First understand this is a process and not everyone is at the same place. A great analogy to use is a football field. Maybe you have been in business for some time and are just 10 yards away from the goal, but just need 1-2 tweaks to propel you forward. Or you may be on the other end of the field, just getting started and have 90 yards to goal. For some, they are not even on the field yet, and are just getting started.
Wherever you are in the process, understand it is a process for everyone. We have all been there.
1. Be The Person
Become the person that people want to follow and do business with. It really comes down to personal development. Don’t be the whiner, complainer or negative person nobody wants to be around. Work on yourself to become the people you want to attract to your business and work with.
Believe in what is possible even if you can’t see it yet. This can be a huge obstacle for many because there are a lot of cynical people out there. So when you know you are on the right track, and aren’t seeing the results you are looking for, keep your belief.
Your effort will take you where you want to go. Not many are born with natural marketing talent.
2. Create Free Content and Build Your List
When you learn something new, turn around and teach it to someone else. Take them with you on your journey. When you start solving problems, then you have a business.
Be sure and provide value. Don’t make your offer just a sales pitch, but look to first build authority and trust. The money will come later. This is a continuous process throughout your business life no matter how successful you are.
Most people stop too soon!
3. Connect With Your Leads
Don’t be a phone-hater. Your phone is one of the best business assets you have. You are not trying to get someone to buy something, but to determine what they need. Truly listen to them. Don’t go into this with a preconceived notion to sell.
One of the most powerful questions you can ask is, “How can I best help you?”
4. Create Massive Results One Step At A Time
This comes from doing steps 1-3 consistently over and over again. Then rinse and repeat. This process may take months to years depending on where you are. It’s the way every top earner has gotten to where they are today.
5. Find An Exposure Agent
What is this? A person, company or system that has a much greater reach and audience than you do. Find one in your niche and go from there. Get good at the above steps, and when you get enough results, you get on someone’s radar. That is when things will blow up fast because now you are exposed to a much bigger audience.
Nothing about these steps is fancy or sexy – it takes time, hard work and effort, but by following these 5 steps in order, you will see massive results in your business.
