At the start of BCM 114 I was trying to reframe my digital artefact in a way that would create more interaction with my Instagram audience. I was trying to find new ways to showcase my work and ways that would be interest students. However, I couldn’t seem to do what I intended.
I spoke to some of my friends at Uni and we realised that we all had the same problem. We all needed to grow our DA and to do something that interested us. So we collectively decided to combine all of our digital artefacts, our talents, our passions to create:
Chàe Magazine – a digital online magazine dedicated to helping students during their time at University.
When we started growing our instagram and twitter, we wanted to ensure that we were going to talk about topics that our followers wanted. So through various polls, we were able to interact with our followers, whilst also understanding what they were most interested in seeing.
On our Instagram and Twitter accounts we use various hashtags to target a specific audience. I have also tried this with our Instagram highlight posts and from this we can get almost 200 people viewing our stories and almost 300 impressions.
We have been able to reach a lot more people on twitter and instagram as seen from the Analytics below.
In finalising our digital artefact we have been very happy with the feedback and interaction we have been receiving from our followers. We have been able to grow our page a lot more than our individual DA’s. In the future our goal is to grow our audience more and one day start monetising our Digital Artefact.
