Mindset Digital Social Media Training Podcast

Today, it’s easy to put your message out there…but how do you get people to tune in?

In our Building an Audience series, we’ll look at how real (non-celebrity) people have built a robust audience on social media, and how it benefits their professional careers.

This  episode features Mindset Digital’s Mike Taylor, who has grown a healthy audience of seven thousand followers on Twitter. How did he do it? Using his personal method of “working smarter, not harder.”  Plus, we talk about how to determine who’s in – and should be in – your audience, and a new intern takes up the challenge of finding something on the internet guaranteed to make you laugh…

All this, plus some wise words about ferrets.  It’s Episode 7, and it is awesome.
