Back in June, I wrote a post called Social Media for My Business: 16 Lessons Learnt so Far, where I talked about some of the things that I had learnt on my journey over the last few months. Later that month, I started to expand on some of those lessons in this post (Social Media is like any other part of business it needs goals to keep it on track), which focused on knowing what you want to achieve out your social media strategy before you get started.
Going over the rest of the lessons, I noticed that some of them naturally bunch together so today I want to talk about two of the lessons about geography and what I have learnt.
The lessons were:
The internet opens up potential markets across the globe and, so, thinking globally will help you expand your reach. Don’t be limited by geography.
Reflecting on lesson 2 can mean that we get over-stretched. So, pick what fits and works for you.
What have those meant for me?
One of the main reasons that I started my blog and social media journey was to write a book. I am pleased to say that that journey is coming to an end and I should be in a position to release something sometime in September. Very exciting :)and I will let you know more about this in due course. Over the course of this project being plugged into the global social media network has helped enormously. Here’s some of the ways that I have benefited, specifically, from social media’s global reach:
This has taken a lot of time and has meant that a few other projects have suffered. However, I have decided to focus on pushing this one through to completion with the help of my new global network.
How has social media allowed you to expand your reach across geographies?
