For Christmas in Lincolnshire use #LincsConnectChristmas and #ShopLincs on your social media posts to reach more local people. Use the hashtags to post our gift ideas and bargains then encourage your followers to search the hashtags to discover more.

Trending

#LincsConnectChristmas is a seasonal hashtag which ‘trends’ globally each year so use it to reach out to your new customers. The #LincsConnect hashtag along with #ShopLincs are here for you every single day of the year so I recommend using them all.

The #LincsConnect hashtag trends most weeks during the #LincsConnect Hour so make sure you use it to your advantage. You’ll find more information later in this blog.

For Christmas In Lincolnshire Use #LincsConnectChristmas – It’s Free Advertising 

Competition at this time of year is fierce so ‘NOW’ is the time to advertise websites and online shops.

Social media may not be the place to sell at Christmas but it is an ideal platform to guide readers to shops and websites. Include links on your posts to make life easier for readers to find your shop. Use social media to highlight offers and promote what you have to offer and make time to follow up any enquiries.

You can’t expect everyone to find you and buy your products so make sure you use your social media platforms to guide customers to your shop. I am repeating myself but I’m happy to do that if it helps you to understand the usefulness of social media as a tool to reach out to new customers.

WhatsOnLincs Explained

WhatsOnLincs Explained

WhatsOnLincs is the new web page for sharing What's on in Lincolnshire posts by LincsConnect the Lincolnshire blogger, LincsBlogger

WhatsOnLincs Explained

WhatsOnLincs is the new Lincolnshire based community web page on the LincsConnect website. You can use it to post free adverts from markets and car boot sales to charity events and entertainment, jobs, volunteering plus much more. You can even include pictures as well as links to websites.  It’s all FREE so be sure to use it to find out What’s on in Lincolnshire.

During one of the weekly #LincsConnect Hour evenings on Twitter (X) the overwhelming response to “where do you advertise to reach new customers locally” was “there isn’t anywhere”.

Don’t get me wrong, there are other websites available in the County but they focus on the larger events.  As a result I devised the WhatsOnLincs page to include sole traders and small events as well as the larger ones.

Free Advertising

Free advertising – can this really be true?

All adverts are on the page are free to post. No commitment and no catch!

Sponsorship

While adverts are free to post it is possible to sponsor the website.  Each paid advert will appear on every page of the site including the pages where people post their free adverts and where the general public search the website.

If you would like to sponsor the website with an annual advert please get in touch.  Your sponsorship will help to pay for the additional storage space and upgrade of the package that will inevitably be required to grow the site.

WhatsOnLincs – Part Of The Dream

This page has been a part of my dream for LincsConnect for many years.  As a community, self funded project finances have been tight. As a result, being a bit of a technophobe, I’ve struggled to get the website updated.

With finances in short supply for this community project, good will and community spirit are what’s needed to make things happen.  I’m a firm believer in helping others with no expectation for reward.  However, it’s really good news when someone steps forward to offer help.

WIN, WIN With WhatsOnLincs

With community in mind, Jason has also produced some helpful information blogs and videos so please do take a look at his website to see them for yourself.

How To Use LincsConnect In Lincolnshire

How To Use LincsConnect In Lincolnshire

How to use LincsConnect in Lincolnshire by LincsConnect the Lincolnshire blogger LincsBlogger

The LincsConnect account is here for you to use. Here’s how to make the most of the hashtag in Lincolnshire:

Many people choose to add the hashtag #LincsConnect to their tweets and rely on the @LincsConnect Twitter account to retweet for them. However, it’s possible to get much more from the hashtag and this video will show you how:

Leaving your tweet for @LincsConnect to retweet for you has its limitations. Many people (wrongly) assume that @LincsConnect is run by a marketing company with dedicated time to manage the account. The reality is that the account is managed by one volunteer with limited time to spend on the account during the day and evening.

By following the tips on the YouTube clip above you’ll be able to create your own network from the #LincsConnect users. When you support each other, your network will grow and by using the hashtag, others will see your conversations too. As a result, while you are busy growing your own network, you’ll find it’ll also improve organically as more people join you. With almost 13,000 ‘local’ Lincolnshire followers, joining the @LincsConnect family will make perfect sense for you, your organisation, business or charity.

Why You Don’t Need To Include The @LincsConnect Address

While using the #LincsConnect ‘hashtag’ it’s worth noting that you don’t need to include the @LincsConnect ‘address’ in the same tweet!  When you use the # hashtag you’re sending your tweet to the database for all to see and interact with.  However, if you use the ‘@’ account name you’re sending your tweet to just one person!  It’s all in the video so hopefully it makes sense now.

‘Quote’ Sparingly

When retweeting posts you’ll be given the option to ‘Repost’ or ‘Quote’ (Repost with a comment). The retweet (or repost as it’s now called) is by far the most effective way of helping to increase the visibility of tweets by others.  Retweeting shows you support others by moving the retweeted post onto your timeline. It’s a very helpful way of supporting others, especially if they have very few followers.

The ‘quote’ option is only helpful if you own a powerful account that enjoys lots of engagement. The quoted tweet is shown as your own tweet for your followers to see. However, if your account isn’t powerful with a large engagement rate you won’t be doing anyone any favours by quoting! When quoting someone else’s tweet instead of retweeting it you’re effectively stopping the tweet from being seen by others.  Think carefully before quoting a tweet and use the option sparingly.

LincsConnect In Lincolnshire Is Non-Political

The aim of the #LincsConnect hashtag is to support each other.  However, please be aware that the hashtag is strictly non-political and non-religious.  As a result, any political, religious, hateful or offensive (including bad language) messages will be dealt with swiftly.

LincsConnect Hour In Lincolnshire

Join us on Monday evening at 8.00pm for the #LincsConnect Hour where you’ll find lots of locals chatting. We often have guest hosts too so it’s always interesting.  Follow the instructions in the video above to join in with the Hour. If you would like to host the Hour please do get in touch.

WhatsOnLincs By LincsConnect

During a #LincsConnect Hour one Monday evening I asked where people were advertising for their events etc. The overwhelming response was that there is nowhere to advertise that covers the whole County!

After suggesting a dedicated page on the website for everyone to advertise for free the response by 100% of the people was ‘yes please’. You can use it now to discover what’s on in Lincolnshire and our surrounding area as well as post your events and much more.

I asked, you responded so I organised it.  The WhatsOnLincs website page has been developed especially for you. You can use it to post your events, special offers, vacancies etc by completing the simple ‘Event Submission’ form on the LincsConnect website. It is hoped to cover the whole of the What’s On Lincolnshire categories. However, if you try to post something and can’t find a suitable category, just ask me to add it for you. If you want to find out what’s going on in the County just go to the ‘WhatsOnLincs’ page and type in the date that you are searching for. This is quickly becoming a very popular site to find out what’s on in Lincolnshire and surrounding areas.

It ‘is’ that simple!

Free Advertising in Lincolnshire – #LincsConnect – Make it your ‘go to’ hashtag

This is probably the shortest and most important blog you have ever read!

We all like something that’s ‘free’ but we probably also know that nothing is truly free! Twitter – that’s free! Facebook and Instagram are also free too so where’s the catch? Simple! If you want ‘free’ advertising/exposure on social media you’re going to have to invest your time. By investing your time your posts are more likely to be seen and acted upon. Would you like to know how to do it?

Ditch The ‘Like’ Button

Lincolnshire Free Advertising by LincsConnect the Lincolnshire blogger LincsBlogger Ditch the Like Button on Twitter

Free Advertising in Lincolnshire – Ditch the Like button

Free Advertising In Lincolnshire with LincsConnect – Ditch The Like Button

If you’re using Twitter (rules vary from Twitter to Facebook/Instagram) I highly recommend that you ditch the ‘Like’ button.

Twitter is an interactive platform so your best results will come from interacting with your followers. That’s one of the main differences between Twitter and other platforms. What does the ‘Like’ button say about you on Twitter?

  • I don’t have time for you so I’ll just press the like button instead of saying ‘thank you’ or interacting.
  • I’m not that interested in you so I’ll just press the Like button and hope that you read my posts.
  • I don’t understand algorithms and how they work so I’ll press the Like button and hope for the best.
  • I can’t be bothered to talk to my followers.

When scrolling down your twitter timeline you will see tweets from people you follow, sponsored (paid advertising) tweets and tweets that have been retweet by your followers.  You’ll never see a ‘Liked’ tweet!

The ‘Like’ button does have its uses though.  It’s a good way of saving tweets for future reference. Beyond that, I’m struggling to think of a good reason to use it on Twitter!

Free Advertising And Social Media Interaction With LincsConnect

I’ve said it many times before; the clue is in the name. ‘Social’ media should be exactly what it says in the title. Actually ‘talk’ to your followers.

There’s a TV advert for a room freshener implying that the character has gone ‘nose blind’.  In social media terms, if you post, post, post with no interaction your followers will see your posts but they won’t register in their mind.  However, if you ‘talk’ to your followers they’ll remember you as that nice person/business who takes an interest.  Obviously talking to your followers doesn’t mean telling them how good you are and what you have to sell them.  Instead, you need to show an interest in other people to let them know you care about them. Given time they will ask you what you do and what you have to offer.  As a result, you don’t need to do the ‘hard sell’.
