So many great performances go unnoticed, from Hollywood to our circles. In your business, you have your own brand of performer which you may not realize deserves the highest honors and recognition for being great at their craft.

If you don’t want to post each manually with their custom caption/message for each platform, you have two ways to kill two platforms with one stone.

“I realized I knew a few women in my world who worked in social media. Couldn’t we get together and provide that relationship piece I’m missing and which would have a little different focus than other standard networking groups?”

There are at least two ways to save your Snaps (that’s what you call each snippet you create for your Snapchat Story) to reuse elsewhere.

Whether or not we have a little superhero costume designer around to whack us with a good dose of reality or not, we each need to constantly remind ourselves and those around us who we are.

“When I meet people, I usually tell them that I am a storyteller in social media. I help businesses stand out from their competition by using stories online… I focus specifically on social media. We build, we brand, we bio.”

If you plan to be on Blab frequently, set yourself up for consistency and credibility by establishing your ground rules.

Like to scroll through Facebook on your phone? You’ll see that Facebook has made a change (you can almost feel my shocked face through the screen) and it has to do with font size for text-only posts. Text-Only Posts Got a Touch-Up Any post appearing in your feed which doesn’t have an image, video, or link included now appears to be in a larger, slightly different font than other posts. If you post with a link, image, or video associated with your text, your post will appear as it always has… for now. While the Android app for Facebook Mobile is showing this change, I’d love to hear from iPhone users if you are seeing the same. (Comment below with your updates!) How does this affect you? For personal users? Not much. A text-only post now has a little oomph to stand out amid the rest of your feed and […]

Even someone who doesn’t manage can have great advice for a manager. Ask me: I’ve been a contributor many times over the years and for all manner of bosses. While I’ve been lucky enough to work for great people, we can all look back at struggles we’ve had in the “managed” department. Managers, Listen Up So what advice would someone experienced as a direct report give to a manager? Respect your staff’s time. It’s nigh on impossible to engage consistently with staff when faced with countless meetings and projects. But by staying on top of your calendar, you can ensure your timely attendance to meet with your staff. You will show you care about the time they took to prepare by being present. Managers, even if you need to print out your daily schedule and tape it to your tablet or legal pad, do what is necessary to set the bar. Build an […]

Are you one of those people who, like me, adores change? Welcome to the fold of fellow weirdos! While many of you reading this might truly abhor change, I’ve always seen it as an opportunity to improve and grow forward. Now, does that mean I like it when my favorite neighborhood ice cream shop shuts down? Of course not! The change I’m talking about is more about evolution, when things or people can adapt and transform into a new entity which better fits into the world. A change is here, folks. Really Social for 2016 To kick off 2016 and beyond, we’ve transformed what was Rachel, Really Social into a new and (we think) more inclusive, encompassing brand which promotes our vision for every single one of you to be really social and really good at it. Henceforth, you can find and know us as Really Social. And we hope […]
