Can you relate? You’re ready to update your social media while trying to tap into a higher power to give you inspiration of what to write.

And yet, nothing happens.

Your fingers start bouncing up and down on the keys hoping that the little salsa number your fingers are doing on the keyboard will somehow give you the inspiration you are looking for ─ Something witty and smart to post on social media.

It really is no different than talking to your customer. When the customer walks through your door, you automatically know what to say.  Your social media should have the same flow as if you were talking to that customer in person.
