If you’re anything like me, you’ve said this to yourself before:
“I’m not smart, business-savvy, or extroverted. Social media marketing isn’t for me.”
These are the real words that bounded my life for several years before discovering I could publish content without having to leave home or “break out of my shell” trying to network at live events.
It took a lot of time before I figured out I didn’t have to be:
- smart (because there’s Google and Youtube),
- business-savvy (to an extent, but again Google, Youtube, and maybe some smart friends),
- or extroverted (because I am naturally a quiet and reserved person).
Rather than being as loud and obnoxious as I could in real life, I found something else that worked for me.
Rather than be bound by my true quiet and reserved nature, I do this instead.
To be as extroverted and loud as possible in publishing content.
What’s the difference?
Extroverts as I see them = life of the party, loud, talkative, energetic
Extroverted in content = posting content often, experimenting with new content often, posting content across several social media platforms, engaging with other users of a platform
The best part?
I don’t have to leave home and talk IRL with other people.
And I use this trick today in our family business social media accounts that constantly brings in $$.
So can introverted, shy, quiet creatives win on social media?
Yes. Yes they can.
