I was recently scrolling through my LinkedIn feed, and quickly remembered why I don’t go on the business platform as much as I used to. There is so much noise, people trying to sell me something, or having one-sided conversations, or posting just for the sake of posting.

This applies to everyday life as well, there just is a lot of noise out there. Instead, let’s think about how we as humans as well as business executives, salespeople, operations, marketing, support staff, (insert your role here 😃), can add value not only in our everyday lives but to our current customers and future customers.

On your social platforms, are you asking engaging questions? Are you sharing ideas/articles that people will really find valuable? If not, try this new approach and see what happens. Give it 90 days. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

The world is a better place when you show compassion, understanding, and most importantly aim to add value.

This concept even extends to your website; are you talking to the website visitor or are you creating an experience and showing the information they really want to see? (the value). Is your value proposition clear? Can the website visitor see themselves living in your community (if you are in senior living) or buying your product or service?

If people always thought first, is what is on my website and what I’m posting to my social networks adding value before posting, I think we would all be in a better place.

Now, in a blog post about adding value and cutting through the noise, I probably should leave you with some value, right?

I’ll leave you with 2 high-value blog posts as well as a thought-provoking quote.

  1.  Ready for another website revamp?  Things to think about before tackling a major website refresh/revamp.
  2. Our Top 5 Favorite Software Tools & Technologies  – It might say for senior living, but all five are great for any field.
  3. Last but not least, an inspirational quote, ‘Change your thoughts and you will change your world.” -Norman Vincent Peale, author of the book The Power of Positive Thinking.

Change Your Thoughts and You Will Change Your World
