SOCIAL MEDIA TIP: Keep the Salesy Stuff to a Minimum. Yes, it is 100% acceptable to post commercials for your business on social media. What isn't acceptable is to clobber your followers with a constant barrage of messages about how they should buy, buy, buy, what items you have on sale and how amazing your products and services can be. Do you posts offer value to your audience? Are you a resource for them? If all of your posts are making you look like an over the top salesman, you're definitely doing it wrong. Take a break from the sales soapbox and bring true value to your constant readers...before you lose them for good.

Follow this checklist to ensure your devices and software always have the latest protection:

Ensure your device meets the requirements to support new updates. If your device or software is too old to receive updates, check the End of support Guidance. Upgrade to a supported product as soon as possible.

When you purchase a new device, check for updates straight away as part of the initial set up.

Turn on automatic updates where possible.

Back up data and files before upgrading your operating system to a newer version.

Check if your storage is full: devices running low on space can prevent the latest updates from being installed.

Regularly check for software and application updates if the automatic update setting is unavailable.

As the saying goes, “work smarter, not harder”.

Cybercriminals are always looking for easy ways to get into your devices. One of the most common and simple ways they do this is by exploiting software weaknesses—also known as vulnerabilities.

You don’t have to be an IT whiz or hacker to protect yourself, you can help keep cybercriminals out by turning on automatic updates.

Be very careful of these, they are nonsense

Have a look at ways that pages (often not genuine legitimate pages) try to phish people to click to enter ‘competions’ or ask you to comment on posts, or even try to get you to click on a link as a way of getting personal information from you

Here are some examples:



A great social media tip

Are you using your phone or your computer to post on social media? 📱💻

Your phone can be very handy when posting on your platforms, it's quick and easy. However, if you pencil out some time to use your computer once a week you'll be able to see more features available to you, for example, you can schedule your posts.

This is a good one for being on social media

And for planning content. It helps to look for the good, and it will help with connecting with others online

Not everyone or everything is good; however it is up to us to find purpose, meaning, and value in listening to others and learning about everything we possibly can.

It might change who you follow on social media and what motivates and inspires you to find value, meaning, and purpose with your own business, brand or self

This is up to the parent/caregiver

However provide lessons on each app they use is imperative, as well as discussing safety and privacy, and what they can use phones for.

If kids are younger, set them up and teach them the basics, and discuss everything with them

Library apps & education apps are fantastic, and so are some emergency/sos apps - anything can be set up, and monitored.

Have a look at all the resources, advice, and info around teens and kids using tablets and phones and do whatever feels right and safe for your child and family

📱 The right age to give kids their first cellphone is really up to you. Age isn't as important as your kid's maturity level, ability to follow rules at home and school, and sense of responsibility as well as your own family's needs. Getting your kid their first phone is a very personal and individual decision. 💚


There are going to be a lot of people and brands posting from now to mid or end of January

Set realistic goals, look at advertising, and be aware of the possible drop in reach while posting content online

Fun fact: your reach and performance is going to TANK in the coming weeks. It's an inevitable truth this time of year.

You see, all the brands out there are pushing holiday and year-end campaigns, plus they're doing a bunch of ads, and your friends and family are all doing holiday things and posting more content.

This means TOO MUCH content and not enough eyes on the content.

If you feel like your reach is already low, be prepared for it to go lower through December. It will start to recalibrate in January.

The good news? You're not alone! I know, that's not great either. Just be prepared. Tell your clients, your boss, or whomever and set realistic expectations now.

Also know that if you need/want that added reach, you will likely have to put ad dollars behind it.
