  • The book on social media is constantly being written.That’s means there’s no template, no cut & paste solution.We discover what to do by trying things, experimenting and learning.Do more of what works, don’t do what doesn’t, and constantly adjust.
  • People ask me what works on social media.I say “I can’t predict accurately what will work for you – you’ll have to learn by doing.”There are best practices, just not templates.Here’s some suggestions from an NPR study.Be interesting, be conversational, be unique, be topical, be newsworthy, be positive, be authentic, be responsive.Be all the things that make you want to interact with someone in the real world.
