When I used to look at social media influencers, I wondered how they were making money. Maybe you've wondered how to gain social influence for a female fashion brand. It’s that age old mystery that everyone offline ponders about. These influencers seemed to be posting all day with content that couldn’t possibly generate any income, but then I learned their secret to monetization. They were using social media as the vehicle but not as their business.
I remember coming online not understanding these principles whatsoever and then being improperly advised. I was told to basically inbox people day and night and become an infomercial on my own page. Even having been a successful copywriter, I didn’t understand the social media game. After all, I had focused on traditional marketing in my career, not online marketing. It’s only 9 months later that I discovered what I had been told to do was actually completely a lie. Instead, I found something called Attraction Marketing that used principles to attract people to you, principles that would naturally repel the wrong audience, but not your entire audience.
Still, I was missing a huge piece of the puzzle. I now knew how to post but I still didn’t fully understand how to monetize outside of the jewelry, skincare, and wine network marketing companies I had started in. I’m no longer in network marketing. I’ve since gone on to be a digital course creator. But no matter what profession you’re in online, there is a right and wrong way to set up your business, and what almost no one will tell you is that an email list is key to that.
In my new 139 page book, The Essential Guide To Your First Month Of Online Marketing, I am taking you step-by-step through your first 30 days as an online marketing. I haven’t seen anything like this anywhere else out there. You can be a complete newbie, an online marketer who is still struggling to monetize, a 9-5er who is just so over the day to day grind, or a brick-and-mortar business owner who wants your business online. This book will work for you. I’m holding your hand, virtually of course, and taking you through exactly what to do week 1, 2, 3, and 4.
My advice - surprise! - does not start with social media. I believe people are lying to you when they say to start your business that way. Yes, I do, girlfran’! If you follow my steps exactly, you will be set up and ready to go within just one month online. But most importantly, you will be set up the right way from the get go instead of floundering for months trying to figure this out on your own. This is the best online marketing strategy for personal stylists, fashion designers, interior designs, and any other creative professional out there.
