How to Use Social Media to Land More Gigs

With Jon Acuff

Social media is part of our everyday lives, and it can be an effective business tool. But do you know how to use social media to land more gigs, while still being the real you? Our guest, Jon Acuff, does and he’ll explain how in episode 167 of The Speaker Lab.

When Jon isn’t speaking or writing best-selling books, including his latest book Finish, he is actively sharing his work and his life on social media.

Today we talk about how his social media platform and his online content have helped his business grow, plus the various strategies for each of his platforms. We also talk about how and why he learns about speaking from comedians, as well as the hows and whys of goal-setting for speakers. Join Jon and I as we explore these topics and more on the latest edition of The Speaker Lab!

THE FINER DETAILS OF THIS SHOW:

  • What’s the fastest way to get feedback?
