How to engage your audience on line so you can grow your business.

What is the Psychology of Social Media?

With social media a cornerstone of a business' marketing an edge on how to engage more customers online is critical. 

Create engaging content

Anyone can post online but when platforms employ psychologists to keep people there, you'll want to know what they do.

Grow strong relationships

People buy from businesses they know, like, & trust. Understand how to create that for your business.

Motivate your fans to buy

In the end, you want to motivate your fans to take action. What motivates us is based in our psychology.

Why should you deal with it?

In our fast-paced lives, capturing attention and driving action is key to a long-lasting business. Understanding how to do that on social media is vital these days. I know this because I've been helping business do this for over a decade.

Too often we feel that when we post on our social media we're talking to ourselves. Or worse, all we hear is crickets. We spend all this time working on the perfect image, language, hashtags, strategy, only to receive - nothing. It's soul crushing. 

You go all in on the latest trend, search for the perfect music to go with your video, dance and point, edit, try a new platform. You know that social media works. It's worked before, it works for your competitors (or so they say). And you can't help but feel pretty stupid and somewhat humiliated that once again you've given your all to come up empty handed. 

You're not alone.

You know social media is important to your business, you know it will work, and there has to be a way to engage your audience. There is.

When you understand:
- how social media platforms use psychology to keep us here
- what is happening inside your clients' minds
- how to use psychology to motivate your audience to take the action you need.

Now is the time to get that understanding and be the engaging business your audience craves (and you need it to be).

Here’s what people are saying about what they've learnt from Kara Lambert about the Psychology of Social Media


Amazed with Kara's ability to generate leads from her posts

Started work with Kara a week ago and I'm amazed how her knowledge can help with the Facebook posts!

My posts on Facebook have increased incredibly the likes and quote request after I started work with Kara.

I tried few other copywriters in the past and can't compare the quality of the work with Kara.

Today, one of my posts had 95 comments, 30 likes and about 50 quote requests! Thank you Kara for your hard work with me! I can't thank you enough! I LOVE your work!

Enjoyed learning about social media for the first time

Being an older gal, I was not expecting to enjoy your presentation as much as I did. But, it was fantastic. Thank you.

Irena found real understanding underpinned with psychology

Having an experienced sounding board. The idea of a client's buying cycle stayed with me.

I needed to understand whether Facebook ads were for me. We had a conversation and she shared her own journey and related it to mine. I could then see what would or wouldn't work for my situation.

Endlessly searching and not doing. You can endlessly sit online and 'learn' but in the end you just have to have a go and then iterate.

She's easy to talk to and has a broad skill set - meaning its her knowledge of human psychology that is key. I love that she's real and not 'salesy'.

About Kara Lambert

 I focus on the psychology behind business success, especially helping business owners overcome the fears that hold them back. My knowledge of psychology in business is applied across stakeholders (staff, customers, owners) and communication methods. I hold tertiary qualifications in Psychology and Management; have worked with online businesses since 2000, seven of those years on Facebook.
Other than that, I'm not one for hustle culture or shaming people into compliance. I believe our businesses are there to serve our clients and us rather than business owners being a slave.
