But first, 18 thousand followers on TikTok.
While I will be heading to Canada on the 10th of October, I have a few updates. For one, I have reached 18 thousand plus followers on TikTok. While this alone means nothing, once put into context it means a lot.
After a month on TikTok, I realized the power and the lack of power of social media. I gained a lot of followers who followed me for several reasons. One I am a foreigner speaking the local language. Two I am helping small businesses and the third is that I am a bit unique because I understand the culture.
For now, I have been overwhelmed by the number of people reaching out to me. Currently, it is about 400 and rising. I have scrambled to put together a small team to help with all this and it had not been easy. Now we have begun contacting everyone and this is where the business end of all this will start.
The team will slowly begin separating the information and where the individual needs help. I know this will get very confusing, frustrating, and maybe even ugly.
We will not know until we dive into it. So far my experience has been that the lack of knowledge from small business owners is evident.
What they do not know.
This is not a lack of enthusiasm but the lack of understanding of the world wide web and the culture on social media. Hell, very knowledgeable people are often dumbfounded and miss the boat on ideas. How can a local farmer or a local person in a village understand how to market a store or a product? I would consider myself experienced and knowledgeable on many things but I didn’t know what to expect when I dove into the world of TikTok. So there you go. We are off to the races and hopefully, we will emerge as helpful, understanding, and kind. Hope we will be able to help people and figure out the small mess I got myself into.
I was not prepared.
As I said, I thought I was somewhat intelligent but when the unexpected hits well, one cannot be prepared for everything. Looking back I should have had a whole team on standby and sitting by the phones ready to take calls.
The weekend I launched my TikTok I spent the entire weekend on the couch answering messages. Then each time I went live I did the same because of the sheer number of followers.
If I was getting paid for all this, I would have made some money. I am not, yet anyway. So far I made a total of $18 for all my efforts and that is in the way of prizes. I cannot retire on that.
