4 Things (and 1 Bonus!) I Wish I Knew When I Started My Social Media Agency

Hey friends! Thank you so much for being here for this week’s Small Minded Episode.

We’re digging in and I’m ready to deliver a little more on the business side. This episode is short and sweet but I hope you find it value-packed.

Key Takeaways

  • Usually when someone approaches me to share they’re thinking about starting a small business, they are thinking about a logo or website. Those things are important, but it all comes down to four main things.

People will pay you for what you are good at.

  • I used to moonlight as a wedding singer but never charged much. I was good at it, it didn’t take much time. But I learned to charge for the value I offered!
  • Think about what you have paid others to do. Someone is willing to pay you!
  • People don’t have the skills or bandwidth to do things you perceive to be easy. It’s the little things they outsource first.

Your skills and talents are unique.

  • Not everyone knows how to do the things you find so, so simple!

You don’t have to be fancy to be good.

  • I should have charged more earlier, but I didn’t realize how unique I was. I just posted what I wanted to know and learn. Now I know it’s called content marketing. But it got great results for my clients!
  • If you have a small, service-based business, you should promote your own business AT LEAST as much as the businesses you serve.

Your mindset and energy matters.

  • Think beyond “a little side gig” and give your business the respect it deserves!
  • Any time I have felt a nagging that my business needed to change, the thing to change was me. I recently had to flip the script to think of myself as the leader of a team instead of someone on the team doing the work.
