Social strategy whaa..?

I’ve always been the person that looks at bad websites, lame instagram accounts and sparse twitter feeds with despair. Even worse, I’ve spent many a social media session spiralling down spectacular sites and getting lost in beautiful photography saying to myself “I could do that.”

It wasn’t until I started putting together this website… that I realised social media is hard! #whinge

My name’s Nate. I write songs for Homeward Found and it wasn’t until I started putting together this website and the attached social media shtuff that I realised social media is hard! #whinge

Amusingly, I did a little research (if we millennial’s can really call a quick google search research) and stumbled across a load of companies that do the whole social media thing for you. There was this one particular place, blog.hootsuite.com, that were kind enough to be sharing their wisdom: 7 steps to promotion perfection! Amazing I thought I can do 7 steps. You would think! I clicked on one document download, to help me schedule my posts, and I fell apart! Gimme a blank sheet of A2 any day, but a google sheets calendar sent me awry with no return address..

So here I am! Nate, singer/songwriter, lead vocalist for Homeward Found, social media disaster and proud supporter of all things encouraging. And here you are! Through no help of my own (my bad), our bands’ website. Check out our music, throw us a message, send an obscure hashtag our way and stay tuned as our album is debuting seriously soon!
