"I just hate social media and it is definitely not for me!" I remember how convinced and outspoken Leilani was about this topic after we have just reconnected through our businesses after knowing each other for a few years. Who can relate? :)
Social Media can be actually a scary and overwhelming territory, especially when you don't even know what you don't know.
And, the good news is, things can significantly change and perspectives can shift once you acquire some extra knowledge, and some hands-on experience, just like Leilani did... Let's see her story unfold!
What if promoting your Business & Yourself on LinkedIn can be natural & fun for you, and inspiring for others? - Case Study
"As a change coach and consultant, I am working to establish my own practice and business. I see LinkedIn as a great platform to help build a personal and professional brand. However, I wasn't using its full potential.
Part of the challenge was my reluctance to promote myself actively and be visible. It didn't feel natural to me. For example, in the past I would almost never publish my photos on social media.
I realised that my inner attitude, framing, and resistance were blocking me from showing up and actually enjoying the process of growing my practice."

What's a really good idea to do before going for a networking event?
Top Tip: get our LinkedIn profile updated and ready to connect, as it can often serve like, or even replace, our business cards these days!
And it's much more, than just a business card, or a CV! LinkedIn is a place where people can get to know more about what we have to offer. It's a place where we can build new connections, foster relationships, inspire and share our professional experiences with each other, and this all might lead to more business opportunities.
Here is to the fantastic team at the 1st B!Social powerhour session.
A big shoutout to these amazing businesses who chose to B!Social with us in the past few weeks, completing a Social Media strategic training session, attending a 1:1 consultation or one of our signature workshops.
A wide variety of industries joined us, ready to leverage and tap into the opportunities, get more visibility, raise their business profile and tell their stories through Social Media:
Marketing, engineering, IT, arts, agriculture, translation services, health & wellbeing, life & money coach, leadership coach, pet food, kitchen specialist, orthodontics, seafood, photo scanning, kids entertainment, kids accessories, business association, artesian water, property investment, solar energy and also two charities.
Meet the B!Socials :)
Alongside the strategic consultations & trainings I do with clients, workshops are definitely one big pillar of the services I offer at B!Social. During the past 2 years, I enjoyed developing & fine tuning a method and a set of signature courses that deliver practical, hands-on learning by doing, at the same time providing a great social experience, too.
Here is to the Team B!Linked at our last LinkedIn Workshop, that happened to be a special number for this special month. This was our 15th Workshop!
Check out how this group started to raise their profile and grow their business/ organisation with the help of this exponentially growing, also still very underused social media platform, and putting things into action instantly.
