What about building it a little bit faster?
Building an audience online always takes time, but there are always ways to do it just a little bit quicker.
When I first started in network marketing, I didn’t have any audience (other than my parents and high school friends, who aren’t into business by any means). So I had to do something about it.
Don’t worry! You don’t have to stay stuck for as long as I had.
In this training you’re going to learn the exact methods I’ve personally used (and continue to use) to keep building up the audience aka my tribe. And also, how you can build it faster!!
How to Grow Your Audience on Facebook
GROW YOUR AUDIENCE ON FACEBOOK – SET A GOAL
No matter what it is that you do, goal setting is essential. I’m not talking about financial goals, because they’re directly proportionate to the action that you’re taking.
However, when it comes to growing an audience on social media, you can easily set that goal. What is the target? Do you want to grow your audience by 100 people in the next 30 days? Maybe 500 in the next 90 days?
Se that target, so that you know what you’re doing and what you need to focus on.
When you have those monthly goals, it’s very easy to break them down to weekly and daily. Then you’ll know how many people you need to add to your friends’ list on Facebook every single day.
That’s exactly what I did in the beginning – I set a goal to message 20 new people daily (pretty aggressive, but it worked!).
Set a goal for yourself that is doable, but also that’s going to push you a little out of your comfort zone.
GROW YOUR AUDIENCE ON FACEBOOK – CONTENT CREATION
Although we’re talking about audience building here, you can’t skip content creation. It’s absolutely essential!
If you’re only talking to people on Facebook, but they don’t see any new content from you, it’ll be very hard to build rapport and even move the conversations to business.
What’s the first thing that you do when someone sends you a friend request or a message?
You look at their profile!
You basically turn on the “terminator mode” and start scanning their page and what they’re posting. That helps you determine if you want to connect with that person.
The same thing happens when you go out and send someone a message. That’s why content matters.
I won’t dig into content creation much here, there’s more articles on the blog (just do a search). However, if I had to categorize social media content, there’s 3 things people come to Facebook for – to be educated, inspired, and entertained. Your content has to fill those needs.
GROW YOUR AUDIENCE ON FACEBOOK – 3 KEY STRATEGIES
When it comes to the actual “how-do”, there’s 3 main strategies I like to use that will help you grow your audience fairly quickly:
- Fan Pages
Here’s what you want to do – find groups that are either business related (if that’s who you’re trying to attract), products’ related, or even groups around your hobbies.
All you do is go out and network within those groups. Get active there and participate in conversations – reply to people’s posts, ask questions yourself.
I like business or entrepreneurship groups, but I also like groups that have nothing to do with business. In my case, I’m a part of a few travel and makeup groups, and a few other interest groups.
What is it that YOU like aside from business? Research those groups! And then start networking there.
The same thing you’d do with the fan pages – find the ones in your niche, and get active there. Start networking with people and messaging them.
Facebook profiles? If you have friends that you’re networking with, you want to engage on their content too. It’s as simple as that!
Wanna do all of this faster? Do a 90-day blitz of full focused action. Set a target of how many people you’re going to message to every day and go for it!
Like I mentioned earlier, I did this when I was just starting out. My target was 20 new people every day. Multiply that by 90, and this gives you 1,800 people.
Of course, not everybody has responded, and not everybody has added me as a friend. Regardless, my audience has grown tremendously and continues to grow because of the effort I have put in.
And you can do the exact same thing!
