Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Vine, Snapchat …? And doesn’t Google have something now?
I say focus on you and your business first. Yes, social media can be important to your biz (and also kinda fun), but if you’re a tiny business and you’re just starting out, or if you’re a well-established business and you’re considering diving into the social media fray, remember this …
Your best marketing is always, always doing more of your thing.
Whatever that is, however it looks, you are almost always better off spending your time doing your thing than talking about it on Twitter.
Here’s why: When you do your thing–that thing you love and want to get paid more money to do–you get more happy clients. Happy clients refer more clients. More clients means more business and more opportunities to do that thing you love to do.
Not to mention, the more you do it, the better you’ll get at it. That means your happy clients will get even happier.
So do your thing. Do it a lot. Do it with love.
And if you want to shout how much you love what you do from the rooftops, or the Pinterest board, or Facebook group, then do that, too. But, only if it’s fun and easy for you.
Don’t torture yourself with social media. Life’s too short. Make it fun. And your ideal clients will flock to you. Every time.
Print it out and post it anywhere you need this reminder, above your desk, on the bathroom mirror, on your monitor, anywhere, or use it as a desktop wallpaper. Forward it to a friend who might need it, too.
