Ladies… do you do social media? Now’s your chance! My good friend, and super-smart and awesome person, Lena West has just released her new course for women called “Real Women Do Social Media“. Essentially, it’s a program for women to learn the in’s and outs of social media. Here’s some info about it.
Thus starts yet another year of hearing about social media. It works. It doesn’t. Don’t do this. Do that. Never do THAT! Always do THIS! At this point, you’re not even concerned with what other people are doing; you’d like to figure out what you need to do about social media — and more importantly, what you can safely ignore!
And, this year comes on the heels of last year, which found you in the same situation – feeling damned if you do and damned if you don’t. This isn’t a just rock and a hard place, this is Gibraltar and Stonehenge.
It’s not for lack of trying though. You go to conferences, seminars and workshops. You diligently take notes, but when you get back to the office, those detailed notes may as well be written in Greek (unless, of course, you can read Greek, and in that case, some other language you can’t read). There’s work to do, gym memberships to make good on and family to care for. Who the HECK has time for social media anyway?!?!
For something that’s supposed to be such fun, it sure seems like a complete and utter downer. You can’t imagine why in the world you would want to spend time “getting your feet wet” with Facebook, when there are little feet in your house that need to be washed!
And, while you’re not prone to violence, if one more 26-year-old gadget-guy gives you the why-don’t-you-just-set-up-an-account-it’s-free-and-everyone-is-doing-it-go-ahead-jump-right-in look, you’ll… well, you get the picture.
Here’s the best part. I’ve got a free seat for you to win. Leave a comment on this blog and make a Tweet about it using the hastag #RWDSM and my name. I’ll pick a winner on Feb 26th.
