Having dedicated accounts across the internet for your small business is valuable and expected by your audience. BUT you may feel unsure about this whole thing. Let me explain how to make social work for YOU and your small business inside!
Podcasts. I love these audio files for the advice I can get for my business without having to sit through a course or read dense articles. In the time it takes me to get two miles logged in the morning, I can learn about new marketing methods or the next best rural business idea. Podcasts have truly been a way for me to learn about owning a business and get ideas for growing my own. What podcasts do I listen to? Check out this list of my favorites!
As a small business owner, the balance between business and family is a constant struggle, and at times we need to dedicate extra hours to growing our companies. But there are also times, where business needs to take a backseat, or even a break, in order for us to attend to our family. At MKM, I want everyone to see that my small business operates in large part alongside my family (husband Ryan and four kiddos: Aiden, Charlotte, Corinne, and Henry), so throughout the next few weeks, I'll share with you the story of Fall 2018, when MKM came to a halt for over 8 weeks. Limited work time, limited income, but through it all, I gained a new appreciation for my clients, my children, my family, and my LIFE beyond the world of digital marketing and work.
We've reached the point of summer where the kiddos are bored, the mamas and daddies are excitedly back-to-school shopping, and business owners are caught between vacations and needing to push production. With all this going on, where is there time to actively market your small business' products and services online? Stop by for MKM's 5 tips for saving time while staying consistent with your small business' social media marketing.
As business owners, we've been coached and nurtured to sell, sell, sell our product, but constant self-promotion is NOT what audiences on social media respond to. They know the marketing schemes and click-bait posts, and they are savvy enough to know when something is a pitch versus a genuine story being told. So here at Molly Knuth Media, I'm going to tell you that for the next week, I want you to refocus your online marketing efforts, and focus instead on interacting socially with your followers. Oh look! And I even included a handy checklist to make it easy for you!
