2. Look at what marketing methods are trending for 2017
Personally I like to start reading about online marketing trends prior to a new year starting. In 2017, there are several strategies that you can take advantage of like mobile video. Video became more popular than ever a couple of years ago and there is no end in sight. More and more people are watching video on their mobile devices. Wouldn’t you like for them to be watching YOUR videos?
3. Sell YOU instead of your products
What sets you apart from others that are selling the same product or services as you? You are unique and should attract people to YOU first! People buy stuff from people they know, like and trust.
Recently, someone that I’ve known for over 2 years reached out to buy a product that I sell. She could have made the purchase from thousands of other people but she chose me because I built a relationship with her. You can too!
I know what you are thinking … one person in 2 years? That’s just an example. I’ve duplicated this thousands of times, resulting in thousands of customers for my business!
Sell yourself first by sharing your experiences, your successes and your journey. That’s how you can start making the connections and grow your brand online.
4. Be consistent in all that you do.
Consistency is your best friend when it comes to growing your brand online. No one is attracted to a flake.
When I started blogging a few years ago, I was very consistent. That is exactly why I still make money from articles I wrote a few years ago. Whether it’s content creation, or your daily method of operation, be consistent in the marketplace. People are watching.
5. Learn, Do and Teach.
When you get started with growing your online brand, share what you learn. Let’s say you made your first sale. That’s exciting, isn’t it? How did you accomplish that? What skills did you learn? Share it in a blog post, video or social media. People will start connecting with you.
Even you fail at something, share it so others can learn from your mistake. By being transparent with the online community, people will respect you even more.
