I really like to pay attention to what makes people super frustrated about social media. Like eye twitching flustered. The list is quite long, but there is one thing that always stands out. It's called procrastination. It's a bitch and it makes us act bitchy. If our brand is a direct reflection of us, then we definitely want to avoid letting out that procrastination bitch!
Whew! Glad I got that out of the way. When you procrastinate, suddenly your social media posts become a chore. Then it automatically gets put on the back burner. It no longer becomes about being social! I know that all of us need a break sometimes and that is absolutely okay. However, if you are putting it off and putting it off and putting it off....Eventually you will end up with nothing to show.
If you are using social media to promote your brand or your business you have to show up. There is no way that someone is going to happen across your feed if your posts are days or even weeks (eeekkk) old. I only have one tip to help keep you off the procrastination path.
Ready? GO! Stay INSPIRED!!!! Being inspired is the fuel to every business. You have to be excited and want to succeed. The second you forget this is the moment you lose all of your momentum. There goes your hope for a bright future. I know that when I am having a hard time writing or thinking of new ideas, I simply do the things I love. I find time for me and I focus on what really makes me excited in life.
Everyone is inspired in different ways. It could be taking an afternoon off and going for a hike. Drinking an entire bottle (maybe 2+!) of wine with a close friend or family member. Reading. Writing. Screaming. Hiding in your closet. Whatever it is for you, do it!!! Just don't let your focus or your dream die. Fight for that inspiration in everything you do. I've had a dead dream before and it is not pretty!
When you are so excited about life and your business, making time to share it on social media is no longer a burpee. I hate burpees. In fact I just googled burpees for the correct spelling and the second thing that came up was burpees suck. Don't let social media be a damn burpee. Kick its butt instead.
Let your inspiration show in your social media. Shout it from the roof tops. "THIS IS MY BUSINESS AND IT ROCKS"! I don't know about you, but if I'm this excited and inspired about my business, there's no way I'm putting off my social media feeds. I want to share and inspire others to feel the way I do.
Now go out and show the world what inspires you!!!!!
