If you’re a pro at social media, then you can just hop onto Instagram or Twitter and post without giving it a second thought. But not everyone is a pro. Beginners need to take the time to plan out what their posts are going to look like. I like to compare it to walking into the gym for the first time. You can’t just jump up to the 100 lb weights. First, you have to start with that 5-10 lb range. Today we’re going to talk about how to successfully create that 5-10 lb social media post.

In this podcast episode, we share: 

  • Choosing only 1 platform to start out
