I talk with a lot of other men and women who are solopreneurs. The common theme I hear is about their struggle to self-promote. As a solopreneur myself, I get it! It can be scary to be so vulnerable and put yourself out there for the world to see, but SO worth it!
My best advice for anyone struggling with self-promotion is to be yourself and make a plan. Planning is one of the best ways to make promoting yourself less scary. Treat your social media as a business, and it won’t feel so overwhelming.
Another helpful tool is to have branding photos taken. This will not only save you time but will help people to see you and your personality. If you live in Springfield, MO, I would HIGHLY recommend Brandi Keltner with BGStudios Photography!
The final bit of advice is for your copy. Write how you talk! The more people follow you, the more they will begin to get to know you. Your copy is the perfect way to build that connection.
