Wow, another eventful week here at WeAreTENZING! The Hurricanes had a record breaking score against the Cheetahs this weekend, with Vince getting his second hat-trick of the season. Vince has now surpassed Tana Umanga’s 20 year-old single season scoring record for the Hurricanes. Storm returned from injury to beat the Mainland Tactix in Nelson, and Kayla was instrumental in an upset win over the Northern Mystics last week. Ricardo has landed in Japan for the Ichinomiya Chiba Open which starts today. Well done to everyone for an awesome week and good luck to those competing this week! Remember, if you or a team member you know has done something amazing, please let us know and we’ll try to get it in the next instalment.
Open My Brain
Tom English has just launched his new website called Open My Brain.
Open My Brain is dedicated to breaking down the stigma surrounding Mental Well-Being. The website will include several vodcasts, articles and interviews with different elite sportspeople, CEO’s and your everyday Joes as they share experiences and understand how individual mindsets deal with life’s pressures.
Tom has just published his first article on the website, I would highly recommend checking it out!
Social Media Tips & Tricks
1. Not every post has to be fresh – find some time to take a few different photos and then you can post them on days when you are low on content to keep your page updated regularly. This weekend we helped Kayla take some images for a shoot and she was able to get many different looks which she can share to her followers over a few weeks. The best part is it only took us an hour to get some good snaps. If anyone needs a hand with capturing content, Adam Thomson is a great photographer and is here until the end of the week. Let us know if you want him to shoot you.
2. Everyone knows one of the most basic yet effective ways to grow followers is through the use of hashtags. I would suggest that everyone tries to incorporate these in their posts. If you are ever stuck for hashtag ideas you can use the website or app called tags for likes.
Four to Follow
This week we have four new team members who are all unique in their own way and are definitely worth a follow on social media.
Anjuli Mack – Health and fitness advocate and model, Anjuli has just joined the WeAreTENZING team. Richie Hardcore – Is a Muay Thai Coach with a mission to raise awareness on confronting and inspiring topics. Ricardo Christie – is New Zealand’s most recognised pro surfer with a big love for the coastal environment. Jess Quinn – is a cancer survivor, and powerful social influencer who’s posts are sure to move and uplift you.
The Benefit of Good Content
A couple of weeks ago we spoke about how simple but beneficial creating good content can be.
At the time, the example of Ambers photo in Tahiti, pictured above was used. Since then this photo has been shared by GoProanz.
As a result of this, Amber gained a whole bunch of new followers. The chart below shows Amber’s follower rate over the last month. The large spike occurred once Amber’s photo had been shared by GoProanz. From this, you can clearly see the benefit of creating good content and it getting seen and shared by these large companies.
Well done Amber!
