Teaching or speaking is by far one of my favorite activities. There is an adrenaline rush that comes when you can see the light bulbs popping on all over the room!
I teach people how to get results with social media in just 15 minutes a day. I always recommend setting a timer so you don't get sucked in. Social media can truly become a time trap instead of a profit center!
In this particular class, a woman raised her hand and stated, "It sounds like what you are telling us to do is all a time trap. What if I don't want to use social media for my business?"
Good question. The answer? Of course you don't have to use social media to market your business. There are many other great forms of marketing available. But social media can hit your specific target market, increase your ranking in search engines, and it's extremely cost effective if you spend your time on the right activities and set a timer.
But your competition is on social media. I don't think she liked my answer. Unfortunately, though, it's the truth.
I'm a gramma, I have a slow connection because of where I live, and I have more excuses than you can write in the snow. But here's the reality - if I want to expand my speaking career so I can impact more lives, social media is the place I need to be. And it's not enough to just be there... you have to know who to reach out to, what to say, and how to offer help or solutions that people are willing to pay you for.
