Branding strategies for social media
A few things of note in this issue:
Holiday planning is in full swing, so I included two pieces about advertising for the holidays here. Retailers should expect a 40% more social messages this year, so please be kind to yourself during this time.
Later (an Instagram management software) released their previously paid feature of Linkin.bio for free. This is huge news if you are constantly changing the link in your bio.
If you’ve read a few of my issues, you’ll notice that the consult bar at the bottom is gone. In an effort to focus on myself & major life changes, I will not be accepting any new projects or clients for the remainder of this year. If you need a referral, I’m always happy to provide one.
Thanks & hope you’re having a good week!

Facebook added search result ads for all advertisers (it was previously for a test group). It’s testing: “suggested time” prompts when you schedule posts. It changed how it calculates impressions, so your analytics might have a drastic difference in the last two weeks.
Instagram added: “series” option for IGTV and a new option to control which 3rd party apps have access to your account. It’s testing: following list categories for better management (thank goodness!) and group stories.
