Social Media for Business: Focus Forward

By Mason Duchatschek

When I was about seven, my parents encouraged me to sign up and run AAU track.  One of the first pieces of coaching I remember from over 30 years ago still applies in the world of social media for business.

What was that advice?  Whenever you’re racing, don’t look back.  My coaches always urged me to run my best race and give everything I had.

If I looked back, then nothing good was likely to happen.  I could break my stride and even half a step could change the outcome of a race.  If my rivals caught me looking backward, they might be tempted to run faster than they might have if they thought I felt strong and wasn’t tiring.  If I looked back and saw that I had it in the bag, then I could get tempted to take it easier than I should.

Speaking as a social media consultant, social media strategist and online marketing speaker, the coaching advice I have to share with you is similar to that which I received as a kid running track for the first time. Don’t look back. Run your race.

When you distribute your internet marketing content and business web videos, always put your best foot forward and work on making your best better.  Focus your attention on sharing ideas and strategies that your ideal customers will value most and don’t dilute that focus to worry about what your rivals are up to.

Let them be concerned about you.  Let them stumble.  Let them back off their pace when they should be pushing, When you catch them looking back, commenting on your ideas or half-heartedly trying to copy them, you’ll know you’re doing it right, and winning.
