Social Media Basics: How to Get Ahead with Facebook

Gone are the days where you could post something on Facebook and get excellent organic reach.

This started happening years before people were even aware that their posts weren’t reaching all their followers. Should your small business be posting on this social media platform or not? Is Facebook for your brand? The answer is… maybe. Know Your Audience There is plenty of chatter about whether ... Read More

Stop, Collaborate and Listen – Getting Your Peeps on Board

Did you know that we, as humans, HAVE to connect with other humans to survive? Its true. Its like a scientific fact. Otherwise, youd go insane.

Prep and Execution of Events

Lets get to the down and dirty truth. Anyone who runs a marathon can tell you that the training before the race is not the most memorable aspect of participating. Pulling off the goal at the end of all that training is the reward for all that hard work. This is also true for any business owner looking to host an event, training or workshop. While planning might not be your favorite part, the prep work needed to successfully execute your event is the most important piece of the whole thing. The Checklist With so many... Read More

The Strategy in Motion

Analytics is kind of like getting on the scale after cheat day. No one REALLY wants to know how much that two-and-a-half-pound burrito set them back. Still, having the numbers can be useful. Just like getting on the scale is important when youre trying to lose weight, keeping up with analytics is important when youre trying to gain an audience. Theyre so important, in fact, that you should check them once every 30 days. Why? Because social media is ever-changing. Algorithms change, rules and regulations change, and even your... Read More

What's the Plan?

Weve talked a lot recently about the importance of creating an editorial calendar and using automation tools. And now that back-to-school is here, I HIGHLY recommend implementing both. Trust me, your sanity will thank you. Lets face it: Between packing lunches, helping with homework, shuttling back and forth to sports, AND running a business, youre going to be very short on time. The only way youll be able to get any marketing done at all, frankly, is through the use of the tools weve discussed. Breaking it down into edible... Read More
