Crushing Twitter in 2021



No, Twitter is not dead in 2021! Twitter is also not Facebook. It doesn't have billions of users. It's not Instagram. It's not LinkedIn. It's Twitter! And Twitter has a place and it's not going anywhere. There are Reasons Why I believe in the Future of Twitter. And if you want to crush it on Twitter in 2021, I'm going to share with you some tips that can help you crush it on Twitter this year.

Crushing YouTube in 2021

social media Feb 04, 2021

Do you remember when YouTube was just known for funny cat videos or tutorial videos? Now that the platform has significantly evolved, we see a lot of new YouTube channels every day offering high-quality entertainment, news, and comedy. 




YouTube continues to explode. The time that people are spending on YouTube is significant. It's essentially the new TV and people are actually watching it on their physical TVs. But it's mobile, it's desktop and it's TV. What we're seeing is this time a video view continues to expand.

The time that people are spending at any time on YouTube continues to increase. So, it's not just short cut videos, not even just instructional videos to figure out how to fix your headlight. It's a lot more than that. And it is still funny cat videos and it is still tutorial videos, but it's also for entertainment.

Crushing Facebook in 2021

With all the new social media platforms emerging, we can’t help but ask: Is Facebook even a thing in 2021 or Is Facebook Going to Die Like Myspace Did?

Truth is, Facebook is very much a thing in 2021. It might not be the cool new thing, but it still has billions of active users around the globe and it's not just Facebook.com. It's a family of apps including its Messenger, its groups, its pages, and its profiles. Facebook even owns Instagram as well, and Messenger on Facebook.com and Instagram have now merged together. Facebook has grown so much through the years and it has no sign of slowing down. It is able to keep up with trends and technology and The Future of Facebook is definitely something to look forward to.

There's so much that's integrating with Facebook and in this episode, I'm going to share with you how you can crush it on Facebook in 2021.


 

So Facebook is probably not the platform that you're like, ‘I'm going to crush it on Facebook in 2021’...

Crushing LinkedIn in 2021

If you’re looking at building more business relationships in 2021, you should focus on crushing it on LinkedIn!

Too many people perceive LinkedIn exclusively as a platform where you just post your resume and look for a job.. LinkedIn is so much more than that. 

In this episode, I share practical tips on how you can maximize LinkedIn through connecting with business professionals in your field.


  

So you're looking to engage further on LinkedIn. And so many people have perceived this to be a place where you just want to post your resume and hopefully get a job and apply for jobs. But at the end of the day, LinkedIn is a social network. And so while it's a great place to look for a job, at the core it's more than just a job search. It's more than just a job finder. It's a place to build relationships professionally. It's a place to grow and to learn professionally, to connect with others in your field, to connect with others that are connected to your field.
