If you haven’t spent any time on one of the newest social media websites, you’re missing out on something with great potential.
I’ve been getting more active on it lately, and I’m finding that it gets my creative juices flowing, especially since I’m a visually-oriented person.
While I don’t have the discipline of this New England-based gentleman, (which means that I can’t sit in front of my pc and stay focused enough on one thing long enough to really master it) I am learning how to use it in my branding and marketing efforts.
For example, I threw a comment underneath the image below in the form of a quote. Then I asked for others to do the same. I thought that it would be fun. That was yesterday.
For some reason, I haven’t been able to get the image out of my head for the past 12 hours or so, and then it hit me; I can use this cool image for something else…
Some people don’t understand me. They don’t understand my motivations, at times. They don’t understand why I sometimes write posts that don’t shine a very positive light on franchising.
I have my reasons, and they have to do with a word that I want you to focus on for a moment;
That word is what drives me. It’s what I focus on when I’m writing my articles. Do I do it gently? Not at all. Should I carry a smaller stick when I’m trying to convey a message? Probably. Is my heart in the right place when I write a post like this one? You bet.
The image below is a perfect representation of how I’m now using Pinterest–the newest social media site, to help illustrate how important I feel it is for you to get the professional franchise guidance you need. Does it work?
I know that you’re excited about going out on your own, and becoming the owner of your own business. I understand. I’m just trying to make sure that you understand the realities of small business ownership, and that you haven’t missed anything in your franchise research. I want you to win! Okay?
