That’s what creating a social media footprint feels like sometimes. I woke up one day and said I know what I love to do and I want to sell it on The Internet…how hard can that be? Naive thought #1
Trust me when I say it’s harder than it seems…it is a constant effort to make sure you are posting relevant content and pictures that will capture peoples attention if only for a moment as they scroll rather quickly through their social media streams. Hashtags have been created to find new followers, but although they may “like” a picture you post, that doesn’t necessarily make them a follower. The real challenge is to get them to follow you, and more importantly get them to “follow through” and go to you website to become a potential client. It may seem like this is a natural flow, but trust me it is not!
I have also started to follow many social media experts like @lisamckenzie @socialmedia2day @kimgarst @jerryCytryn in the hopes or grasping information that will shed light on this whole new experience…I try and learn from their experience and their wisdom..but the highway I travel seems to always have detours, roadwork, traffic and is always congested with many obstacles along the way.
My passion is to create, and whether I am creating for an individual to tell their story, or having fun creating journals for corporate individual or just good o’l fashioned entrepreneurs….I know there is a place for me in the world wide web! There seems to be spot for so many other, why not me?
And so I continue this journey, I will continue to throw myself into the media storm, and with all the courage I can muster, I will keep moving forward! One step at time!
Have an awesome weekend!
