that we aren’t competing with each other. We’re on the same team. #WAYWOW Social Media Blast will be featured every Thursday, we can use it to grow, each and every one of us.
Meet your hosts:
|Nikki from View From In Here||Jessica from Adventures of a Cavemom|
|Lindsey from LindseyTradup.com||Yvonne from Double the Monkey Business|
|Leanna from Faeries and Fauna||Rena from Fine. Whatever. Blog|
|Rosie from Everything’s Coming Up Rosie||Marina from Simply Marina|
|Gidget from Mommy Perfect||Leah from Elm Photo Studio|
|Leanne from Smiles and Sundays||Tinese from Inspired by A3|
So, are you going to pick up the gauntlet? Together we can all make 2016 a great year!!
Here’s the challenge, stop competing, let’s all support each other. Link up each week, there will be a different Social Media Platform for you to build, we will focus mostly on the top platforms that Brands and Sponsors like to see. This is where the Blog Karma sets in, the more people you follow, the more will follow you.
Again, Blogging is NOT a competition.
So, why aren’t all of us bloggers working together more? Why aren’t we jumping at the chance to follow each other on social media? You don’t have to write in my niche for me to learn from you, how you tweet, share, write, brand. And I’m not competing for my share. There’s enough to go around. Honest.
And we would love to throw down the challenge, let’s work together to grow! Social Media Blast will be live on all of our Blogs, giving you the opportunity to hang out with us and meet our Social Media Following.
This week we’re focusing on Instagram
This week, link up the URL to your Instagram account (NOT YOUR BLOG URL), follow others on the list. Your Instagram account MUST be PUBLIC for you to join the linkup.
FYI Instagram will only allow you to follow 20ish new accounts in an hour. If you reach 20 and have not followed everyone in the linkup you must come back later to complete.
This linkup will be open for a week, so come back and follow more as the week goes on, and get followed back! This is not a link dump, if you aren’t following others your link will be deleted. Thanks.
To find the URL to your Instagram profile, open up Instagram, click your profile picture on the right side, click view profile, grab the URL in the browser bar.
My URL is:
Yours should be similar!
By the way, share this, let’s reach out to as many bloggers as we can, we’ve made it easy to Tweet above. Let’s make 2016 a year for blogging community!
PS did you know that Brands will pay you good money to Instagram their products? The larger and more involved your Instagram Following the more money you can be paid. Let’s get some dollars in your pocket!
