It’s scary to start something new, but a year ago, that’s exactly what Madalyn Sklar did. She was well known in the music industry, but then decided to do a pivot and use the social media skills she had developed to break into something even more competitive.
Clearly, she is doing something right. She’s recently been named one of the 50 Must-Follow Women Entrepreneurs in 2017 in the Huffington Post.
Get this. She didn’t go looking for the nod. The writers were likely following her on Twitter.
Take a listen and you’ll learn how Madalyn has used social media, in particular Twitter, to expand her reach. She outlines exactly what WE need to do to master Twitter and make it work for our businesses.
By the way, as a result of this chat, I re-did my Twitter bio and created a Twitter list for the guests I have had the pleasure of interviewing on STANDOUT. You can find me on Twitter @CherylTan.
