Did you know that Lovesail is on Instagram (@lovesaildating)? I know, I know, how many more social media accounts do we need to have these days? If you haven’t ventured onto Instagram yet then do, it really is one of the better ones (even if it is owned by Facebook!).
Why we use social media
We do have a Facebook Account (Love Sail Social Network And Online Dating) and a Twitter Account (@lovesail). As a business owner, we have to engage with these two if we want to climb up the search engines and be noticed. However, many of us would rather be getting on with the day to day running of the business. It is frustrating that as a business we have to engage in order to survive. The more social engagement we carry out, more Google points and so more steps up the search engine ladder.
There are many articles about the destructive side of social media. I’m currently looking at ways in which to decrease the number of posts on some social media channels and increase other ways of engaging people, ideally whilst supporting small businesses at the same time. When I do use social media my aim is to make engagements positive, supportive, educational and/or uplifting.
A picture is worth a thousand words
Instagram is one social media channel I do like and will continue to use. Why? Well, it’s quick, easy and just flicking through the many wonderful images can’t fail to brighten your day. And as the Chinese expression says “Hearing something a hundred times isn’t better than seeing it once”.
Here are just a few of the photos we have posted on Instagram. You don’t need a fancy camera either. Most of the images have been taken with a mobile phone!
