Keep Chasing Your Dream

Social media is fascinating, plain and simple.  I have built a pretty good Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn following for the little time I spend on the site.  I’m pretty excited about that, because I can imagine what I could accomplish if I spent more time using social media.

Face it, we have to bring home the bacon.  I am a single dude living one Summer day at a time.  I enjoy eating at various restaurants, social drinking and golfing, which means less time gets devoted to my long term goal of working-from-home using social media platforms, helping businesses establish their social media presence.  I have one social media job under my belt.  It’s going to take time to reach my goal, but my advice to anyone in my situation is to not give up.  Work your butt off when you have the time, and give it your 100% effort.

Is It Necessary?

Today, I am going to discuss having a social media account for every platform. Is it really necessary? Well my friends, it depends on what you are trying to sell. If it’s unclear, for sure get on Facebook and Twitter. In my opinion, those are the elite social media platforms you want to create an account right away.

Now if you are selling product that requires a lot of visual detail, Pinterest and YouTube need to be in your social media strategy along with Facebook and Twitter. What’s great about Pinterest is although pictures and videos are a huge factor, you can also post text too. YouTube is very essential for video content, once you develop an effective marketing strategy.

If you are an up and comer corporation, who wants a professional look, get on LinkedIn. Think of LinkedIn as “your professional résumé”. Create your profile, find others in your field and connect with them. Be sociable!

Whether you have an account for every social media platform or not, it won’t hurt you. If you decide to focus on a couple of social media platforms, familiarize yourself with them and really push to promote your product. Once established, then think about getting your product on other social media networks. It’s better to concentrate on a couple things, then to attack several categories. It just gets too overwhelming. I’ve done it. It’s our human extinct.

Take care,

Social Media – So Easy a Caveman Can Do It, Right?

“Geico so easy, a caveman can do it” is in the past.  I used to enjoy those commercials, but Geico cannot use that slogan forever.  Advertising is not that simple.  It needs to fresh and to keep up with the current trends.

Is Social Media Marketing so easy a caveman can do it?  A couple of months ago, I began my quest on becoming a social media manager through a website called paidsocialmediajobs.com.  I went through all the training, as well as setting up profiles on all the major social media networks.  I’m going to be making money instantly, right?

Just like learning any other job, IT TAKES TIME.  Paid Social Media Jobs even tells you that, which is great.  There is a lot to learn about social media, and setting up profiles, as well as being active on them, is just the beginning.  Experience is what will get you to the next level.  Right now, social media is a part time job, and in the future, I hope to turn it into full-time.  I still have bills, food costs, fuel costs, cell phone bill, etc.  My advice, if you are in the same boat as me, is to keep gaining experience.  Socialize with other users on social media.  Post and share at least 10 things a day.  Last tip, set up good, full profiles on job market sites in order to get your name out there.

If you know anyone who is an aspiring social media manager like myself, please share this blog with them, and inform them this business takes time.  It does not happen overnight!

Thanks everybody!  Have a great weekend!
