065. Getting Off Social Media As A Business Owner with Hillary Rea
Imagine this: you wake up in the morning, grab your phone, and can’t seem to find any of your social media apps. They’re gone. Poof! Social media, as you know it, no longer exists.
Do you know what to do without social media? Better yet, do you know how to run a business without it?
We’ve spent the past 15 episodes talking all about how to show up on social media…but what if you don’t want to be on social media anymore? How do you move forward if your efforts on Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn, Instagram, or Facebook, aren’t working anymore? What if your social usage is becoming a stressor or a hassle?
To close this series about social media on the Talk Copy to Me podcast, I’ve invited Hillary Rea, founder of Tell Me a Story, to join me and talk about getting off social media when you’re a business owner. Hillary originally used social media as a way to market her business, but eventually decided to get off of all the platforms she was using and not market on social media for her business.
In this episode, you’ll learn about why Hillary made her decision, how she adjusted and adapted her business to continue marketing without social media, and the many ways you market yours if you’re thinking about getting off social media yourself.
