A great way to relax!

Happy Monday friends!

Here at Game Set Social we strongly believe that you have to work hard but you also have to relax hard. Relax hard? What is that you ask?  Relaxing hard is something you do when you block out thoughts of your day to day work and do something that relaxes and inspires you. Some people like to lay on the couch and watch t.v. some people like to cook. I like to hike! This past weekend I took a short drive with some good friends to Point Dume in Malibu and spent a few hours trekking, breathing in the fresh air, and absorbing the fantastic views. Take a look.

This hike was filled with jokes, silence, and just overall enjoyment. There is something about stepping out of the city and watching mother nature live. One of my favorite parts of this excursion was getting to the top and seeing other families enjoying each others company and taking in the view.

I find it extremely unfortunate that so many people don’t take advantage of their free time to unwind. Walking around for an hour and a half gave me the recharge I needed and I still got home in time to watch the come back of the Black Mamba….Kobe Bryant!

Ways to prepare your social media pages for the holidays!

Happy December!

I don’t know about you, but as soon as December hits I am immediately overcome with the need to immerse myself in all things holiday-related. In fact, earlier today I spend  $62.00 on Christmas paraphernalia at Big Lots. Oops! (but really, who doesn’t need a 12 inch statue of a snowman family chiseled in wood?)

While I could stay on the topic of home decor for quite some time, I am here to discuss how to spruce up your businesses’ social media pages for the holidays! This can be beneficial to both you and your fans!

According to Mashable, 65% of users tap social media in search of the perfect gift! The holidays are a great time to personalize your social media pages and build a stronger connection to your fan base!

Below you will find a list I stumbled across on social media examiner to help you get started:

1: Create holiday-themed cover photos

2: Spruce up your profile photo

3: Run seasonal social campaigns

4: Decorate your app thumbnails

5: Schedule holiday-related Facebook Ads

You can check out more details on how to execute these tips here.
