What I’ve Learned from Facebook & Instagram – Part 3

After a few weeks under my belt running Digital Authority’s Facebook page and Instagram account, it’s time to take a step back and sum up some of the big takeaways.

So, here are the top 3 things I’ve learned from Facebook and Instagram in just a few weeks:

  • 1. You can’t just read about this stuff – You have to try your hand at it and be able to execute it, especially if you want teach others how to do it. It’s all about doing what you say and being the living embodiment of your teachings (so you’re not a hypocrite). That’s so important to both building trust and proving a concept.

  • 2. Experimenting and systemization are key – You’ll never know what works best if you don’t try different approaches. And once you do find something that works great, get the process dialed in so it can be passed off to someone else. My only warning here is to be careful about passing something off too soon (like before you really understand it and have tested it).

  • 3. Snapchat takes a lot more effort, to create and to consume – It’s easy to scroll through some images on Instagram or your news feed from Facebook or Twitter. To watch and listen to a 10 second or less snapchat video, because you know it’s going to disappear claims more of your attention. In our short attention span world, video simply holds your focus more than images or text, however, it also takes more to create.

I love learning new things – It’s been fun diving in these first few weeks, really getting in the weeds to work out our own best practices for DA’s Facebook page and Instagram account. I want to offer social media marketing as a service at some point in the future, which is why I’m doing this in the first place. Although I’m not at that point yet, I enjoy sharing my experiences (and experiments) with you so you can learn and improve your business.

Get Started and Be Consistent with Awesome Content
Whichever Social Network you prefer is where you should start. If you enjoy it or ‘get it’ you’ll be able to integrate your message more naturally and your prospects and buyers will see that. It’s never too late to start because the cream always rises to the top. Focus on creating epic content and share it with the world in your way, set yourself apart and be the Authority.

So if you have any questions about my experiences on social media – or your own, send them my way, and we’ll tackle them together. Two heads are always better than one.
