  • Practical Tips for Growing Your Social Media Presence

    30 MAY. 2024 · Welcome back to Song 43.  Last week, I hosted eleven amazing creators in Chicago. We hung out, learned from each other, and had a blast at the Shure headquarters. James from Wet Nose Woodworks – shout-out to you! You asked for tips on beating the algorithm, and Chris Stone from Dealcasters shared some gold. I also had an incredible time at Reel Sounds studio in Skokie. We re-worked my song "Oak Tree" with a new feel and recorded “Not Responsible” in one take! Everything came together so smoothly, and Sean had it out on YouTube in no time. Check it out at https://www.youtube.com/shorts/ngoX3dz6Kcw After all that, it was back to mom mode. Blake turned ten, and we celebrated big-time over Memorial Day weekend. It was totally exhausting, but totally worth it. If you have content creation questions, I’m here. Hit me up anytime! That’s it for today. Thanks for listening, have an awesome week, and keep creating. Catch you later!

A large chunk of this episode is devoted to discussing the struggles and strategies of keeping a small business visible on platforms like Instagram, a challenge brought up by my good friend James from Wet Nose Woodworks. As I venture to Chicago next week to meet some top-tier influencers and content creators, I plan to gather insider tips on mastering the algorithm which could help small businesses shine. On a personal note, I share experiences from my niece’s school concert – a proud but technically fraught event, dinner adventures post-show, and the everyday juggle of tasks that fill up life’s to-do list. Plus, I touch upon the transition back into music-making, including an upcoming collaboration with influencer Sean Daniel, and a peek into upcoming performances and studio sessions. Throughout the episode, I open up about the pressures of multi-faceted responsibilities, the physical and mental toll they take, and the ever-elusive search for additional 'time’. Ending on a personal note, I share my song "Here We Are," penned around the tumultuous times of political upheaval, aiming to offer a piece of solace amid the ongoing chaos. Whether you’re from nearby or tuning in from miles away, this episode is crafted to connect, resonate and hopefully add a little extra music to your day.
