How to create Instagram Highlights

Did you know that you can add stories to appear on your profile as highlights, even after they disappear?!

Highlights appear below your profile photo.

They make your profile look simple, yet sleek!:)

Here’s what mine looks like👇🏼

Tap my profile to follow @marleanadasilva 🙂

To add a story to a highlight:

1 Go to your profile and tap below Stories Highlights.

2 Tap to select the story or stories you want to add to highlights, then tap Next.

3 Choose a cover photo and enter a story name for your highlight, then tap Add. You can add more photos or videos to your highlight at any time by tapping Edit Highlight.

4 Note: Stories you add as highlights remain visible as highlights (and saved in Stories Archive) until you remove them, even after the original story has disappeared. Keep in mind that those you’ve allowed to see your story can also see your highlights

And that’s it! Pretty simply right?:)

Can’t wait to hear your feedback and would love to see the highlights you come up with. Feel free to share them inside MWA:) xo

13 Ways To Boost Facebook Content Engagement Post-Algorithm Shift

Article written by FORBES Business Communication Council

In January 2018, Facebook announced an algorithm change designed to “bring people closer together and build relationships.” The social media giant’s ranking system now prioritizes posts that “spark conversations and meaningful interactions between people.” But for brands that already struggle with organic Facebook reach, this update could push them even further down the news feed.

While smart brands have always made follower engagement the goal, it has now become even more important to post content that your audience will care about and react to.

We asked 13 members of Forbes Communications Council how they’ll be updating their social marketing strategies to ensure their Facebook posts are still being seen.

1. Leverage social sharing programs.

We plan to increasingly leverage our social sharing platform to offset this change. By empowering our employees, partners and fans to share our content through personal posts, we hope to offset the Facebook shift away from corporate posts so that our content can still be found on social channels organically. – Jennifer BestConnectYourCare

2. Create content that encourages meaningful interactions.

Businesses have been told from the beginning that Facebook is a community. In the face of the algorithm shift, encouraging meaningful interactions means keeping your content valuable and relevant to your channel’s audience and community. Encourage conversation, sharing and comments. Facebook is practicing Darwin’s concepts and we are up for the challenge. – Sean P FinelliThe Roman Guy – Italy Tour Operator

3. Feature individual users in your content.

Facebook’s new algorithm gives preference to posts that are shared by individuals and receive early comments and engagement. To make sure our content is prioritized by the algorithm, our strategy is to focus on our users and their stories. It gives our users a chance to be in the spotlight and increases the likelihood that they will share our content with their personal networks. – Mandy MenakerShapr

4. Provide something compelling, authentic and useful.

Many marketers spend time chasing the latest changes to Facebook, Google and other platforms’ algorithms. You need to be aware of general trends, but if you’re trying to exploit every little hack to get your content higher up in feeds and searches, it might be time to rethink your strategy. Focus less on ever-changing formulas and more on creating compelling, authentic, useful content. – Brandon OrtizSalesforce.org

5. Engage influencers.

As always, content that is targeted and relevant to your audience is crucial for engagement. To counter the Facebook shift, we look to engage influencers who will share content and effectively spread the word to their networks. The power of the combination of personal and professional networks (Facebook and LinkedIn, for example) enables us to push our narrative across multiple channels. – Tracey GroveMicrosoft

6. Play ball with Facebook and use its new tools.

Facebook wants you to play ball. Don’t fight it; you won’t win. Engage with and participate in new products rolled out to help increase reach. Facebook Stories are a sure way to beat the algorithm. Even if consumers are not seeing your posts in their feeds, they will still see the stories at the top. Use Facebook Live, Messenger bots, Groups for Pages, profile frames, video and donate. – Julie BehrMarbaloo Marketing

7. Create and upload videos that prompt conversation.

The algorithm shift ensures your posts will be viewed if they prove to have meaningful interaction. Videos uploaded directly to Facebook that prompt conversation are the answer. At least that’s what the data is telling us. Billions of videos are watched on Facebook every day. – Laurie EhrbarServiceNow

8. Enhance your own personal brand.

A strong personal brand is the key to corporate brand awareness. Start building a loyal community around your personal professional brand by providing expert content, free consultancy, useful tips and helpful giveaways. But don’t forget about your corporate pages. If you manage to make valuable sources out of them, subscribers will visit them intentionally. – Galina GrigorevaLoyaltyPlant

9. Target specific audiences with tailored messaging and visuals.

We’ve seen this before with Instagram’s changes, and now Facebook. We’ve learned it takes savvy strategy to ensure your message is being seen. It’s important to engage new and existing customers by using content that is relatable to them. By targeting specific audiences using messaging and visuals that are tailored to their interests, brands can reach potential customers in an authentic way. – G’Nai BlakemoreMattress Firm

10. Use your content to solve your audience’s problems.

How Facebook prioritizes content is similar to how a search engine does: by the value you bring to its users. To get them to engage with your brand, focus on providing content that solves the questions and problems they already have. Don’t lead with announcement-style content. Rather, lead with questions your target audience is asking, or the direct answers they seek. – Christina CrawleyForum One

11. Focus on employee advocacy. 

Facebook’s algorithm shift increases the importance of a more organic distribution strategy for marketing content. Marketers need to distribute content in a way that mimics viral user-generated content. To do this, we are leveraging the social profiles of employee advocates to seed and interact with new content. – Jesse WilliamsExecVision

12. Consider a paid Facebook marketing strategy.

Now is the time to pull together a paid social media strategy for Facebook, if you can. If you want your content to be seen on the primary Facebook user’s news feed, organic content is not the best way to go. Spend just $25 on a post to guarantee your content gets seen. If you are able to spend more, don’t hesitate. – Chloe PolitisMount Sinai Health System

13. Incorporate user-generated content.

As Facebook’s algorithm prioritizes friends and family content, it’s going to be more important than ever for brands to encourage the creation of user-generated content within their loyal customer base. This can be as straightforward as creating social contests, or take a subtler approach by focusing on creating quality, shareable content that provides information and education to users. – Jennifer LevanduskiRevel Systems

Hot off the Press: Newest Instagram Update!

Have you updated your profile recently? If not, head over to check out the newest updates that have been officially publicly rolled out over the last few days. You can now add hashtags (#) or @ in your bio! How cool is that?! Once added, it becomes “live links” that lead to other (related) hashtags and/ or profiles.

Back in December… Instagram introduced the ability to follow hashtags, giving us a new world of opportunity. This gave us the option to stay connected with interests, hobbies, communities, etc.

Now, by adding hashtags and links to your bio, you can express yourself and your interests right in your profile! Whether you’re a #mom, or into #painting, or a #makeuplover , you can now link to ANY hashtag or profile you want!

To add a hashtag or profile link in your bio, just tap on ‘Edit Profile’ and go to the bio section. When you type a # or @, you will see a list of recommended hashtags and accounts. Once you select the hashtags and accounts you want, they will automatically be linked to/ in your bio.

When you mention someone else’s profile in your bio (which I have not done above), they will receive a notification and respectfully have the option to approve or not. Basically, they will have the ability to quickly and easily remove the link to their profile.

Below is an updated version of my Instagram page, using my brand #momonamission as a linked hashtag. As you can see, it’s blue (instead of black). This makes it a clickable hashtag! Which means, when I press it, I instantly see other related posts and profiles, which easily allows me to connect with others like minded individuals.

P.S. click the photo above to browse my page or follow me on Instagram 🙂

The stats above are incredible to say the least! Instagram is definitely stepping up its game and proving to be competitive in the social media world of platforms. So many changes have happened in the last few months, and I’m certain, more more amazing changes and updates will continue to happen.

Be sure to stay in the loop with all Instagram news and updates on their Press Release page.

6 Reasons to Embrace Procrastination

IMG_6748

Really? Procrastination? Embrace?… YUP!

Well, kind of.

pro·cras·ti·na·tion
noun: procrastination; plural noun: procrastinations
The action of delaying or postponing something.

Procrastinating can affect your life in many ways. For some, it can be good and for others, it can actually ruin your life!

Everyone tends to procrastinate at some point and time in life. Including myself!

Some people (like myself) organize themselves in particular ways and doing things differently or at a “later time” really does kill the vibe and can bring + slow you down at times.

In a nutshell, putting things off can actually make you more productive if you do it right. Perhaps, this is the one “bad” habit you wont or don’t have to get rid of.

getty_492816326_104863

GUEST POST // RE-POST By Stephanie Vozza 

Procrastination has gotten a bad rap.

Today’s business climate rewards speed. We strive to be the first, the quickest, and the one who gets the most done. Procrastination–the process of putting things off–seemingly gets in the way. Search Amazon and you’ll find more than 1,300 titles that want to help you cure, defeat, and eliminate this horrible, horrible habit. But is it really that bad?

 

Frank Partnoy, author of Wait, believes we’d all be better off if we embraced procrastination. In Greek and Roman times, procrastination was considered wise. Leaders would sit around and think, not doing anything unless it was absolutely necessary, he says in his book. This changed during the Puritan era, when procrastination was considered a “sin of folly.” While the shame around it has remained, Partnoy says procrastination is really the art of managing delay, and it can lead to greater success and happiness.

John Perry, author of The Art of Procrastination: A Guide to Effective Dawdling, Lollygagging, and Postponing, agrees. A Stanford University professor of philosophy, Perry recalls a time when he had a lot of papers to grade, but didn’t feel like it.

“At Stanford, I’m known as a guy who gets a lot done,” he says. “I wondered how that could be when I know I’m an incredible procrastinator.” After doing some thinking (when he was supposed to grading papers), Perry realized he was actually a “structured procrastinator,” someone who does other things while he procrastinates. Partnoy calls it “active procrastination.”

 

While both authors agree that unstructured or passive procrastinating is really laziness, they say that procrastination can be good when used in the right way. Here are seven reasons why you shouldn’t worry about putting off to tomorrow what you could do today:

 

1. Structured procrastinators get more done.

If you have a task that you want to put off, Perry says structured procrastinators will find something else to do in its place. You might clean the house, pay your bills, research another project or send out overdue emails, for example, but in the end, you’ll get around to doing the thing you’re supposed to do.

“This isn’t bad because you’ve gotten all of those other things done in the meantime,” he says. “If you had done the assigned task first, you might have called it a day and not accomplished anything else.”

 

2. Procrastinators make better decisions.

Procrastinating is thinking about the greatest amount of time you can delay taking an action or making a decision, and then waiting until the last minute, says Partnoy. During the delay, the procrastinator is gathering information, which is a recipe for success.

“We like to believe there is wisdom in our snap decisions and sometimes there is,” he writes. “But true wisdom and judgment come from understanding our limitations when it comes to thinking about the future … That is why it is so important for us to think about the relevant time period of our decisions and then ask what is the maximum amount of time we can take within that period to observe and process information about possible outcomes.”

 

3. Procrastination leads to creativity.

Procrastinators are often big thinkers, says Perry, and putting off work can be an engine of human progress. When you’re assigned a task that seems too hard to do, procrastinating often leads you to invent a better way.

“If you go back through history of human culture, and take away every invention that was made by someone who was supposed to be doing something else, I’m willing to bet there wouldn’t be a lot left,” he says.

 

4. Unnecessary tasks disappear when you procrastinate.

Most large organizations assign tasks that aren’t vital to the success of the company, says Perry. When the employee procrastinates on this busy work, it often gets scrapped when important tasks arise.

“You would have wasted time doing these unnecessary things,” he says, adding that there is an exception. “If your colleagues are counting on you, you should do the task so they don’t get annoyed.”

 

5. Procrastination leads to better apologies.

If you step on someone’s foot or run your grocery cart into theirs, an immediate apology is expected and appropriate. In other situations, however, it’s best to wait, says Partnoy.

The most effective apologies come six hours after the situation, he says. This is because the aggrieved has had time to vent and gather more information. The emotions of the situation may have also subsided a bit, and they will be ready to receive an apology.

 

6. Procrastinating gives you insight as to what you find important.

Your subconscious is often telling you something when you want to delay a task, says Perry.

“If you’re a productive person, the desire to procrastinate on a task can mean that the task isn’t important or valuable to you,” he says. “Pay attention to that and ask yourself if you should be doing it at all.”

7 Practical Tips to Achieve a Positive Mindset

Repost Jim Rohn Official Fan Page June 7, 2017
Written by Larry Alton June 7, 2016

The “power of positive thinking” is a popular concept, and sometimes it can feel a little cliché. But the physical and mental benefits of positive thinking have been demonstrated by multiple scientific studies. Positive thinking can give you more confidence, improve your mood, and even reduce the likelihood of developing conditions such as hypertension, depression and other stress-related disorders.

All this sounds great, but what does the “power of positive thinking” really mean?

You can define positive thinking as positive imagery, positive self-talk or general optimism, but these are all still general, ambiguous concepts. If you want to be effective in thinking and being more positive, you’ll need concrete examples to help you through the process.

Here are seven:

1. Start the day with positive affirmation.
How you start the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. Have you ever woken up late, panicked, and then felt like nothing good happened the rest of the day? This is likely because you started out the day with a negative emotion and a pessimistic view that carried into every other event you experienced. Instead of letting this dominate you, start your day with positive affirmations. Talk to yourself in the mirror, even if you feel silly, with statements like, “Today will be a good day” or “I’m going to be awesome today.” You’ll be amazed how much your day improves.

2. Focus on the good things, however small.
Almost invariably, you’re going to encounter obstacles throughout the day—there’s no such thing as a perfect day. When you encounter such a challenge, focus on the benefits, no matter how slight or unimportant they seem. For example, if you get stuck in traffic, think about how you now have time to listen to the rest of your favorite podcast. If the store is out of the food you want to prepare, think about the thrill of trying something new.

3. Find humor in bad situations.
Allow yourself to experience humor in even the darkest or most trying situations. Remind yourself that this situation will probably make for a good story later and try to crack a joke about it. Say you’re laid off; imagine the most absurd way you could spend your last day, or the most ridiculous job you could pursue next—like kangaroo handler or bubblegum sculptor.

4. Turn failures into lessons.
You aren’t perfect. You’re going to make mistakes and experience failure in multiple contexts, at multiple jobs and with multiple people. Instead of focusing on how you failed, think about what you’re going to do next time—turn your failure into a lesson. Conceptualize this in concrete rules. For example, you could come up with three new rules for managing projects as a result.

5. Transform negative self-talk into positive self-talk.
Negative self-talk can creep up easily and is often hard to notice. You might think I’m so bad at this or I shouldn’t have tried that. But these thoughts turn into internalized feelings and might cement your conceptions of yourself. When you catch yourself doing this, stop and replace those negative messages with positive ones. For example, I’m so bad at this becomes Once I get more practice, I’ll be way better at this. I shouldn’t have tried becomes That didn’t work out as planned—maybe next time.

6. Focus on the present.
I’m talking about the present—not today, not this hour, only this exact moment. You might be getting chewed out by your boss, but what in this exact moment is happening that’s so bad? Forget the comment he made five minutes ago. Forget what he might say five minutes from now. Focus on this one, individual moment. In most situations, you’ll find it’s not as bad as you imagine it to be. Most sources of negativity stem from a memory of a recent event or the exaggerated imagination of a potential future event. Stay in the present moment.

7. Find positive friends, mentors and co-workers.
When you surround yourself with positive people, you’ll hear positive outlooks, positive stories and positive affirmations. Their positive words will sink in and affect your own line of thinking, which then affects your words and similarly contributes to the group. Finding positive people to fill up your life can be difficult, but you need to eliminate the negativity in your life before it consumes you. Do what you can to improve the positivity of others, and let their positivity affect you the same way.

Almost anybody in any situation can apply these lessons to their own lives and increase their positive attitude. As you might imagine, positive thinking offers compounding returns, so the more often you practice it, the greater benefits you’ll realize.

Well there you have it! Seven practical tips to achieve a positive mindset. I hope you enjoyed and found value from this. If so, feel free to drop a comment and share it with your friends and family!

8 Reasons Why Team Work Makes the Dream Work

Are you among those who are yet to decide whether or not to work in/ as a team?

Or are you a business owner who is confused about the benefits of team work?

Either way, I understand.

Team work can be annoying at times and frustrating, to say the least. In my experience, it can often bring unnecessary disagreements, which can lead to arguments. At times, there are personality clashes, which can make it difficult for team members to compromise on a range of issues.

The answer to that question is NO.

Regardless of these downsides of team work, working together has a lot of benefits which you should naturally already know and/ or at least be aware of.

Below are the 8 reasons why team work is so important. Enjoy!

Aristotle once said, “The whole is greater than the part.” What this quote means is that the ideas of two or more people working in a team is far greater than the ideas of a person working alone.

Let me explain it another way… team work encourages team members to brainstorm, share, and combine ideas in order to achieve a common objective.

 

Without team work, corporate organizations like Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple, and Honda would not have been established.

Team work encourages achievement of long-term goals, which could take an individual 5+ years to complete, to be finished in a shorter period of time.

 

There is no better way to get constructive feedback than working in a team. Working in a group has a way of helping teams to evaluate their plans, hopes, dreams and goals.

For example, a strong team encourages an atmosphere where team members will feel very free to offer suggestions and recommendations about how to achieve a task efficiently.

 

Another reason why group work is so important is that team work is a recipe for development. As the saying goes, “two heads are better than one head.”

Team work allow the weakness of one team member to be complemented by the strengths of another team member.

 

One of the reasons why companies encourage team work is to promote business and intellectual growth. Team work encourages more collaboration, togetherness, and the sharing of individual ideas.

With team work, not only will team members learn from each other, but it will also help them to combine their ideas, build trust, learn how to tolerate others and tackle many organizational tasks – big or small.

 

Team work reduces work pressure and encourages team members to focus on one thing they can do very proficiently.

This assists team members to be very efficient and productive and to brainstorm solutions to difficult problems.

 

Team work encourages the sharing of responsibilities and the delegation of tasks, both of which encourage team members to monitor their progress, to find out which group member needs ‘more’ assistance, and to identify the areas in/ of which tasks they need to improve on.

In my opinion, businesses that encourage team work are very likely to increase accountability and improve employee relations.

 

Never before has marketing been so easy until companies started encouraging team work. It naturally helps companies effectively market their products, services or business strategies by dividing tasks and by holding team members accountable for one or multiple particular task(s).

5 Easy Steps to Link Facebook Page and Group 💜💜


I’m going to make this tutorial quick and easy!

I will explain exactly how to Link your Page and Group (photos included).

Let’s jump right in!

[Desktop View Only] 

1. Go to your Page.

You want to find (or add) a Groups tab, which you will find on the left hand side of your page.

Depending on your Pages Theme, you may already have the Groups tab. If you do, you can skip step #2 and hop on over to #4.

💃🏻

If you don’t see a Groups tab, click “Settings” and proceed to step #2 to add it.

2. Click Edit Page.

3. Add a Tab.


You will see Groups in this list, hit “Add Tab” then close or ‘x’.

4. Groups will now appear in your tabs list (left side). Click it. Here you see a preview (1 to 3) of some of the groups you manage.

Click “Link Your Group”

5. Here you see a list of all the groups you manage. Find the Group you want to Link.

** Click “Link” **

You have successfully Linked your Group and Page when you see a green checkmark and the button switches from Link to text – “Group Linked”.

CONGRATULATIONS! 👏🏼👏🏼
