LWL_125_ How To Use Social Media To Engage Your Audience

Social Media can be a tricky thing, if you don't fully understand its purpose. It's purpose is to facilitate interaction among its members.

It's kind of like an online community where people can connect with family, friends and networks.

The thing is, it's also a great way for them to connect with YOU and your business. So to help you along, I cover the following:

  • What social media is
  • What social media ISN'T (more important)
  • How to choose what platform to use
  • The 80/20 rules for content and promotion
  • Using Social Media Tools
  • Much, much more

This is a general social media episode, but in future episodes, I will be diving into specific social media sites to give even more detail so stay tuned.

Also, here's the video I talk about in the episode about the girl who learns to dance in a year.
