If they aren’t replying to your emails

Has this ever happened to you? You have this amazing coffee chat or discovery call with someone you’ve been looking forward to connecting with for quite some time. During the chat it becomes clear they're your ideal client, and they are ticking all the boxes of someone you’d love to work with! You share how you can help them, and they exclaim, "That’s fantastic! I’ve been looking for something like this. I’m in! Email me the details." Shortly after the call, you send over the details and then… CRICKETS You hear NOTHING back. No replies. No appointments. No payments.   You replay the conversation in your head over and over again.  You ask yourself, "What went wrong? I thought she was genuinely excited to work together...

Last week I shared the Top 7 Things you Need to Know aboutFacebook.   One topic that made the list is the push to move people from Messenger to WhatsApp because of the end-to-end encryption issue. I’ve been getting lots of questions asking how safe it is to use Messenger, and I’ve got answers for YOU.   By DEFAULT Facebook can read everything you share in Messenger, just like they can read everything you post in the Facebook platform (remember you’re paying with your data).   AND so can anyone else (in theory with some not so savory techniques).   Casual conversations that you don’t need any privacy for are ok to have via Messenger just like anything else you feel comfortable about posting on Facebook.   Should you have a conversation that’s sensitive in nature in Messenger? NO Don’t discuss confidential or sensitive business info Don’t share your secret sauce Share nothing you wouldn’t want your mother to know.  😬 What can you do to be more secure on Messenger?

How do you use humor?

I’m a big fan of memes. I’m a big fam of using humor to share information. Using funny memes to share information = Priceless. If you’ve been following me on social media for a while, you know I like to share a funny meme every Wednesday. Not only am I sharing a meme to make you laugh, I’m using humor to share a story and make it stick in your mind.   3 more reasons I like to include humor in my social media posts. I want you to get to know me a little better. I’d like to think I’m pretty funny, so I want to share that part of my personality with you. I’m trying to get your attention. Who doesn’t love to stop the scroll for a great meme? I like to take calculated risks. I do this in my business and in my personal life as well.  Posting something funny is a calculated risk. You don’t always know how others will react. Are you using humor in your social media posts?   What about when you send emails to your list?
