053 Simple 7 Step Social Media Plan

http://traffic.libsyn.com/bolderbusinesswomen/53_Aprille_Janes_Podcast.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadAn effective social media strategy is like learning to drive. Driving a car may seem like an optional life skill UNTIL you actually learn to drive. Then you realise just how vital it is to everything you do. 7 Step Plan Identify your Ideal Client. No. Really. Do it. What platforms are they active on? This may NOT be where you like to hang out. It’s where your client is spending time. Pay attention to what your audience cares about and add value to their conversations. Define measurable results you want for your social media time. Schedule your posts using a tool that will help you maintain a consistent presence. Schedule your personal engagement on a daily basis and put a time limit on it. Most importantly – BE YOURSELF.

As I mentioned in my last episode I was challenged about my use of the word ‘bolder’ and the baggage some people attach to that word. After observing Dr Goodall I now know exactly what it looks like when a Bolder Woman lives her life on purpose. Dr. Jane Goodall is an ideal example of the difference each of us can make if and when we are willing to take risks and seize opportunity. What about you? I firmly believe we each have something we need to be up to in this world. It may not be on as big a stage as Jane Goodall’s but there is a role for you. Someone, somewhere is waiting for what you have to offer. 3 Tips (From Dr. Goodall’s Mother) Be prepared to work really hard. Take advantage of opportunity. Never give up.
