I’ve got a great new podcast for interior designers, to share with you today! This particular episode just happens to feature me. :-)
This new-to-the-design-biz girlie is sooooo fun! She is really going places!!!
Plus, I love her voice and she is so engaging. (So important to me as a podcast listener!)
I loved talking to Michelle Binette and sharing some of the hard stuff I’ve learned working with clients over the years and how I have fine tuned my process for filtering.
You may not be to a point yet in your business where you can filter, but believe me, for me……it was life changing.
One More Tip From This Podcast
I would like to elaborate on one thing that we discuss in the episode about the need to blog vs. other forms of social media or marketing.
We sort of gloss over that and allude to the fact that if blogging is not your thing, don’t feel guilty about it, find some other form of marketing you can get into that you love and do that.
I agree….to a point.
Blogging is just good SEO for your website. If you prefer video, write a short intro as a blogpost and embed a video. Then, put a vertical, pinnable image in the post, so that people can share it to Pinterest, and you are good to go.
Simple! Just get it on your own site!
And don’t forget at least one vertical image. People like to use Pinterest to save ideas and info for themselves, and that helps spread your content and link back to you.
I see everyone relying on Instagram (yes, it is so easy and fun) and I just wonder when Facebook will put the hammer down there like it did on Facebook Pages. It took them a long time to get there, but they did and it will likely be repeated on Instagram.
Enjoy Instagram while you can, but don’t forget to keep building your own website and don’t ever underestimate the value of scannable content for Google search. It is the bomb people!!!!
Although very engaging and eye-catching, one of these days we are all going to wake up and realize that watching video can be a big time suck and that scanning readable/visual content is the most effective use of time. :-)
Do you have some great images from Highpoint?
If you went to Highpoint Market and have tons of images you want to share, don’t forget to select the BEST ones, edit them to make them better with tips from Linda Holt, and then create blogposts now and in the future that help bring value to your potential clients and website visitors.
And remember to practice these tips that I shared in this post about how to make your blogposts pinnable and optimize for Pinterest.
