Here it is people....
My social media personality quiz!
If you have come here via Instagram then you will know what this is all about!
If not, then you will wonder what I am saying if I say you are a goat on social.
I have created 7 different social media personalities and they each have their own mascot. Pukeko, Weta, Dragon, Dinosaur, Kitten, Goat and Zombie.
Now, what is the aim of this?
Well. Two reasons. One - because it's fun.
Two, because if you realize what personality you are online then you can help this inform your social media business strategies. For example, if you find out your are a Zombie, then the platforms Instagram and Twitter may not be for you as they require constant engagement and need to be posted to daily. (Zombies do not engage or comment very much!)
Complete my 10 question quiz to find out what you are! ALSO: Here is a printable version for ya.
