There’s nothing more heart warming than a new client coming to you from a recommendation. I was contacted by the Big House by the Sea via Facebook earlier this week, and we had a great chat on Zoom only yesterday. The owners of this simply stunning looking holiday home in Barmouth wanted to hand over their social media platforms for me to manage, as well as looking at other avenues of marketing we can utilise.
I’m really excited to get stuck into their Facebook and Instagram profiles, as well as adding a blog to the website, and launching a newsletter in the new year.
I’d definitely recommend you check out their website in the link above – this stunning property can sleep up to 30, and I’m just going to leave these words here: views, cinema, hot tub.
It’s not being greedy, but it can be frustrating having a limit of just 5 logins for Instagram on the app, however there is a handy way around it!
While you can only have 5 ‘active’ logins on the Instagram app, if you link the accounts then you can get around this. I’ve actually currently got access to 13 accounts on my app, all off 3 ‘active’ accounts! Sneaky :p.
This is how I do it. I have seen other blogs online which just suggest making sure you save the login details, but in a world where I’m constantly switching from client accounts to another, it’s just a few inconvenient clicks too many!
There is a swanky function called the Multi-Account Login. With this feature you can assign 4 accounts to one main account. For example, I can link or assign 4 accounts to our Gwe Cambrian Web account. This means, anyone who logs into Gwe Cambrian Web (which, realistically will only ever be me, but something to bear in mind if you do go down this route) will automatically be logged into the other 4 linked accounts.
All of a sudden, the Instagram app sees you only logged into 1 active account, rather than 5.
This is how I’ve got quick switching access to 13 accounts now, with 3 main accounts acting as the main login.
Fiddly though, but worth it.
You might find it a little fiddly, so one of the things I do if I’m rejigging the accounts – and what you might find useful if you’re doing this for the first time is to log out of all the other accounts you want to link, and then add them one by one to the multi account.
Et voila! Hopefully this makes your Instagram multi account experience a little smoother. I know it makes a huge difference for me.
Wow, it’s been a very long time since I sat an exam (I think about 8 years actually!) – so it was very weird to sit an exam for Facebook, but delighted and super excited that I passed!
I sat the exam for the Facebook Blueprint: Digital Marketing Associate, which means I am now officially Facebook Blueprint Certified!
This exam and certificate covers foundational advertising concepts on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger, as well as other aspects like the value of Facebook for business, establishing platform presence, advert fundamentals and reporting. The certificate lasts 24 months, to make sure anyone who does get it keeps on top of the changing trends and rules.
Radio Aber is a new bilingual, community radio station launching early 2021, and I’m really chuffed to have been asked to be on the new Board for the company!
One of the things I do really enjoy about working for my own company, is having the choice and flexibility of being a part of the community, and being a part of boards or committees – Radio Aber the latest one for me to get stuck in with.
It certainly is an exciting project, and I really believe it will be a great benefit to the local community when it launches. Not just because we have so much to shout about in our small part of Wales, but also in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, reaching out to those who live by themselves or are in rural areas is now more important than ever. Local radio is a great way to bridge this gap, this hurdle – and I can’t wait to be a part of that.
Click here to find out more about Radio Aber on their own website, and if you want to get involved, we’re on the look out for volunteers – not just to be on the radio, but to help with production, admin, advertising..! There’s always a way to be involved, and I’d highly encourage it!
I’m really excited to be working with Kate from Penlanlas Cymru Soaps on her social media for the remainder of 2020 – it’s been a weird year for artisan makers, especially if they rely on retail sales, many of which are deemed “non-essential”, so it’s time for social media to take a step forward!
I’ll be working with Kate on her Facebook and Instagram pages, to increase reach for both, and sales of her natural soaps and handpoured candles. Kate makes gorgeous soaps from local and natural ingredients – many from her own garden, as well as bath soaks and a beautiful candle.
