Commitment to Social Media in Your Business

Commitment to Social Media

Commitment to success is pretty standard for most business owners. But how about your social media?

However, how is your commitment to social media looking ? Pretty high Or are you going to give up within 6 months?

I get it, social media isn’t what it used to be and let me tell you, it ain’t gonna get much better or any easier. So what are you going to do about it? Sit and cry or put big your big girl panties on and just get on with it? As a business owner you have to get used to the pitfalls of running your own business. So stand up, brush yourself down and let’s get committed to making social media work for your business.

Your commitment to social media

Let’s get you committed. Not literally, but lets pledge your commitment to social media today. I want you to stop faffing around and commit to posting on 2 social media platforms. Which 2 will you choose and remember, where is your audience?

What are you willing to commit to? For myself it’s different. I post on my clients social media platforms dependant on what they pay me to do. For my own, i post several times a day. On Facebook at least 3 times a day, on twitter at least 10 times a day and Instagram at least twice a day (but usually more.)

Devising a plan

Ok so you’re commitment to social media is now at an all time high. Now let’s devise a plan. Decide which platforms you’re going to use and when you’re going to post on those platforms. Remember, there is no right or wrong answer here, this is Your plan and knowing your limits. plan your commitment to social media

Once a month or week (i prefer weekly) sit down and get some content ready. Good content is essential, not just an image with 2-3 words. Great content along with great images will get you a long way on social media. Therefore you must be showing as giving value.

I’d love to hear below which 2 platforms you have chosen and how often will you post on them.

30 Day Social Media Challenge

social media challenge

Social Media Challenge

A 30 day social media challenge that is going to change your perspective on how you do social media and show just how many more people you can reach using social media.

Social media is about consistency, perservernce and a little elbow grease to make it work. I know it’s not easy and i know for some it’s a bit time consuming. BUT i am going to change the way you look at social media with this social media challenge starting in September.

How will the social media challenge work?

The social media challenge will take part within a Facebook Group. If you’re not on Facebook… well… i can’t see how you’re in business online. So, you’ll be put in a Facebook group just before the challenge begins and once payment has been made. The cost? A mere £47! Now some have told me that’s too cheap. Maybe it is. However, i wanted to make this affordable for new businesses and those that haven’t quite got to grip with how social media works. So i wanted it to cost no more than say ‘dinner and drinks out’

If you think £47 is too expensive, i’d like you to take a step back and ask yourself Why are you in business? If you can’t invest this small amount, my fear is you simply won’t be successful. I have businesses that invest £100’s in me monthly to help their businesses grow and to keep their social media running and current. Those are the serious businesses.

Now i’m not saying you’re not serious, but you are being a tight arse if you won’t invest this. Drop 2 take aways and invest in this instead. Your business needs this.

What will you achieve through this challenge?

This social media challenge is not only going to grow your numbers on social media, but you’ll get more eyes on your business and social media platforms. You’re going to engage with these new people and build relationships. New relationships on social media take anything from 2-6 months to form properly and only then do you stand a chance of earning any money from these relationships.

Social media is a constant ongoing thing that you CANNOT pick up and drop when you feel like this. This right here is why people pay me what they pay me.

Who’s game???? Find me on Facebook Here and let’s connect. Send me a message on messenger and let’s you get you set up. Know anyone else that might be interested in this or needs it? Give them my details.

We’re going to end this year on a high!

Social Media Nightmares and How To Avoid Them

Social Media Nightmares and How To Avoid Them

Nightmares are scary and making mistakes happen, but when you make mistakes on Social Media, the whole world seems to find out!

Here are a couple of mistakes people are making daily on social media and how you can avoid them.

  • Typo’s, spelling mistakes and grammar. Well we all make spelling mistakes when we are rushing or reading back on content too quickly whilst checking for errors before sending it out. You need to take time out and re-read your content before throwing it out there (what are the chances i publish this and there is a typo in this blog post now lol) Grammar, seriously this is my massive bug bear. People can’t get their there, they’re and their’s right and stuff like that makes my blood boil a bit. If you’re in business, you need to be getting these minor things right. If you are dyslexic or have a problem of that nature, maybe consider someone else to write your copy?

    Need Help With Your Copy? I’d love to help.

[tweetthis]Even when you’re careful, spelling and grammar mistakes happen. Don’t sweat the small stuff, learn from your mistakes. [/tweetthis]

  • Public annoyances or awkward customers. I don’t believe there is such a thing as a customer base that is 100% satisfied, mistakes happen on the business side of things and sometimes a customer just isn’t happy. What do you do? You take a massive breath (or two) and calmly deal with this customer. They may be writing all over your social media platforms complaining and moaning, all you can do is try and calm them down and if you were in the wrong, own up to your mistake. Do NOT get into an argument with a customer, they’ll never be your customer again if you do. Try and take the conversation offline if you can or to email, where nobody else will see the grumpy customers words.

Schedule Your Day ~ Why Business Owners Must Schedule

Schedule Your Day ~ Why Business Owners Must Schedule.

Are you running around like a loon day to day, getting your work done in snippets, snatching time here and there? Yep, been there and done that, but not anymore, (well maybe sometimes)

Gone are the days when i am running around like a headless chicken, i now have a fancy diary and write in it with the jobs i need to achieve and if i’m really good i’ll even schedule my day hour by hour and it always amazes me how much i get done on the days i am super organised.  I even schedule in my house chores too if i know things need doing and it’s going to be a busy day.

How Will You Schedule Your Day?

There are a bunch of online schedulers, it all depends on what your preference is. I am a pen to paper kinda girl, but some of you may prefschedule your dayer an online schedular, here is a list of some that are available.

Ask yourself these questions:

How do i balance work/family life?

How do i stop putting off things i don’t want to do?

How to i increase productivity?

These are just a few of the questions entrepreneurs ask themselves and some of you have been in business a while, but i bet you’re still asking those questions some days right? The answer is simple, schedule your day and the questions will start answering themselves. Being a little organised can go a long way, take it from me, who can easily go from one project to the next without finishing any of them. Not now though, if i say i am writing a blog, i finish the blog. If i say i am designing 5 images, then that’s what i do.

Schedule Your Day ladies and gents and get productive.
