Everything you need to know to create a successful online business
There are some things you should be aware of.
1. If you're spending your precious time, energy, and resources on Instagram, you SHOULD be creating passive income (eBooks, eCourses) - otherwise you just have a very expensive hobby!
Easily create an eBook, eCourse, or online membership program.
This way, you can help as many people as possible who come across your Instagram page, and earn the income you deserve to help you help even more people.
2. You CANNOT rely on Instagram to always show your posts to your followers
Capture their email address with a free, enticing offer (like a mini eBook) that's related to what you want to sell.
This way, with email, you'll be the one in charge (rather than Facebook Inc.) of contacting them & keeping them up to date with what you're doing.
3. You CANNOT rely on Instagram to be so popular forever - like any social media platform, its popularly will fizzle
Sigh, that'll be the day right? Haha!
Master Pinterest (which is honestly pretty easy to master!!) so that you are consistently driving traffic to your website to get more leads.
Link up your Pinterest account to Tailwind so that you can set up your Pins MONTHS in advance (which equals so little work for you!)
Have you thought about these yet? Have any of these thoughts crossed your mind?
If you have, you're smart
If you haven't, not to fear, you're in the right place!
Instagram is a fantastic platform for building a relationship with your audience
you DO NOT OWN your followers
Instagram and Facebook do.
And they are ultimately in charge of whether or not your followers see your new content, and what you're selling (aka, your income!)
Well I have news for you :)
Let me tell you a little about my story
When I first started growing on Instagram, business was GOOD since my initial set-up was to see clients
But soon, I literally had too many clients
I didn't have time to shower, workout, sleep
My quality of life was NOT good
I knew I needed to have more passive types of income -
meaning eBooks, eCourses - products I could sell without actually being involved in the process
So! On weekends & in my commutes to my part time job...
I listed to podcasts
I read books
and I took courses on online business
I also tried different strategies
Some were good
and some were not so effective!
BUT I figured out what works :)
AND what is UNNECESSARY!
Because let's be honest...
We have no time to waste!
We DON'T have time to write 5000 word blog posts
Or spend $5k on a fancy props for our photoshoots, expensive copywriters, etc. (NO way José!)
I figured out
What is actually necessary (and actually doable for real people!) to create and scale a successful, online business
I want to emphasize
I am just like you
I am not super special (well, only when talking to my mom 😉)
If I can do it, YOU can absolutely do it too
Over just 6-12 months, these were my results
IMPORTANT: this is without spending a single dollar on advertising or expensive copyrighters
My website page views - now with consistent traffic to my website (100k pageviews per month!), I can have ads (i.e. money!) and add more people to my email list (which also equals more money!)
This is highly reflective of my Pinterest growth where I now get a ton of easy, passive traffic
My recent PayPal earnings! Helllo!!
I now consistently make $20-30k+ per month while maintaining minimal expenses
Here's an overview of what's included!
Let's start making you some $ ASAP - I'll walk you through how to create your e-product to get your business rolling. Starting with your product is key - everything else you do in your business will be supporting what you are selling.
Now we actually have to sell & market your product. Learn here how to ethically do that - without feeling like a sleazy salesperson!
Creating an email list, email sequences, automations, etc. can seem like a nightmare - but it's NOT! I'll show you exactly what you need to know & how to implement email so you can spend the LEAST amount of time here as possible - and focus back on your business.
Now we need to get traffic to your site so more people can buy your product! And, it's very important to not rely just on Instagram for leads. Instagram could become unpopular or change their algorithm at any time. Master Pinterest & blogging easily here so you get tons of new traffic to your site.
Last but definitely not least is money & mindset! That is - how to get in the right headspace for growth. I was seriously dumbfounded when I learned how important this was - and it has transformed my business. I can't wait to let you in on these mindset secrets.
