Having been immersed in social media marketing since 2007 when I first hired Mari Smith to teach me what she was learning about Facebook, I have come across so much resistance from clients and entrepreneurs. In 2010 I recorded a five part video series on the 5 reasons people avoid social media and why it’s time to get over it. What amazes me are those 5 core “reasons” are still the same ones I hear day in and day out as I travel and speak around the world.
So it was only natural that I’d write a book that took a deep dive into this topic of resistance. Social Media Myths Busted: The Small Business Guide To Online Revenue is that manuscript. Having a coaching background, I am all about people begin able to transform their lives and businesses. Usually that’s an inside job and requires a bit of honest introspection. The first part of the book uncovers the resistance and subtly coaches the reader through a journey to unwinding resistance and empowering them to create a new perspective on social media that enhances their brand, grows their influence and bring real and profitable relationships in the door.
The very exciting part is that I have an army of social media pros also chiming in throughout the book with their coaching and specific advice on creating revenue online using social media.
