“Practice what you post…”
You have probably noticed that I am pretty active and open on social media. It hasn’t always been like this. In fact I am a pretty private person. But long before the internet started I learned the three secrets of (offline) success:
- It’s not about you
- Always provide added value
I still apply these principles to everything I do, both online and offline. Without realizing it, this is how I built my personal brand, how I get lots of free publicity and, as I recently found out, ended up in the top 10% of social media influencers worldwide.
I have created a free 7 day challenge to share my knowledge with you…
Are you OK with your social media posts being ‘good enough’? Or do you want them to be exceptional, like you are?
The good news is that producing really good posts does not require more time, resources or knowledge. It’s mainly a mind-shift. In the free challenge you’ll get an hour worth of inspiration, tips and examples. In this newsletter I have collected 5 minutes of inspiration’: examples of extraordinary social media posts and interaction. Enjoy!
Small budget, huge results
A common misconception is that you need to invest a lot of money to be successful on social media. Nope, you just need to engage people. This video is a great example.
Obermutten; a tiny Swiss village went global with an investment of only $10,000
Examples of surprising corporate interaction:
Social media is not just about posting. It’s about interaction. The best impressions are made by reaction to posts about you/your company in a personal and/or creative way.
Why not use your network name to send a message?
