4. E-nnouncements – You do awesome things, share them!
The “how to’s” of writing a compelling e-nnouncement is important. Here are some tips to follow in order to make sure that you’re e-nnoucement is perfect!
Your e-nnouncement can only include 1 attachment. It’s important to pick one file, photo, or video that creates the BEST representation of what you’re e-nnouncing. Your attachment by itself already says a lot, just add good short description to it. If you don’t have an image, you can write an e-nnoucement with a longer description. But always go right to the point, sharing your recent accomplishment or progress update. Ask for advice if you need it! Your Followers are there to give you feedback and will enjoy helping you along the way.
