41. New to Social Media Management? Here's What You Should Focus on

One question that we always get is "What do I focus on if I’m new? How do I build trust with people so they want to work with me? Do I have to “fake it til I make it?!" The phrase “fake it til you make it” has been around for a long time, and it’s often used as advice for people who are trying to achieve their goals. The idea behind this phrase is that if you act as if you already have achieved your goals, you’ll eventually become that person. However, the problem with this approach is that it can lead to imposter syndrome and a lack of authenticity. If you are NEW to social media management, we suggest that you focus on these five things.

06. Angelica Ross on Pivoting Her Business to Become a Persuasive Copywriter

Are you allowed to pivot your business? Maybe you're wondering if there is the "right" time to pivot in your business. In this episode of The Hashtag Managed podcast, I'm sitting down with Angelica Ross to talk about how she pivoted from a social media manager into a persuasive copywriter. There wasn't a massive pivot in her business, but many small, strategic pivots that led to where she is today in business. Today, she is a persuasive copywriter for creative entrepreneurs and coaches. We're diving into how everyone can be a great writer (even if you don't think you are!), how practice makes you a better writer for your sales pages and marketing materials, and her signature PBR Method (what is the problem, what are the benefits and what is the result) to help you write any sales copy for your business. Learn the strategies firsthand from a persuasive copywriter to get rid of the blinking cursor on your Google Doc. Meet Angelica Ross Angelica Ross is a copywriter for creative entrepreneurs and coaches. She is the founder of Angelica Ross Copywriting and Untitled Self-Discovery and Journaling Cards. Angelica specializes in writing website copy that helps bold, brazen, change-making entrepreneurs tell their story and write content that’s true and powerful. Through writing for and coaching countless clients, she’s seen firsthand how sharing the right word at the right time can make a true connection with your audience. When she’s not wrangling words for clients, Angelica can be found with her nose in a book, counting her endless supply of Post Its, and indulging her dog in belly rubs. She believes in the power of a new notebook, the healing properties of cinnamon rolls, and that she’s four people according to the serving size of most recipes.

05. Carly Merryweather on Being a Digital Nomad Living in Bali & the Evolution of Her Online Business

Are you setting up your business intentionally? In this episode of the Hashtag Managed podcast, I'm joined with Carly Merryweather to talk about her journey and the evolution of her business —  from starting out as a social media manager to living in Bali to where her business is headed. Carly's goal in becoming a VA is to have more freedom with her schedule and her life. She's missed way too many farmers markets, festivals and pints with friends from having to work a traditional job. She has been virtual assisting since 2019 and has fallen in love with the craft. Carly never saw herself as an entrepreneur and would always follow the herd growing up. After moving out in 2017 and -as cliche as it sounds- falling in love with traveling, Carly searched for a way to be able to travel sustainability. She wanted to find a way to work online, and be able to make decent money while traveling, without having to post her face all over the internet. She wanted a way where she could travel without the usual routine of saving up money for months, take as much time off work as she could, travel until she had $0, come home, rinse, repeat. She wanted something where she could take her years of customer service experience and make money wherever she wanted to. Meet Carly Merryweather Carly is the founder of Carlyita Co. Carly helps creative entrepreneurs to feel empowered in their business by unleashing their full potential and creating a sustainable, potent business.
