Q & A With Our Two Sense.
Ever wish you could get advice directly from your favorite bloggers, brands, and businesses? We know we do, so we made it a mission to provide just that. We recently chatted with the always lovely Lauren and Mary Kate from fashion blog Our Two Sense about what social media branding means to them. Take a look!
For those who don’t know, what is the concept behind Our Two Sense?
The concept behind Our Two Sense is to offer cute fashion and beauty tips to girls and women of all ages. We hope to make your long mornings standing in front of the closet & mirror much easier! We also hope to offer the best beauty advice when it comes to daily routines, reviews on products, and so on!
When did you launch?
We launched May 1, 2016!
What techniques did you use to build your following on social media?
We try to post the most interesting and desired posts to gain followers on social media! We also like to follow people who follow other blogs - hopefully letting them know - HEY! We’re here too!
How would you rate the importance of your social media as a means to get people to your website?
Great question! Social media is a 10 on a scale of 1-10 on importance to attract people to your website/blog. Most of our subscribers and blog followers would have no clue that we even exist without Instagram and other social media platforms!
What do you find to be the most challenging aspect of managing social media?
It’s so hard to come up with awesome posts every single day. If you look at our Instagram, right now we post about 4-5 times a week which is something we're working on improving. We know most people want to see inspiring content daily! We hope to offer a lot more content and daily posts soon!
Do you have any tips, tricks, or general guidelines to ensure that your social media reflects your brand at all times?
Yes! We always try to stay true to ourselves and our style. We’ve vowed to never be an ambassador of a brand or style that we don't think reflect us as people or fashion bloggers. We never want to sponsor a product that doesn't work for us or that we think isn’t up to standards! We want our followers to know that what they get from us is REAL! Not just paid by brands or sponsors!
What advice do you have for someone who is interested in starting their own blog and/or social media presence?
My advice is to plan it out. Mary Kate and myself started planning our blog back in January 2016! 5 months before our actual launch! We were originally supposed to launch in March 2016 until we soon realized that 3 months of planning wasn't enough - especially for two working girls who were also in school! One major tip we always heard is to never run out on content! Good content is what keeps people coming back. Life throws so many curve balls - many days you don't have the time to write a blog post or take a picture for social media. So being prepared ahead of time & having posts/pictures ready is a MAJOR KEY!
