21. Unfiltered Social Media (Part 1)

In today’s energetic, entertaining and enlightening episode, I’ll be talking all things business and social media with the human version of the ‘100’ emoji – Mr Lewis Kemp.

Lewis is CEO of Lightbulb Media, a results-driven digital marketing agency who take a no-nonsense approach to getting SME’s in front of their ideal customers.  They help good people doing good work to shout louder about what they’re doing and be seen by the right people.

He’s a massive advocate of authenticity online and educates people around the platforms so that they can benefit on both a professional and personal level.

Both Lewis and myself have spent a lot of time developing our personal brands on Linked In and now deliver training to help other people increase their knowledge, understanding and confidence in using it [More information on our training here. ]

Through talking with our workshop attendees, we’ve noticed a worrying trend among them; they are too scared to post on Linked In!

So, we wanted to sit down and talk about the platform and our recommendations for using it because we’ve realised that learning how to communicate well online has benefits far beyond the confines of the platform.

He also speaks candidly about his personal experience of discussing his mental health online in a post that went viral and how this affected his wellbeing.

Whether you use social media or not, Lewis delivers a ton of valuable life advice that we can all benefit from:

– being unapologetically yourself

– bringing more of yourself to your work

– having confidence in who you are and learning to communicate it effectively

– building yourself up as a new business owner and standing your ground against naysayers, bad clients and critics

– managing imposter syndrome, self-doubt and anxiety
