Some People I Follow

I’m sure you have favorite people that you follow on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. So do I. The first person I am going to tell you about is Gillian Perkins. I found her on YouTube when I started this blog. She is a very wise young lady. Her videos are about living, entrepreneurship and success. She teaches about starting a business, making money with a blog and posting on social media. And she helps everyone who watches her YouTube videos to learn how she makes money on YouTube. Go and watch her so you can get her wisdom too.

The next person I follow is Afra. Her blog is at https://shemeansblogging.com/. She teaches about making money with a blog and getting your blog more visitors through social media. She put a couple of her blog posts on Pinterest and I read them. Then I started to follow her. And now I am in a group she runs on Facebook. Cool. Right?

The next two people that I follow are family. My sister Patty Lee and her daughter Crystal. My sister and I sell cosmetics and my niece sells Lularoe. They both do live presentations on Facebook to show the newest items. It’s fun to watch them and sometimes I buy something from my niece.

Now back to YouTube, I just started watching “The Sunny Show”. She teaches how to have a YouTube channel and get subscribers.

And another person on YouTube is T Bone who teaches about a game I like called Legendary Game of Heroes.

There are shows about life hacks that are interesting and I always watch the How-to videos if I have a new gadget or need help with repairs around the house.

I said all of this to show you that everyone can use social media for sales. Looking back at the people I follow and what they do to help their community helps me understand that we can all find a way to help others on social media and make money at the same time.

If you have tried some of these things, let me know what you tried and how it worked for you.

YouTube for Social Media Marketing

Think about how fun it is to watch a short video with interesting colors and antics.  YouTube is so popular and fun.  It is perfect for displaying your products. You will need to get a Channel for that.  I don’t have one yet. 

There is a way to make money by making your own videos or making a compilation of someone else’s videos (you must show credit for the maker of the original video).

 I just found out that 5 Minute Crafts makes these compilations.  They have a huge following and I am one of their subscribers. Here is a link to a video.

 It is mind-boggling to think of all the possibilities pertaining to this particular social media platform in regard to marketing.

´╗┐What can be found on Pinterest?

The first thing that made me interested in social media networking for sales was a makeup company that my sister sells for. The company is Younique. They are people that care so much that they have a foundation to help women who have been sexually abused. This problem has been of great importance to me and my sister.  This link goes directly to their foundation, https://youniquefoundation.org.  Giving to help women learn their worth and beauty.

This link will take you directly to my Pinterest boards,  https://www.pinterest.com/lalarae29.  The variety and beauty that are available in this social media is nothing less than amazing.  If I start looking at all of the pictures there on my Home page, it will be hours before I want to stop. 

Pinterest and sales don’t seem to go together. And I had never thought of Pinterest as a way of helping to get the word out about a product until I started searching for information about make-up. Make-up and make-up tips came up and then I found Younique. And in my searching I found great direct sales advice. Things I have never found anywhere else, This advice is everywhere but not as easy to find. Pinterest is great because it is very organized much like an artist’s morgue.
