Before we begin our conversation about these different social platforms, you need to heed this gold nugget quote:

At the end of the day, the best platform is the one that you are going to be consistent on and the one you’re excited about.


So many creative business owners neglect LinkedIn – the one platform where it’s totally cool and accepted to talk about your business!

Ross + Hillary discuss why small business owners and young, up-and-coming marketers should be using LinkedIn.

What You Can Do:

✅   Why you need to update and optimize your profile

✅   The benefits of joining AND adding value to LinkedIn Groups 



If you think Pinterest is just for crockpot recipes – you’re wrong. 

Pinterest can be a valuable platform for driving website traffic and building your email list. 

Ross + Hillary discuss why Pinterest’s unique, social media/Google hybrid (combined with user’s desire to learn) makes it a powerful platform for coaches and thought-leaders. 


✅  The difference and benefits of creating a Brand account on Pinterest


TikTok is a great place for businesses but you MUST understand the platform and user expectations so you don’t show up and get a wedgie.

Ross + Hillary discuss how TikTok works and how you can tap into the benefits to grow your business.


✅  How to get started with TikTok
