Start a conversation instead!
Have you ever hopped on a social media site like LinkedIn or Facebook only find everyone just asking you to check out their stuff. At worse it’s full of artist trying to sell their art to other artists, at best just fishing for compliments.
Where are the real conversations? What happens when we slow down stop pitching our stuff and start making connections?
Now, admittedly we are not social media experts by any means. We have however invested and committed ourselves to learning from those who do it better.
We share what we’ve learned and also our own struggles with the constant need to feed the social media beast with content that resonates and encourages interaction with you followers and core audience.
The goal of social media is not to sell, or market, but to build the KNOW, LIKE and TRUST factor we often discuss.
Bob and I explore some of the ways people are using social sites to make more meaningful connections.
