Social media mistakes….what to avoid.

Social media is now the most popular online activity, but how should businesses do it right?

Successful social media marketing is not just about having fancy tactics. It also means not making those mistakes that cost you reach, engagement, fans, and customers. This presentation shows you how to avoid common social media mistakes, and what you could do instead.

 

Tanya Paulse is a freelance content solutions provider who helps small businesses to improve and customise their online presence.

Before starting Teaspoon Content Solutions, Tanya worked for 19 years as an analyst at a large South African bank. Then she woke up, poured the coffee, and had a long think. The ensuing spontaneous career change from corporate slave to freelancing boss led Tanya through the maze of publishing, both print and digital, which led to digital media, which led to social media.

Tanya swopped transactions for typos, sureties for syntax, and analysis for algorithms. Not that different, really. It’s all about analysis and interpretation. What do you say? Who do you say it to? Why should ‘they’ care? Tanya provides the ‘how’ and ‘when’ to these questions, and more.

What she knows for sure:

·        She knows what she’s good at, and won’t just tell you – she’ll show you.

·        She knows what she’s NOT good at, and keeps it real.

·        She is herself. A broad social media generalist, with a few niche skill sets. When coupled with the firepower of your business, Things.Get.Interesting.

·        She is not a ninja or a guru. That was only cool in 2007.

When she’s not experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, Tanya is spending quality time with her energetic toddler and ambitious teenager, or engrossed in zombie shows.

Confidence Crusader, Abigail Klopper, our guest speaker at Avontuur Business Club this June.

I’m the go-to girl for Women’s Confidence.

I believe that every woman has an obligation not only to themselves but to the women in their life to show up in this world as their most confident self. This journey is a lesson in self-love,  self-acceptance & self-respect – to get us all to a place where, IN SPITE of our imperfections, we are confident. I believe that this world needs more feminine input, influence and impact, and that confidence is the key to helping women show up in a more significant way. By helping women recognize and cultivate their confidence through my Specialist Women’s Portrait Photography, my online Conscious Confidence course, professional speaking, workshops & online platforms, I hope if nothing else, that a single confident women standing tall offers proof and permission for a wave of women to begin their own confidence crusade.

I create to entertain, inspire, transform & empower. 

Confidence is EVERYTHING

This journey of elevating women’s confidence is the culmination of years of observing how women show up in this world – how they choose to exist and express themselves throughout the phases of their lives. I was an insecure impressionable young girl who was always looking for the ‘rule book’ – the 101 of being a confident woman. When my photography career path brought me to an intersection where my observation of women became the most acute it had ever been, I realised the purpose of all those years of feeling ‘less-than’, of knowing that there must be a way to tap into that inherent confidence. So began a personal journey paralleled by a professional one, woven together with the thread of discovering true feminine confidence.

My hope is that each one of us – us the feminine collective – gives ourselves permission to discover and express our most confident self.

What you don’t know about success, our topic for November 2017 with Chris Van Rooyen.

Probably one of the most documented topics of the modern era is
“How to be successful”.
One cannot pass a bookstore or browse the Internet without crossing the path of some expert waxing away about how to be a success in life, health, business, career, faith, etc. The list is seemingly endless and we are pounded with thousands of hypotheses viewed from multiple perspectives.
Despite this plethora of information we still find the vast majority of people falling significantly short of the success they so ardently set out to achieve. Why?
Where I cannot profess to have all the answers to ‘success’, I have over the years observed three glaring non-negotiable truths that will take you to the pinnacle of any dream you may pursue. But, you may not like these truths. Why? Because they do not offer a quick fix or a smooth ride. But they do offer an absolute guarantee.

Chris van Rooyen
Coach/Facilitator/Speaker/Thinker

I began my career in the Advertising/Marketing Industries. This career channel led me to being Creative Director, Marketing Strategist, specialist in consumer behaviour, Director and Owner of numerous companies from Online Resource Management to Marketing Consulting and Coaching. I am currently the owner of The Business Gym, a Business Training/Coaching initiative.
I am blessed with the Creative Curse. That simply means I cannot look at anything as a static state, but always see things in terms of their possibilities. I see the change potential in just about everything. As Creative Director for numerous International Advertising Agencies my background has led me down a path of thinking differently and thereby identifying how, through simple but dedicated changes, people and situations can be improved dramatically. This aptitude I apply to my work, to the people I deal with and help, to my family life and to my personal life.
I have always had a fascination for the miracles and anomalies that surround human behaviour. We, the human race, are profoundly influenced by our perceptions of life, and in many cases it can affect our very being, resulting in a contented life balance or extreme emotional imbalance. Our response to all things is influenced enormously by our life attitude and it always amazes me how much we can control it to our benefit, or how it can control us to our detriment.

7 Years in a coma. Dr Kobus Du Toit’s story of waking up and uncovering the significance of his story.

WAKING UP”
7 Years in a coma. Dr Kobus Du Toit’s story of waking up and uncovering the significance of his story. ‘
Have you ever booked yourself into a hospital to undergo a life quality improvement procedure with the expectation of a good outcome, only to recover from your ordeal 7 years later?

At the age of 45, I was married for 23 years, the father of 4 children of respectively 9, 11, 12 and 14 and the sole breadwinner of my family of 6. I’d reached the top of the ladder in my career as CEO within a corporate banking group when I entered the hospital on 16 October 2000 with exactly the same expectation of a good outcome, just as you would do.

However, for me things took a turn for the worst and what was supposed to be a life quality improvement procedure turned into a complete disaster which resulted in a dramatic drop in life quality and an intense combat for recovery while I was left without bladder and colon control, a non-functioning prostrate as well as a partly paralyzed right leg and foot.

During the 7 years, I was literally stripped from everything I previously had and nurtured – health, career, income, reserves, assets, marriage, family as well as my human dignity (the aspect that got damaged most), only to learn six valuable lessons.

Equally so, does all of us have a story to tell, although a story only reveals an objective experience – the WHAT (contents) of an experience. Unfortunately, most people are stuck in their objective experience and sadly fail to see the significance of their trauma or discomfort – the WHY behind the what. And this is exactly what my talk is about – to share my experience with audiences to help people to uncover and to understand the significance of their story.
