Do you ever look at all the people online and you see what they are doing with their teams and businesses and you think to yourself "good for them, but I don't have any clue on where to start".
That is going to change today.
I am going to help you get off the ground and gain momentum in your team and your business by giving you a breakdown of how to start.
I built my business totally on social media.
I started building my business online in 2016, and If you can believe it, couldn't even copy and paste!
I was the least techy person you know.
So don't worry if you are telling yourself "man, I just don't get all these working parts" or "I don't understand how social media works".
Because if I can learn, anyone can learn to build their business using social media.
CHOOSE A STARTING POINT
The first thing you want to do is to pick one platform.
There are so many places where you can find content and people to follow.
There are always going to be people creating a new app or platform and something new that is popular.
That's not going to change, not now and not in the future.
So pick one platform to start with. Learn it, master it, and completely understand it.
Then you can branch out and try another platform.
WHO IS YOUR PERFECT PROSPECT
Once you have picked your platform then you need to figure out who your perfect prospect is.
The key here is that you don't want to talk to everyone. Because we don't want them all on our team.
Take some time and dial in on who your perfect prospect is.
Find out what they are looking for, what age group are they?
Are they entrepreneurs? Are they parents? What is their pain point?
Answering these questions is the best way to really understand your audience and what they are looking for.
Once you know who you are talking to, then you can create valuable content geared towards them.
BUILD THE RELATIONSHIP
This next thing is a big part where people get stuck when building their businesses on social media.
You have to engage with your audience.
They think because there is thousands of people out there that they will just come to you.
But in reality, most people want to buy from someone they know, like, and trust.
So you have to engage. You have to give love to get love.
Don't just talk about your product, build the relationship by being authentic and a human being.
Ask them questions relevant to them and find out where they are struggling.
If you start to serve those people they will start to follow you.
YOU HAVE TO POP THE QUESTION
You have chosen your platform, figured out your perfect prospects, and engaged with them. Now what?
Now you have to ask the question. You have to ask people for what you want.
If you never ask them, they are never going to know that you have a business, a product, or an opportunity that they can benefit from.
You build the relationship first, and then be direct by asking them.
You can say " Hey I have loved getting to know you. I am building a business online and you would be perfect for it. Would you be open to taking a look at what we are doing?".
And that's it. If they say no, then you move on.
You just keep doing that consistently. You can't stop and start on social media.
There is too many things going on and if you are not showing up consistently for those people, you will lose their interest.
Keep showing up.
It takes most people a good twelve months to build a following on any sort of social media platform, but you have to stay consistent.
You keep going until you find the right people.
But stay in your lane, don't get caught up by shiny object syndrome.
Stay in your lane and be consistent until it is profitable on that platform and then branch out.
If you do the steps in the right order, it works, even for the average person.
