✨ On the first day of December TechPixies gave to me…

🎁 Exquisite scarves, clothing and home decor from @biancaelgar

From wardrobe staples to painterly silk scarves, screen-printed lampshades to embroidered cushions, the Bianca Elgar portfolio is a peek inside the mind of a passionate creator. Bianca designs with women in mind; clothes that artfully drape and flatter the natural contours of the body, prints that reflect the individuality of the wearer and innovative product developments designed to prove that style can be both inspiring and accessible to all.

✨ Bianca came to TechPixies earlier this year as she wanted to take charge of her own marketing. Through Tech Pixies she has developed her digital marketing skills and she now feels that all her communications are much more "on brand", truly reflecting her ethos and personality.

🌟 Last week Bianca donned her brave pants and went live on Instagram for the first time. 🎉 Amazing work Bianca, we are so proud of you and all you are achieving. 🌟 We raise a glass 🥂 to you and celebrate with the obligatory @techpixies Christmas dance 💃🏽🎄 🎄

Bianca is offering 10% off to all TechPixies followers using code TECHPIXIES. 🦌 Go and take a look and support a TechPixies Business this Christmas. 🎄

🎁 What gifts will you buy?

Which platform is your go to for online shopping?⠀

Are you a Googler, do you love Instagram shopping or are you one of the 416 million monthly active users who likes to shop on Pinterest?⠀

Our students will be learning all about the visual search engine Pinterest next week - the 3rd largest search engine after Google and Youtube.⠀

Did you know that 84% of Pinners use Pinterest to actively shop and 83% of Pinners make a purchase after seeing something on Pinterest?⠀

The great thing about Pinterest is that most users are already a ‘warm’ audience as they have come to the platform to search for solutions to problems. This may be to look for a gift, a pair of shoes, interior design inspiration or advice and guidance on a particular subject.⠀

So, as we enter ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ (or so the song says) will you be heading over to Pinterest?⠀

This December TechPixies will be showcasing some of the many wonderful businesses set up by our TechPixies students. Do keep an eye on our page for your daily festive shopping inspiration throughout December and support our TechPixies community. ⠀

Oh happy days! The first Sunday of Advent and my @bicyclebloomsoxford Christmas Wreath is up on my door!!!

And... I have already run 6km! My running coach @andy_galway will be pleased. Listened to a fabulous podcast by @amyporterfield with @seekwisdompcw (episode 348 on the #onlinemarketingmadeeasy podcast).

And... I ran the tech for my church, which thankfully has never stopped. As the #TechPixies Zoom account isn’t used on the weekends, I lend it to the church. Who knew we’d still be doing online church nearly 9 months later. So many UK churches have stopped completely due to the pandemic, which makes my heart so sad because faith - no matter what faith you have - matters, especially in a time like this.

And... IT IS THANKSGIVING!!!! Well it is for me anyway... we always celebrate on the weekend because the Brits don’t really do it (although I hear it is a thing in London now).

I love Thanksgiving- even more than Christmas- as it doesn’t come with gifts, only a thankful heart. I am thankful for all the TechPixies, for our amazing team, for the generous investors and my friends and family who have always believed in me and for my faith especially, which has got me through good times and bad.

Happy Thanksgiving. Tell me what you are thankful for in the comments!!

✨ Is yours one of the 500 million Tweets that will be sent today?⠀

This week our students will be keeping their messages short and sweet as they learn all about the “micro blogging” platform Twitter, the platform that gives users only 280 characters to share information on a diverse range of subjects from personal interests to the latest trending news stories.⠀

With around 350,000 tweets sent every minute these constant conversations can make it hard to cut through the noise and find content around subjects you are actually interested in. Using Twitter Topics allows you to follow specific topics as well as people that often tweet about related topics.⠀

Twitter provides access to millions of users, and businesses can leverage this to reach potential customers and raise their brands profile by regularly engaging with their audience. ⠀

A great way of doing this is by joining regular Twitter Chats, conversations that often take place at a set time each week or month on the platform. They are often about a specific subject and are a brilliant place to build relationships and promote products and services (but do be careful not to over promote!)⠀

Enjoy learning about all this fast-paced platform has to offer. Twitter can often seem daunting at first but do pop on over and tweet hello to our very own Twitter expert, Sharon @oneoffginger - keep your eyes peeled for motivational penguins! 🐧⠀

Will you be Tweeting this week?⠀

Which platform do you use for your online professional networking?

🧑‍🤝‍🧑 For many of you Instagram is a brilliant space to make connections and build your community but if you are looking to change career, start a business or return to work then the platform with 675 million monthly users and over 20 million company pages, LinkedIn is THE place to be.

💻 LinkedIn can feel like the most daunting of social media platforms because of its professional nature, however it can be the most critical to help build a freelance and business network for anyone looking to return to work or start a business.

You can use your LinkedIn profile to showcase all of your skills and experience and you can create company pages to connect with a professional and business based audience.

If you are using LinkedIn to look for work here are a few of our Top Tips:

⭐ Create an All-Star Personal Profile to ensure you are easily found if someone searches for someone just like you (the course will guide you through the steps to do this).
⭐ Ensure you turn OFF the “People Also Viewed” Feature (this shows someone looking at your profile other people just like you! Not ideal when you are a job seeker!)
⭐ Use your Connections when applying for roles
⭐ Save Job Alerts
⭐ Get Recommendations from past colleagues, employees, managers or peers.
⭐ Connect with and Grow your network by engaging on the platform - comment on posts, write or share articles and connect with others.

We look forward to connecting with many of you over on LinkedIn this week. 👉

💻 But first tell us, is your LinkedIn profile up to date? 👇

Today is #worldkindnessday2020 and the lovely (and kind) TechPixie Chaela Hall popped by to drop off @newrivern22 candles for our FAB Sparkly Gift Boxes!

We had a socially distanced coffee ☕️ played the ukulele 🎸 and chatted about websites.

Lockdown 🔐 is tough but it is important to still connect with others and show kindness!

I can’t promise that my rendition of ‘Joy to the World’ will be kind to your ears (it was my first go at it and I have only been playing a few weeks!) but I do know one thing, the world is a better place to live in when people are kind to each other!

Cheers to turning 41!

Thank you to all the lovely #TechPixies who created the best birthday video ever!

Thanks as well to those of you who have donated to @savetherhinointernational via my #londonmarathon fundraiser which has launched for the 2021 race! (Link in bio)

41 for me is going to be about working less while having a bigger impact, spending more time with the ones I love, and running for the Rhinos!

I am sooooo grateful for my beautiful life, my supportive family, my dear sweet friends and this amazing community.

Ubuntu! People are people because of other people. Even in a pandemic, we have the power to stay positive and open minded and make the world a better place!!! Thanks for making me feel so special and loved even though we are locked down.

Thanks @amyporterfield for the Prosecco! I have saved it for today. Thanks for changing my life and showing me how to help others!
