If you’ve been putting all your eggs in the social media basket, this episode is for you. Social media is like that shiny object we all want to focus our attention on because it seems like the best and quickest way to grow a business. The fact is that it isn’t meant to do anything more than be the initial step that draws your audience in, builds credibility & begins the process of knowing, liking & trusting you so you can start funneling them into your offer. It’s a great foundation to build off of but let me show you how to streamline it so you can focus on the more important things!

  • 80/20 Rule

Focusing on what’s working. 20% of the content you're creating is bringing in 80% of your engagement. 

Figure out what that 20% is and create more content around this to connect with your audience. 

  • Build a story bank- Use Voxer to save stories

Send yourself in the moment all the stories that come up over the week that cause any sort of emotion so when you need a story you have that bank of stories always available.

  • Create a post bank- Use ClickUp

Create a bank of your top posts and how they performed so months down the line when you need to repurpose content and want to put it out there you can use these again or something similar. 

By watching how they perform you can replace the posts as you grow and see engagement get higher.
