Please tell us about your company.
Social Proof Agency is a Social Media Marketing Agency where we help clients to build their Online Presence, Branding, Content, Consulting, Advertisement, and Management.
I recently started my Personal Brand because I want to get in more contact with people and want to go in the motivational Niche and helping people in their life. Next year when things will be getting better, we will do Workshops in Bali.
What's your most memorable experience?
I worked for a 5 Star Hospitality Company, and my team had 220 employees. We had very bad ratings and results because there was a poisoned work environment and micromanagement.
I was able to change that with my team, and we became the best Hotel in the company and several Awards at the end. Can't mention the name here, sorry.
Which social media channels work best for promoting your work? What exactly do you do on the social media channel that makes it work for you?
In our agency, we use all social media channels like Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Linkedin, Twitter, Youtube. This always depends on the client's needs.
What's your greatest fear?
That I have to do a job I don't like! To lose my girlfriend, who always supports me. I would not be there if she would not have got my back.
Looking back, what's one thing you wish you understood better before you ever got started?
A mentor is important, if I had a mentor back in the days, it would be so much less pain and struggle and would have also saved from wasting money…
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
Believing in my work and being myself. My Strategy is Consistency and Positive work environment.
What keeps you going when things get tough?
I see problems as challenges. When things get tough, I feel inspired to make the best out of it. Even we think its the worst, there are still opportunities. I put myself on a regular base into the situation of learning something new to get me out of my comfort zone.
Any message for our readers.
Do something you Love! If you do something, you don't like its called stress; if you do something you love, it is called passion.
If you have a passion for something, it does not feel that you are working; it will not drain your energy.
