Remember when you were a child and right about now, visions of sugar plums would be dancing through your sweet little heads?
And then we became grown ups!
I don’t know about you, but the visions that are dancing through my head at any given moment of the day usually have something to do with my business and how I can make that vision sweeter. Like sugar plums.
Visions of social media dance through MY head!
The challenge is how to make those visions as sweet as sugar plums. Because social media CAN be fun! AND effective. AND easy! Yes, you heard me….
Social media can be FUN, EFFECTIVE and EASY!
Let’s try an experiment! This week, pick your favorite social media channel for your business. Then create five posts that are relevant, fun and engaging. Include a clever pic or video that will go with each post. Then pick a time of day that works for you…for social media engagement, you might want to aim for early morning (7-9 AM) or mid afternoon (2-4 PM) and create reminders for yourself for each of these times/days. (There are ways to schedule your posts ahead of time but, if you are not familiar with those techniques, for now, let’s do it this way). Then, on each of the next five days, post one of the posts that you had created along with the photo, video or link. You can ask friends and family to share the posts to give them some traction. You may or may not get a lot of activity on your first posts but, the point of this exercise is to show you that with a little planning, creating and maintaining a social media presence for your brand/business can be fun and easy.
Try posting five times a week for the next month and then re-evaluate your results. Which posts got the most action? Which were not quite so compelling to your target audience? Review and learn from your take-aways. AND, see if each week the posting got a bit easier!
Practice DOES make perfect!
