Social media gets a bad press.
Twitter, particularly so.
But with all the huff and puff around social media, it does have some huge positives.
One of those is getting to connect with interesting people.
And also, discovering that there are very nice people out there in the world who are genuine, kind and supportive.
Of course, it’s a bit weird to connect with people and never meet. I get that.
But with me talking at various conferences and speaking events these days, I’m actually getting to physcially meet more and more of the people I connect with online.
That’s really cool.
In fact, this latest episode of The All Good Copy Podcast is with two people who I met online initially but then got the chance to meet in person when I was doing a talk up in Edinburgh.
We caught up for some drinks after my gig and had a great time chatting about copywriting, marketing and countless other things we happened to have in common.
So, following that meeting, it’s my pleasure to have them both on the podcast.
It’s a great listen – especially if you’re at the beginning of your copywriting career. But there’s also some great advice on having your own website and how to manage your time as a copywriter.
I hope you enjoy it, and please be sure to share it if you do.
