023 – Create FOMO for yourself: how to increase your workshop’s visibility – with May King Tsang

    In this episode, I talk to May King Tsang, a social media FOMO (“fear of missing out”) creator and professional live tweeter: @MayKingTEA May King joined a live event I organised a day before recording the interview so that I could have first-hand insights on how she works and how FOMO works. In the show, we talk about how May King created visibility for a small and intimate event on social media.

    In the show, May King shares the steps she took to create visibility: before, during and even after the event. She explains the key differences between the major platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook and how we can use the algorithms to our advantage.

    Don’t miss the part when May King explains why she doesn’t directly refer to the event she creates FOMO for in her very first social media posts. And what she did to help me to increase my number of followers on Instagram by 6% and by 35% on Twitter without me even using my phone.
