Does Social Media Need You? You Bet!

Welcome back, Kate Edgar of! Here’s Kate’s take on why You matter to the world of social media. This post reminds me of that famous Martha Graham quote:

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”

 Social media sharply heightens this truth!


.BalaYou say, ‘Who, ME? Does social media need me? I thought it was the other way around: I need social media, right?’

That too.

You need social media to boost your brand. The effort you expend to get yourself and your brand out there will repay you handsomely, done right. Done right involves your interchange on the social channels, sharing the best to educate, entertain and wow your audience with the great stuff they want to hear, see, and interact with. This ultimately deems you an authority, your brand as a go-to for all things to do with your expertise, your product, your service.

This brief article and infographic spell out some great details you should know.

Just why then does social media need you?

Zero in: …wow your audience with the great stuff they want to hear, see, and interact with. If you’re not there, you can’t wow them! And that spells something missing. Your specific audience, your tribe as they’re called, is looking for quality and authenticity. They’re looking for wow. That’s your cue. Don’t keep them waiting.

Heads up. Get your unique you, the feel and emotion around what you do and how you do it – get it out there on social media. Post. Listen. Converse. Wow.

Is getting on social media confusing or intimidating? Here’s what to do. Work with the expert in this business, SBOB –  Small Business Online Branding, to get you up to speed and facilitate your online presence. The sooner you get going the sooner you can fill the void of you on social media.
