it's exhausting ….. to come up with new ideas everyday
Mary Beth Farver
Where to begin!
It follows me everywhere; no tech support; don’t keno wha it is
Challenging: how to evaluate relevance of various tools, how to measure ROI.
Instagram is a real hassle, and so is Twitter to set up a business site.
Writing new content.
and which tools are best
time and challenging to come up with new ideas
how to get more followers
how to get started
how to engage
how to pick the most effective ways to market on social.
and get more followers
what it’s good for
I’m starting a live segment on financial education on social media platforms. I’m in the process of branding and learning how to use social media in a business aspect.
I’m a financial consultant.
We do all our customer service on FB chat and email. And we are available ALWAYS. We can’t win on price, we CAN win on customer service
At the Rohnert Park Chamber we share our members post on our chamber FB page, great way to repurpose what they are already doing.

Facebook. Because I use it.
FB because it matches my customers demo, Instagram because it’s visual
Facebook lots of members are on there too
Twitter - Meal Delivery news
am using Instagram, its great for pictures. Facebook, because I advertise there
Facebook because of livestream and events
and twitter too
I am using Facebook and Instagram, Because I think are the most popular
IG I like it and FB but new and just learning how to use Facebook business
Instagram & FB as they are linked to do both at once
Facebook and Instagram- most popular
Instagram because it simple, and facebook a larger community.
Facebook, just because of history!
FB and IG. catering is very visual
QUESTION: Regarding a GoogleMyBusiness listing, it has its own analytics tool. Let’s say you’ve already written a 750 character business description with essential keywords. If you use their analytics tool afterwards, wouldn’t you just see the same search keywords that you already have? Or, would there be new keywords to add in?
I want to use YouTube too. but making videos is a tough one.
Just FYI, there was a question related to GoogleMy Biz above, though I know you may not have time to answer. THX
RP Chamber and City created a new Save Rohnert Park Restaurants and Businesses when COVID hit; same concept as Save Sonoma County Restaurants
Does an emoji count as a comment, too?
if my post is seasonal greetings, should I delete afterward?
how long should these live videos be
can you go live in IG then post to FB?
How often should we go live? I go live every first Friday of the month for “Financial Fridays” but not sure if I should be engaging more.
should I have join email button, if I already have message button on my website?
Is there a way to have a paywall to earn for "teaching" on FB?
Do you offer a class on how to use fb for business?
what does likes mean on your post?
Want to talk about social proof?
there are videos of past classes on the sbdc website here: https://www.napasonomasbdc.org/services/workshop-library
