I want to do a real quick post because it’s on my mind, I have no time and I want to see if I can.
I will tell you the two secrets soon, and I know you will think, “duh”. But that’s the point, success on social media is “duh” easy. You simply have to have two things and then it’s “duh” easy.
I am squeezing the hours in the day for as much juice as possible at the moment, but I still like to help people out. I realise that as I put my rates up it takes it out of the grasp of certain people and as long as people don’t take the piss it’s no problem helping them out.
But I sense a lot of people looking for a way to gain social media success without having to spend the time or the effort or the money. I hear a lot of people saying that there is a secret code or it’s really hard to break into. That getting stories on digg means you have to be part or some weird online cult where you have to burn all your favourite Star Trek Dvd’s. Not true.
It’s simply about two things
Attitude and time. I came to this conclusions whilst speeding through the Cornish countryside at 24 mph stuck behind a tractor.
If you have the right attitude and the time to participate, learn, ingest, analyse. You will have success.
Age, not a problem. Look at Glen Allsopp
Money, you don’t need it. Just pay for your internet connection.
Sex, you don’t have to be male. In fact I believe that women have the edge in social media because of their networking skills, check out Michelle MacPhearson
Intelligence, hey, if I can do it anyone can.
The thing is, it took me 6 months of hard graft to get to this point, I don’t see why anyone else can’t do it in 3 months.
As long as you have the right attitude and time everything else will come.
OK, speed post over, have to go and enjoy a balmy Saturday evening on a Cornish beach. It’s a hard life.
