We love to highlight and acknowledge successful entrepreneurs out there every chance we get. And because March is a month dedicated to celebrating women from all over the world, we decided to introduce you to some amazing female entrepreneurs who also happen to rock on social media.
You can take inspiration from their success and grow as a social media marketer and entrepreneur.
After all, the entrepreneurial life is a tough one. There are many days when you wonder if you’re doing the right things and whether your efforts will pay off or not. Unfortunately, there is no recipe for achieving success overnight, but you can surely find inspiration to help you get through the tough days and move forward.
Here’s a list of 7 inspiring ladies with a strong social media presence who managed to achieve tremendous success in their lines of work.
Bonus! One Tool to Help You Build a Stronger Social Media Presence
I for one felt inspired by those amazing female entrepreneurs and their success on social media, so I started looking for a way to improve in this regard as well.
It’s created by the Squirrly company and promises to help you get “One Year of Social Media Posts in a Flash.” I had to give it a try.
First off, the tool was easy to set up, and it was even easier to find content to share on our social media accounts in just a few minutes. That’s because the tool has a feature called the “Social Media Assistant” that mines the web for articles based on your desired keyword.
For instance, I searched for “female entrepreneurs,” and the tool delivered lots of great results. I was impressed with the quality of the articles suggested (see below).
But there was something else that got my attention. You can shorten your link directly in the platform and automatically add emojis with a single click.
Of course, the tool is more than just this, but I wanted to mention this feature because I don’t remember seeing a similar tool do this. If you are on the market for a great new social media automation tool, I’d recommend you check it out.
