Social media… do you love it or do you hate it?
Back in 2021, I started feeling burnt out from social media. I was looking at my phone all the time and felt the need to post everything on social media. I had to stop and ask myself how I could get clients a different way so that I could be more present in my life.
This episode is part 2 to episode 4 of the podcast on how to be less dependent on social media. My marketing strategist, Monica Schrock, and I are taking a look behind the scenes one year later at the strategies I’ve implemented to become more present and less dependent on social media.
In 2005, Monica was going to college and playing basketball and the time came to choose a career. They chose marketing because it sounded fun, having no idea that it would stick! After college, Monica moved to Los Angeles and hit the ground running to start the next chapter of their life. It was 2008, smack dab in the middle of an economic crisis. They couldn’t find work, so they served tables and took the projects that came their way. To this day, they’ve never worked in marketing for a big corporation and they love that. For 13 years, they’ve been able to contract for and work with large and small nonprofits and businesses, learning so much about marketing and copywriting and how to do both with less manipulation.
Monica has run a vegan body care line, a lifestyle blog, and a personal brand. They’ve worked with global nonprofits, small businesses, marketing agencies, and people paving their own way. They’ve helped over 200 people, brands, and organizations craft their brand message and increase their sales or donations from double to over ten times.
If you’re also feeling ready to take a step back from social media, this episode is packed with practical advice and strategies for you to try.
