Social media can be a powerful tool for your business - it can make you visible to people who may not have discovered you otherwise, it can support brand awareness, and it can strengthen the connection you have with your community. BUT, if social media is the priority in your business, and as a result, you’re not experiencing tangible results when it comes to your services and revenue, that’s when it can be detrimental to your growth. This episode addresses how to use social media effectively, set boundaries around it, and steps to leave it altogether if that’s something you’ve been considering. The discussion and exercises in this episode are designed to help you take stock of the current efficacy of social media in your business, ensure that you’re building and growing your business sustainably, and most of all - that you're enjoying the sh*t out of what you’re doing!
