My Mission To Help 99.3% Of Business Owners.
In the interest of keeping this short, let’s cut to the chase. I want to help as many individuals and small businesses as I can with websites and social media.
Over the last few years, the digital landscape has been changing so quickly that many have been left behind. The many are small business owners falling into a certain age bracket (i.e. not a ‘millennial’).
I’m talking about owners of brick and mortar shops, salons, builders, decorators, garage owners, dentists and cobblers. Before you say, ‘I know a cobbler with 100k followers on Instragram’, we’ll work off an average.
Things are changing so quickly that even people with their finger on the pulse struggle to keep up.
It’s intimidating to know where to start and have the confidence to know you are doing it right.
So, I have made it my personal mission to help as many small businesses and entrepreneurs bring their business online and feel comfortable enough using the relevant social platforms. To the millennials reading this we know things our parents would love to know. Let’s teach them.
Starting My Own Small Business
As a member of the newly self-employed, the main question is how to bring as much value to as many people as possible.
The easiest way to do this in today’s world is to document.
I will be documenting the entire journey of starting from zero to who knows where. The equipment I have to do this isn’t fancy, it’s an iPhone, a webcam, a desktop computer, a tripod, some box lights and what’s in my head.
Back to documenting. I will be documenting on here by good old fashion text form, video and audio.
All of which will be documented on here (the website) but more regular content will be posted through social channels, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Anchor (audio), Podcast and YouTube.
Oh btw…putting your first YouTube video out is as scary as it seems. Here is the first video, I promise they will get better!
What Value Can I Bring Small Businesses?
Here are the facts, websites aren’t expensive. They can be done quickly for a reasonable amount of money, anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to pull the wool over your eyes.
That is the first small business essential, a good functional website.
Secondly, if you are currently playing the ignorant card to social media, you will metaphorically die a slow death. Other small businesses who do you use social media well, will take you customers and put you out of business. That’s the bad news.
The good news is you’ve now realised you have to do something and you are in the right place. I can help.
Here you have a couple of options. I can teach you or your employee how to use social effectively or I can manage it for you. Either way, you need to have active social media accounts.
If you are in a position to have it managed for you then great. You’ll see an improvement from day 1.
On the other hand, learning isn’t hard. All it takes is knowing the difference between a Twitter hashtag an Instagram hashtag and all the rest in between. Once you have the foundations laid and you feel comfortable in what platforms you’ll be off to the races.
I said this post would be a short one so we are going to stop it here but if you fall into the context of the post please do get in touch.
