Episode 37: Random Stream of Consciousness re: Social Media


Episode 37: Random Stream of Consciousness re: Social Media | The Merriweather Council Podcast

Social media is – obviously – a huge thing right now. And we tend to rely on it pretty heavily for business promotion. In this episode I’m basically just sharing a smattering of thoughts regarding social media, specifically Instagram. Join me for this emotional roller coaster.

In this episode:

  • Recent changes to Instagram that everyone freaked out about
  • What changes I felt were positive
  • Instagram is a business, too
  • “followers”
  • Vanity metrics vs. what really matters
  • I feel you though, for sure
  • Tough love.

My social media marketing class is available here and will help you generate consistent content with ease!

The ebook I mentioned in this episode can be found here
