Drive Traffic With These 5 Killer Social Media Hacks
- Consistent Updates
Having specific days or times that you post content can help drive traffic, as well as giving potential customers something to look forward to. If posts are always made on a certain day or at a certain time, then followers will get into the habit of checking your social media to see if anything new has appeared, creating a more dedicated base.
What days and times you chose depends on your audience?
Scheduling when to post doesn’t have to be particularly rigid, either, as you can post a few random updates between the normal to surprise and delight your watchers.

Snapchat Stories vs. Instagram Stories: Which Is Best for Your Content
By Rachel Moore August 23, 2016
#1: How Content Posts Differ
The purely episodic nature of Snapchat works to promote timely engagement and audience retention through consistent sharing of snaps. By combining the longevity of your feed posts with the 24-hour duration of your story segments, you can generate urgency while providing consistent and engaging content for your Instagram followers.
Bottom line: Snapchat relies on 24-hour stories from users, providing content that is purely episodic and temporary to viewers. Instagram content can be delivered episodically through stories or more permanently through the feed.
#2: How Filters Compare
Snapchat Geofilters for Location-Based Snaps
When you want a customized geofilter to reflect an event or location, Snapchat geofilters will frame your image or video snaps with branding and themes. While large organizations often sponsor geofilters on a bigger scale (think the Olympics or national holidays), Snapchat also lets you create and use your own geofilter.
Snapchat Face-Mapping and Motion Filters for Creative Snaps
Instagram Filters for Various Coloring Effects
Bottom line: Instagram story filters are limited to overall color, contrast, and lighting adjustments. Snapchat filters provide more options for customization, motion, and branding from the filters themselves.
#3: How Hashtags Work
At present, you can use hashtags in your Instagram and Snapchat stories to indicate segment topics or commentary. However, the hashtags don’t provide any functionality for users. In other words, users can’t tap a hashtag to search for that term within the app.

3 Things You Didn’t Know You Can Do on Pinterest
Tag People in Comments
Pinterest may not be the most popular when it comes to direct communication between consumers and brands, but it is still worth your time to respond to and engage with your audience. When responding to a comment or commenting on a Pin yourself, Pinterest allows you to tag a user (as long as you’re following them). Of course this feature is not new or unique, but on Pinterest it’s not as commonly used.
Use Hashtags for Exclusivity
Pinterest does not support hashtags the way it once did, which means they are still clickable, but search results will include other pins. Those pins will have the same words in their description, link address or file name. To make the most of hashtags on Pinterest, the best approach would be to make one that is unique. Whether it’s for a campaign or exclusive promotion, Pinterest hashtags are best for exclusivity – if you’re more interested in SEO, keywords are the way to go.
Pinterest Source Tool
With Pinterest’s Source Tool, you can easily see what people are pinning from your website and from your competitor’s (or any website for that matter). All you have to do is type in http://www.pinterest.com/source/WEBSITE _DOMAIN_HERE and a list of pins will show up. This tool can help provide some basic insight into popular products and (my note) information
