That you link it up with your Acuity if you’ve set up acuity so that people can make bookings with you that’s great. So you want to send them off there so they can book sessions,
You also want to make sure that you make a commitment to create some content with some kind of regularity. That doesn’t have to be every day however, posting every day is really good for you as a creative person.
This way the more you do it, the better you get at it.
The first few of my videos I probably wasn’t as happy with and then over time I’ve become more comfortable.
The first few social media captions I wrote, I wasn’t that happy with them and I’ve become happier with them.
Same with my blog writing and all of my content creation.
The more I do it, the better I get at it simply because I’ve done more of it.
So if you can bring yourself to post every day that’s good and if you can’t, even once or twice a week is fine. As long as you feel good when you create the content.
I think it’s more important to have social media for your business as an interim because it’s free and you don’t need to set much up. It connects you with other people.
A website is a lot of work, I have another video and post all about this.
A website is a big cash investment and a big time investment. You have to have all your wording and messaging figured out. You want to have some great images and you probably need to know what’s going on with your brand in terms of your colors and your fonts.
Definitely in the first six months online, I don’t think that that website is what you should do.
I think social media is great if you want to have a way for people to book with you using Acuity or Calendly, or something like that. Use that as the link on your social media where it says website, it doesn’t have to be a website, it can be your Acuity link, or your Calendly booking link.
So in the short term, it’s great to have a social media platform because it’s free, you get to practice talking about what your message is.
So you can practice talking about the things you care about & talking about how you serve people.
This way you get to practice speaking about your purpose, speaking about your service, writing about your service, making videos, you get to practice all that content creation. And that will support a website later, when it’s time.
You also get used to seeing your face on social media, hearing your voice on social media, just on the internet in general. If you are completely opposed to social media, and you just don’t want to do it at all, it’s fine you don’t have to do it. There are other ways.
I just think it’s cheaper, quicker and easier to set up a social media platform for now, before you crack into a website, I don’t think a website is the first move.
I think I’ve made my point. I think it’s a good idea to have social media. And especially if you are a more sensitive person, a sort of spiritually minded person, you care about personal growth, you care about making the world a better place, about the environment.
If you’re one of those people, social media desperately needs you, because you will bring such a beautiful energy and make the space so much richer.
Even though it feels difficult, I think it’s really important for people like us to show up and shine a different kind of light, so that these spaces don’t become dark and awful spaces, they become places of light and transformation.
I hope you have a really beautiful day. I hope this made some sense. If you are starting up your business and you start a social media account, comment below with your link or tag me in your Instagram post and I will come and say hello.
Lots of love, I’ll see you next time x
