For Milly, drawing on her values as a not-for-profit founder has helped her to cultivate a highly engaged community of like-minded followers. With the help of Plann, Milly has been able to consistently show up for your audience and curate an aesthetic and authentic social media presence.

Growing A Value-Aligned Audience

Harnessing Authentic Storytelling

I think it just needs to feel natural and if it doesn’t feel natural, then don’t post it.

Tapping Into Content Pillars

When you have your content pillars sorted, you can figure out how you can create great content around them dilly-dallying into empty space.

Running multiple charities and businesses can be a juggling act. By leaning on Plann’s daily content prompts and monthly done-for-you content calendars, Milly is able to make sure she doesn’t miss an important holiday or seasonal moment (such as mental health awareness month).

Milly’s Top Tip For Brands On Instagram:

  • Be intentional about getting your personal brand out there:

    “As much as I like to believe that if you have a great brand, people then will find you, it doesn’t always work like that. There are so many people on Instagram but they aren’t always going to find you. So at the moment, I use hashtags predominantly, I often tag locations and tag other creators, but I also use Pinterest.”
