From a 90-day content creation strategy to no plan at all. Either can work when you show up fully human on TikTok.

Whatever happened to empathy, compassion, and positivity on social media?

From angry rants, racist comments, and microaggressions to calls for boycotts and canceling each other, negative emotions ride way way way way way too high on social media.

If reviewing your social media metrics feels like getting on a scale for a weekly weigh-in, there’s no need to be nervous or put it off until next week anymore.

Yes, your social media analytics can be boring, overwhelming, and even confusing, but if the queens of RuPaul’s drag race have taught me anything, honey, those uncomfortable feelings don’t have to be your reality, especially if you know what you are looking for–and add a li...

Is it time for your business to give up on Twitter? 

That’s a question that makes sense given the wild wide ride Elon Musk is taking a platform once known as one of the greatest places on the web for community and connection. 

But the answer isn’t so simple.

While Twitter has changed a lot since Musk took over (mostly for the worse), the little blue bird hasn’t flown away just yet. Musk antics or not, there’s still plenty of life l...

I tried out Instagram broadcast channels, so you don’t have to, and here’s what you need to know.

Broadcast channels are just one of the unexpected and unrequested recent features presented by Instagram, the platform that’s constantly evolving–for better or worse.

With 3.5 billion downloads and over 150 million users every day in the US, it’s safe to say TikTok is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world.

TikTok’s popularity didn’t happen by chance. With its work-of-art algorithm and opportunities for anyone, even newbies, to gain popularity, TikTok has earned its status as an industry leader.

In this episode, I’m talking all things TikTok. Why it’s my favorite app, why it...

Not getting as much engagement as you’re used to on Instagram? Don’t worry, it’s not a you problem. 

Social media as a whole is experiencing decreased engagement, well, except for the unicorn that is TikTok. But engagement is only one of the factors outlined in Rival IQ’s latest annual report on the state of social media. From posting frequency to hashtag usage and the importance of Reels, Rival IQ went deep into the data on social...

If social media has taught us anything over these last two years (thanks, TikTok), it’s this. If you get stuck doing what used to work, the only guarantee is that you’ll stay stuck. 

Social media has evolved so much over the last decade that it’s almost unrecognizable. What used to work doesn’t, and what works today seems to change every other month. 

As much as you like to find your comfort zone and get in a flow in your business,...

There are so many influencers with scammy practices and sneaky offers that see them benefit off the backs of vulnerable people who come to them for help. But those days are coming closer to an end faster than we realize, especially with people like my guest Maggie Patterson taking the lead.

AI and ChatGPT are taking our jobs!

Those are end-of-the-world vibes some people are putting out there, but diving deeper into all the possibilities of AI, one thing is clear for social media marketers.

AI is NOT here to take over. When you take a closer look and give it a chance, it’s easy to see how AI, in particular, ChatGPT, is one of the greatest gifts digital marketers could have asked for.
