As an Entrepreneur If You Are Doing the Following, You Are Doing a Great Job On Social Media

Great Job On Social Media

I have been consulting a lot with clients lately about their social media strategies and something over the past few weeks; something stood out to me. Lots of entrepreneurs do not understand some of the fundamentals of using Social Media for business. I never thought that I would find myself trying to convince a “Marketer” to put out content that has practical value for clients. I didn’t think I would have to say to a digital entrepreneur that you need to have a Facebook page to run ads. I didn’t know that I will have to convince someone who spent the last six years in marketing that developing thought leadership will not negatively affect you. I couldn’t understand how being known as an expert in your field will reflect poorly on you.

I have always felt that Caribbean entrepreneurs weren’t making enough use of Social Media, I have written some articles about how they can take full advantage of the many opportunities social media offers for their businesses but always felt like I can do more.

When I was wrapping up my masters a couple of months ago, I had to conduct a research study; I looked at how storytelling and social media intersected In the nonprofit sector.

My Thoughts On The 4 Reason For The Rise of the Side Hustle

As I look back on my working life, whether it was working as the Officer in Charge at Grenada Public Service Credit Union now called Ariza Credit Union or later in financial services in Canada.
