Facebook Social Media Marketing

Like It Or Not, You Are What You Post Online

"Don't judge me by the things I post online; I can post whatever I want; it is not a reflection of who I am in real life." That's me paraphrasing something that someone posted on Facebook. Here' a reality check for you. People will judge you based on what you post. I don't care if you think its right or wrong; I don't care if the things you post are not an accurate reflection of who you are. I can guarantee you that people will look at what you post as a true reflection of you.

So, what do you do, well you be careful with the things you post off course. I mean, I don't think I should have to say this. But sometimes we post the craziest things and wonder why people react to us in a particular way.

About a year ago, I was having this discussion with someone online about the things they post. I said to them that employers and prospective employers are looking at the things they post and can make a decision on whether to hire or fire them from that. That person said I was a crazy man even to entertain this idea. But the trust it, it's not me entertaining the idea, this is happening. I don't understand why people get hooked on the way they want things to be without reacting to how things are.

If you think that people shouldn't judge you based on the things you post, that's ok. But understand this, they will do it, it is happening, and there is nothing you can do about it. So why not audit the things you post, you don't have to listen to me or agree with me. Frankly, I don't care, but know that maybe the reason you are not receiving any response from that job application you sent out is that post you made yesterday.

Grenada Masterclass Social Media Marketing

How I Used Facebook To Promote and Sell Out My Masterclass

It has been one week since I hosted my Social Media Masterclass in Grenada. The feedback so far has been really great, and I am quite happy with how everything played out. There were some hiccups, areas for improvement, things that could have been done better. But overall it was a fantastic experience, one that will be repeated in roughly two months.

Initially, I wanted only 30 people in the class but based on the demand, I created space for 5 more people. I also did a second private session because I couldn’t fit any more people in the original class. So, how was I able to sell out my Social Media Masterclass? Well, I used Social Media. It would be weird if I was teaching a class on Social Media and can’t use the same social media to my advantage.

Here’s What Every Caribbean Parent and Teacher Need To Know About Students Social Media Use

I always write about how businesses can take advantage of opportunities on Social Media. However, there is a side of social media that is having an adverse impact on young people, and they do not even understand what is happening.

Since then, many people reached out to me to share their own experience and thoughts on that subject. However one in particular really got me thinking.

You Will Never Believe These Bizarre Truths About The Digital Media Industry In Grenada

I believe we can all agree that Grenada has gone digital, every Grenadian with a smartphone has one of many Social Media apps on it. The problem with that is it makes our attention very fragmented, we are no longer just watching GBN or just listening to Boss FM. We are now consuming content daily on one of the many social media apps on our phone.

As a matter of fact, when we watch something on GBN or MTV or hear something on Boss FM or POWER, we take the conversation about that thing to Facebook. What does that mean for the business community in Grenada? It implies that Entrepreneurs and business owners need to understand the Grenadian digital media landscape and learn how to tell stories on social media to create an emotional connection with their customers/potential customers.
