13: ADHD and social media: staying visible!

Being visible on social media every day is important for business owners! But it can be a grind for ADHD entrepreneurs!

"And it's also super challenging for us when we're trying to build a consistent visibility calendar on social media because talking about our businesses is super exciting in the beginning, and then it gets old and stale!" - Katie McManus, Brave Business Coaching


Look, we all know we need to be more visible and consistently showing up on social media if we want to grow our businesses, right?

But it's not always easy for entrepreneurs with ADHD who may get bored talking about the same thing all the time.

It's important to remember that variety is important for those with ADHD in both hobbies and relationships.

While it's necessary to make people aware of what your business does, it's not the only thing you should talk about on social media.

And you absolutely should ignore those people on LinkedIn who tell you "this isn't Facebook!" anytime you post something personal.

Why it's so damned important to fly your freak flag on LinkedIn and other platforms!

Sharing your interests and obsessions with your audience can give them a more well-rounded view of who you are and make your content more engaging.

After all, we're not all about work all the time in the real world, are we? 

(I mean some of us might be. But everybody needs a little down time now and then!)

It's okay to show your personality and share things about your life on social media as long as it's relevant to your business in some way.

As I explain in this episode, it can be really helpful to think back to when you were a child and the ways you would connect with your new friends and show off the things you were interested in.

If you do that, you can get ideas for how to share your interests on social media.
