Episode 472 – The Anatomy of the Perfect Social Media Post

Would you take a flight knowing that it was ONLY running on autopilot? Why would you try to do that with your social media posts? Ever platform has a different audience, but more importantly, a different ecosystem for posts. They vary in picture size, text amounts, hashtags or no hashtags, and more!

I use Canva.com (both the free and paid for versions) to create stunning (scroll stopping) graphics. The paid for version lets you resize and reuse your designs.
Graphics are the key to getting attention, but often the meat (BACON) of the message is in the text. Limits range from 280-2000 characters (not words). How you format and use that limited messaging resource is paramount to the effectiveness of your messaging!

In this episode, I will discuss how to maximize Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest (and touch on Instagram). I wall also give you three DO & DON’T tips to help you get the most out of your social media posts!

If you want people to fly your content airline… Let them know that you are piloting the plane!

Episode 422 – How Can Emotional Intelligence Make LinkedIn More Powerful?

LinkedIn is the business to business social network. But many people spend very little time on the platform. Why? It’s often one of two reasons… Either they don’t know how to effectively use it, or they fear the dreaded “Connect & Pitch” that some many people employ looking for business. Relationships take time. Relationships take work. So why are people teaching the “Easy Button” approach to using Linkedin?

Episode 419 – Creating Better Business Relationships Using Nimble with Shannon Eckroth

Back in the day when MySpace was all the rage, my friends obsessed over profile pictures and sharing memes while I geeked out for hours learning how to code new backgrounds and analyzing what actions got the most reaction from people. 

Fast forward a few years later and I’m sitting at the startup, LinkedIn in Sunnyvale, CA helping them recruit their first accounting department. All the while getting the best digital education a girl could ask for.

And since then? 

I’ve taught over 200 workshops and tried just about every digital strategy out there to sell socially and experimented with every marketing software, app and playbook I could find. If you need to do it, I’ve probably done it, failed at it and figured out 3 to 4 other ways to accomplish it. 

I’m always here to help and most business owners have a question or two they just can’t seem to figure out. I’m that needle in a haystack that probably has an answer and if I don’t, I welcome the challenge to add another skill to my toolbox once I figure it out!

Episode 342 – What Does Beer and Social Media Have In Common?

What does Beer and Social Media have in common? You only rent them (and can be dangerous when combined)! There’s a story all over the internet about a fairly successful company called LittleThings. It WAS a feel-good story page for women built around Facebook. Changes to the Facebook algorithms literally killed the traffic to their page…

Episode 322 – How Would You Like To Improve Your Business In The New Year?

We are at the end of another year and at the beginning of the New Year. Some things change, and some things stay the same. One thing that never changes is that we are all given the same 168 hours per week. Most of us spend 1/3rd sleeping, 1/3rd working, and we have 1/3rd left over…
