Boost Your Side Hustle – Get Social With #LuLaroe

boost your side hustle lularoe

Hey guys! I’ve decided to profile some social media techniques for boosting your side hustle. One of my friends recently joined LuLaroe. I’ve known many people who sell various products: Doterra, Scentsy, etc. There are people who are really utilizing social media to ramp up their reach and find new customers. I want to make it really easy for people with a #sidehustle to get started properly in social media. We’re going to case study a few of the many people who are doing really well on the various platforms.

1. Don’t Be Afraid to Put Yourself Out There in Video

Every woman has a unique style that is unlike any other. EVEN when you’re selling the same clothing. For example, there are 2,480 channels on youtube that include the word “LuLaroe.” There are also so many people searching for fall fashion on youtube right now. People want your leggings, they just may not live next door. So jump on youtube and make a “Fall Fashion 2016” video. Make sure you use tags and write a description! The more information you fill out, the easier it will be to find you.

Not sure about Youtube? Take inspiration from the following. Literally, just scrolling through these snapshots taken from their videos might give you an idea!

Normal, beautiful women who look really happy doing what they’re doing! This last picture Betsy is wearing a maxi skirt as a scarf!! Hell yeah!

Was that not enough?? Still afraid to jump on the youtube train? Here are more reasons to! LuLaroe’s With Over 1000+ Subs and look at how many videos they have!!??!???!?!?

2. Instablog about it!

Instagram is also a micro blogging platform. An image with a story can go a long way and can be a good starting point for seeing if there is interest in starting a blog down the road. Here are some #LuLaroe instagramers doing it right!

Instagram is awesome for showing off sales and what not, but you have to make it look organic and not spammy. I personally believe that you don’t need a separate account to start posting your Lularoe on. I found these guys because I searched for LuLaroe. It just is a matter of how you want to market to your audience. I would much rather be like “Hey friends, check me out looking cute in my new LuLaroe!” and include selfie. However, you can curate fashion looks and really use it as a store of your own.

Free Software to Boost Your Biz

Gimp is free image editing software. I’m downloading it now and it’s taking a while. I actually had trouble opening it so here are some tips for Mac users.

Use the control + click to choose “Open” If this doesn’t work go to your applications > system preferences > Security & Privacy and then hit “Open Anyway”

Okay now we’re in and as a special thank you for reading this post I’ve created a social media Lularoe inspired border pack! Perfect for layering on top of your instagram photos. Let me know if you would like to see a video on how to use these in GIMP!

If you use these you do not have to link back, but please follow me on Instagram!

 

Youtube Creator Academy – Learn with Me

If you or I are going to be serious about youtube, then we need to seriously get to working on this Youtube Creator Academy material! Where to begin!?!? Well I’m just going to show you where I’m at with mine and hopefully we can interact and discuss it all together.

Here are the goals I’ve set for myself:

Here’s where I started:

Action steps I'm taking

  • Write a default youtube description that includes a channel summary and links to various social media platforms.
  • Note: Cards are best used in the last 20% of the video
  • Create a default template for custom thumbnails

Now I don’t have videos up that are related to my new vision so I really have a lot of work to do in this area! This is probably enough for me today.

Social Media Marketing: Facebook & Twitter

Level: Beginner


There is a lot that can be said about social media marketing. I’m doing this blog for the purpose of learning, but it’s much more fun to share and connect with people as I go! The best short description I could find to describe Social Media Marketing, is this:

“A way for organizations to follow and connect with their targeted markets.” – wikipedia

…Don’t we all want that?

Tips on Starting with Twitter

-Have content worth sharing
-Follow the people who are similar to what you would like to become & see what things they tweet.

…I have to learn more! Thats all I know for now.
