You don't have to pay for ads.
't have to be seen by millions.
You don't have to be best at everything to get yourself out there.
You don't have to have thousands of followers before you start making money.
Building a business has never come at a better time! You have the whole world at your finger tips - literally! You can connect with people all over the world with just your phone, wi-fi and your personality!
I built my business, was able to leave my full time career and match my monthly salary - with just my social media and facebook community.
I want to give you some of my top tips to make this happen for you and your business;
1. Be Genuine
If you are creating a business to make money - it won't work.
You have to create your business with a deeper meaning than that; to serve people, to empower them, support them, to make an impact or a difference, to share your knowledge, to offer your solutions - whatever it may be, your business HAS to be built on a deeper purpose and intention than to 'make you money.'
2. Have Fun
If you are going to build a business and change your lifestyle completely, then you have to have fun doing it or this will be 'just another job you want to leave.'
When building your brand, your name, your business - have fun and enjoy the process. Life is a long road and the more fun you have along the way, the more you will radiate that out to the world and to your community.
3. Have A Plan!
This is something that so many miss out on or quickly try to skim over.
You must have a strategy, a plan, a clear direction.
When will you speak to your community?
How will you draw traction and engagement?
How will you encourage them to take action or talk about you to their friends?
All of these things are vital for your business to grow.
Don't just start and be sporadic about it - you must have intention and be consistent with this throughout growing your business. This isn't a hobby, it is a business and this has to become your new mindset.
4. Have Like-Minded Support
Business and entrpenrueship can be very lonely and difficult to navigate alone. Find friends and support from like-minded people doing what you are doing.
These network will help you;
Offer solutions to one another
Extend your knowledge of areas you don't like doing or find hard
Give you opportunities to collaborate and connect
Realise you are not alone in the triumphs and struggles along the way
5. Be Patient
Things don't happen overnight - and if they do, can you sustain that?
Be patient with your journey and don't give up easily.
Things take time to grow and the best businesses build their community organically and naturally - THIS is where the magic lies.
Natural marketing and organic connections will breed success and interest for you and your business.
So be patient ands stay consistent - remember this isn't about money, this is about impact and change!
6. Rich Content
You HAVE to give people a reason to come back. There are so many people online and you want to stand out! Give your community a reason to talk about you and keep coming back.
Make sur your content is genuine, yours and rich in material that will benefit them. This is about THEM and not you.
How will they feel when they connect with you?
Read your content?
Watch your live?
Make your content focussed on THEM.
