Hearing Crickets On Social?

Feeling like you’re bearing your heart and soul in each and every post but not getting any response in return is the absolute WORST part about starting out on social media!

Unfortunately I don’t have any magical solutions for you. *Womp Womp*

BUT, I can tell you with great confidence: Hang in there. It gets better.

If you keep showing up and doing the work, people will start to notice. And, in the process, you’ll get better at it. You’ll learn what works and what to avoid.

Don’t misunderstand me though and think it’s just a matter of posting and sitting around waiting for people to come to you. 

GO TO THEM!

Search the social-sphere for the little communities where your people hang out. This could include things like: member organizations, Facebook groups, hashtags, or influencer accounts.

Find your people and help them out. Leave encouraging comments. Give back with tutorials or provide your expert advice.

Don’t be weird, though. No one wants comments on their posts like “You will like our account. Go to it and follow us!” Ugh.

Nope. Just be a real person and reach out like you would in the real world when you like someone and want them to be your friend. 

They’ll start to say: “This person is awesome! I’m gonna go check them out.” Then they’ll see all the awesome stuff that you’re posting and gladly join your community.

It kinda all comes back to the stuff you learned on the playground: Be nice and they’ll want to play with you.
