For day 28, I posted on Facebook asking if I can help sell or market a product. In return, I only wanted snacks.
In response, I got a few proposals:
- Marketing a comedy show
- Social media marketing for a ceramics artist
- Selling Arbonne products
- Affiliate program platforms
- A few other people said to DM them, but I haven’t heard back
At this time, I haven’t finalized who I’ll be helping. I still need to follow up.
The challenge opened up opportunities for me. I got in contact with interesting people: Makers and shakers who have something to sell. People like this inspire me.
I’ll have to post a follow up in a few days.
What I Learned
Leverage your social media contacts. Stop using social media to distract you and complain. Instead, use it to create opportunities. Ask. Ask. Ask. Moreover, offer value (ex: working for only snacks) and it becomes mutually beneficial.
Imagine if we only used social media to exchange value. Indeed, that’s true community.
