Instagram is a visual channel that helps you build an engaged community of people who are following your cause.

Whether you work in a large team or a small one, it’s important that your social media is consistent in tone of voice, brand and even how often you post. Think of your social media channels as a cake. The cake may be made up of many ingredients but you still only want one cook. So how do you ensure that your cake is a Great British Bake Off showstopper and not a crumbling mess? You need a watertight recipe.

World Social Media Day is celebrated every year on the 30th of June. Mashable started this day back in 2010 as a way to acknowledge the impact of social media in our daily lives.

LinkedIn is a social network for professionals and has over 500 million users worldwide, with an estimated 22 million in the UK. It’s the perfect platform to reach corporate partners, high net worth individuals, CSR managers, leaders and decision makers. It’s also very different to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. So how can you make the most of it?
Twitter has around 330 million monthly active users, making it one of the most popular social media networks. It’s a micro-blogging site where tweets happen in real time.
