Why Less is More - The "Minimalism" of Hashtags
When it comes to hashtags, less is definitely more, especially for smaller accounts.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ❌No, I don't mean you should use 5 out of the 30 hashtags IG lets you use...⁣⁣  ✅I mean you should choose SMALLER hashtags, the ones with fewer posts.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Basically big hashtags:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 💥Have TONS of competition (so it's nearly impossible to stand out)⁣⁣  💥Give you a TINY window where your post can actually be seen (5 min max)⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So, instead of using something like #love this valentines day, try using something like #valentines2020 😉💕💕⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ And if you're in need of a bit of a push with your hashtag strategy, and don't have the time to DIY your strategy, DM me and I'd be happy to help you with that 😉⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Don't forget to join my email list if you want to receive this week's homework pages! http://bit.ly/FebruaryHashtagChallenge Website: https://www.thesilviapinho.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thesilviapinho/ Podcast: https://anchor.fm/multipassionatepivot Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdlKPiNQ_Dw20N9CzGms-XA?view_as=subscriber

My Ideal Client is...
Hey everyone! This episode wasn't meant to be posted here, it was originally created with IGTV in mind - hence the blurb at the beginning and the constant talk about the DM's. I decided to post it here as well, since yesterday I figured out we're on Apple Podcasts now!! Wohoo! And since last week I introduced my business, I'd like to give a bit more context into what I want to do and who I wanna work with. So enjoy! Oh and still, feel free to DM me on Instagram with your opinion, requests or just to chat!

Welcome to the Multi-Passionate Pivot Podcast!
This is my first ever podcast episode, so bear with me! 😂 My name is Sílvia and I'm a Virtual Assistant turned Social Media Manager from Portugal. 🇵🇹 My word for 2020 is pivot, and I'm extremely multi-passionate - hence the podcast name. In my ideal life, I run multiple businesses - one as a VA, another as a Social Media Manager, another one as an Etsy seller and last but not least a game design agency! Right now I'm starting my own Social Media Manager business because I want to help other Etsy sellers with their Instagram strategies. Down the line - either later this year or in 2021 - I'm thinking of pivoting (again) into coaching! I'm so passionate about what I do and the life I'm able to live by working for myself that I want to help others do the same and find their way in this big world that is online businesses. If this sounds interesting at all - subscribe so you'll be notified when I post next! I'll be posting once a month in the beginning, and hopefully more frequently down the line.
