If you're on social media and you aren't a photographer (either by profession or by hobby), chances are you've wondered where everyone gets the images they post. You know: the beautiful sunset, the super crisp flower close-up, the bright desktop flatlay. Below I've linked to a whole bunch of websites where you can get great photos. In addition, I've also provided some explanations on copyright and why you shouldn't use Google image search to get your photos.
As small business owners and solopreneurs we are always on the lookout for free resources we can use to improve our business processes or to save us time. These are some of the latest and greatest tools I've come across, ranging from legal documentation to social analytics, event marketing to blogging.
Spring is traditionally the time we open the windows on our homes and air out the winter must. Why not do the same thing for your social media presence as well?
The more active you become online, the more networks you start to use. A small handful of them will likely get used on a daily or weekly basis, but what about all of the services you signed up for ‘just to try’ and then forgot about? What about the accounts or listings that are created without your knowledge?
A social media audit, when done regularly (I recommend quarterly), should take no more than 30-60 minutes (depending on how many networks you use) - only a small amount of time out of your day!
