The Advent of Mompreneurs in the Digital Arena
They say becoming a mom is a full-time job, but what if you could add another feather to your cap while juggling diaper changes? Welcome to the world of mompreneurs. With the rise in digital technology and the power of social media at their fingertips, moms worldwide are turning the tide and transforming from: ‘full-time moms; part-time everything else,’ to ‘full-time powerhouse mompreneurs.’
Picture this: the baby has just gone down for a nap. It’s time to post an interesting update on your client’s Facebook page, optimize an Instagram post, or perhaps engage with followers via a Twitter chat. You’re not just managing your household anymore; you’re spearheading social media campaigns, all while handling the #MomLife.
Hashtag Games: A Mompreneur’s Ace Card
Engagement is the name of the game in social media management and mompreneurs are acing it with hashtag games. Remember, we all love a good laugh. When you can sneak in a witty hashtag related to motherhood into your client’s posts, you’ve got a winning formula.
Let’s take Jenny as an example. A sprightly mom of two, she started managing her local bakery’s social media out of sheer passion for baking. One day, on National Donut Day, she posted a picture of a donut with the hashtag #DonutTouchMyCoffee. The post was shared by tired moms (and dads) everywhere who could relate to that sacred morning ritual. Engagement skyrocketed, and Jenny found her niche – witty, relatable content that resonated with parents.
|Hashtag Games for Engagement||Example|
|Create a pun using a relevant keyword||#DonutWorryBeHappy|
|Link to a day-to-day parenting scenario||#DiaperChangesandBusinessExchanges|
|Associate with a trendy phrase||#MoreCoffeeLessTalkie|
Being a mompreneur is an art of juggling responsibilities with finesse. As you venture into this domain, remember the key is to keep it genuine, engaging, and most importantly, have fun. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a good pun?
