If you're going to post to social media, you must engage. What does that mean? How can we engage without spending hours and hours on every platform? That's what I'm here to answer.

20) What Do You Wish You Could Change About Social Media? Let's Discuss!
Is it the algorithms? Is it politics? Is it censorship? What if the only thing most of us change is our own reactions to and we show up on social media? That might be frustrating or disappointing to hear, but it's also empowering. Let's talk about it!  Next Episode: Brandy's Why. Why am I driven by this topic, Engaging on Social Media? I'll fill you in next week. Thanks for listening.

19) Facebook and Your Brand: Are You Intentional?
You are always your brand. You are always showing others what it's like to work with you. For example, if you're rude to the barista at your local coffee shop, those around you see that. They may be lost forever as possible clients for you. Or, they may agree with you and be your best client ever. The same is true on Facebook.  As we enter a hot political year, how do you want to come across to potential clients? What's your intention? Let's talk about it!  I'd love to hear from you. Reach me at henry.brandy@gmail.com Please share this episode with a friend. I'd really appreciate it!  Join the conversation.

17 Be The Change: Cultivate the Culture You Want to Experience on Social Media
Are you proactive or reactive on social media? Be proactive and cultivate the culture you'd like to experience on social media. Cultivate the VIBE you want, and it will be returned to you.  In Episode 17, I offer you a foundation from which to build the experience you wish to have on social media. That's done from first deciding on the VIBE or Emotion you wish followers to experience when they engage with you through your posts or comments. It could be happiness, humor, empathy, encouragement, or education. You decide then grow that experience for your followers. They will then return it to you. That's how you can BE THE CHANGE.  As always, thank you for listening!!  Questions? Ideas! Points of clarification? Reach out to me at henry.brandy@gmail.com  Need more encouragement in your life?

16) Overcoming Social Media Anxiety
Anxiety: Worrying about events that have not and may or may not happen.  Yes, it's appropriate at times. But for many of us, we get stuck in anxiety. We worry, overthink, and project onto what others will think or not think about our comments, videos, and message on social media. It's enough to give up social media altogether. BUT WAIT!! Don't do that! You have a voice, a message, and a purpose for your presence and engagement on social media.  In Episode 16, Overcoming Social Media Anxiety, I dive into how we simply cannot control how others will respond. What we can control is how we show up. What' most important, is that you DO SHOW UP and SHARE YOUR VOICE on social media.  I discuss my friend, Joel Schueler's, new book, 'Love Your Fear: A Quick Self-Help Guide to Managing Anxiety' and how it applies to our anxiety over social media. It's a great, sincere, and helpful read. There's a link below.  AND, there's more! This week's free Tidbits are SlideShare and Otter. WOW! What great tools. The links are also below.  Lastly, YOU CAN TOO WRITE A BOOk. If you're thinking about it, do it. I offer insights as to why you are closer than you think to have a book out in the world.  LINKS Subscribe to my Newsletter and get the Freebie, 'How to Say It on Social Media.' https://www.brandywhenry.com/freebie Follow me on Instagram for uplifting and fun posts created by me for you. https://www.instagram.com/?hl=en Comments, Questions, Suggestions!?!?

11 G.I.O. Take a Gorilla Interest in Others
Are you taking an interest in others online? Do you see how social media is like in-person networking, a neighborhood BBQ, or your neighborhood cafe? It is! When you're at such gatherings, events, or local places, do you take the time to ask questions about the people you're meeting? I sure hope so! Social media is the same thing but in digital. YOUR CHALLENGE IS THIS! Be GIO. Take a Gorilla Interest in Others for a few weeks. Report back to me how it goes. I'd love to hear! You can find some extra help to achieve your GIO mission here https://www.brandywhenry.com/freebie.  Today's Tips: 1) When recording video, talk as if you're talking to someone who would be most interested in what you have to say. Maybe that's your best friend, an agent who thinks you're brilliant, or your ideal client or customer.  2) Create a YouTube Channel to post your videos. You'll soon have links to send clients, newsletter subscribers, and customers to when you want to expand on a topic or a question they've asked. Click here for my not so fancy YouTube Channel. Just that dozen or so videos allow me to link folks to when I hope to better explain myself and, thereby, help them.  FREE RESOURCE! The pictures and videos on your phone. Seriously! They say so many wonderful things about you.  Uplifting Bit. You truly have good things inside of you to share. You do! You can reach me at henry.brandy@gmail.com  I'm here to help!

10 Introverts Can KILL IT on Social Media!
It's my tenth episode! What a milestone!! Thank you for being a listener. In this Tenth Episode, I break down how Introverts have distinct advantages on social media. Did you know that I'm an introvert? If you're an introvert too, you are likely more thoughtful, more intentional, and more likely to know when to take breaks. I also discuss the flip side of these skills: overthinking, hiding, over socializing. Here's a resource for you to help https://www.brandywhenry.com/freebie  Also in today's episode, I share another funny insight about myself, ideas for posts, a free resource that might be under your nose right now, and an uplifting insight about how you have more to share than you may realize and how to draw that out of yourself.  Send me an email with questions, topic ideas, or just to say, "Hi."  henry.brandy@gmail.com Check out my YouTube Channel, Website, or other areas of interest to you here linktr.ee/brandywhenry  Thanks for listening!

03 Lead Your Team's Social Media Engagement Part Two
In this episode I discuss leading as a role model. I answer three questions. 1) How are you engaging on social media? Allow your team to see what you're doing, how you respond to comments and direct messages, and what you're posting. 2) Are you meeting your team members where they are? In the last episode, I encouraged you to define what you expect from your team regarding social media engagement. In this episode, I invite you meet your team members where they are and develop their social media engagement. 3) What else can you do to help your team? Get to know Canva, and share a weekly image your team can post. Focus on one platform at a time. And, lastly, I offer you a plan for helping your team get comfortable with creating video content.
