How do you Boss Up?

In a world where we have we literally have access to more than one billion people each day through social media, it is the perfect time for you to Boss UP in your entrepreneurial efforts!

Whether it be a product or service, platforms such as FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram gives you the option to advertise for FREE in any innovative way you can dream of.

Get connected1

No, you do not need to use all platforms, but I do suggest you chose the platform that work best for your business and boss the heck out of it.

Below I will share some tips that will assist you in becoming the marketing social media maven along with showcasing some of my favorite bosses on different platforms that you can learn from also.

1. Who is your target audience? 

Know your target audience in order to offer the right content! some tips are:

— The younger generation and even teenagers go for the Vine, Snapchat, YouTube, Tumblr, and Instagram.

— Soon-to-be-wives and moms are all about Pinterest for the photos and DIY’s.

— It’s stated young parents and grandparents alike can be found on Facebook.

— If you focusing on Business owners and leaders, find them on LinkedIn.

— Influencers and bloggers love Twitter, Tumblr and now even Instagram.

2. Be consistent with your message and your handle.

Don’t make it difficult for people to find you or know what it is you offer. My handle across all platforms is @CoachKSpeaks . What’s yours?

When you know what you are offering, you need to stick with that message across the board. Maybe it’s offering advice to young entrepreneurs or fashion tips… whatever it is, you need to be consistent with the message.

 

 

3. Network! 

Want to get discovered? Well, follow those you admire, compliment, get to know and support in order to receive the support!

4. Repurpose current content.

I’m sure you currently have lots of content that have been used on your blog or social media accounts. It’s time now for you to streamline the pipeline to repurpose the content already used. Update with current graphics. Delete those things that are not of relevance to the message you’ve committed to and start posting as it’s new.

5. Ride the wave

What is currently being discussed on social media right now? Study the hashtags and ride the wave to receive some recognition and supporters. Examples are on Instagram, #MotivationalMondays have over 4million posts which means it’s being used frequently. If you are a coach, USE THIS HASHTAG and watch your likes and followers increase with your consistency. It’s great to create hashtags when you have specific challenges going on or you already have a large following over 10k but until then, nothing is wrong with riding the wave.

Here are a few of the #bossbabes I follow and appreciate when it comes to consistent messaging and marketing.

stacia True #BossBabe! Over 150k followers and it continues to grow daily. Dr. Stacia is consistent with sharing free success and business coaching to her followers with a touch of her lifestyle for inspiration of where you can be if you utilize the awesome tools she offers.

The colors she use are vibrant and consistent throughout her page.

On FaceBook her message continues with more content. You will find blog links, quick tips and even some posts from Instagram with a longer detailed post.

When you go to her other pages such as twitter, or youtube channel you will find the same or more content shared.

 

 

 

Another Boss! Simple yet highly impactful. Charlotte of Confessions of a Clean Foodie does an amazing job staying consistent with her message of clean eating with dynamic photos on Instagram!

Another favorite, Hilary Rushford who is also crushing the game on Instagram with almost 100k followers, shared phenomenal advice about proper marketing on Instagram. In her words, with the algorithm going on Instagram, this is the year for you to choose to crush it or step aside. I’m taking some of her tips and plan to crush it. Will update my stats as they increase. 🙂

5 Podcasts every #BossBabe should give a listen

listen

I’m a big advocate of personal development which = self investment. One of the ways I invest in myself is listening to other inspiring and kick ass boss babes that have started from the bottom now they here! Women who struggled and still made it inspire me to keep pushing.

Below are my Top 5 Female Podcasts that will positively affect your life, business and even relationships! Be sure to share who you listen to that keeps you motivated.

  1. Myliek Teele of My Taught You

Myliek is the founder of CurlBOX and has transparently shared her story. She speaks openly on how she started before she was completely ready without even having enough packaging… literally sending product in basic brown boxes. She speaks on her fall with a DUI while starting her company and how she rose to being one of the best in the game right now! Her authenticity is what I love about her! One of my favorite podcasts of hers is one that was posted just recently entitled “Maintaining Momentum”. Give it a listen and be sure to follow her work.

2. Courtney Sanders of Think & Grow Chick!

Courtney’s gift is to give to other female entrepreneurs. She focus on helping business owners like myself, unlock the full potential to think & grow into our purpose. She shares openly about the unsuccessful launch of her business back in 2009 and talks candidly about the steps she took to succeed and how you can do the same thing. Click her pic below to follow her podcast. One of my favorites is entitled “Do You Boo: Defining Your Own Success vs. Learning from the Best”

3. Sophia Amoruso the original #GirlBoss 

Another fabulous and open book entrepreneur! Sophia is the founder of Nasty Gal but literally came from rags to riches by personal poor choices. She dropped out of school and found herself dumpster diving, hitchhiking and stealing prior to finding her purpose and creating Nasty Gal. She recently launched #GirlBoss Podcast late 2015 and I’m already loving her interviews and candid conversations.

4. Jess Lively of The Lively Show

This inspiring lady is all about encouraging you to live with “value-based intention.” Her podcast has over 2 million downloads and is true boss babe status! “The Lively Show is designed to uplift, inspire, and help you add a little extra intention to your everyday.” From topics of wellness to career and business, Jess Lively covers it all. One of my favorite interviews is with Nicole Balch that gives business advice. Be sure to check out more by clicking her photo below.

5. Koereyelle of The Single Wives Club

Koereyelle “Confessions of a Werkaholic” podcast series interviews various boss babes around the US sharing their learnings. Not only is this a great addition to my podcast listening pleasures, her “Mindset Mondays” are equally informative. So this one is not really a podcast but must not go unmentioned. Koereyelle offers weekly “Mindset Mondays” conference calls and shares her personal advice, learnings and motivation for savvy ladies everywhere. Sign up to get a part of the action here! The one I received this past Monday entitled “Pray then Prepare” was phenomenal. Don’t miss out on her great advice.

Do it with Passion!

girl17

It’s amazing how much success follows the person that chooses to do it with passion… (of course I’m talking about sharing your talent with the world)

When studying why people like Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson and even Jessica Alba become successful million and even billionaires are largely due to them following their passions.

They chose to not only stand behind something that they were passionate about but also to master the craft! From tv to basketball, technology and creating more green products… they chose to be the best at it.

If you are looking on ways to allow your passion to turn into success, study those before you like Steve Jobs who didn’t give up on his dream because it was unsuccessful the initial release… he mastered the craft, re-introduced the product and success followed.

SO… here are some questions for your to consider:

What is your passion? How are you giving it to the world currently? and lastly, How can you give it on a grander scale?

Share your thoughts below.
