And just like that, we’re a few months away from Christmas. Can you believe it? But hey, if you’ve been planting new ideas over the past 6 months, watching your dreams take shape, soaking in the inspiration that causes you to see things in a different light, I want you to know that you’ve already won!
Doing is the action part of the faith / dream equation and frankly, as small business owners, (humans too) we can’t have one without the other.
Just this past week, someone asked me if I had ***to start over on social media*** what would I do first?
I didn’t hesitate to speak the WORD.
Let me give you the elevator version.
7 Steps To Take If You’re Now Starting Out On Social Media
Here’s what I’d do if I was just starting out on social media:
• Build community on social media first
• Develop a robust content plan that serves that community
• Follow a content schedule *HINT: I’d publish a piece of content (long or short form) every single day
• Build content formats
• Formulate a funnel that would move my community from the public park of social media to the private space of my email list and other owned assets.
• Scale my content system/s
• Develop a revenue funnel that got my audience to convert from being followers to customers. This would work just because I could give my community value directly via email SMS, or any of my owned assets.
All of these are the seeds you plant along the way. As the months go by, if you do it right, you’ll see something magical start to happen. It’s called monetization and it’s where you need to be if you’re building a business online.
