As we each reflect upon our lives, whether it be relationships, business, finances, exercise routines, eating habits and so on, we seem to always ask ourselves one question:
What could I have done better?
It’s common to want to improve areas where we noticed weak spots to strengthen our overall game, but what if we flipped this around and asked ourselves:
What did I do right?
So many people are still trying to figure out this ‘social media thing’. It’s new, it’s overwhelming, and the rate at which things change is scary. Examples of what not to do are abundant, but how do you know what you can do right?
- Take a look at your existing business and identify your strengths, talents, and areas that are going well.
- Spend some time analyzing these areas and why they are your strengths, talents, and areas that are going well.
- Take what you’ve observed and apply them when you begin to engage in social media.
- Tweak and adapt as necessary to meet your objectives.
Chances are if you’ve had success offline, you’ll have success online. There are always the basic dos and donts, but they’re nothing more than acting in a publicly socially acceptable manner. The rest is up to you. So take a moment to look at all the things you do right and then rinse and repeat with social media.
