Well hiya! Hey, we’re friends, right? And friends share secrets. I have a big one that I just can’t keep to myself anymore.
The majority of people I talk to who want to market their business more online, or create an online side hustle, or even build their audience for books and blogs, are still thinking of social media marketing as something that is not right for them.
Here’s what I hear a lot …
- I don’t see how social media marketing can help my business
- I just don’t have the time
- I can’t believe that people really want to know about me
- I don’t want to appear vain
- I’m not sure what to post or when
I’m here to tell you that social media is the best form of marketing there is right now, pure and simple.
And here’s the truth …
Social media marketing is just that — social. People are curious. We want to know what other people are doing and how they do it. Even the most basic things are of interest — your morning routine, how you balance your professional and personal life, what scheduling apps you use, how you get your kids to sleep.
By sharing these parts of your life and work, you create an audience — your audience — of fans who will love and listen to you. Most important, they will be there when you have something you really want them to hear, such a new service, blog, or book.
Are you making these mistakes?
