Share The Love Not The Post


Share The LovePicture this: You’ve just posted a picture to Instagram with the caption “Thank you all for coming to the show last night. Manhattan, you’re next.” You decide to share this post to your Facebook and Twitter as you usually do. Then you take a minute to look at your Twitter to see the post shows up as, “Thank you all for….instagram.com/p/ahjdjksha.” As you scroll, the majority of your Twitter feed looks similar. As you switch to Facebook you see the majority of your posts are Instagram shares as well making your feed primarily photos.

While we all have our favorite platform, and cross promoting from time to time can be successful, auto or constant sharing from one platform can effect your engagement on the others. Think of it like this, if all of your posts are the same across all platforms, why would a fan need to follow you on all socials? Fans could simply follow you on the one platform where you natively post and engage. Seeing a thread of fragmented thought followed by links tells the viewer you are not actively engaged or paying attention to the platform, making the them less likely to engage with your content.

Hi everybody! My name is Ali Meyer and I’m joining as The Orchard’s new Technical Recruiter. I’ve spent the last few years working at an agency recruiting software engineers, and I am very excited to help build out the team here.

Out Today by The Orchard: Fazerdaze, Take Me & More


Welcome again to our weekly segment, Out Today by The Orchard, where we give you the freshest finds from our labels’ new releases. This week have new material from New Zealand, a thrilling new film and a legendary surprise.

A wonderful label, Flying Nun Records is constantly putting out eclectic music from young acts that convey longevity in their momentum. In other words, when they put out a record from a new band, you know you’ll be hearing their name for years to come. Today is release day for New Zealander Fazerdaze‘s debut record Morningside, out on Flying Nun. The brain child of singer/songwriter Amelia Murray, Morningside is the creative culmination of years of songwriting done from Murray’s bedroom. The album is honest, approachable indie rock with the personality of a solo album and the sonic variance of a full band effort. If it sounds up your ally, stream it here and check out the video for ” Take it slow” below.
