Limits. Triggers. Emotions. High on the agenda this week. So many things happened... Not just with my clients, but in me, too, and, on so many levels, in our global interconnected world, and in the world of social media, too. Hard to find the right words...
Realizing that something limits us from growing further, or keeps us limited, like rock walls - it’s often our beliefs and mindsets. Like what keeps us back from showing up on social media and talking about our business.... and being really ourselves.
I’m on my way to San Diego!!! A very quick check in to say that I will be attending Social Media Marketing World, for the 3rd time already, and I can’t wait to tap into LOTS of new knowledge and bring back with me the learnings, the new tips, trends, and what’s hot in the world of social media these days!!!
Social Media is constantly changing as we all know, new things emerge all the time, new features come and go, and it’s not easy to navigate this space, especially when you have lots of hats on and have to manage other aspects of the business, not only social media marketing.
Following the wonderful feedback from you all, I am excited to share with you the latest "B!Socials in the Spotlight" series - yes, now it's turned into a series! - featuring my lovely clients who we had the chance to work together with on their Social Media Marketing, and who are each doing some amazing things in their respective fields.
A big shoutout to you all who stepped up, decided to invest in yourselves, put in time & some thinking behind your posts to bring real & valuable content to your clients, dared to be brave, do something new or out of your comfort zone, and to all of you who chose to B!Social with us in the past few months to take your business or organisation to another level. Here is to leveraging the power of Social Media!
Everyone, please meet the B!Socials - connect with them, follow them, B!inspired by them and their top tips! And who knows, you or a friend might actually need one of them in your life, right now?! :)
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.
It's the time to #bsocialnow !
Last week was big for me. I flew over to Sydney to receive my Finalist Certificates for the Social Media Marketing Awards Australia & New Zealand, the industry's biggest award in our region.
I was voted into the TOP 5 by a select group of international judges, in 2 categories:
The past few days have been quite intense, with of course, the Gala Ceremony being the highlight of last week! I am feeling a tremendous amount of excitement, honour and pride to be a finalist. Also, receiving lots of valuable feedback from my colleagues gave me an awesome boost and professional reassurance to keep continuing what I do in this space.
And then, when I arrived back home, a sense of tiredness rushed through me. It’s like, you know, when you are on a road trip, it’s amazing, you gain lots of new experiences, and then finally you arrive, ready to take a break, pause, and just contemplate on the memories while you look back on your trip. Now that’s what happened to me.
So I took a few days to reflect, look back, evaluate, and of course treasure the moments, the journey. The B!Social journey that started almost 2 years ago, right here, in Nelson, New Zealand. Born out of a new challenge, and with it, a complete new me was born.
Thank you to each and every one of you who have been following, were/ or are part of this journey.
Here are some of my favourite highlight moments of the Social Media Marketing Awards Gala Dinner. Thank you Social Media Marketing Institute, I will never forget! I am now back, full of new energies, inspiration, and lots of valuable new knowledge to share.
