Two years ago, we closed our social media accounts.
In our words back then:
We started Keap to prioritize connection: to the natural world, to our loved ones, and to our own spirits. In knowing this deeper meaning behind our work, we often ask ourselves what’s stopping us from feeling true connection in our own lives. The answers are plentiful, but one common thread often emerges: addictive technology that keeps us distracted and restless.
When we announced our move away from Instagram, many of you generously shared your personal relationships with social media, and your journeys away from it. We’d love to hear how it’s been going. What has improved since you made specific changes? What challenges have you faced? Feel free to reply to this email to express your thoughts on this topic.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be reflecting on our experience since leaving social media and address questions we often hear on this topic. Questions like, can a small business really survive without social media? If not through social media, how do you connect with customers and get the word out? And many more, which we look forward to unpacking with you all. Spoiler alert: we are not going back!
Here’s to a year of building real social connections!
– Harry from Keap, Steward-Owner
