I'm a "digital native", and setting up an Instagram account wasn't that hard, so why bother catching up on social media marketing? It's intuitive, and easy right? Week one of our IndieGogo campaign is complete and I'm learning that successfully navigating social media outlets is a lot harder than it looks. Not only was I naive enough to think I could get away with running this campaign without jumping on the Twitter bandwagon, I also hoped I could just put all of the work in to the website and campaign video and then the thing would just sell itself. Alas, it's not so simple.
All things considered, things are going well! We made it to (nearly!) 25% of our goal in the first week, which is a pretty solid start. Now we're facing a second week slump in which the hard work of engaging new followers begins! After a quick tutorial from MomThisIsHowTwitterWorks.com, and a lot of hapless googling of things like "How to Reddit" I'm slowly catching on. #hopeweektwogoesbetter #I'dreallyrathernotbeontwitter #what'ssobadaboutspacesbetweenwords?
