You’ll need to create the space to show up consistently for your audience.
We all have a lot going on in our lives. Whether that’s related to work, family, hobbies or other commitments, creating the space to share your journey with your audience can be deprioritized as a result. When this happens over a long period of time, you lose all momentum with building your online presence. Getting back on track after this can be extremely difficult. However, this situation can be prevented when you actively create the space needed to show up consistently. Chris Hladczuk, who has a large following on linkedIn and twitter shared a few ideas with us during our fireside chat with him.
Spend some time during the weekend writing and creating various posts for your upcoming week
Keep notes about your day and share relevant parts of it with your audience
Showing up online as your authentic self makes it easier to keep going
Your momentum will slow down if you don’t take care of your mental health
The state of your mental health affects your ability to build your online presence over time. At times, there are days when you don’t even feel like looking at a screen or have nothing interesting to share with your audience. During such times, it’s important to remember that taking a break for a day or two might actually be more helpful than trying to push yourself to post online.
If you’ve already built your muscle memory before then, you’ll automatically have the edge to put something out there for your audience. If not, it’s okay to take some time off to gather some inspiration. Make sure to set a date when you’d be returning to your regularly scheduled cadence.
