As I mentioned earlier, I attended Free State Social Thursday and learned a ton. Here’s my key points from Shawna Coronado, who is a healthy eating blogger and author of Gardening Nude.

Key points/quotes from Shawna’s Presentation entitled How Building A Personal Social Media Brand Has Brought Financial Success, Sponsors, World Travel, and Helped Me To Make A Difference On A Global Level

  • No matter business or personal, itโ€™s all personal on social media.
  • Social media is a like a real-life community/neighborhood
  • One person can make a difference for a community
  • How to sell a book? Build a brand!
    • Define target market
    • Define key message and values
    • Define what your product is
  • Unify brand with your content and message
  • Sharing communications should be your number one goal
  • In social media, you are the brand.
  • Every message you post will say who you are as a brand- so be positive and nice! Answer every inquiry kindly.
  • Help others without expecting anything in return.
  • Follow those who follow you
  • Provide consistency with content and posting times
  • “If you don’t have anything to talk about- go out and start doing something.”
