Listen On: Apple Podcasts | Spotify

In this episode we take you BTS of what a live strategy session looks like in The SXS Academy, with webinar attendee Liz. We were so thrilled that Liz decided to join us as a 103 member of The Academy, during the webinar! At the end of our April webinar (Networking, Pitching & Collaboration 101) we gave one attendee the opportunity to participate in a live strategy session where we completed a social media & site review. During these sessions, we take a deep dive into your mission statement, vision and goals for your brand, and provide suggestions to bring clarity and direction.



We dive into: 

Optimizing your IG bio & the importance in adding a CTA
Creating a solid mission statement.
How to convey your mission statement & purpose on your IG and website
