NZ Silver Ferns Trialists
A special mention must go out to Storm, Phoenix and Kayla who will be trialling for the Silver Ferns this week.
A squad of 25 will assemble in Auckland today. The trials will run through to Friday and from this, a Silver Ferns squad will be selected to compete in the Netball Quad series and the Taini Jamison Trophy.
With the Common Wealth games quickly approaching a solid season with the Silver Ferns this year could go along way to cementing their spot in that team.
A development Silver Ferns squad will also be named. These squads will be announced on August 8th.
Social Media Tips & Tricks
1. Hashtags are still a very useful technique for gaining new followers and increasing engagement. Many celebrities and businesses have had great success by creating unique hashtags, by doing this it enables your followers/fans to feel involved and continue your movement by using your hashtag.
2. Using engaging captions is another technique for increasing engagement and your following. Both Instagram and Facebook promote posts that have high activity. By using engaging captions that get your followers commenting it will increase your posts natural momentum. An easy way to achieve this is to simply ask a question in your caption.
3. Regular posting is key for increasing your following. No one wants to follow someone who posts once every couple of weeks and by also not posting regularly you will lose any natural momentum you have gained. Remember if you are ever lacking content you can use a throwback Thursday, flashback Friday or a giveaway.
