Mainstreet HQ, Downers Grove – Taco Tuesday has been established as must-see content and the most recent invitee is living testament to the exclusive expert speakers Young Professional Network brings to Mainstreet.
In the first blog about Cyrus Mohseni’s recent visit to Mainstreet as a keynote speaker at Taco Tuesday he talked in detail about the importance of mental health.
In the latter half of Taco Tuesday Cyrus shifted his focus to a vital tool for REALTORS® who want to increase their visibility. If you guessed social media, you guessed correctly.
While presenting, he told the audience that he received a call from Meta. Yes, Meta as in the parent company responsible for both Facebook and Instagram. The call he received was to discuss his posting and how he schedules them.
Meta called Cyrus to help increase his engagement, not that he needs it per se with more than 73,000 followers on Instagram.
They offered Cyrus a couple tips that he shared with the attendees for Taco Tuesday. Check them out below.
1. Post Consistently – People worry about algorithm this and algorithm that; Cyrus said it is “vital to be as consistent as possible with the time of day and day of the week when posting.” So, for example, posting on Monday at noon and again at 6 p.m. each week will increase your posts engagements because they are being populated at the same time and on the same day. Meta software will recognize this as a pattern and populate user feeds using your content with more regularity.
2. Hashtag Specificity – While on his call with Meta, Cyrus learned about the use of hashtags and how to write them with specific intentions as well as how many to use in each post. Starting with quantity, he said “between three and eight hashtags at the most,” to keep the length of a post limited. Additionally, Cyrus made a point to address the specificity of each hashtag, stating, “that they should start broad in scope and narrow down in focus as the number of hashtags increases.”
Cyrus Mohseni delivered both value and relatability during his presentations. Mental health and social media are two topics he is well-versed in and it showed on Taco Tuesday.
