The Problem With Social Media

Image result for the struggle is real meme

Everybody loves watching their stats go up for ANY venue.  We’ve all been told that social media can be a great tool for promoting ourselves…but it doesn’t always feel like it.  People get swamped with so much information, so many stories in their newsfeed, etc….is it possible for us to stand out?

Facebook is smart by tempting us to buy their “boosts”.  It seems like such a good idea.  We see other companies and THEIR ads and think, “Gee, it all seems so professional!”

If only we could all be professionals at self-promotion.

I can’t say I have an answer to this question.  All I know is that the struggle is real.  As one of the Top 100 Self-Publishing blogs (according to Feedspot), you might be tempted to think “WOW, Dominic is great at promoting his brand.”

My response?  “Hah.  I’ll take any credit I can get.  But the truth is, not really.”

What I’m good at is speaking the truth.  For example, navigating the world of social media is REALLY hard.  We could all use some help.

My answer to just about everything is relatively simple:  work together.

Seriously.  I think it’s that simple.

You want to get somewhere big in life?  You’re gonna’ need help.  We don’t become masters without having teachers…we can’t teach without having been taught.  We can’t climb unless someone gives us a foothold.  We can’t become successful without being given a chance.

Give each other that chance.

Here’s all I’m asking.  Find FIVE fellow, aspiring authors, (or struggling self-published authors) and Like their Facebook page, sign-up to their email list, etc.  Just five.  You have no idea the good you’ll do and the happiness you’ll bring.

To be fair, please post links to YOUR Facebook page(s) or other social media outlets, and I will follow YOU.

And last, to be fair to myself, here’s the link to my Facebook page:

Yes, I’m asking for help.  And I want to give people some help too.

Cheers to helping each other out!

-Dominic
