Sometimes donating a small amount can have a vast effect on a large scale, but other times your time and unique skills may be far more valuable when applied correctly. Instead of giving $10 once every few months, maybe I can find ways to help market Planned Parenthood so they can go from speaking to 5 million people to 50 million people!
Hey, folks! 👋🏼
Recently, I’ve been getting back into Twitter and I found myself poring over Gary Vaynerchuk’s content again. It’s got me fired up in the best ways, and it came at the right moment.
I want to find ways to talk to a community that constantly inspires me. In the best case scenario, I want to share and help others, but I’ve been struggling to connect in meaningful ways.
I realized I was lacking soul in my interactions with the web. I’m not a robot. I’m not a company or corporation. I had to stop using post scheduling and Twitter lists (like all the marketing blog posts tell you to do), and think that’s going to be enough.
So as a reminder to myself and others:
Let the human from the other side of the computer come through and relentlessly provide value to people. Then, when the time comes that you want them to do something, they’ll happily share, read, buy your work. Remember to be human, kind, and helpful everywhere. This means, not only in real life but also online.
Thank you so much for reading this. No joke, I literally cheer with every page view. If you would take one more moment and share this with someone or tweet at me, it would mean the world to me. See you next time!
