Social Media for Small Business

Social Media for Small Business

As a small business owner, it’s tough trying to come up with things to talk about daily. It’s even harder trying to come up with conversation starters to get people to notice your business over the noise on social media.

There’s always so much to talk about, but only so little can be said in opening.  That’s the hard part.  Finding the balance of blathering on about a topic, finding the right opener for people to jump onboard and get the conversation rolling.  It feels like walking on a slackline; it’s unstable and the balance is a lot of guess work.

Social media is like a giant hall, filled with music, people, and a place where everyone is trying to be heard all at once.  For someone just getting cracking, it’s both awe inspiring and nightmarish.  Twitter alone reminds me of a room full of sugared up toddlers, each hell bent on getting your attention one way or another. 

I’m not trying to rattle all social media with a level of cartoonish glare.  I’m trying to open conversations.  Whether they be about the Energy industry, awesome ways to film in the air, or about the startup drone idea living in your head. 

I’m looking to use my knowledge to help people and the environment.  Which gives me a lot to talk about, if your willing to jump onboard to have a conversation.

Digital Consulting

After years of working for the companies that used complicated systems, being in the military, and going freelance, Leigh & I are taking the next cosmic step with Atomic Dumpling.  We’ve opened our doors to creating a consultancy of our own.

Needing an advise, project manager, or a killer team of people helping you doesn’t need to be a guessing game anymore.  I feel great about making the decision to take the next step in my career by starting my own company.  I know I have the experience and the understanding to bump things up and make some magic happen.

Running a business is a complicated process. There’s a level of understanding that needs to be in place in order to operate successfully.  Understanding outcomes for the expected project is only a small piece of the puzzle.

That’s why we’re starting a consulting company. Our goals are fairly simple really. We want to help people expand their footprint, their digital foot print. Business is hard. But, with the team we’re growing, we’re going to make things easier.
