As a business owner, you want to leverage every tool available to you to maximize the ability to reach your target audience and get the word out about your business.
Social media is about human connection. It allows you to find anyone you want and connect with them. It allows you to stay in touch with prospects without being annoying, desperate or salesy. It allows you to be visible to your target audience, get noticed and get their attention. All you have to do is have a plan and be systematic.
Social media has leveled the playing field for small business owners, distributors included. It gives us an amazing opportunity to multiply interactions with the people that are most important for your business. It might not be the same as having a coffee with someone face to face, but you can get to know them and they can get to know you.
Why would you be missing a tremendous opportunity to multiply for influence by using the digital tools available?
If you’re looking to do more with social media in 2020 and you’re planning to go to PPAI Expo, I’ll be conducted Learning Labs on January 12th, I’ll be honored to teach you how to use these tools to spread the word about your business to your target audience, help you create a plan, and get you started.
Seating is very limited so if you’re interested, reserve your spot early.
For the last 4 years, we’ve been working almost exclusively with distributors as their marketing partners, and I’m bringing that experience to the PPAI Learning Labs to share it with you and help you get your own plan off the ground. I’ll be also providing you with our social media planner, which has taken many, many hours to develop.
Here is the description of each Lab, you can find details and registration links on the PPAI Expo website, on the Education section, I’m including direct links to each.
