Join Me on Facebook Live: Instagram Engagement
Welcome! Every week I go live on Facebook to share strategies and tutorials for DIY online marketing for local small businesses. As a local business owner (meaning, your customers and clients come from your geographic location), you most likely don’t have a lot of time for online marketing. You’re focused on your business! That’s where I come in.
Every week, you can join me live on Facebook for about 20 minutes to find out how to blog, send emails, use social media channels and even get some tips for your website. Then, I create a blog post from that video with a breakdown of what you need to do to get the job done.
July 25 Topic: Instagram Engagement
Updated July 21: My Facebook Live about this topic was deleted into the abyss by some Facebook glitch so I will be covering this again.
See, I totally get what it’s like to feel overwhelmed. I know what it’s like to see all the options, all the possibilities, listen to all the advice (and there’s a ton!) about what you should be doing, and then FREEZE. I remember feeling that way when I was getting married. So many decisions and so many possibilities that I had serious analysis paralysis. (Yep, it’s a thing.) Then I started paring down my choices, forcing myself to pick a color, a theme, and trusting my vendors to know what they were doing. I was so relieved when I didn’t have to pay attention to every. Single. Option.
I know that’s how you feel when you think about posting on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. I know you feel overwhelmed at the very thought of starting and keeping up a blog. I know the idea of sending weekly emails to your customers and fans sends you straight into deer-in-headlights mode.
Here’s the thing: You don’t have to do it ALL. A lot of marketers will dazzle you with all the stuff they think you should be doing. Me? I know you want to do the MINIMUM and then get back to work. And I’m all about working smart, not hard.
We cover exactly what you need to do and no more. If you want to get fancier, we can go that route down the line. But for now, I want you to do what you have to do to get online, build your brand and attract customers to your local small business. My whole desire is to take the overwhelm out of all of that stuff so that you can grow and grow your business. Anyone can do it, and together, we’re going to learn how.
What do you think? I’d love it if you joined me every Thursday at noon (Eastern) on my Facebook page.
