Let’s get personal …

“So … how long have you been singing for?”

A week or two ago I was a guest on another podcast, and at the end of the podcast the interviewer asked me this question. Definitely not something I expected. He really did his homework!

A few years back I wanted to be a singer. I started singing when I was a kid, and later on even attended singing lessons. I was in a few bands, performing all around town.

Good ol’ times.

This was one of those questions that caught me off guard.

Not like the question I get asked a lot. And the question I want to address today:

“What’s the #1 thing people should be doing on Facebook, but aren’t?”

Goodbye, 2016.

Can you believe it? Can you believe that we’re this close to closing another chapter and kissing 2016 goodbye?

If I had a billion dollars on my account, I swear I would invest it in developing a device that slows down time. Maybe not all of my money though, I would definitely buy at least 50 different onesies first.

Joke aside, 2016 was over quickly. And I cannot help myself with reflecting back on it and already make plans for 2017.

A story about my ripped jeans … and targeting

A few weeks ago I bought myself a nail polish in the color of our car. Yes, I am that crazy, you better believe it.

I wanted to take it a step further as I always do. So I went to the store to buy a Matte Top Coat just to complement the beautiful color of my nails. Found the Top Coat in under 10 minutes (RECORD!) and I was off.

Just as I was leaving the store, there was a man standing in front of it and giving away some pamphlets to everyone. And I mean everyone.

What was going on? And what has this to do with…targeting?

3 pillars every successful social media strategy has

Can you imagine having access to s step-by-step blueprint on how to build a million-dollar business? Seriously, imagine that right now.

I mean, that sure comes with its downsides, but … heck, the majority of people would take that in a heartbeat.

Sure beats the never-ending pursuit of success while not even knowing if you’re close to the finish line. Or if there even is a finish line for that matter.

But the thing is, while there may not be a blueprint for building a million-dollar business, there is a social media blueprint that ensures an improvement of your engagement rate. Better yet, it guarantees more clients and prospects.

And it starts with 3 pillars.

Facebook Algorithm: Should you be worried?

I could easily compare my summer to a busy street in the middle of the day. A little bit hectic and lots of work to do, but if you like that kind of vibe, you end up enjoying it.

Nonetheless, I needed some time off. Speaking at conferences, an incredible amount of client work, client onboarding, and launching your own products does take its toll. So I spent this weekend in Switzerland on an event called Cars & Coffee Lugano, but we extended our stay a little bit and enjoyed our time in this beautiful hotel with gorgeous spa.

4,200% Facebook audience growth in 1 day

The frustration that usually comes with growing your Facebook audience is incredible. And I get it. When Facebook Page Likes are coming in one a day (or sometimes not even that), it feels like a never-ending drought.

But there’s a solution to everything. Well, usually it is. There’s still no solution for my obsession with onesies and willingness to spend hundreds for them.

But there is definitely a solution for the frustration you’ve been experiencing when trying to grow your Facebook Page.

Last week I experimented with an incredible hack not many people even know about. And the results were fascinating.

Social Media for B2B

Finally! Just a couple of hours ago I finished outlining my talks for two conferences I’ll be speaking at this season, first one being in the United States and the second one in Sweden.

Those outlines are usually the hardest part of planning a talk, and I’m finally starting to feel the excitement of delivering so much value to the audience.

But no matter how well-structured your talk is and how detailed your knowledge about the audience is, people will be left with burning questions at the end of your presentation. That’s perfectly natural as the tactics you describe usually apply to different businesses in a different way.

I still remember this guy from Double Your Freelancing Conference last September that came up to me right after my talk. I already answered a bunch of questions on stage, but he needed me to make something clear for him.
