June 6th was the launch of Techxy Tip Tue. I'm sooo excited because the word has started to get out and I can here the buzz. Have you told anyone about it yet?
Amongst the buzz, people have been asking what exactly does Techxy mean? Well Tech + Sexy = Techxy. I'm all about making your business Techxy. I mean ain't nothing wrong with that, right? Many people are intimidated by technology because they don't understand it or they don't consider themselves to be tech savvy. The world is moving fast. If we don't catch up we are going to get left. Well not on my watch. I watch what's going on in the tech world very closely. I test tools out and I use them, especially those that are FREE (yes $0) or have a low price tag. So, allow me to make technology appealing to you by sending these tech tips directly to your mobile device in bite size pieces. By doing so on a bi-monthly basis, you have time to implement what you've learned before I share another tip. Fair?
Let's dive into Techxy Tip #2
Staying on topic of Instagram, let's discuss ways to change up the look of your account to make it appealing to your customers by turning it into a Look Book. I've been paying close attention to a lot of IG pages lately. There were a few that have caught my eye and I thought, how creative. See a few examples of inspiration below.
Inspiration #1- Posting in 3's.

Inspiration #2- Black and white with a POP of color

Inspiration #3- Posting sideways so when your customers scroll, they scroll sideways as opposed to up and down. Please use your imagination until I find the images. I couldn't remember his IG name.
Techxy Tool [Hashtag Generator]
Many people are using hashtags incorrectly. Customers use hashtags (#techxy) to search Instagram the same way we use Google to search the internet. Make it easy for your ideal client to find you. I mean that is the reason you're posting, right?
The Hashtag Generator, created by Season Bennett @thesocialbarber, created that a FREE tool that would create your very own hashtags specific for your business. Try it out and see how it changes your business for the good.
Well that's it for today, I hope this info was useful to you. If you haven't told anyone about this, please share it. All you have to do is tell them to text "Techxy" to 21777. That's it. Thanks in advance.

There is prime real estate in your Instagram (IG) bio. Just curious! Are you maximizing it for the good of your business or are you wasting it?
Aren't you tired of changing the link in your bio every time you want to promote a different product, service, class or event? Well, since IG only allows for 1 link, you're limited until now.
There is a new tool that allows you to maximize that prime real estate of a link in your IG bio by creating multiple links. With one click, your potential clients can now visit your website, register for a class, book an appointment with you and whatever else with Linktr.ee. You only get one chance to link in Instagram. Make it do more. You can do all of this for FREE.
As a Tech Consultant, one of my genius zones is the ability to re-create a tool with a price tag for lil to no money the same way a Hairstylist can re-create a style from a picture. In this case, I created my DIY links (seen in the image as bit.ly/tobclinks) before I saw this tool with just a page on my website. Call me Psychic but it just made sense. Now you can do the same without all of the hassle.
Go ahead and maximize that prime real estate TODAY.
For more Techxy Tips, come back every 1st and 3rd Tue. of every month or text "Techxy" to 21777 to receive notification via your mobile device.
