Why Social Media is a striving business and what’s does this mean to you

See the reason’s why you can do it ,not why you can’t

Clearly we as human race we have become a products of internet companies like Facebook and twitter and this is not going to change anytime soon. Because this applications are addictive and build with a help of professionals who have degrees in human nature has got us hooked. Building a business based on this platform is a real risk although worth taking but in a long run you not in control of your business future if this social Medias change their algorithms so you are at their mercy. I experienced this personally while pushing my music links on Facebook and they constantly block my posts thinking I am a spam or just stopping me on my tracks because when I do it organic they don’t get anything except me driving their audience to the websites where I put my music and they don’t want that’s.

Because we can advertise on them

Google is an incredible tool , YouTube too ,Vk Facebook and twitter and not to mention Messaging apps like What’s app , Telegram , viper and many more the problem is we get distracted every moment we try to focus in an important things in life and under deliver compare to our potential. The more we stay online the more ads are portrayed in front of us by companies and our favorite’scelebrities and thus effect our spending decision.

The problem with this is when we get on social media we normally want to socialize and have fun and engage with people we know and don’t know. Others come to seek dates and if we wanted to buy something we would’ve gone to Alabama or amazon apps but as human being marketing makes us realize things we might want but not actually need.

Early this morning I was on twitter and I saw a guy posting a car and that’s wasn’t even an ad but seeing comments and how he got attention makes me think of having a car myself so of Couse this platforms will strive even if they bring the worst in us, envious and jealousy .The goal of this article is for us to reduce social media usage and realize it’s not a just time costs it’s also a bad habit if it doesn’t affect your bottom line positively.

It’s a risky bet

Marketing is now starting to be seen like a social media job but that’s cannot be far from the truth. But marketing and distribution are independent industry apart from what’s is happening in the internet it’s just another feature. So trying to be a DYI and promote everything you are doing on the internet is not effective especially on social media.

The outside world is still a good marketing platform also depending on your product and service. Other thing is when you try to do an internet based business you may lack a skill of a sales person which is also required here ,the handling of objections ,follow ups and closing your clients and disadvantages here people have all the time to look at your offer objectively or logically unless what’s you are serving is a need or essential like food and transport which have its own apps now and you don’t need to be in social networks to get it.

As you promote your business in this platforms ,you making this platforms more profitable and that’s is fine if you do it intentionally like boosting your ad or page other than drifting on groups and being blocked now and again.

You are a product to social media

Social media has lost its value as it did when we started using it back in 2009 and new ones like Tiktok you should be careful getting hooked on them the usage is expensive because its requires video and audio data. We are no longer getting the endorphins we use to get and like aluxer confirms it’s now just a bad habit we have and we might need to crush it once and for all and get back to our old ways more and socialize better apart from pandemics messing with us.

Realizing you are being volunteer used by this companies should be a wakeup call and check where you are lacking because of it and see actions that’s you take because of it. This messes with your phycology and its influences how you deal with people because you do things that’s you wouldn’t do in person unless you are a socio path.

Spread of information and wrong myths

Covid 19 has to have trusted sources of information from the bunch because people were saying whatever about this pandemic and really lying to one another. Social media has become some source of information. The Qoura and Pinterest as well as Tumbler is strictly for interesting information and adding LinkedIn offers jobs and talk about business and important skills like sales and so on.

But this platforms hasn’t made our lives easier the only thing I see are premiums to be in a certain position or bombarded by a lot of information that’s doesn’t collate to the real world and in disorganized manner we end up reading books online without us being aware and reading things that’s doesn’t impact our lives at all. If you could start reading a book with the time you spend online you can have a breakthrough in a certain place in your life or listen to an audiobook.

Myth and beliefs are being spread here and we end up reading peoples mindset as well, because when people type something becomes the reflection of who we think they are. We don’t think the post is calculated or represent something else ,that’s why other people have fake accounts and attack other people and others have alter egos and spend their days promoting that’s and wonder why they don’t reach their goals and forget they spend most of their mental effort on being something they’re not .

If you are in that’s trap you can do something about it. Meditate on this article and try to ground yourself in internet usage and really come back to the real world. You will find yourself being productive and thus see the ROT (return on time) and eventually ROI (return on investment)

Its means you need a gateway times from social media and engage in a real world

I was listening to Ready Player one audio book which I enjoy , it’s a gick tech guy acting in a future 2041 where the AI is a thing and its shows the amplified life of social media where people will spend their lives as parallel people having an online avatar which is a representation of yourself .

who has money and most of things that’s ordinary person can have but the difference online life will be a game but like social media now ads will still be a part of a culture and well as influencers and brand ambassadors will be there. With that’s said its means being online by then will also be lucrative because points people will be getting online could be converted to real life like bitcon.

You could be rich online as an avatar and be poor in a real world. So this means for this generation we may embrace part of internet and its perks but we need to be weary of everything around it. Position yourself on social media to be not a narcissist that’s won’t help you in anyway and try to live a life with a meaning and teach your kids basics and you going to leave them in a different world but the principles won’t change and values you would’vetaught them will be everything.

To you it’s also mean’s stop checking social proof and being narcissist and a pure consumer

Avoid looking what’s everybody is doing and cultivate your own ways ,because if something is done by everyone its means it’s easy and most of the time not worth it now and in the long run and that’s social proof and I have talked about it in another article.

Your pride lead you to want to splurge on social media and show people you don’t know how good you are doing. Sometimes this may come from a place of void and incompleteness from your accomplishment and want unnecessary attention and social media can offer that’s. Think before you do, make that’s your mantra I don’t know how many posts I didn’t post because I started by thinking how what’s I want to say is going to make sense to other person.

I know a friend who quite Facebook and for him it was a good move because he was a pure consumer, he realized he wasn’t like other people and didn’t like to brag about himself or comment so he was just consuming every unnecessary data that’s came across his feed, so he decided to stop.

Other go online to laugh and have fun and others are browsing and other seek sexual content whatever your reasons do it intentionally and don t be a consumer because its might not be a valuable way to spend your time unless you have joined the right motivational groups or aligned with your real life industry.

Thanks for reading todays article and I want to say, this are big companies and they can sue me for attacking them but disclaimer is in place this view are mine and not in attack to this companies but as a user it’s how I feel and somehow complaining because I have been blocked because I was pushing my music while other’s posts dangerous sexual content and get away with it.

I may sound like bragging and being a naysayer I’m just sharing to my followers that’s we can have a better life even if we are not attached to social media.

  • 1 If you have a dope beat you won’t experience writers block.

You cannot, I repeat you cannot play a dope beat and don’t vibe with it or sing along like you watching TV no, if I send you a beat play it in a place where you can jot out some flows and ideas. When we did Wamnandi and other songs the person writes the moment he get a beat while it’s still hot and after that switch off the beat till you hit the studio and hear it fresh again. Don’t play a beat over and over again while chilling you really messing it up. That a simple strategy and before we get to the next point go down and comment how you fight this bad thing of loosing inspiration? We will interact with you and do a follow up videos on this topic.

  • 2 Picture yourself in a stage performing.

This might be the best strategy to do a hit let alone writing a song…this what’s we usually do, although this happens by mistake but we manage to pick it up. Makhula will say in stage we will be moving like this , then while I’m watching a move idea will pop up and maybe say hey that a snake dance the way you move hands back and fourth . Depending on a beat we vibing to we can say snake dance over and over adding some lyrics .You just have to embrace your creativity.

3 Don’t write every day.

Depending on a genre you don’t want to write every day, make yourself miss writing to a point when you pick up a pen it’s just flows because you just came from experiencing life. Here is another key as artists we tend to don’t know our target market, like who we do music for and why they love it which makes us fall to a trap of ever changing industry and make us want to follow the hot thing, there is nothing wrong with that. What’s we have done we focused on what’s can make people dance its can be Kwaito, House, Amapiano you name it above 100bmp tempo. But as some of you know I come from hip hop space some of you don’t know this but there is real hip hop out there that can make you dance not just move your heard or dab but we couldn’t go there because of two much complexity for SA general audience that why we have kept our style light and easy to consume but this point I’m trying to tell artists figure your

4 Have a source of inspiration.

When we all start we have a natural eager to keep writing but that end up dissipating and we need some boost to write. I remember I started by writing stories that worked infact it can still work I just saw that the way I putted them its was lame and that time Kasi rap needed real creativity. I learnt to do Kasi Rap then I learn to write in syllables which 80% of artists cant because its requires lot of practice and understanding of how words can rhyme without closing at a certain point but catch a fan of guard the way you hold breadth and with this skill alone I always kill a crowd and that made me feel good but I didn’t make money so I had to stop for more about that check out our other video called why artists don’t make money. It’s not that they cannot write but yourl see why and tell us if you disagree cause we trying to have a open discussion here loll we not ainstan of music or Edison of it we regular soon to be superstar musicians who are fascinated by industry as a whole. Back to the point, watch a movie to get inspired you don’t have to finish it , read a dope book finish it ,look at your favorite artist and tell yourself in a positive way I want to be in that position then switch off all that and take a pen and write .Avoid listening to much of the music you are doing get inspired not influenced that way you will be original.

  • 5 Don’t write create songs.

What’s do we mean listen if you really want to be a big artist you need to be able to do this , Abdu’s creates Punch lines he doesn’t use or modify others like most artists do , Makhula has that too he is so original that I asked him how do you get this flows of yours cause in Kwaito  many replicate Mampintsha and even though its not something that is talked about its really hurts the industry , English rappers copy Nasty c or someone from USA .so if you create from the scratch people will get used to your scratch and actually supports you until you have your mini you’s as well loll. You guys are so amazing the feedback we are getting ever since we started this content we like to take this time and say thank you. I see others want us to come to their shows and ask us how much we charge for a event before this episode end we going to leave our manager number Nkule please strictly music related business..or send us an email at ulwaznomakhula@gmail.com… Now lets give you that bonus shall we?

  • 6 Don’t give up.

In fact in everything you trying to do don’t give up that easily and say you will try tomorrow that will be your bad habit and its will kill your career , get away from friends and any distructions and try to avoid writing at the studio you waste everybodys time.Once you told yourself you will write get to it , Makhula find it easy to write as this genre is all he knows but sometimes he had those days where I need to chip in and help. In  Most cases ULwaz has the problem of writing now lets me make some other point for me its not that I ddnt write but its trusting what’s I have wrote that was a real challenge when I started qgom but my friends encouraged me and I was always on the second verse because of that , So you need that encouragement as well from your producer or your  group because this is for all your best interest and if   someone bites a mainstream artist tell him / her to stop because you will all look like fraud.

Once again thanks for tuning in we will see you on the next article. As we have putted it for you ,or go to write that song and thank us later . #LnM we out…
