If you think the social media is only for having fun, relaxation, chatting away or seeking for destiny helpers or giveaways 😂 think again. You can do much with social media other than the above listed. Social media have become an invaluable tool and a convenient way to reach out to a large audience easily.
There has been a significant increase in the number of social media users and with such a large number of users, gives a great platform to boost one’s career or business success since one can connect with numerous professionals or customers from different areas. As an introvert, I always restrict myself to a few friends. I hardly add or accept friends. However, recently I opened up to accept every friend request. What I experienced got me worried - Their first point of communication via inbox is to ask for one financial support or the other without knowing I have more financial needs than them. hahahah! My dear youth, this is not the best way to go about funds seeking. I will stop here for another day but for now, let's learn something important.
Few ways to make the best out of social media and grow your business/career: 1. MAKE YOUR PROFILE A PROFESSIONAL ONE: Update your accounts regularly with activities, learning or work done. Have an optimized professionally looking profile picture and bio, making it easy for recruiters/business/organizations etc to find and offer you opportunities related to your field, skills or talents. A student? What talent or skills do you have; what are you passionate about? Put it out there 2. USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO SHOWCASE YOUR EXPERTISE: The growth of the internet and social media has made it easy for job seekers, employers, potential clients etc to find you. To use this trend to your advantage, showcase your skills, passion, talents through your posts and what you share online, highlighting your gifts and capability. Perhaps, there is someone out there looking for a perfect match for your skills! They may come looking for you and not you going via their inboxes to seek for support.
3. JOIN AND BE ACTIVE IN ONLINE PLATFORMS OR GROUPS Taking part in online groups/platforms is a significant way to build and grow one's business or career. I've met a lot of upcoming artistes, entrepreneurs etc seeking for guides and lo, they didn't belong to any platform or group related to their business sector. Such groups might be rich in related discussions or trending topics in your sector. You might find such communities influential and useful in building your career/business. They can offer you valuable information on growing your business or career. Through such groups, you can come across individuals who can be of significant help in your career or business advancement. 4. INTERACT WITH LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE: The social media is full of people with diverse skills, knowledge, and experience in different fields. Interaction with the right individuals can guarantee you both personal and career growth. Make sure that you establish new connections within your area of specialization, connect with them, and ensure that you engage in fruitful discussions and not asking for support always. No one will be willing to help you for nothing. Usually, it is recommendable to offer value for any connections you make so that the other party can see your worthiness. However, from my recent experience, none is offering me value but wants to grab and grab. (To be continued).
