Do businesses or social media platforms owe their customers ANYTHING?

If you don't agree with one of my episodes, it's probably this one. Are YOU OWED anything by businesses or social media platforms? Listen to episode 89 and find out.

“I'm just here in a sandbox. That's my point. It’s not my sandbox. I don't own the sandbox. Zuckerberg owns the sandbox or Dorsey owns the sandbox or Paul and Rohan and their investors own the sandbox. It's not me. I don't own any of those three sandboxes and yet, I can use all three of those sandboxes, and many others.  I can play in them as much as I want, every single day, 24/7, to my heart's content.. ”

 “When you're posting, you're not posting with thousands and thousands of people in mind (you really honestly might not know all of your target audience who's following you), you're posting with one person in mind...that ideal client avatar.

-Bonnie L. Frank 

In today's episode I share why all the followers that most digital marketers are seeking, aren't actually what you want. Social media followers are really just a vanity metric. Many online marketers will tell you that you need tons of followers but if they are not the right kind of followers then you really are wasting your time. It’s important to have followers but they have the right followers. It's important to make sure your ideal clients are finding you.  As an entrepreneur or an online business owner you really want to know how each of the platforms work whether...

JV Partnerships and how to pick the right one for you

 Joint Venture Partnerships are wonderful but choosing the right one for you can be challenging.

There are loads of different ways to do a jv partnership! Here are some things to consider:

  • It should be beneficial to all parties in the partnership...Choose someone who has a similar audience, but not the exact same audience. If it's EXACTLY the same, that's a competitor. If it's someone who compliments what you do, that's a great choice.
  • Partner with people who align with your brand, your message, the way you do things, your vibe.
  • Determine how you divide up the money ahead of time! Is it a percentage? A dollar amount? I go over a lot of different things to consider here in the episode.
  • How big and valuable is their "list?" (email list) compared to your list? Do the people on their list actually open the emails?
  • I describe, in detail, an unfortunate situation that occurred because I did NOT choose a partnership well...a cohost I chose for a Clubhouse room.
  • Remember that just...
