Create Compelling Content
When you post on social media, make sure each post has a PURPOSE. Without a clear objective, your just becomes social media noise. Rise above the chatter! If you’re unsure of what to post about, use the four vital behaviors as a starting point. If you are posting about your workouts, personal development, recognizing others’ success and inviting others to join you on your journey, you’ve got a great start. But, do MORE than just show people what you’re doing. Communicate through personal stories. Motivate them. Entertain. Inform. Make sure each post has a clear objective! Next, make sure the visuals are scroll-stopping.

*DO NOT USE IMAGES YOU DON’T OWN. As a former photo buyer, I take copyright laws very seriously. Your own images are fine, as are images you purchase, but other photos found online are someone else’s intellectual property.
I use Canva.com to edit just about ALL the images I use on my blog. Picmonkey.com is another great tool. Watch this tutorial on how to use Picmonkey.com: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSY2uiV3Pjs
