  4. 4. 1 Why the f*** do I need a content strategy?
  5. 5. Everybody’s doing it. Everyone’s selling something. There’s a lot of noise. Participation is up. Engagement is down. Social is now mass market
  6. 6. Niche is what you do! You’re a small business! It’s more important than ever to find your niche

  11. 11. They don’t know how to be themselves.
  12. 12. People want this…
  13. 13. But they end up like this.
  14. 14. Only do what you enjoy. Not only will you be more successful on social media but you’ll have more fun. It’s a win-win. The secret?
  15. 15. Social media is not about selling. It’s not about vanity metrics. It’s not about you. It’s not even about your audience. Disclaimer:
  16. 16. Social media is about relationships.
  17. 17. It’s about the relationship between you and your audience. The thing that reveals. The thing that excites. The thing that changes the world.
  18. 18. Like all good relationships, it’s about building trust and having conversations and connections that actually mean something.
  19. 19. Good social media is all about the unpredictable moments. The human stuff that robots can’t do. It can’t be manufactured.

  25. 25. 3 Conversations & Influencers
  26. 26. Influencers: journalists, bloggers, community leaders..? Potential customers: businesses? mums? fitness freaks..? Where does your audience hang out online? What are they already talking about? What conversations? What topics? What #tags? Who do you want to speak to?
