March Meet The Maker and Social Media Strategy Thoughts....

Yesterday, I read the news that Lush have decided to leave social media almost all together. They say it’s due to data breach concerns, and it’s really made me wonder about doing the same. Despite all of the worries about brexit, 2019 has so far been busier than ever for me. A bit too busy in fact, and I think I’d love to be able to just remove it from my list of work tasks! I know though, that this is definitely not a time to start getting complacent. UK business is hanging on a knife edge and some rich people sat on expensive leather benches, shouting at each other across a room, are doing their best to start the next depression! 

Last month I took part in March Meet The Maker, an instagram challenge where “makers” post every day (in March!) based on a particular prompt. I’ve tried to do it before, but this is the first year that I actually managed to get to the end!! It seemed to be really good for my social media presence, and I picked up quite a few new followers along the way. It was hard work keeping up though, even with posting via a scheduler app, and since the end of March, I don’t seem to have been able to find any spare time to post anything at all!! 

So, I know I’m, not Lush, and so not in a position to be able to just throw away a wonderful source of free advertising, but I am thinking that I need some kind of strategy, rather than just randomly posting. I don’t know what that strategy is yet, and it’s time to go for a run, so I’ll just continue to think about it for a bit longer, and I’m the meantime, here’s a few of my #marchmeetthemaker pics…
