Many clients and friends are watching social media today, viewing some pretty amazing things on mobile devices and computers because of the technology available today. But many businesses are waiting to fully utilize this tool to ‘see how things are going to go’ because they’re so busy trying to handle what they do best in their profession…it seems we need to find a way to break or jump into the frenzy cycle somehow! But the changes are sometimes overwhelming; how do we do it all?
My question to you: do you feel like you know what you’re doing or do you need a strategic plan to enhance your business lifestyle by utilizing this diverse tool?
Google just began a new phase of changes last year that affect all users according to Google’s decision on what we need as users. Amazing control!!! Is it really in our control? Is it something we just have to accept and adapt to? The answer is YES to both questions and the HOW TO: part comes via assistance from those who are running the race in social media. If you’re a business owner like I am, the idea of learning a new program or developing another phase of content for my website was somewhat overwhelming, but I knew I had to press on in order to be successful in the current marketplace through technology.
Need some ideas to make learning fun and efficient?
- Remember that continued education is what keeps you moving forward in business so look at it with an attitude of “Hey, I still got this”.
- Invest your time and money in a class that directly affects your business and take a friend or employee with you.
- Ask a younger person you respect in business for input and ideas on what they see as successful, then begin to update your marketing accordingly.
- Find out what matters most in the advancement phase of your list and start there to exercise your muscles then you will begin to see the results!
