Many people out there think that having a strong brand is only meant for big corporations and 6 figure business, but this is most certainly not the case.
.
Building a brand identity for your business is crucial if you want to communicate with your target audience successfully, whether you’re a growing solopreneur or part of a 10 person team.
.
A great way to build your brand is through social media, as it allows you to connect with your ideal community while establishing your business brand where potential clients/customers are most likely to hang out online.
.
Today I wanted to share a few ways you can start building a brand through social media: .
1️⃣ Identify suitable platforms for your business. .
Before deciding which platforms you will be using, do a little research to find out what platforms your audience use the most, where your current traffic comes from and what platforms your competitors use.
.
2️⃣ Develop your voice. .
To figure out the voice you want to use for your content, it is important to understand what you would like to be known for online. You’ll also need to decide how you will share your message and what value you’ll be bringing to your audience. It’s also good practice to think about 3 – 4 adjectives that describes your business’ culture. 📝

A common question that gets asked by new bloggers and website owners is: “What is the best Platform to use for my website?” 💻 .
Of course, there are a number of factors that needs to be considered when making this decision, and it’s not a choice you’ll want to be making without being properly informed. .
The website platform I wanted to look at today is Wix. Let’s see what this platform is all about: .
❓  What is Wix? .
Wix is a drag and drop website builder platform that is geared toward beginners. .
✅  The Pros: very easy and intuitive to use, no coding knowledge needed. .
❌  The Cons: limited designs and functionality, not very SEO friendly, no control of your hosting, costs between $5-$25/month. .
❌  Why we don’t recommend Wix: the limited design and functionality options mean that Wix is not the best platform to choose if you are a serious business owner. .
Wix is also limited in growth capabilities and if you’re planning to build a sustainable online business we would not suggest using this platform. .

This is hard for me to admit, but even after 6 years of running our shop as a full-time business, I still have self-doubt when we release a new product. 😬
.
“Will people like it? Am I doing enough? What happens if nobody purchases?” These are the thoughts that will run through my head.
.
As you can see, I’m certainly not perfect and it’s only natural for self doubt to pop up from time to time. But we cannot let it run our lives! And what really matters is how we choose to overcome it so that we are able to move forward no matter how terrifying it gets.
.
One way I am able to overcome self doubt as a #girlboss is to FEEL my feelings. ✨
.
It’s so important to feel our emotions when we’re facing self doubt. Don’t ignore these thoughts and act like everything is okay, but rather take the time to be honest with yourself about how you’re feeling.
.
I often ask myself questions like: “Why am I doubting myself? What is the absolute worst that could happen? If the worst should happen, is it really that bad?”
.
Answering these questions helps me gain clarity on my fears, and I’ll then come to realize that the worst that can happen actually isn’t as bad as I imagined. 🙌
.
We tend to build things up far more in our minds, where as in reality it may not be the disaster we thought it would be.
.
Acknowledging your feelings of self doubt will give you a fresh perspective that will allow you to move on with your day and continue doing the amazing work I know you’re doing! 👯
I think the most exciting part about choosing a new WordPress theme for your online space is the aesthetics.
.
Browsing through pretty themes is always fun because who doesn’t enjoy beautifully designed websites? .
However, the way a theme looks can either make or break your website, so it is important to keep this in mind before making the final decision on a theme.
💻 
A few things you’ll need to keep in mind are the elements of the theme – will the design work for your website? Is there enough room to show off your photography? Will the theme look as good once your content is added?
Have a good look at the theme’s demo to see if it will be a good fit for your site.
.
When looking at the design of a theme, you’ll want to keep your audience in mind as well. Perhaps you find a certain look appealing that your visitors cannot connect with.
.
You’ll want to make sure you choose a theme that will attract the customers you want while telling the story you want to tell. ⚡️ Getting this wrong will mean that you’ll be turning your target audience away, which is never a good thing for any business.
.
Rather take the time to make absolute certain that a theme has the elements most beneficial to your niche so that you can attract your dream customer/client and make sales! .

Are you trying to decide if you should purchase a WordPress theme? Purchasing a WordPress theme, while seemingly can feel overwhelming and downright maddening, doesn’t have to be a difficult task.
.
If you’re a newer business owner, you’re surely overwhelmed with #allthethings you have to do to keep your business going. Upgrading your WordPress theme may be the last thing on your mind, but get to that next level of business you’ll need to upgrade to a newer, better theme.

One that has all of the functionality you need as a business owner and blogger.
.
But you may be wondering, “how do I know if I’m ready to upgrade my theme?” Never fear, that’s why we’re here! 🙂
.
In this post, you’re going to learn the six signs to know if you’re ready to purchase a WordPress theme. Let’s get to it! ➡️ bluchic.com/purchase-a-wordpress-theme (link in bio @hibluchic)
As someone who has had her fair share of experience searching for the right theme for my website, I know what to look out for when making the final decision.
.
The frustration that came with choosing a theme that just did not fit with my site lead me to creating my own, which then became the inspiration to start Bluchic! ⚡️
.
Buying a new theme is not something that should be done without doing the proper research first. And there are definitely a few things you’ll want to consider if you plan to use the theme for a long time.
.
🔑  A key factor to consider when choosing a theme is whether or not you’ll be able to customize it to fit in with your brand. Can you add your own logo? Will it be too difficult to change the colour palette and font style?
.
These are important questions to answer if you want your website to stand apart from everyone else using the same theme, and if you want the theme to remain consistent with the branding of your business.
.
It’s also a good idea to find out if you will need any sort of coding knowledge to customize the theme. If you don’t have any technical experience, we would not recommend choosing a theme that will require you to alter the backend code in order to customize it the way you want. Doing this on your own can quickly turn into a disaster!
.
