Roundup: Top 10 Blog Posts

category: blg news productivity social media type: blog video

Because I know how busy you entrepreneurs and small business owners are, I understand that there might have been some helpful articles that you could have missed, so instead of serving up a brand new article for you to add to your To Read list, here are some of my most popular blogs posts!

Note: because my business shifted focus mid-2018 away from social media and more towards systems, processes, and technology, I left social media strategy articles off of this top 10 list, but put them in an honourable mentions category at the end :)

2. Best Image Sizes for Social Media 

A good one to bookmark. I update this post whenever a social media network makes a change to the image sizes of their profiles or post images - never post another awkwardly cropped photo again!

3. Social Media Updates for Business

I used to make separate posts each month for whatever updates had just come out. That was silly. Now I keep them all in 1 big post so that you can see the latest updates as well as browse anything you might have missed!

9. How to Add an Administrator to Your Facebook Page

This is actually one of the oldest posts on the list, but it has never made it to the top 10 before this year. I had a business friend who was struggling with this due to a wonky page setup years earlier - back when you could create a page separately from your personal account.  This has caused no end of grief for people who are now trying to link their personal profile to their page, so if this is you, read on!
