Grant Cardone on Social Media BIG PICTURE: Are you using social media or is social media using you?
Think on this. Is your activity on social media proactive or reactive? And while this is also a massive life lesson (you want to be proactive) you really want to lead from the front when it comes to your social media.
When you hit Twitter or Facebook, do you scroll or post? What would happen to your entire social media experience if you made it a rule to post before you scroll? And when you catch yourself scrolling, make sure you ask yourself, am I using social media right now or is social media using me?

Grant Cardone On Social Media Tip 1: Ask questions
If you study Grant at all you may have heard him of one of us say something to the effect of questions control the cycle. One of the first lessons I learned from Grant was, “selling is a conversation and power comes from the words that you use.” Asking open ended questions gets the conversation especially when you solicit the one thing everyone has on social media; their opinion.
After all, this is the social part of social media. Start the conversation. Ask questions that get people thinking, engaged and talking.
Grant Cardone On Social Media Tip 2: Have an opinion
So, you’re using social media now, not being used by it. You’re asking questions and stimulating positive discussion. People are engaged. You’re a player now, not a spectator.
Next, remember, you have a certain set of beliefs about life. You are unique and you have value. If you don’t think you do, probably need to get that one handled first, but the bottom line here is on social media, it’s OK to have an opinion and it’s also OK that people may not always agree with you.
It’s more important to have an opinion and to be certain. Just like Grant says in the video…
If I have a wrong piece of data that I’m stable on, I’m probably going to be more effective than a right piece of data that I’m unsure about.“
Grant Cardone On Social Media Tip 3: Show activity
Outflow is senior to inflow. You’re using social media to promote you, your brand and your business. Make sure people know what you’re doing and because seeing is believing, you need to show the activity and action you’re taking. Show people what’s going on, almost from an insider’s perspective. And that’s not just for you. You want the competition to know you’re taking massive action, that you’re making things happen. Remember, player not spectator.
