Some of you may have noticed that there’s been a little chatter in my social media feed about “AskDrMarta”. Well, Dr. Marta is my mom…shocker, I know. 😏
While she could have chosen to kick back and live it up in retirement, mom instead opted to find ways of sharing a lifetime of wisdom about how to support parents and early childcare workers in how to support young learners. I believe in my mom’s work so much that I agreed to help her share the word about what she is doing.
Thanks to an incredible core of friends and family we launched out of the gate strong on both Facebook and Instagram in just 16 days, but as some of you know, it’s getting harder and harder to get noticed on these two platforms. The experts say that the best way to get noticed is for people to comment and share your posts. Likes do count but not as much as comments and shares. Isn’t it crazy to think that people can line a post all they like but that like doesn’t help spread the word to other like a comment or share. #thingswesaynow
The best practices say that companies have to create content that makes people want to engage. Well, we aim to do that with Quick Tips by Dr. Marta where Mom will take on questions submitted by people needing advice on how to help early learners succeed.
We will also make sure those of you who follow us on social media will be some of the first to hear about special opportunities.
Ask Dr. Marta is the culmination of a dream that began many years ago to be an accessible resource that helps parents and educators rise to the occasion of helping kids learn to their best ability.
You can find Dr. Marta on Facebook and Instagram and very soon she will become a regular contributor to TheWRITEaddiction staff.
Tell your friends and loved ones who have been looking for someone to help them improve their children’s education situations to #AskDrMarta.
