ultimate guide to social media mindfulness
Storytime: I started from zero. I had nothing, not even an idea to start a business.
Me and my best friend used to say “ we can’t come up with any ideas, why?!” I guess by ideas we meant: cool apps, drop shipping, stuff that seemed to get money quick.
One day I realized that my best resource was my creativity, and I decided that I needed to monetize that.
I had come from a service/hospitality background, so dealing with people is what I have experience in and what I’ve always been good at.
Because of the boom on social media (and the even bigger boom because of the pandemic) I knew that that’s where it was at.
Here’s a few tips on how to start your remote business.
[And yes, the photo below was my very first home-made photoshoot as a business owner!]
Look back at your skills. The work you did before, and think how you can translate that into the online space.
For example: if you were an executive assistant, you’re probably very good at organizing, planning, anticipating needs. You could be a VA.
And if you feel like you need a little help with the tech stuff, there are tons of courses you can do online that can help. Do them, don’t be afraid. You can always learn.
Research the business you want to launch.
Learn how people run their businesses, what their mistakes were and what their recommendations are. Blogs, vlogs, short courses, even from social media itself.
Get a mentor. Someone who’s already started their business from nothing and ask them to guide you: what courses did they take? Where did they find clients?
Talk about your business any chance you get! Mention it to friends, family, to other accounts.
My very first clients were my best friends who had recently opened a hardware store. They knew I was taking my first steps into social media management and gave me the chance to work with them. It was scary because you don’t want to disappoint the people you life, but it was also so much fun!
Also, talk about your biz on social media non-stop. You never know who might need you!
Your friends and family, or their friends or people they know can be potential customers.
You’re new at being a business owner and that’s alright, your work won’t be perfect. But it will be better than what another person can do (because they won’t have any idea of how to do it, that’s why they’ll hire you).
The more you do, the more confident you’ll be.
Keep going, don’t backtrack.
