6 Tips to choose wisely your platform

When you start a business online you have the choice of many Social Media platform. I am going to give you some tips to choose wisely the right one.

Facebook remains the largest Social Network in most major markets. Social media has been proven to increase sales for small businesses and corporations. Social platforms allow your current customers and potential customers to learn more about you. You need to brand yourself and not the company you are representing and for that you have to post in Social Media.

Questions you have to ask yourself:

  • Where is my audience?
  • What type of content I want to share?
  • How often do I want to post online?
  • Do I want to be part of a community
  • Do I need to do video?
  • Do I want to interact with my customers?

Facts:  – 20% of Facebook users bought something because of the advertisement they see on the side

– 67% of Twitter users buy brands they follow

– Business experience 61% of success rate using LinkedIn

Facebook: The beauty of Facebook is that you can have your own profile page for your friends and family, your business page where you are going to promote your business and you can create a group for your community. You can have as many pages as you want. If you put too many business links on your profile, you will get your account closed! So my advise, get your fan/business page and use it to promote. You can post 2-3 maximum a day and don’t use many hashtags ( 1 or 2 maximum). As for the group, you can choose 3 privacy settings: Public, Closed and Secret. It is a great way to share your business, articles or trainings to your community.

Twitter: You can post every 30 min as your audience don’t stay very long on twitter. Promote your product/service but you have to share other things: 35-40% should be value content ( webinar, marketing, interviews, testimonials, what you are passionate about) , 20% lifestyle, 10-15% branded quotes, 30% value funnel. For the hashtags 3 maximum.

Instagram: You can post once or twice daily, tell your story with image. Always check the copyright of the image. You can use hashtags from your industry, for that you can check some apps like TagsForLikes or Hashme.

LinkedIn: this platform is mainly to generate B2B connection. Join industry groups and use it to stay informed on current discussion trends.

Snapchat: It is a fun way to engage with your audience. You share photos and videos that self destroy. Meaning, all posts you shared will be auto deleted and gone forever depending on the time limit you set to be available to recipients. 71% of Snapchat users are under 34 years old.

Youtube: It is great if your audience need to see videos, tutorials, interviews. You can also upload your Facebook Live in no time on your Youtube channel

Did you know that 91% of retail brands use 2 or more social media channels? While it’s highly unlikely that simply using one channel to showcase your brand will be enough, having the perfect balance can be tricky. Too many, and you’ll spread yourself too thinly and dilute the impact of your efforts as a result. Too few, and your brand visibility and reach might suffer.

In Summary, it’s not the size of the platform. It’s not about being all over every platform. It’s what’s right for your business based on who you’re trying to reach. So do your research and find the right tool that will help you build your business.Whichever social networks you choose to use, find the right resources to grow your business.


What it takes to be an entrepreneur?

You have some ideas? You talk about it for days? And then what? You might share your ideas with your family and friends ! You might get some people telling you that it is a great idea and some that might think you can’t do it! So which one are you going to listen? Not everybody has entrepreneurship in them and most people will just let go of their ideas, their dreams because they are listening too much of what others say!

However if you are a real entrepreneur you will listen to the positive person. You will believe in yourself. It’s not easy to leave aside the naysayers, the doubters because we were taught for a long time how to behave, and what we should do in the society. If you want to be a successful entrepreneur,   you need to do your own thing, try to be different and stand out. Without that mentality you will always be confronted to the negative people and they’ll eventually win.

It is not easy to start a new business, but execution is everything for startups. You need to care and be passionate of what you are doing, I always talk about it because it is the fuel that will help you when you start doubting about yourself. You need to understand that your idea and your goal, project has to be more than money. You need to start working on your self-development to keep this passion. Self development is so important because you will change your mindset and learn more about your capabilities

Entrepreneurs also learn about their business constantly and go with what works. They explore around their industry and adjust. Warren Buffett spend 80% of his day reading about what matters in his industry, he is aware of what’s going on and learn something new all the time.

You have to plan, and go slowly because it is full of set backs and stress when you start with this great idea, but if you have the desire and the initiative that it is something that suits you and it is going to work then you can be an entrepreneur.

A good entrepreneur will get over failure and learn by it, not giving up or listening to this little voice saying it’s not for you. He will look for the lesson of each challenging situations.

“Work harder on yourself than you do on your job” Jim Rohn

Handling risk also is a traits of entrepreneurship. If you like being in your comfort zone, work little and having your weekend away , then you can’t be an entrepreneur because it takes dedication, consistency and perseverance.

You need to be confident also on your product/service and also on yourself, know your strengths and weaknesses and don’t be afraid to delegate what you don’t know. It will be a waste of your valuable time to try to do everything.

Habits creates your results, get into a routine and stick to it. Evaluates  If you are easy led to do something else that has nothing to do with your business then maybe rethink your choice of being an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs need to get organized, so check your personal attributes and evaluates what you like and dislike.

And the last traits, be honest with yourself. Don’t start with a business if you don’t have a clue how to start, what to do or even not ready to make sacrifices, Dreams can cost a lot of money!! Set goals and self evaluate yourself!

The leaders and the free thinkers are the ones that excel in business while the followers and copycats fail !
