1. Find your niche

If you don’t know what a niche is here’s the definition:

“A position particularly well suited to the person who occupies it.”

 

That might sound confusing, so in plain english that means to find something which interests you that you’re good at.

 

So for example: If you want to make money online you’re going to need to identify what you’re passionate about otherwise you will just be chasing the money and be MISERABLE while you do it.

It’s like going to school to become a doctor or lawyer when you’re interested in art. Yea you will make more money but you will feel empty inside never truly knowing what it would be like to follow your passion.

 

So take some time to really ponder on what niche you want to dive into because this is how you will identify your “TARGET MARKET.”

 

After you’ve identified what niche you’re in whether that’s health and nutrition, make-up and cosmetics, training and info products, or even stuff as random as juggling, ping pong, or under water basket weaving.

 

The next thing you’re going to want to do is figure out what product you would like to promote to your niche.

 

If you don’t even have a product to sell then I recommend you start with this system right here ==> Yrcharisma.onlinesalespro.com

 

Now, I would recommend using Instagram to get the word out about your product/service. So if you don’t have an Instagram account I HIGHLY recommend creating one, It’s FREE 🙂

 

Instagram has over 400 million active users and over 70 million are in the U.S. So you will never run out of people to talk to + if you just had

.0001% of the total amount of people on IG following you that would be 40,000 people!!!

 

There is no question if Instagram is a good tool to use, but a better question to ask is how exactly do you use it to build a following and make money?

 

Well, I’ve used Instagram to help me build a following of over 50,000 people and generate over 6,000 leads for my business so It’s by far one of my top 3 traffic generation methods and one of my favorites!

So over the past 7-8 months that’s exactly 6,144 leads and out of that I’ve sponsored 100’s into different affiliate products/my main company.

Pretty cool stuff right?

But enough about what I’ve been able to do, this is all about you now. Before I show you what TO DO, I want to show you what NOT TO DO

 

AVOID THESE COMMON MISTAKES

Instagram can be used or abused and the reason why 99% of people never get the type of traction they’re looking for is because of a few things.

A proven step-by-step system that will guide you through these steps? Click here to take a look at our strategy…

MISTAKE #1: All they post about is their company or product.

Contrary to popular belief most people think the more they post about how great their product or service is the more customers they will acquire. Now, I don’t know about you but I’ve never logged into Instagram thinking…

“Hmm… I wonder what I’m going to buy on here today.” People go onto IG to engage with cool photos for motivation and entertainment. So if all you’re posting about is how great your product/service is it’s like you’re one of those late night infomercials that nobody watches. DON’T SPAM EVER!

 

MISTAKE #2: They jump around too much.

I call this the “hype phase.” This is when someone gets HYPED on a new marketing strategy or product and then a month or even a week later they’ve jumped to the next hot marketing method, or company. They constantly jump from one thing to the next chasing the shiny object like a dog chases it’s tail. If you’re doing this thinking there’s something wrong with the product or service you’re promoting then STOP! You’re damaging your credibility. It’s like trying to learn how to ride a bike, skateboard, and surf all at the same time. You might be able to juggle a few things if you’re an advanced online marketer, but if you’re brand new this will NEVER work for you. The average millionaire has 7 streams of income only AFTER they’ve mastered their first one… Wax on wax off my son.

 

MISTAKE #3: They complain and quit too soon.

If you’re serious about your future like I believe you are, then you’re going to need to commit LONG TERM! And by long term I mean AT LEAST 24 months. If you’ve ever read the book “The Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell he says it takes about 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. Now, will it take you that long to get a result? Absolutely not! You can start getting results right away, but don’t get discouraged if results don’t come immediately. Anything worthwhile takes time. You can’t slow roast a steak in the microwave, and for you vegetarians/vegans reading this it takes around 50-100 days to fully grow/harvest your vegetables before you can eat them!

 

WHAT TO DO

If you’re trying to stand out from the crowd and do something different the best way to do that is to figure out what 99% of people are doing and do the opposite! So if you see people posting up pictures spamming their product or service all the time then what should you be posting?

 

Well…Here’s exactly what I post!

 

1.  Lifestyle pictures/videos!

You don’t need to be a professional videographer to do this! I don’t even have a nice camera… What I do is shoot videos on my iphone and if I want to go above and beyond I’ll sometimes edit together quick little 15 second video clips using iMovie. Simple little videos of you walking on the beach or pictures where you’re doing something that looks like fun will captivate someones attention right away! MARKET YOUR TIME FREEDOM!!!

 

2.  Motivational and Inspirational posts

If you look at my main Instagram page: @NickAnderson208 you will see that I post up a lot of motivational pictures with quotes in them. This is a great way to start your profile because you might not be living the lifestyle you desire in the beginning or you might not have a team in your area yet.

3. Pictures with the team and Influential people!

If you’re in a Network Marketing company and there’s a team in your area get together with them and take pictures/make videos when you’re working. When people see that it draws them into the culture that you’re creating and naturally they will want to be apart of it. It doesn’t even have to be with your own personal team, just as long as you’re working with others it shows teamwork. Also, if you go to a networking event make it a goal to get pictures with the top dogs in the room!

4. Shout-outs!

If someone in your company ranks up, gets a company car, paid for vacation, or hits a new rank/income bonus, post that up on your page with a picture of them and a shoutout. Not only does it recognize their accomplishments but it shows that you associate with other successful people and if someone were to join you they would be in the same boat.

5. Family, Friends, &

Whenever you hang out with your friends, have a family gathering, or order a bomb plate of food at a nice restaurant post up pictures of that. For some reason pictures of sushi work well. Don’t ask me why… I guess people just love drooling over pictures of good food 😉

Hashtags

Hashtags are a great way to target a specific market that would be interested in what you’re selling. There are millions of hashtags on Instagram and you want to make sure you’re picking the correct ones for the product that you want to promote. If you’re trying to attract new people to your company make sure you’re not just using your companies hashtag. For example if your company is Amway don’t just put #Amway in the description of your photos or videos. The reason for this is because everyone else in the company is doing that and you will only attract leaders from other teams, not new people.

 

EXAMPLE: If you’re in a company that offers travel discounts you would want to hashtags similar interests for travel. So stuff like #Vacation

#Tourism #Holiday #SpringBreak #Wanderlust #Adventure #IGtravel

#Beach #Honeymoon #Lifestyle #Worldtraveler

 

If you’re in a company that sells health and nutrition products you would want to hashtag stuff like #Beastmode #Fitness #Workout #Gym #Diet

#Getfit #Cleaneating #Squat #Health #Nutrition #Mealprep #Bulking

 

The whole goal is to hashtag similar interests to your product or service, that way you will be attracting the right people who would actually want to buy what you’re selling.

 

Just think: “What is my perfect prospect interested in?” and hashtag this!

Apps and sales funnels

The key to promoting your business so you can make money on Instagram is the process your target market has to go through before they buy your product.

Before I do that here are a few free apps you should download to make your photos/videos look more professional.

 

  1. Aviary
  2. Font Candy
  3. InstaSize
  4. Pic Stitch and PicLab
  5. Repost
  6. Squaready and SquareadyV

Now, I want to draw out for you what your sales funnel will look like. If you’re posting up the pictures and videos I recommended people will start to comment on your photos asking what you do… This is when you tell them to click the link in your profile to learn more. When they do it will take them to your capture page where you gather their contact information to build your list. They are then directed through your sales funnel to see your presentation video offering your product.

 

Here is how it works:

 

Capture page: OSP.YRCHARISMA.COM

 

  • Offers FREE VALUE in return for their email address
  • Example: Ebook, PDF, Free Video, Bootcamp, Report
  • Does not say anything about your company or product
  • Builds curiosity & anticipation to see what’s on the other side

After they enter in their info on your capture page it will take them to your thank you page with either a video or text saying something like this…

When they click the button it will take them to your sales page.

And after they watch your sales video that either you made yourself, or your company made they will then be compelled to buy your product. Also, because they put in their information on your capture page you can follow up with them WHENEVER YOU WANT!

 

They basically just gave you their virtual business card.

The fortune is made in the follow up, so if you’re trying to make your first €10,000 online you absolutely need to follow up with your leads.

 

Following up is actually very simple, because if they showed enough interest in what you have to offer by putting their information on your page then they will be starstruck when you take the time to reach out to them! This method is effective for the sole reason that 99% of people don’t know how to present or sell anything online.

So if you have team members or business partners that suck at selling you could make a sales video for them and they can implement this entire funnel process into their business.

The coolest part is this process is all AUTOMATED so when your Instagram following grows larger and larger people will be clicking your link going through your funnel and buying your products ALL WHILE YOU SLEEP!  This not only works with just Instagram. You can use this method for your Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Blog, or any other social media site there is!

Now, if you want to put this process virtually on STEROIDS then continue reading below because I’m going to show you how you can automate all of your engagement, likes, comments, direct messages, and even follow requests!

When I started using this method for my business my results blew threw the roof! I went from only being able to enroll 12 people in 14 months to over 300 in under 12 months! I no longer needed to do any home or hotel meetings, hand out business cards to random people, or prospect a soul! People were chasing me down buying my training and joining my company without even talking to me.

But I wanted things to move quicker…

I’m always looking for ways to simplify the process saving me time, energy, and money. So again I looked for a faster way to produce bigger results.

The methods that I just taught you will work wonders for your branding but is simply posting up cool pictures with the right hashtags all that you need?

Think of it like this… Every social media site that you’re on whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, or even your blog Is like your restaurant or store front. It needs to look attractive on the outside and inside in order for people to want to eat there!

If you don’t take any time to clean up your pages it’s like you’re letting the tables collect dust, the bathrooms overflow, and the kitchen smell of rotten meat.

Not very professional right? (Unless you like the smell of rotten food)

But you’re still missing ONE THING… and that’s,

TRAFFIC

The single most important piece to the puzzle, and seemingly the one that almost everyone struggles with. I’ve spent over €30,000 the past few years just to learn how to do all of this stuff and that doesn’t make me better than anyone else, that just makes me better than who I used to be.

 

I know plenty of people out there who dwarf my results and that motivates me to work even harder so I can get to their level! Starting out as a college dropout with no job, less than €100 in my bank account, and was living with my parents, I’m a living testimony to show you that If I can do it… YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

 

If you’ve made it this far into this blog post I want to commend you for sticking to your word and following through. 80% of people wouldn’t of even read this far…
