#068 - Why you need a social media makeover: Simple tweaks to get you and your brand better results online

May 16, 2016, 11:43 AM

I think if we’re honest, most of us are guilty of it…making mistakes on social media.

Maybe you wish you:

  • Could take something back.
  • Hadn’t posted when you were mad.
  • Didn’t come off with so much self-promotion.

Or you might be the opposite. Maybe you haven’t made mistakes. Rather, you wish you could just get more people to:

  • Like your posts.
  • Be more engaged.
  • Buy your stuff.

Ever see someone’s posts and cringe? Ever think…what were they thinking? Ever wish you could give someone a social media makeover?

I know, I know. It’s always those other people, not us. They need the makeover, but we’ve got our stuff together.

Right? Maybe not.

I think we could all use a few more points added to our SMQ = Social Media Intelligence.

Trust me when I say, I was the “poster boy” for all the wrong moves on social media when I first started. But today I’m glad I made them. Funny thing is over the years some corporations have even hired me to help them NOT make my mistakes.

I coach my clients to do the same:

Leverage your past pain into future influence, impact, and income.

In episode 68 I teach you how to give yourself a Social Media Makeover by focusing on 8 components. I list them below and unpack them on the episode. Get ready for a fun and enlightening experience.

Give yourself a social media makeover by focusing on:

M = Mission Is your mission clear? Clarity attracts; confusion repels….especially on social media.

A = Awareness Ignorance isn’t bliss; it costs you big time in the end.

K = Keenness Forget “street smarts.” Focus on “social media smarts.” It can be caught and taught.

E = Engagement I’ll say it again. Marketing is storytelling. Draw them in a brilliant story.

O = Others Selling is serving others, not yourself. Social media doesn’t ruin you; it reveals you.

V = Value Any money ethically earned is a direct result of value creation. No value. No money.

E = Emotion They remember how you made them feel, not what you said.

R = R.O.I. Don’t believe the lies. Social media done well should pay dividends, a return on investment.


QUESTION: Am I missing any? If you had to add one more, what would it be?
