Social Media for Entrepreneurs, Creatives and Side Hustlers Q and A Replay

This week’s episode is a replay of a ‘Social Media for Entrepreneurs, Side Hustlers and Creatives’ Q&A session that I hosted a while back. It’s a great one for anybody interested in making an impact and income while doing what you love. Especially if you’re looking to use social media to build a brand, business and community.

A lot of awesome questions were asked that I bet you have too. They ranged from how to start a podcast, how to grow your audience on IG, how to run Facebook Ads, what to do if you don’t have a focus or know what you want your business to be, and lots of other awesome ones.

Q&A is my favorite form of content because rather than the given feedback being general advice, it is specific and nuanced according to the asker’s concerns. This session was no exception.

If any questions come up for you be sure to reach out on social media or email me tom@tomearl.com.  

Would you like access to the Social Media Toolkit that I mention in this episode? Head to tomearl.me/toolkit.

3 Star Reviews

Empathy, communication, and providing value are the cornerstones of a successful business.  In this week’s episode, I share with you an empowering tool you can use to create content, and copy language to connect with your audience.

Rather than trying to guess what your customers, audience, or community wants to hear, why not use their own words?  That’s what is at the heart of the 3 Star Review marketing tool. It provides you with a template you can use to both articulate what stands out about your product, service or project, while at the same time, addressing any objections or concerns people may have.

If you ever find yourself struggling to write compelling sales copy, grants, marketing materials, or how to market yourself, this is the episode for you!

Reviews, 3 Stars, 5 Stars, empowering, empathy, communication, marketing, success, business, customers, audience, own words, products, projects, grants, template.
