In any digital leadership program, the most valuable asset is a business leader’s time. But among the most common reasons I hear as to why business leaders aren’t on social media is that they don’t have enough time. This is especially characteristic of this summer where vacations, remote working, new COVID-19 policies limiting in-person gatherings, and the postponement of reopening plans have left leaders and their teams even more strapped for content-production time.

In this month’s newsletter, we explore how executives and their teams can maximize the ROI of both executives’ time and their content.

News You Can Use

Instagram Retires The Swipe Up In Favor Of New Stories Stickers

Only users who are verified and/or have at least 10,000 followers can access this function. Use link stickers to drive traffic and engagement, as followers can now respond to these linked Stories.

Instagram Automatically Translates Text In Stories

Audiences can now tap on a Story to translate text into over 90 languages, though, as of right now, translations are only available for text with no capacity for direct audio conversion. Keep accessibility front of mind – use concise copy, add text in-app vs. embedded to the image, and add audio captions.

Facebook To Test "Facebook Reels" In The US

Users in the U.S. can use music from Facebook’s music library, a variety of effects, and editing tools to enhance content. Utilize short videos to maximize the visibility of your content across available surfaces.

Twitter Spaces Adds Co-Host Option To Help Moderate And Manage Rooms

Twitter continues to develop and improve their Spaces feature, with more options than ever to facilitate two-way audio. If you haven’t already – pilot an audio session on Spaces or another platform to get familiar with the format.
