Just heard this ‪#‎SocialMedia‬ comment: "See what's working for them and duplicate it."
I REALLY disagree with this! Yes, it's ok to see what's working for other people in your niche, in your industry, but I REALLY believe that you have to develop your OWN VOICE!

If you just copy what other people in your niche are posting, then people are not getting to know the REAL you and quite honestly, you will not see the results that you were hoping for!

Friends, don't copy what works for someone else on Social Media! Find your voice! Find what's unique about YOU and then post that! ‪#‎BeDifferent‬ ‪#‎BeWorthFollowing‬

Just spent the morning working on some details for my #FacebookAds webinar tomorrow! Here's a key tip: Don't create ads just to "sell something." Instead, create ads that invite people to your community and culture. Give them the opportunity to get to know you and trust you. Once they do, they will then buy from you! #PPCAds #SocialMediaMarketing

I have the opportunity to work with a variety of small business owners on a daily basis. And as many of us know, when you are building your business, you just don't always have the money to attend niche specific conferences. As much as your heart and soul would love to be there, the money just isn't in the budget! Believe me, I get it!

Remember this:
1) There are MULTIPLE industry related books out there that you can read and that don't cost as much as attending a conference would. Get into the habit of reading.

2) Many times, the speakers at those conferences, have books, freebies or low cost items based on what they are speaking on. Get those!

3) 99% of these conferences utilize a hashtag. Follow the hashtag on social media. Get a variety of tips and such from people who are actively sharing what they are learning.

4) Many conference attendees will write a blog post about their biggest takeaways. Read those posts!

Don't despair when your budget will not allow you to attend the conferences that you long to attend! There are other ways to get the information that you are looking for!

Know what your priorities are. Know what your goals are. Don't fall prey to "what everyone else is doing." Do what's right for you, your business, your budget, your family!

This could be the best present you give yourself this year!

Does this sound familiar? You are wanting and NEEDING to make extra money, but you are not quite sure how to do that while still living into your priorities. You need a new stream of income.  You need to learn a new skill that will help expand your “expertise.” You need to do something!

This morning, I'm just overwhelmed in a good way by all of the messages I have received from those who have been in my #SocialMedia managers training course. The doors that are opening for them, the BIG steps that they are taking, and the fears that they are overcoming is just mind blowing. It's amazing what can happen in community on social media. 

So with that said, here's a few "tips" when it comes to succeeding on social media:

* Stop obsessing over the numbers. Instead, focus on those who are already a part of your community and give them your absolute BEST!

* Stop obsessing over having a post go viral. That is what I call, "The Myth of Viral Marketing." Stop looking for that one post that will bring you thousands of likes, shares, and comments. Instead, look for ways to help and bring value. When you do that, numbers will come.

* Stop obsessing over what your competitors are doing. You do your own thing. You #BeDifferent. You #BeWorthFollowing. People will notice. 

* Stop obsessing over perfection. Just do it. Just get that video out there. Just reach out to that person you have been meaning to contact. Just take that course. Just write that blog post.  Stop waiting and just live your life!

The end. :-)   #SocialMediaTip #SocialMediaTips

Did you know that over 1 BILLION people log into Facebook every month? And did you know that the average login lasts about 40-minutes? With numbers like these, the hard-core truth is that it’s getting harder and harder to get your content seen by your community, your ideal client. There is SO much noise on Facebook that it’s getting even more critical that you share content that will help YOU stand out from the rest! And one of the things t...

#SocialMedia Tip: Get clear on your unique main message! Once you are clear on that, infuse that message in all you do on social media.

    Social Media Specialist and Project Manager, 2013 - present
    As the Social Media Specialist for iBloom, I LOVE helping businesses, both large and small, with strategy, implementation and monitoring of their online presence. Social media provides business owners a unique opportunity to make a positive and personal impact on their audience! It is truly my joy and passion to help businesses utilize social media platforms in ways that will create an awareness of their business. Furthermore, I want businesses to see how social media can be an avenue where business owners can build relationships with clients that will turn a business into a life changing community! I also really enjoy bringing order out of chaos while implementing and sustaining the mission and goals of an organization. I love new projects and challenges and might be a bit OCD when it comes to doing everything with efficiency and promptness!

Introduction

As the Social Media Specialist for iBloom, my passion is to help businesses, both large and small, with strategy, implementation, monitoring and training of their online presence. I have been able to assist a variety of businesses in creating their brand awareness on one of the largest social media platforms. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to not only train and work with a recognized Forbes Top 20 Social Media Influencer, but I also had the opportunity to train and help a variety of business owners on a variety of social media topics including:


Social Media Content Management
Social Media Lead Generation
Twitter Strategies
Facebook Strategies
List Building Using Social Media
Social Media Strategy Development
Facebook Advertising

As a former Senior Social Media Account Executive for a social media marketing firm, I had the opportunity to lead a team who worked collaboratively on a variety of corporate accounts. These accounts included: 

* taking a client from the "concept" stage of development to a large interconnected social media platform. Within a 90-day social media growth campaign, I helped generate 17,000 new Facebook likes and 18,000 new Twitter followers. 

* developing, building and managing a social media strategy for a business school whose social media platform was ranked as the 16th best across all accredited business schools (700+). 

* developing from scratch the social media presence for a leading travel agency that has over 150 travel agents working in several offices across the southeast. I helped manage the content, growth, and engagement on Facebook and Twitter. The company now dominates most of the competition with 25,000 likes on Facebook and 16,000 followers on Twitter. 

I am the author of: “My Soul Mission: A Step-by-Step Guide to Helping Students Discover Their Unique Soul Mission." I am also nearing completion of my Doctorate in Curriculum Development/Instructional Leadership.
