Each and every day we have so much to remember, we have so much to think about.

Posting pictures of finished hair is beautiful. In this weeks episode of the 10 Minute Beauty Business Podcast I am explaining why the context is so important in your social media posts when marketing your business. While hair pictures can showcase your work, it is crucial to provide additional information about your salon, space, and services to make a more significant impact on clients and potential guests. The episode stresses the significance of considering what your clients and potential guests want to see and feel when they interact with your content.
I want to encourage you to post content that conveys more than hair pictures. Try introducing yourself and your salon to create deeper connections. Remember your WHY, why you do what you do, you are creating content that is emotionally engaging, prompting potential and current clients to take action book an appointment.

Creating content for social media can be overwhelming, especially if you are trying to do it every day. That is why batch creating your social media content is a great way to simplify the process and ensure that you are staying on track with your strategy.
Batch creating social media content means that you plan out your content in advance and create it all at once. This way, you can have content ready to go for days or even weeks at a time. To do this, you should first determine your content pillars. These are three to five ideas that help you stay focused and strategic with your content. For example, if you are a hair salon, your content pillars could include your services, team, and community, and tutorials or tips.
Once you have your content pillars in place, you can create content for each one. This could be anything from inspiring posts about your services to spotlighting clients or team members. You can also include tutorials or tips to educate...
