Lifestyle of a Social Media Marketer

Hi, Y’all!

Here’s a list of all of the projects I call my hobby, social media marketing:

  • Reading for inspiration
  • Giving myself time and space to think about new content and strategy
  • Giving myself time to write out said strategy and assess the impact (How important will it be in 2 weeks and in 2 months that I chose to this task first rather than something else?)
  • Scheduling new post titles
  • Adding bits and pieces to scheduled blog posts
  • Loading inspirational quotations onto the Picsee app art canvas for Instagram post content
  • Dabbling in photography
  • Searching for and downloading high-resolution, quality stock photos (Pixabay, Imgr, and Wikipedia are great sources)
  • Using the Preview App to schedule my Instagram content so that I can post consistently with a couple of clicks (Don’t bother with Planoly when you can pretty much get all the same functionality for free using Preview instead!)
  • Carving out my schedule to make room for new material – making time blocks to finish certain tasks (Just in case you were wondering, I follow my own advice!)
  • Driving for Lyft to market my content by word-of-mouth engagement
  • Watching other successful social media marketers for inspiration (my favorites: Lavendaire, Kalyn Nicholson, and Sarah Nourse)
  • Budgeting for ad campaigns
  • Initiating ad campaigns (I use Google AdWords & Instagram right now and intend to start adding content to my YouTube channel next!)
  • Writing Monthly Progress Reports to debrief what I’ve gotten done in the last month and where I’m heading
  • Investigating new opportunities for automation and inexpensive, high-throughput marketing

I typically do 1 to 3 of these things each day either before or after work to make sure that I am consistently progressing towards my goals. I’d like for LikeAFemmeBoss.com to become so popular that I start turning a profit on my investment. I’m hoping that after yielding some profit I can start employing disadvantaged womyn through LikeAFemmeBoss.com and teaching them relevant digital marketing skills that they can take with them.

Knowing that this is my goal makes me all the more excited to do the small steps of progress each day. In the last 4 months, I’ve gone from no readers to an average of 50 page views per day. People are now starting to come to my site through Google searches and my Instagram promotions. The people who read my work have given me very positive feedback as well as suggestions for new post titles. I’ve been so happy to create content that people enjoy and find helpful.  Go girl!
