Proximity will grow your online business FAST!

Putting yourself in front of the right people is one of the fastest ways to grow your online business.

 “ Proximity means you're in the sphere of their influence and can easily

be seen, heard, and noticed.

-Bonnie L. Frank 

 Proximity is about being close. Close to your ideal clients and customers, as well as close to colleagues who can help you grow and get ahead. One way to have proximity is to attend conferences in your industry. Proximity can help you stand out in a sea of people who are all doing similar things but because you are there with them and can easily get noticed and be top of mind. Going to conferences will help you grow your business and make connections so you can market your products, programs and services. There are so many great conferences for digital marketing, social media and podcasting, but in this episode I give you my top three. If you haven't thought about going to a conference, you should check these out.

Social Media posts that get engagement

Posting on social media is easy. Creating social media posts that consistently get engagement can be more difficult.

 “You want people to engage, you want people to stop their scroll, that is your goal.

Your goal is to stop the scroll.

-Bonnie L. Frank

It really isn't difficult to post on social media...It's not the posting that is difficult but getting engagement from your audience. If you're new to social media, you might be wondering why some posts do well and others don't. What does your target audience want to see from you?

Social media really is for being social and that is something that digital marketers need to keep top of mind. They need to remember the 80/20 rule where you provide 80% valuable content and 20% of the posts include a call to action and possibly a mention of something you have for sale.

Although you may not choose to grow your business like I did (going live three to seven times a day, seven days a week), any amount of live audio and video is a fabulous way to build trust with your audience and position yourself as an authority in your field. Whether it's Clubhouse rooms, Facebook audio rooms, Twitter Spaces, Greenroom or anywhere else, there are so many places to connect with your audience--LIVE!

In this episode, I share how to connect with your audience, how to strategically plan before going live, as well as tips for repurposing all of your audio and video content.

Do businesses or social media platforms owe their customers ANYTHING?

If you don't agree with one of my episodes, it's probably this one. Are YOU OWED anything by businesses or social media platforms? Listen to episode 89 and find out.

“I'm just here in a sandbox. That's my point. It’s not my sandbox. I don't own the sandbox. Zuckerberg owns the sandbox or Dorsey owns the sandbox or Paul and Rohan and their investors own the sandbox. It's not me. I don't own any of those three sandboxes and yet, I can use all three of those sandboxes, and many others.  I can play in them as much as I want, every single day, 24/7, to my heart's content.. ”

You DON'T want social media followers!

It's true. You DON'T want social media followers--it's not enough anymore! Check out episode 88 for all the details.

 

 “When you're posting, you're not posting with thousands and thousands of people in mind (you really honestly might not know all of your target audience who's following you), you're posting with one person in mind...that ideal client avatar.

-Bonnie L. Frank 

In today's episode I share why all the followers that most digital marketers are seeking, aren't actually what you want. Social media followers are really just a vanity metric. Many online marketers will tell you that you need tons of followers but if they are not the right kind of followers then you really are wasting your time. It’s important to have followers but they have the right followers. It's important to make sure your ideal clients are finding you.  As an entrepreneur or an online business owner you really want to know how each of the platforms work whether...

Clubhouse mistakes that are costing you money

Small mistakes can make a huge difference on social media. Here are seven mistakes that are costing you money. 

 “Your bio, regardless of the social media platform that you're using, needs to speak to who you are, what you're about and what's in it for other people, right off the bat. You've got to be clear. Otherwise people are going to look at your profile, and then they're going to leave because they have no idea who you are, what you're about, or if they should connect with you.”
