Our Secret to Keeping on Top of Industry Updates


February 25, 2022


Being a Social Media Manager isn’t all about posting content and writing witty captions (we wish!). There’s also a whole HEAP of new updates in the industry and it’s up to us to stay across them.

Other than following us on Instagram 😉 we’ve put together some of our top tips to keep you well informed and ready to ace Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any other social platform’s latest features!

Google Alerts

Our secret weapon…is Google Alerts! The best part is, it’s absolutely FREE.

You can set alerts for your own brand name, industry keywords, Britney updates, competitors or even leading experts names. Set it up to get delivered to your inbox daily (just like your once a day MSN chat allowance) and get updated on all the latest goss.

Industry Newsletters

Get your updates from social media industry experts to save yourself the time & effort of searching the web!

The best thing to do is to sign up for all of the leading expert’s newsletters. We know that some of our key industry experts have killer newsletters (ahem, ours is pretty good too. If you wanna. No pressure). So we’ve signed up to all the best ones to make sure we never miss a thing.

Here are some of our faves for all things social media: Social Media Today, Tech Crunch, Social Media Knowledge & Matt Navarra’s Geekout Newsletter.

Industry Experts

Next up. Follow relevant people from your industry on Instagram! That’s where everyone’s getting their news from nowadays, right?

As Social Media Managers, our fave to follow is Adam Mosseri, the Head of Instagram, who drops a whole heap of knowledge bombs about the platform!  I mean, if Tom of MySpace was still about he’d totally be in our top 8.

Get onto these and in no time you’ll be all over the latest social media updates and goss.

If you want to save the bother, we’ve gotchu. Subscribe to our newsletter and we’ll send the top 5 digital updates to your inbox every fortnight!

We hope this was helpful!
