Summer is coming and I couldn't be more excited. BUT I've noticed that the weather has been pulling me outside all the time! I mean hello pool time! The result>> I've been slacking in creating my own inspiring content for social media. So, I decided to give myself a little re-boot and I wanted to pass it on to you. That's why I created 6 pages of inspiration to re-boot your social media just in time for SUMMER! 

The first thing I did was pick three NEW and main focus goals for summertime. I realize that depending on you business and life, your goals will be very different from mine. Just because it's summer doesn't mean you should cut yourself short. Don't use summer as an excuse to fall off the map. Make the goals achievable and active. Do you want to make a new summer sales goal? Launch a new course? Use social media to make new connections? Create more brand awareness? Or just maintain while you travel non-stop or hang out by the pool? Hey, your goals are your own here.

Now that we've got goals out of the way, the next thing I did was create a schedule. It is summertime after all. I noted any vacations I had planned and decided to pre-schedule all my social media content around them. I do consider vacations and family time a priority, so I want to be prepared. I even went so far to note what time of day I will posting in the summer (maybe I'll sleep in til like 7?). How often will I be posting and will I be taking days off? After all, we all need days off. It is SO okay to take a day off. You deserve it every now and then.

Now for the fun part! See...there's always a fun part. I got INSPIRED!!! Summertime is a great excuse to re-boot and to rejuvenate yourself. Your business and brain is not the same as it was six months ago. What new things about summer are inspiring you? Incorporate them into your social media. Check out what is trending in all sort of areas. Fashion, social media, colors, etc. It might be time to switch up some of your colors and layouts and give it a fresh new glow to along with your spray tan! How will you incorporate your summer vibes into your content going forward?

You can even consider creating a mood board or a new dream board. I did this by creating a summer Pinterest inspiration board. God I love Pinterest. Being inspired will translate into your social media and give your feeds, your life and your business, a real kick in the pants. Don't forget to download the 6 pages of worksheets I created (I should call them fun sheets, it's not really work) to re-boot your summer social media. Grab a mojito, my favorite summer drink, and enjoy.
