Hello and welcome! What is “Be Social With Media”?
Let me introduce myself. I’m Mel and I have been a full-time award winning blogger, Instagrammer and avid Pinterester (is that even a word?) for 5 years now. It all started when we bought a house that needed renovating, so I began to read lots of DIY blogs and spent all my time on Pinterest.
I wanted to document our renovation, so I created my own blog – www.melaniejadedesign.com.
I am extremely passionate about my blog. It has grown into a full-time job, with my following on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and TikTok exceeding half a million followers. Increasingly, I found that I enjoy writing about and helping people with their social media and blogs just as much as I enjoy writing about interior design and this is where the idea behind Be Social With Media began.
Time and time again I get asked how I have made blogging and Instagram my full-time job. Be Social With Media aims to be a one stop social media shop to help you realise your ambitions and dreams, give up the 9 to 5 and carve a career for yourself that you wake up to every morning, raring to go.
Who is Be Social With Media For?
From Parenting Blogs to Fashion Instagrammers, Small businesses and people trying to create a brand. Be Social With Media is for anyone trying to find their way in the online world. I aim to help you with step-by-step guides, advice, top tips and guest posts from people who are already nailing social media.
So, where do I start?
Have you already started a blog and now want to monetise it? Have you got a thriving Instagram account and would like to extend your social media presence? Do you want to drive more traffic to your Instagram profile, Pinterest and Blog? Or is your ambition to write a blog but you don’t even know where to start…
I’m Melanie and I created Be Social With Media to help you thrive in an already saturated blogging and social media world. I can help you start a profitable blog and make a full time living from blogging and Instagramming. I can help you drive traffic to your blog (hint: not just through social media! Pinterest and SEO are far better traffic converters than any of the big social media outlets!)
I have been meaning to set this website up for a few years now and the only thing that was stopping me was Imposter Syndrome! Why would people want to come to me to help them create a successful and profitable blog?
I come from an IT background. For 10 years I worked in IT Support, Web and graphic designing and eventually IT Programme Management and have a Degree in Information Technology Management for Business. When I had my children, I took some time out from full time employment and we started renovating our home.
I started blogging and using social media to help promote my blog and I became slightly obsessed with it. I am absolutely fascinated by the social media world and I love writing my blog, it is my creative outlet which has turned into my full-time job. In 5 years, I have managed to amass over 250,000 followers, my blog regularly gets over 70,000 monthly views with a growing email subscription list and my Pinterest has over 17 million monthly views.
My blog has been nominated for several awards and I won the Best Home Styling Blog Category at the Amara Interior Blog Awards in 2021. I have a deep understanding of how Pinterest, SEO and social media can drive traffic to your blog and I can help take your blog from a little creative outlet to a profitable source of income.
I thoroughly enjoy writing blog posts on social media and blogging over on www.melaniejadedesign.com so I thought it was time to create a dedicated blog to this subject! My Inbox is often full of emails from friends and followers asking how they can make their blog successful, or gain a large following on social media, so this is what this website is for!
