Here’s my “unboxing” Facebook Live Video. It’s my first real attempt, and you’ll notice how silly I am. Oh, you didn’t notice where I stumbled, or made errors, or whatever?

That’s what I wanted to show you. That just like in real life, you get caught up in listening and watching, and the everyday goofs we all make, are not the things you particularly see or hear.

Perhaps me, making a silly fool of myself, will inspire YOU to try a live video or two. I hope so!

Is mum the only word for your social media pix? TGtbT.blog recommends you get chatty!

Is mum the only word for your social media pix?

Are your pictures silent?

That is, do you take shots of your merchandise and that’s it, you just post them on all those social media channels you have so carefully constructed… without a WORD as to what we’re looking at, why we might possibly want it, indeed, what YOU were thinking to bother showing it to us?

Never post “silent” pictures. They are ineffective and worse, they’re annoying to your fans and followers. You’re interrupting them to get their attention, then giving them nothing for their time.

Worried that you’ll have nothing to say? (This is the weirdest thing about my resale friends… they always fret that there’s nothing to say when I ask them to caption a photo, write a blog post, be social in social media, but DANG! You can’t shut ’em up when they get together in person!)

Well, write this sentence out and tape it to your office wall, your laptop, heck, your forehead:

What’s so FAB (Features, Advantages, Benefits)?

What do I mean? You can use Features, Advantages, and/or Benefits to make your pictures sing! Like:

Features: “The industrial zipper on this lace blouse takes it from ho-hum “sweet” to SWEEET!”

Advantage: “Outfit your new office with this swivel chair and desk for $150 and save your new business startup budget hundreds of dollars on Day One!”

Benefit: Keep the kiddos warm this winter: Our selection of snowsuits and snow boots will have them playing outdoors for hours (ah, blessed silence…)”

See? When your thinking gets FAB, your social media gets results!

Websites. Ugh.No heavy lifting involved with these tips from TGtbT.blog

Is that your reaction? I’m betting it’s because of

  • The expense, time, and communications problems with your website expert.
  • The amateur look of so many of those “instant website” programs.
  • The difficulties of constantly getting your webmaster to update stuff.

Guess what? There’s a simple solution with no heavy lifting involved. You can do it, and keep it updated, yourself. If you can construct a display window, you can display your business in your space, for your benefit, without following Facebook or Instagram or anyone else’s “rules.”

Example: (more…)
