5 Tips For Increasing Social Media Influence

Whether you want to get a bigger following on your personal Instagram or you run social media pages for your company, here are five tips you can start implementing today to help grow your social media influence!


1. Focus on only one or two platforms. If you are trying to be everywhere all at once, you won’t have the time to do any one platform well! Pick the platform your target audience hangs out at the most, and concentrate your energy there.

2. Interact more than you post. The more time you spend talking to people on their own posts, the more likely they are to want to follow you and engage with you! Plus, the algorithm gods favor those who give back to the platform.

3. Plan your posts. Pick one day every week or month, and set up your calendar. Then the time you spend on a day to day basis can go towards that interaction we just talked about!

4. Ask your audience simple questions to get them talking. People can’t interact with you unless you give them a good reason to. Ask them a simple question about themselves, and give them the opportunity to talk to you! Let’s face it, we all like to talk about ourselves.

5. Show faces. People naturally prefer to see other people! Whether you do a quick live video, a selfie, or an office group shot, show some faces today on social media and let your audience connect!

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
