3 rules of 3

So many people I come across are reluctant to use social media because they "don't know what to say".

Here are 3 rules of 3 to get you started.

This first one is featured in more detail in a blog by Daniel Cadden that I contributed to:

Social media small talk

1.  Seasonal
2.  Regional
3.  Topical

Have a read of the original blog to get some ideas of how to put this into action.

Non-sales business ideas

1.  My diary today

  • Within reason of course! If you can name-check someone in your post so much the better.

2.  Tasks in progress

  • What are you actually working on right now?

3.  Projects completed

  • With a link to any website information there might be about it too

More than just a business

1.  Social good

  • Charity fundraising
  • Community projects, 

2.  Helping hand

  • Answering questions
  • Sharing good quality information from other people, 

3.  Personal

  • Choose a couple of things that you are happy for your business clients to know about you. (Mine are that I like coffee, cats and chocolate) Whether you like gardening, running marathons, dog walking etc the occasional mention will humanise your business. 
  • Being social on social media is vital!
