frustrated with your social media growth?
here's a way to make your journey more enjoyable!
I’m so excited to welcome you to the latest edition of Social Media Conversations! Please feel free to share it with your friends if you found it helpful helpful :)
Resources of the week🔥
1. Book more sales calls
Has marketing your service always felt sleazy and salesy? Are you going round and round in endless useless calls without getting clients? Are you periodically stuck with an empty queue?
My friend Hayden’s FREE workshop, Book More Sales Calls, will give you a tremendous kickstart to solve all those problems!
2. Building trust through web design
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been ruminating over the idea of building a website for my services. One key aspect I’ve been overthinking is how not to do on-the-face marketing to a visitor and how to build genuine trust.
And my friend Jannis wrote this excellent thread that truly answered my questions! You should check it out.
Frustrated with your social media growth?? 😖
I recently crossed 1000 followers on Twitter in 5 months. And while it might not have been an ultimate success journey, I realize that I’m truly grateful for the quality of my audience.
Also, it felt like a significant milestone, ya know?
Looking back, I understand that some crucial factors allowed me to grow, have fun, and tap into Twitter simultaneously. Here are the top 5, and I truly hope they help you too!
1. Keep your DMs open.
You’re missing out on tons of opportunities by keeping your DMs closed. You’re not allowing people to reach out to you and even say ‘Hi!” Over the past year, I’ve formed many friendships purely due to inbound messages. Don’t lose out on it:)
2. Don’t put threads until you reach 150 followers
Threads take time to write. And in your early days, you’ll be tweeting into the void. What do you do instead? Focus on making friends!! And tweet not more than two times a day. It’ll make your journey more enjoyable.
3. Know your WHY
I get a couple of DMs every week from people asking, “How to grow on Twitter?”. And the first thing I ask them is, “Why do you want to grow on Twitter?” Dig deeper and deeper into your WHY. And soon, you’ll realize you don’t need an AUDIENCE to do what you want today.
4. “What if I want to build an audience?”
Fair enough. Ask yourself what type of account you want to become. Someone with 6k followers and no engagement? Or someone with 100F and min 2 to 3 replies to every tweet?
Your environment and metrics are yours to decide.
Counter-intuitively, when you focus on what you want: Learning from people, setting your business up, putting out good content, and helping others... You attract great folks around you. I assure you.
The world works in weird ways. So focus on your quality and process.
5. Stop focusing on virality metrics
Viral tweets aren’t great, especially when you’re not ready. Have you thought about what you’re going to do with followers? Or what quality of people you’ll be bringing in? Or how much you’ll get overwhelmed responding to folks? Think deep.
You don’t need followers to start a business. Are you a freelancer/coach? Just pitch to 2 or 3 people, and start working! Building a SaaS? Get ten paid subscribers to validate the product idea. You don’t need 100k followers in 10 hours.
Growing on Twitter is a long-term game. Don’t get burnt out. Chill. Have fun. Learn from the amazing people around you. And you’ll be fine!
Overwhelmed with setting up your coaching business?
I’ve been working on my next freebie, Growth Checklist for Coaches, for almost a month.
Along my journey, I realized that as solopreneurs, it’s damn easy to get sucked into this vicious cycle of doing shit that doesn’t work. We spend hours and hours doing stuff that doesn’t move the needle and end up getting frustrated.
So if you’re a coach/consultant and know exactly what I mean, then the Growth Checklist is for you.
Ideally, it should help you go from 0 to your first couple of clients and kickstart your business. I truly wish it plays a role in helping you kickstart your business!
You can pre-order it here.
