I've been working hard on this one lately- try and spark up a conversation with every person who comments on your posts (even if it's just with an emoji). It simply counts as more engagement in your algorithm, and you never know what could happen if you respond with an authentic interest in the other person. The owner of @freshlypicked says her team tries to respond to all comments within the hour, so see if you can work towards that goal 🙌

“In 2012 a baby boy was found in a park in China. He was brought to an orphanage where he lived with 700 other children for four years. In 2016 we saw his photo and knew that he would be our son. The medical file stated: cerebral palsy, won’t walk, can’t talk, doesn’t smile. All we saw was a child who needed nutrition, medical care and love. Now at home with twelve brothers and sisters, Philip is thriving. He is walking, talking and filled with joy. He is showing each of us what love looks like. His love is unconditional and he gives smiles, hugs and kindness freely. We can’t imagine our family without him.” ❤️✨ @lotsacomptons#IAMABLE#cerebralpalsy#extraordinarylife

Goal was too develop a method of showing dialogue between the characters. I used a system of labeling the characters in italicization and colors, as well as a key on the left side of the pages.
Here’s something we hear WAY too often when we ask “Who is your ideal client?” or “Who are you targeting?” - clients tell us “EVERYONE!”. 🙄 And that, my friends, is just the worst possible answer. You’re not Amazon, so no, your target market is not everyone. And, if you’re trying to create marketing and a brand for everyone you are setting yourself up for failure. #hardtruth 💥 It kind of sucks to hear your target market isn’t everyone OR its kind of liberating. 🤔 So here’s our advice: if you’re running a small business, and you market a product or service define a market (a specific market!) and go after it. Start with simple things like age and gender and then get more specific - otherwise this is a real tough lesson to learn down the road. 😉

You just can't go wrong with a simple white dress for your engagement photos! It's the perfect bride-to-be look and will complement anything your fiancé wears! A classic a-line shape like the one this bride-to-be wears looks great on all body types. Plus, how beautiful does the crisp white dress look against this green backdrop?! 📷 @heathereetheridge

A Tuesday that feels like a Monday? You deserve some flowers. Speaking of, do you have a favorite flower? What is it & why is it your favorite p.s. Do you know what these flowers are called? My plant recognizer app has failed me. #psiloveyellow 💛💛 #psilovehue
