How did we get started?

I have always been very internet savvy and extremely curious. If I think about something then I look it up. I made my first website and of course that came with a lot of research on its own. I wanted to make sure I did everything right. While in the process of this research and build mission I started to learn about social media.

I subscribe to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc all one by one. I put all of my focus on each platform to ensure I knew as much as possible about each one. I know your probably thinking that if I focused on each platform one at a time does that mean that the pages were left inactive. Yes, I did leave them inactive. I was in a learning phase.

I didn’t even realize at the time how important social media was. I just wanted to get my website running and get the cash coming in. Before you ask no that didn’t exactly work like that. How was people supposed to know about my website if I didn’t market of social media? Duh, right? LOL Hey don’t you laugh at me.

So I gathered what I knew about each platform and put it all to use. I opened a browser for each platform and went to work. After realizing how important social media was I never closed those browser. Yes, I literally kept open each browser for each platform. I had to make sure that I didn’t miss a beat.

I wanted up to answer questions asap, reply to comments, and most of all make sure that I remembered to post up to date content as often as possible. When those numbers from likes, comments, followers, etc started coming in I was more than ecstatic.

So much so that I had forgot that my main reason for getting started was to get my website known so that I could make sales.

Why We Do This

That First Step

Like all others before us we know what it is like to make that initial presence into the world of social media. Where do I start? How do I get people to follow me? Those are the first thing that comes to mind when you open you pages.

Let’s make you presence in the social world!

Social Media Platforms

There are so many platforms to choose from. How do you decide which to open first? Well you might think that maybe I should try Facebook or twitter. Which one will get me the most attention? This is simple. All of them. Yes, you heard (well read) me right. You want to get as much attention as possible. Why not right? This is especially if you offer a product or service. Don’t you want as many people to know about you as possible? If you said no, then maybe you should stick to one or two platforms. If you said yes then you should get on as many platforms as possible.

Not everyone uses the same platform. You may have someone that uses only Facebook or maybe only Twitter. Or maybe you have someone that uses all platforms available. Well even when you have someone that uses all platforms, guess what? They can’t see all of them at the same time. Not only that but every platform is different. Your post might get lost in the midst of everyone else post on the page. This is why it is best to get on as many platforms as possible so the chances of being seen and heard is greater.
