Social media strategies is something you know you should be better at doing. I’m sure you have gotten the automated Twitter DM with some lame, meaningless message that is totally irrelevant. You ignore it and move on or maybe even “unfollow” the person who sent it in the first place.

Your goal with your social media strategies should be to make yourself as authentic as possible. People follow and become engaged with people. Not robots.
So just how do you make your social media strategies more meaningful?
It starts with standing up. Next you have to show up, then be authentic. If you want to prosper with social media, you have to understand how it all works together.
