Overwhelmed by TikTok, support and kindness.

Overwhelmed.

There I was, after a month of deliberation, posting on TikTok. Being blown away by the results. I did a few videos as a trial and then I posted a video of what I truly wanted to use TikTok for.

As I mentioned in a previous blog, it was to help and promote small businesses in Bali. My video is now nearing 70,000 views and thousands of messages. So many people are reaching out for help and nearly all of them are missing huge opportunities. 

They all lack the get-go or confidence to create their own free social media accounts. I am not sure how and I do not understand all this yet. 

Free tools.

Free tools such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Google sites are  under-utilized. The basic argument is, “I am a village person.” I do not know how to do this. There is a small amount of truth to it. Yet if they search on Google they would know. That is the problem, they do not know, no one has told them and they do not know what they do not know. 

You don’t know what you don’t know. 

I am spending hours on end now talking to individuals on various platforms such as WhatsApp, Instagram, and TikTok, it is simply amazing.

The next steps.

The next steps will be to put together packages and show them how to create and use these free and simple marketing tools. This is where the business end of the plan will come into place. 

Much of the marketing I will be doing for free. Much of this will be a simple process to guide the locals. The bigger step will be to take on larger accounts that can afford to pay for site visits and advertising. All the while, I continue to gather data and phone numbers from the locals.

The big step I am hoping to achieve is that in the future I may be able to use my website as a portal for eCommerce. To have a place to put all the products and links on my website. 

How do we benefit?

We will all benefit from a community of small businesses. We can all be the little guys banding together for a common cause. Follow each other and support each other. 

I am unsure if my plan will come true. For now, I am sure of this. I can make a difference in the lives of these people as a foreigner in Bali. This far, the support has been overwhelming and I hope the trend continues. 

However, I am a little concerned about people following up. Like many people, these small businesses are excited and ready to go. I am unsure if they will follow up and keep their end of the bargain by posting and creating content to keep going.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
