Hello! My name is Penelope Purple :)
I work for PurplePort, managing The Purple Blog and our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest). Each of these platforms is fantastic exposure, and they are all seen by thousands of people both on and off PurplePort.
How to get featured on The Purple Blog
Submit your blog post for publication on our blog
The Purple Blog is seen by thousands of people both on and off PurplePort, and all PurplePort members can create and submit their own blog posts for free. If we publish your blog post on our blog, not only will you get fantastic exposure, but we will also give you free PurplePort VIP!
Your blog post can be about anything you want to share with the world. It's a great way to share your experience and your fabulous work. If you'd like to create a blog post, check out How To Submit Your Own Content To The PurplePort Blog - Open To Everyone! which outlines some of the requirements for posts published.
If you’re stuck on how to make your blog post look or sound, browsing through previous posts on The Purple Blog can be a great way to pick up valuable tips and find some inspiration.
Be interviewed for our blog
We've interviewed some hugely talented PurplePort members over the years (you can find some of these interviews here), and we'd love to hear from more of you! Pop me a message on PurplePort if there's someone in particular you think would be great featured in an interview on our blog (or perhaps you'd like to nominate yourself!).
How to get featured on our social media platforms
We love sharing the incredible work of our talented PurplePort members, especially on our social media platforms!
Add keywords tags to your images
Whilst we thoroughly enjoy sharing images from our Front Page Image (FPI) Collection, we also use the Image Search feature to find fantastic images based on keywords (if you've never used this feature, check out How to Search for Images using Tags and The PurplePort Guide to Image Tags). So we can find your interesting, unique and stunning work more easily, make sure to add correct and relevant keyword tags to your images :)
Disable members only portfolios and images
We can't share any images marked as Members only, nor can we share portfolios marked this way. So if you'd like your work featured on our social media platforms, make sure these options are disabled on your portfolio and images.
Add your social media accounts to your PurplePort account
We always try our best to tag our member's social media accounts when we post their beautiful work on our social media channels. If you'd like us to tag your social media account, make sure you include this in either:
- The External Links on the right-hand side of your PurplePort account
- Your portfolio notes (make it REALLY clear, so we don't miss it!)
The simplest and easiest way to add all your social media accounts (and other links) is using your Prpl.pro page (available exclusively to PurplePort members). You can add your Prpl.pro page to your External Links or portfolio notes. Check out my Prpl.pro page :)
