Find yourself spending way more time than is necessary doing your social media posts? Feel like hiring someone, but not sure you want to spend money on that? There is an easy way to post things to social media without actually spending hours a day or being on social media non-stop. The first tip is to schedule your facebook posts. It is more time efficient to schedule out your posts for a week or more, all at once, than to come on and post every day. There are third party applications that can help you with this, but there is also a way to do it just in facebook. This video shows you how to schedule a post in facebook in your groups.
Here is a video showing how to add sound to a video and how to remove sound using OpenShot video editor. The concept is the same in iMovie and Camtasia.
Here is a quick video using a free program called Open Shot and how to edit your videos. Let me know if you have questions. It is similar in iMovie and Camtasia.
Here are some tips and tricks for selfies. First...which picture do you like the best?
There are some subtle differences, but here is a video explaining!
First off, I am not endorsing Last Pass or getting anything for making this video. I actually have some gripes with Last Pass, but here is why you should be using it or another password manager!
I was talking to a small business owner yesterday and the subject of her website came up. She is paying over $100 a month, for a company to basically do nothing on her website. That's a waste of $1200 and when you are a small business, especially just getting started, that is a huge waste of money. What if I could help you get started on your site and you save $1000+ bucks a year, minus the initial setup?
To buy a domain or webpage site name is roughly $10/year. Then you need to host it somewhere, that's another $10/month (120 a year). That's $130. In 2000, making a website was not for everyone, it was complicated and time consuming. To make edits, you needed to contact someone and have them do it for you. That is the old way. Now, there are tons of sites that make everything super easy. In 5 clicks, you can post a video and some words, in just 5 easy steps. You can easily teach your staff how to post or you can do it. It's super easy these days, plus save money. So save money and gain control! As I was talking to my friends, we realized that I think people just don't know what options are out there and how easy they are now. If you want some help, let me know. I am happy to make some posts on this, and probably will in the future.
Take control and save money! It really can be explained in a way ANYONE can understand. You just need someone to show you! :)
A little video I made on the subject.
Until May 2018, I hadn't. Now, I do at least 2-3 a week. Granted, I did NOT get there overnight, but I finally am not scared of it anymore. I can't edit, I stumble on my words...but it's real. One of the big things I have learned in the past 7 months is that people like real. Unedited, raw, live videos are REAL and people can relate to that.
At first I couldn't figure out what I should be really doing a live video about. I started with some rehab exercises to help people, and did some answering people's questions in groups, and really just when something felt important to me. Now, I answer more of people's questions and things that happen in life that relate to my target audience. I am trying to grow my image naturally for a little bit so I don't have to sell myself as much. As I get more comfortable with doing live's, I found I care less about being perfect and if people fault me for using the wrong word, then are they really the people I want to attract in the first place? No. I want to attract people that like me, relate to me, think I am cute...whatever it is. I got a message the other day that made me smile and reminded me why I am doing what I am doing. I only need to attract certain people, not EVERYONE. We don't all get along with everyone, so let's not try to sell to everyone. We need to build connections. So now I have a board with a list of different topics I want to talk about. Some of them I talk about right away, others stay on the board until I feel like I need to say whatever it is.
Find a system that works for you, but the key is to get comfortable not being perfect. We are human, it's ok to make mistakes. Learn that, get comfortable with that, and things will start to get easier.
Let me start by answering this...I think we all do. Entrepreneurship is hard. It is a mental game just as much as it is a skillset. One of the single most important things I have done, besides have an idea, is surround myself with other entrepreneurs. I joined as many groups online as I could, and some in person to meet others that think like me.
There are days when doubt just sinks in and takes over. The voices in my head say, "can I do this?", "who would want this?", "am I doing this right", "would anyone pay for this?", "can this really help?", and just doubt in general, like "what am I actually doing"? It's a tough mental battle, than if you don't have people to help you through that, it will either take you triple the time, you won't succeed, or you are just all mighty and well done, please share your secrets. I have been lucky enough to find some mentors and others similar to me that all say the same thing. Once you hear one person express the same doubt, there is something nice about it. Whether it's a feeling of not being alone, or a feeling of not being crazy, they both help. We need help to get us out of slumps, because everything isn't prefect all the time and it is hard. I am not going to sugar coat it and say it isn't. I honestly think the hardest part is the mentality.
Keep chugging along, feel free to reach out if you have questions, but definitely find yourself some like minded people, because we are out there, and we ALL need support once in a while.
My name's Amanda and this is a blog about my adventure creating an online Physical Therapy based practice. I will share resources and updates on the process I am doing in order to hopefully give others an idea of where to start in the future.
