How to Use Social Media for Business: 2 SURPRISING Facts!

The world of Social Media can confuse anyone! If you find yourself searching for info on How To Use Social Media for Business, you’re certainly not alone.  There are so many different types of “tricks and tips” out there, but trying to keep up with them all can be a fulll-time job, and most people don’t have time for that.  I am constantly doing research on current Social Media Strategies and how to use social media to promote your business, and recently I came across an awesome article that shared some key points that anyone can apply to their social media strategy. (For two other Rockstar Tips, make sure to check out my recent post: 2 of the Best Social Media Posts for Engagement)

2 Surprising Facts to Boost Sales and Exposure!
2 Surprising Facts to Boost Sales and Exposure!

First off, let me admit, trying to make sales on social media can make you want to pull your hair out. Ads, posts, groups, images, tweets, you can spend a lot of time doing a lot of wrong things and get little results. You honestly have to take training in ads in order to have profiting campaigns running. There’s no way around it, unless you “luck out” on some sneaky strategy to get sales.

So I was SUPER surprised, AND excited to find out that the best social site to make sales is Pinterest! People are using Facebook to engage with people, NOT buy. They use Pinterest to search for what they want to buy, credit card in HAND. I found that so interesting, and will definitely be taking my Pinterest strategy a WHOLE lot more seriously now! Stay tuned for tips on what I figure out for a strategy!

One Huge Tip That Helped Me Breakthrough as a Mompreneur!

Are you a Mompreneur or hoping to become one? I longed for the days where I could work from home and be home with my kids 24/7 for a LONG time.  It seemed no matter WHAT I tried…..nothing worked for me.  I couldn’t figure out what was was wrong……I was smart, I was taking action, I was around the right people……what in the world was I doing in my business that was keeping me from having success? Find out the One Small Tip that helped me finally breakthrough as a Mompreneur, and how it changed my life forever, (and how it likely can change yours too!)below!

Don't Play Small! Allow yourself to SHINE as a Mompreneur!
Don’t Play Small! Allow yourself to SHINE as a Mompreneur!

Recently I had the honour to be interviewed for Marquel Russel’s “I Love Entrepreneurship” Podcast. Marquel is someone I have been following for over a year now, so to be interviewed by him was such a blessing! I talk about a lot of things I have overcome, and of course mindset. As you can see from my past post on Money Mindset Limitations and How You Can Get Over Them, I know that Mindset plays a HUGE role in anyone’s success at anything they pursue. But, the one thing I shared that I know has had a huge impact on my business and my life was from a 2 minute conversation I had with Diane Hochman.

I had been sharing with Diane that for as long as I could remember, I have always made myself “small” around people. Never really sharing my dreams, never really trying to stand out because I didn’t want to make people “uncomfortable. I wanted people to like me. Do you know what I mean? Can you relate to that? I knew that I was made for something huge….that I had SO much to offer, but I didn’t like how that would make other people “uncomfortble”…so I just played small, everyone was happy…my friends liked me…. win/win right? WRONG.

While I thought that playing small meant that people liked me and all was good, I was totally short-changing myself, keeping myself from my DESTINY and REPELLING the people that I truly could identify with…… and the kind of people who would encourage me to GROW….Not to play Small and be AVERAGE.

So when I started to explain this to Diane, she said to me (and I’ll never forget this! It may not be word-for-word but this is the just…) “If you continue to allow yourself to be small….you’re going to ONLY attract those people around you that are small. It’s as soon as you start to allow yourself to SHINE that you will begin attracting people into your life who are bigger, and people that allow themselves to shine as well.”

Wow. All along I thought if I allowed myself to shine that it would make people NOT like me and I’d end up ALONE. Instead I realized in that moment that I could be myself....and you know what happened? Diane was RIGHT. I’ve attracted the most AMAZING people into my life, and made the most life-changing long-lasting relationships that I could have ever imagined.

I wouldn't Give Up My Life as a Mompreneur for the world!

Allow yourself to shine! Be true to who you are and watch your life change! If you are a Mompreneur….don’t let ANYONE hold you back! You’ll be amazed.

2 of the Best Social Media Posts for Engagement

Social Media is constantly changing, and if you are a business owner, at some point or another you have likely found yourself asking “What are the best social media posts for my business?” We are constantly hearing about “interaction”, and being “engaging”, but sometimes the effort that you can end up putting into your posts just isn’t worth the (lack of) reward! So what are 2 types of posts that you should ABSOLUTELY be doing to ensure you’re at least with the pack? Read on to find out!

2 Things You Need to Be Doing On Social Media
2 Things You Need to Be Doing On Social Media

Every time you turn around there is a new training on Facebook ads, someone posting “can you see my posts” on their Timeline (PS, Please DON’T do that.) or a new webinar going on with the NEWEST strategy since Facebook changed their “Algorithm”. (Does everyone even REALLY know what that word means???) As you’ll see from my past post on Social Media Predictions for 2015, Social Media is ALWAYS Changing.

So to keep it easy for you, here are 2 types of posts that you absolutely want to be doing if you want to maximize your visibility and engagement…..(and if you want a good laugh….Here’s 10 Things You Should Never Post on Social Media from thedish.com) 🙂

1) Facebook Native Video: Wait – what does THAT mean? It means that instead of loading up your youtube video on facebook, you actually want to upload the original video direct in the post. Facebook favors original content on their platform, and will give you WAY more exposure. Trust me, it works!

If you are not using Video on Facebook, you’re missing out. Instead of a long post, shoot a quick 30 – 60 second video and upload it. People LOVE video and you’ll see your views go up fast. Share it on your Fan Page and use the “Boost Post” option to maximize your exposure! However, still upload that video to youtube….You want to get as much bang out of that video as possible!

2) Images are STILL key: You want to make as much use of images as possible. I know that most of us are making sure we are doing this, but this is even true on Twitter. Engagement goes WAY up when you use images with your Tweets. Also, in this day and age, there is no reason your images should not be eye-catching. Go to Canva.com or Pixabay.com and create or use the free images there. Take that extra few minutes to put the effort into your posts. **For a Rockstar tip on how to use awesome images on Twitter without spending a lot of time….make sure to watch the video below on the Best Social Media posts!**

If you are looking to build online but aren’t sure where to start, I encourage you to have a look at the system that I use to run my whole business online with ease. I am active in two home businesses, and use this system for my complete up-to-date training, my Funnel system and Capture Pages, My Client Relationship Manager, an additional residual income, and so much more! Take a look for 10 days, and let me know what you think!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, have fun with your awesome posts! Share this with those who need it, or comment below some of your engagement tricks!
