Why There is No “Right Time”
Last week I did an Instagram live with Melanie Lippman where we chatted about everything that’s going on in this world, the importance of it all and how it doesn’t really have an end date.
So what does that mean for business owners? Does that mean as a business we need to pause? Or be living in the fear that people might unsubscribe or unfollow us?
We talked about those questions and what it really feels like as a business owner to have people who decide to unsubscribe, unfollow, and honestly, it happens all the time. Despite what’s going on in the world right now, things could be seemingly perfect and you’d still have people unsubscribe and unfollow. The clearer you get with your messaging, people WILL unsubscribe and unfollow anyway.
If you’ve been using the current events as an excuse to say “it’s not the right moment for me to be sending out emails or campaigning,” you’ve been exposed. Listen, I get it. BUT there isn’t really going to be a “right moment” for a long time, just like there’s never a “perfect moment” to launch a business.
None of these things that are going on in the world are going away. They are shifting our culture. So for you to be able to stand up and speak in this moment and feel good about it and know, yes people might be unsubscribing from my list or because of what I said, those were never the people that were going to buy from you anyways. I promise you that.
So during this time, the real question should be, what are you sharing? What are you launching? What are you doing to reach your audience? Let me know in the comments.
