Identify your audience

Identify your audience

The first step is to find out who your audience is and how they like to communicate. It’s important to know what matters to your audience – their likes, dislikes, struggles, interests, goals, etc. Basically, anything that will help you connect with them on an emotional level. Make sure you know what makes them tick – what’s important to them? What do they like? What don’t they like? What are their “pain points,” and how can you help them with those? Once you know these things, it’s much easier to tailor your messaging and style based on this information.

What does your audience want?

What does your audience want?

If you already have a few fans, clients, or followers, you’re ahead of the game because you can ask them questions directly. 

  • What’s the single biggest result you want to have? 
  • What is important about that result for you? 
  • What are your biggest challenges? 
  • When it comes to your career or business, what do you want to change in the next 30 days? (You could create a workshop around this for your followers!) 
  • What sort of project would you like me to do next? 
  • More than anything, what would you like me to know? 
  • What are some video topics you’d like me to tackle?

Choose your platform

Choose your platform

It is important to make sure that you are targeting the right platforms for your message. Platforms can be social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok, where people will likely use them more often than they would their email or text messages on the phone. Or maybe you want to limit your platform to email or newsletters.

What is engagement? For the sake of simplicity, engagement could be defined as ANY action you take on social media! Write articles and create posts based on what they want to hear and specifically what they’d like to hear from you . Speak directly to them, in the first person, using attractive headlines and images. Offer solutions that play off of their fears & hopes as well as speak to their values.

Be patient and be consistent

Be patient and be consistent

Building your online community takes patience, no matter how much social media content growth seems instantaneous on Instagram and Twitter. Like any other form of marketing or promotion work, it’s important to develop relationships by taking cues from what they enjoy about your product/service while also being consistent when communicating through different networks — they’re worth every ounce of effort spent because these people will likely be the source of life long loyal fans for you (especially if their needs are met).

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
