Social Media Day is Today
As I learned from Joel Comm when I interviewed him on the Live to Grind podcast, today is Social Media Day!
I almost flew out to Denver to join Joel for the event there!
But, I’m in Iowa this week scouting venues for YEC 2018!
Luckily to share with you, though, Laura Petersen from our team is representing at the event in San Diego.
Search #SMdaySD for photos of her, one of our mastermind participants Melissa Sue Tucker, and amazing people like Pat Flynn learning lots and networking with other great entrepreneurs.
That’s what it’s all about!
2 Takeaways for You & Your Business
Assuming you couldn’t make it to one of these events either, I asked Laura and Melissa for 2 core takeaways.
They shared that there was TONS of GREAT info on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and more.
But 2 things that stood out the most came from Social Media Examiner & Social Media Marketing World founder Michael Stelzner… about Facebook.
Wanted to share!
1. “Frequency is not the answer.”
Because of the Facebook algorithm, just posting more stuff does not make it effective. It does not make Facebook want to reward you. Facebook sees it more like spam.
So, instead of posting 8 times a day, post 2 times a day and make them GOOD. Make them share worthy!
2. “REFOCUS on community development and stop worrying about the big numbers.”
You don’t need a million followers to have a thriving, amazing business.
So, stop stressing about numbers (like Facebook likes/fans) and focus on building COMMUNITY.
The right numbers will follow.
Speaking of community, we’d LOVE you to join our private, free group on Facebook called the Live To Grind Community. Come on bye and say ‘hello’!
Sending you some social love!
Thanks for reading the Friday Funday. I truly hope you get value from this weekly digest of some big highlights from my “Live to Grind” world! 🙂
My goal is to impact 1 BILLION lives in a positive way by 2019 and to help 100 entrepreneurs hit their 6 or 7 figure goals this year alone.
I can’t do that by staying quiet…
I have to share, educate, inspire, and assist.
Please let me know what you find valuable so I can do more of it.
PS: Join me for fun and community on Facebook here.
