How to Make Money with Social Media – Make It Happen Mondays by Don Crowther
Back in 2008 when I joined Twitter and Facebook it was a free for all. A bunch of us got together with some virtual beers and started talking. There were no rules, no particular agenda, it was a block party. Now as with our lives we move, people get married, have kids and mortgages to pay, so social media has changed a bit.
Originally I joined Facebook for business, none of my family and friends were on and I could post articles and biz stuff without hesitation. Now the family is here and things are all mixed up on my feeds. So I am rethinking my whole SM experience. Now I am planning my own page to direct business to instead of my friend feed. Where I would post anything I reconsidering that too. How do you untangle the mass of friends and family? Maybe you can’t if like me you are in it for a while.
Can you make money on Social Media? I know people who make lots of money online through products and services. I have gotten a couple of speaking gigs through social media but as Don Crowther says my audience was not initially cultivated for making money so I am either preaching to the choir or to people, like my family, who are just not that interested in what I have to offer. So that is my bad and the thing I am slowly rectifying.
How do you handle your social media content and interactions?
