About this event
For most people, social media is a great way to learn new things, catch up on news, connect with people from around the world, and keep tabs on family members and those people you haven’t seen since high school. But for social media managers and marketing professionals it can be downright overwhelming and toxic. It takes a lot to field angry comments, answer questions, pay attention to social listening – – and we haven’t even talked about actual content creation yet! Add in the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing events of the racial justice movement, the harsh political climate, and social media can be an unhealthy place to be if you don’t have solid self-care practices and boundaries in place.
In this presentation from Mel Ripp from Peapod Marketing & PR Consulting, she’ll offer strategies for how to best take care of yourself when being online is your job, including:
- Learn how to protect your mental health with some valuable social media perspective shifts.
- Gain insights on establishing physical and mental boundaries for your social media use.
- Get tips on performing regular audits of your personal and professional accounts.
- Find ways to celebrate more of your social media wins among the noise.
