How am I going to do that, you may be wondering?  It seems like a big promise, but I honestly believe that with a plan, all things are possible.  That is if you execute that plan.  The trouble is, and I know all too well that having a plan and executing your plan are two very different things, and often that is because of a lack of time.  I am going to give you some of that time back with a plan you can follow starting right now.

If Content is king, then Consistency is his queen!  

You need to post valuable content, and you must do it consistently.  Let’s define valuable because I do not mean that it has to cost a lot; shoot, it doesn’t even have to take a lot of time, but it should be something your audience will spend time on.  I would define valuable content as something that educates, inspires, or entertains your audience.  Something they will stop scrolling and engage with.  Meaning they will comment on it, like it or better still, share it. To do this, you really need to know who your dream client is.  Let’s say you are posting memes about how difficult it is to work in the restaurant industry on your business page.  This could work, or it could seriously hurt you.  

If your page is about restaurant consulting and your dream clients are entrepreneurs in the restaurant industry, that could be highly effective.  Humor is a great way to get people to engage.

However, if you own a restaurant and you want to attract clients to come to enjoy your atmosphere and amazing food, chances are posting about difficult clients or kitchen blunders is not going to draw the preferred attention you would like.

Social Media Tip of the Month!

If you have not already done so, take the time to determine who you want to engage with your content and then create the type of content they would want!
