Sometimes it is really hard to be true to who you are online.. I reaaaalllly used to struggle with this. I would find myself saying "but me and my online brand wouldn't say that..." or etc. but here's ONE thing that has really helped me. When I get overwhelmed or I'm not quite sure what to say in a post...
I think of ONE person.
I keep that one person in mind that I know needs to hear what I'm going to tell them. I write / speak to them and talk like I'm talking to a friend.
This makes things easier for me for a few reasons:⠀
- I can just think of one person instead of getting overwhelmed with the billions of people online.⠀
- This helps me stay focused and stay true to my own voice and who I am within my business.
- It helps me humanize my brand because I'm talking like I would be in real life.
This simple trick works for ALL of my content.
- Writing blog posts.
I want this for you too!
So the next time you want to plan out your content or write a caption for social media instead of talking to an audience and using terms like "hey everybody or hey everyone, etc." replace those with "hey friend, hey you" or whatever term/ phrase you would use if you were talking to a friend. ⠀
Try this the next time you're planning out your content and let me know if it helps!⠀
You'll be amazed how this one small change will increase your engagement and help you feel true to who you are online.
