Social media offers a huge opportunity for webpreneurs like you to reach your target audience directly and in a much faster and better way. You don’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars on marketing and advertising to get your message across.
And the coolest thing about it is that once one of your ideas takes off, it can catapult your business brand to instant fame and fortune. And that’s for free! When one person likes your content and shares it to another person who shares it to another, and on and on it goes, you just achieve viral stardom.
Here are some great tips that will get people to spread your ideas:
Dare to be bold
Keeping your ideas to yourself, being afraid to test something out there, or being shy and wishy washy will never cut it in today’s digital, hyper-connected age of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The world of ideas belongs to the bold.
If you have good ideas that are positive and strong, share them.
Be a keen observer
Pay closer attention to your industry, the trends, and the successful and unsuccessful people related to your business. Learn as much as you can from them. Figure out not just the “what” but also the “why” of their success. Or failures.
Boring has no room in the world of ideas. Create excitement in your industry, and the business communities that you belong to. If people find your ideas exciting, they will talk about it, pass it on to others, and you’ll soon have a wildfire of ideas spreading.
Ideas may resonate astoundingly, or die a natural death. But they definitely need to be explored and tested out there in the real world to see how they’ll pan out. If they fail, at least you know what’s not working. And if they do work, then you just hit a gold mine!
Keep your ideas easy to spread
For your ideas to take off, be sure that you make them easy for people to spread around. Encourage them to share your ideas through their social media pages, email and blog. Use a user-friendly format that is easy to share.
