Top tips for sharing your New You Journey on social media
More often than not, the hardest step is getting started so this is the sign you’ve been waiting for. Do it now! The great thing about social media is that it’s for everyone. It’s never too late to set up an account and share your first post.
Pick one platform and perfect it
Believe it or not, I only post on Instagram. Why? Because I love it. I know how to use it well, I understand the features and I’ve built up a good following there. In just a couple of years, I have gained over 9000 followers organically. So one of my top tips is definitely to pick the one you’re most comfortable with and stick with it.
Practice makes perfect
There’s no right or wrong way to do this. It’s all about sharing a variety of content to see what is most engaging and resonates with your followers. One post may receive just a few likes, while another gets hundreds. Pay attention to what is working and replicate it. Basically, you are giving your followers what they want.
Everyday I receive a message from someone saying that the reason they follow me is because I’m real. Life isn’t always fluffy – it’s hard sometimes. Everyone has bad days and by sharing those and keeping it real, we are helping others understand that life isn’t perfect. People appreciate honesty. A lot of influencers only share the good days and it can be easy for followers to fall into the trap of believing they have a perfect life, which in turn has a negative impact on their mental health.
Keep it real
Often, it’s as simple as sharing snippets of your daily life. Whether it’s mixing up a shake in the morning, going live with your weekly weigh-ins or sharing how being on the plan makes you feel, your daily life is your content. By sharing what is already happening in your life, you don’t have to spend time creating content and working out what to post.
Decide what aspects of your life to share
While it’s important to be authentic, it’s also a sensible idea to have boundaries. Carefully consider what aspects of your journey you are okay with sharing. While we encourage everyone to step a little outside of their comfort zone, we don’t want you to post anything that you aren’t happy with the world seeing.
Follow & engage with others
Check out diet related hashtags to follow accounts which are similar to yours. Be inspired by their content and share it. Reply to messages and comments on your page to engage with followers.
Try a range of post types
Try posting videos, photos and text to see what your followers are responding to.
It might be a cliche but you should have fun doing it. I enjoy thinking of new posts and ways that I can inspire others. There’s so many positives that can come from social media and you could be a part of it!
Good luck! Aideen x
