You may be reading this because of the title or the photo. Great. Sadly though in my experience many will not execute or take action based on the content that I will be sharing here. They would rather click and follow the person who promises 1500% return of your money in 45 minutes when you drop xyz amount.
Laziness and seeking quick gain is a dangerous mix. Many have lost fortune to this potent concoction that has been ingested by the masses. But that is not you, I hope.
In my journey selling online, I have come to notice that one thing increases your chances of getting the sale and growing your business and brand. That one thing is being perceived as the authority in the space where you are trying to sell.
Unfortunately there is no shortcut to it. You have to keep consistently giving out knowledge that helps people move closer to their goals and desires. It can take months but certainly not 45 minutes.
You said you have a solid product or service to give the world ba? Well, the floor is yours.
You do not go about doing this giving knowledge for free with the mindset to get back. What will set you truly free to really deliver is when you are giving out the knowledge not in the expectation or end game to collect.
I’ve made this mistake in the past so I know what I’m talking about. Give out not expecting anything in return. Let your value bless someone regardless of what you think you will get back. (This is why it is a good idea to have an alternative means of earning money at the initial phase of starting a business.)
Choose your medium. Understand the game. Facebook can help you build your authority – so refine what you post and make them about your message and knowledge and less about who is in Aso Rock or who is sleeping with who in the BB house (unless of course, politics or gossip and pop culture is your niche).
Instagram is doing awoof right now because it helps you get to more of the audience you want to reach faster. Then when you reach that audience, bless them with your knowledge and may be you will get blessed back in return.
