October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As Social Media marketers, our job is to raise awareness and spread the word. This week, we celebrate and honor the strong women in our lives. Empowerment comes hand in hand with that. As cited by Nobel Prize Laureate, Amaryta Sen, “Empowering women is the key to building a future we want.” We couldn’t agree more. It’s only in working together that we can build a Smarter, Healthier and more Enlightened tomorrow.
WHAT’S ON TREND
Do your part as a business in raising awareness. Carry “pink” products? Have a sale all month long. Get involved with local charities. #Pinktober
WORDS TO SUCCESS
We’re betting that a lot of your followers are women or partnered with one! Sharing motivating posts is always a win-win.
LET’S MAKE A DEAL
Still the elephant in the room, this topic needs to be discussed more and more. Inspire your female followers to get what they deserve! #ArtOfNegotiation
We are all in business to make money, right? Wouldn’t it be more rewarding if our clients were HAPPY too? Spread the Joy!
Twitter is fast becoming a “commentary” platform but still there is a lot of business advice to be had. Share the #success #quotes.
Social media marketing guidelines still highlight quotes as highly engaging content. Share the motivation with your fans.
SAID NO ONE EVER
Yes, we encourage promoting your businesses with our posts but there is always room for laughter! Make your followers smile! (smile emjoi)
