A born traveller Nicky Kriel move to the U.K. several years ago from South Africa with nothing more than a backpack. She now considers herself “very settled” in London. Having been raised by a New Zealand mother and a South African father - who met in London - she said traveling has come natural to her. These days Nicky has been traveling the globe to help teach business how they can use social media to increase their sales. With books like How to Twitter for Business Success and Converting Conversations to Customers, Nicky has become the go-to person for businesses looking to leverage social media as a growth tool for their company.

With books like How to Twitter for Business Success and Converting Conversations to Customers, Nicky has become the go-to person for businesses looking to leverage social media as a growth tool for their company. In our podcast Nicky talks about the phenomenal growth social media has seen in the last decade and how she thinks they will change moving forward. She also reveals some secrets for making the top social media platforms - Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn - more fun and engaging. “It is easy enough to build followers and the right followers by putting out the right content and having conversations.

She also reveals some secrets for making the top social media platforms - Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn - more fun and engaging. “It is easy enough to build followers and the right followers by putting out the right content and having conversations. Actually being real,” she advised. Having confessed that she was a late starter on social media, Nicky said social media has become of way of life. “It’s hard to really think that it is only in the last decade that they have existed and there was life before Facebook and Twitter and LinkedIn.” A self-described laggard, she admitted that she has never

A self-described laggard, she admitted that she has never be one to rush out and buy the latest technology but it is something she said has helped her connect with business clients. “I know from my own personal resistance to things where people are, “ she laughed. “There is resistance in terms of getting on social media so it is quite useful to take the approach of understanding where people might be coming from.” Learning to use social media as a marketing tool took her a while, she explained. When she initially tried using Twitter she said she gave up after two days but following a Mari Smith course about the

When she initially tried using Twitter she said she gave up after two days but following a Mari Smith course about the platform she found her calling. “Within a few weeks people were phoning me to ask me about coaching,” Nicky said. “Things just suddenly magically seem to happen.” When it comes to helping others directly or through books, Nicky said that writing a book is not as easy as it sounds. “Yes you can get words on a page but whether somebody wants to read it or not that is another matter.

 

If a book is not readable then there is no point in writing it.” Her latest book has been directed at small businesses to help them use social media marketing tools using a 5-step process. “The whole economy is helped if small businesses grow,” she said. During our cast Nicky offers some tips for businesses looking to promote their service or products online through social media with some simple tools that don’t cost a lot. She has shown people that social media is more about connections with others and how those connections can easily be turned into customers. “Think of people as real people,” she explains. “And make those connections.” In fact, Nicky says she has made connections through social media that may not previously have been possible. “I’ve had conversations with authors of books that I would never have had a chance to speak to and that is incredible that you can just do that.” She also advocates for keeping it simple. “I don’t believe that you teach anything by confusing people. Sometimes things are very simple if you know how they work.” If you want more social media tips for growing your businesses head over to http://kobestarr.io/ Thanks for listening!
