Do You Remember Why You Started on Social Media?


Remember when you started on social media?

Remember why you started on social media?

Ah, you don’t remember do you?

(Actually, the answer to the first question is not nearly as important as the answer to the second.)

OK, relax, take a deep breath!

(I have too few followers here to be able to afford the luxury of losing any!)

This isn’t a history quiz.

Let’s review the two possible answers to my second question.

(If you have somehow conjured a third possible answer to my second question then please call me. We need to speak.)

The first possible answer is you do remember why you started with social media.

In which case, I’m going to ask how that’s been working out for you.

Yeah, I thought so.

(If things are going well you may still want to hang around because you may find this article useful.)

The second possible answer is that you don’t remember why you started with social media, assuming you had a reason in the first place, and you’ve either stopped working with it or are mindlessly repeating what you started and have no idea how you’re doing.

Let’s discuss these answers.

In the case where you do remember why you started with social media, what do your results looks like?

Good, bad, indifferent?

What are you doing about it?

Do you regularly compare your results to your baseline and check your progress?

Trick question, is your target audience still the same?

Don’t worry, nobody knows your answers but you.

Now, I have some good news!

For those of you who remember why you started on social media but have lost your way, don’t worry!

Don’t blame yourself!

Just start afresh!

Follow a methodology like my 8 step approach to develop a social media program and you’ll be back in control of your destiny.

It’s that simple.

Trust me it works!

For those of you who are totally clueless as to why you ever started with social media, no sense crying over spilled milk!

I offer the same advice as in the prior scenario.

First, don’t worry!

(It never helps!)

Start anew with a methodology like my 8 step approach and you’ll be feeling like a new person.

Again, it’s that simple!

What’s the moral of this story?

It’s never too late to start over again.

Be honest with yourself about what happened, or more to the point, didn’t happen the first time round, and look for your lessons learned.

That’s all!

Why not give it a try and let me know how you do!

I’m always looking for guest bloggers to share their stories!

That’s it for now!

Also, never forget to reach out to either ask questions or to ask for help from someone like myself!
