Is social media your nemesis when it comes to marketing your event planning services?


Is it because you are constantly searching for what contents to post, looking for the "perfect" photo or making the "perfect" video or reel?


You did what every social media guru told you to do "POST EVERYDAY! POST ANYTHING! YOU NEED TO SHOW UP EVERYDAY ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA!"


You have taken those 30 days social media posting challenges, paid $9 for premade social media templates, you post everyday and still crickets in your DM. No leads, no engagements, no increase in followers, NADA!


You are overwhelmed, drained and frustrated. You are scratching your head and pulling your hair out. Do all these sound like you?


Well, if this makes you feel any better, you are NOT alone. This is the challenge I hear over and over again. "Social media is not my thing", "I hate social media!"


If you are thinking that social media is not your "thing" and you "hate" social media, how could you possibly think about growing your social media following and using social media to grow your business? There is so much resistance from you that you wouldn't touch social media with a 20ft pole!


I always tell my clients inside our Unstoppable Eventrepreneur mentorship program that the person who is most successful in NOT the person who is the best event planner. It is the event planner who has most VISIBILITY in front of her target audience.


Instead of gritting your teeth and going back to being the 30 days social media hero again, you need to understand WHY you need to create visibility. Not knowing the WHY you do what you do is the number 1 sabotage and reason why people give up doing whatever they do when they don't see instant results.


So instead of telling yourself that you suck at social media, because your thoughts influence your actions and your actions influence your results, how about trying to embrace the fact that using social media to market your business is just part of running your business?


No visibility equals no leads, no leads equals no sales. Now, ask yourself, which is scarier? Social media or not making money for your event planning business??


To be perfectly honest, I am NOT a fan of social media or anything that requires me knowing how to work the technology. When I started Events4Anyone, my 6 figure event planner coaching company a year ago, I didn't even know how to use Instagram! I only had a personal facebook account which I probably post once every quarter just so my friends and relatives in Asia know that I am still alive.
