What do you do when you feel overwhelmed with the idea of writing and planning for social media and the thought of marketing your work is both terrifying and boring? Call Julia Hunt!
Julia is a writer with lots of experiencing editing, coordinating content-sharing and 'improving processes to respond quickly to customer needs.' In her own words: 'Get the work done, don’t sweat the trifles, and know which minutiae need attention.'
Julia has worked for ExOfficio and the Platform, and understands connecting all those pesky social media sites with content. Did I mention she is witty, intelligent and funny. What a combo!
I was trying to figure out what I wanted from social media. What I did know is I didn't want to do it. Writing about my work is not easy for me. To get me started with my clothseat store on Redbubble, I asked Julia to rewrite my bio and write a journal entry. Both are much more interesting and they sound like me. I've learned a bit about how to write an interesting post and talking and brainstorming with Julia has inspired me to write.
For clothseat Julia created a tag line so folks understand what I'm doing with my images: clothseat / Style Immersed in Nature.
Julia recommended a way to begin to write; open a blank doc and put your thoughts down. Don't edit, just type or write what you know and want to say. Then revisit what you wrote, going back in to refine and reflect. That's how I got this post started.
If you have an upcoming event you need on social media, and you don't have time, or you don't like to write about what you do, you are overwhelmed with how social media should work for you, and you might not know who your audience is talk to Julia.
