Why Hashtags Don't Grow Brands

Image Credits: Freepik

Hashtags won't attract people to your page.

Don't get me wrong, hashtags are amazing. The problem with hashtags is they force us to put all our focus on a number.

And we forget where our focus should be.

We can blame other factors for our lack of reach. Or we can put our focus back into the process.

The process of creating content worth interacting with.

The process of serving our cutomers regularly.

The process of building trust and winning hearts over time.

Hashtags serve you for the short-term. Building your brand is a focus for the long-term.

Grabbing attention is deadly!

Have you ever passed a child in a supermarket...

Crying because their mum wouldn't buy that cookie.

They try every trick in the book to grab attention!

If I drop on the floor and scream...

It never works out well. No one wants to be shouted at.

Noisy content always repels your audience.

People desire feeling understood, genuine interactions and creating a coonection.

Content that seeks attention will gain no affection.

Creat content that seeks connection.

Big brands won't tell you this:

The real reason as to how they become so successful.

Every day brands flood our social media feeds!

They're all shouting in a desperate attempt to win a space in our minds.

The more brands shout, the less we pay attention.

This is why, while all other brands are shouting.

Smart brands whisper and let their actions do the talking!

3 Psychological Marketing Tips To Influence Your Customers

Image Credits: Freepik

Here are 3 psychological marketing tips you can use to influence your customers.

1. People don't like to be told what to do. Try asking more questions

Save this post!

Will you save this post?

This reinforces the idea that saving must be a good idea. It gives people a choice.

 

2. Create an enemy to create your brand's tribe

People advocate for brands with a clear enemy.

By creating a common enemy you tap into your customer's need to get their voice heard

Nike's enemy is doing nothing.

Apple's enemy is a lack of innovation

 

3. Use the "Small Daily Equivalence"

Break down your product or service price daily

Compare it to a low cost commodity (like a cup of coffee)

This makes your product look more affordable

6 Things Creators Never Realise About Sales

Image Credits: Freepik

1. You can't do it all alone

If you want your business to grow, your team must grow too.

2. Working hard doesn't guarantee any results

You can work really hard and still achieve no results, because you are doing bad your work.

3. Each piece of content must have one purpose only

If you're trying to grow your followers and make sales from one post, you won't achieve either.

4. People do not buy your content, they buy you

If you want to have clients, sell your personality and the emotion of working with you.

5. Instant gratification content can destroy your business

You may feel the hit of sweet dopamine while you get great engagement from posts designed to "appeal momentarily" to your audience, but, you certainly ain't memorable.

6. Sales won't just come!

There's a lot more needed than just posting content, here's a few things:

  1. You need to have daily conversations.
  2. You need to balance content creation together with lead generation.
  3. Over-delivering will...

6 Sales Mistakes I Wish I Didn't Do In Business

Image Credits: Freepik

1. Not putting proper value on my work

I used to coach an entire month, 1-1,for $200. Every day.

Now, that's what I charge for 20 minutes 1-1 coaching.

1 month <> 20 minutes.

2.  Used to search for leads everywhere

Understand which platform / area / place has the highest number of qualified leads and spend more time there!

3. Thought that by posting content, clients will come

Cold outreach is often frowned on, yet it's the most powerful client acquisition strategy especially when starting out.

4. Going SOLO and YOLO

Worked my ass off alone, and thought it was super cool to go to bed at 3 am and wake up at 7.

The grind can make you blind. Value your health, hire and collaborate!

5. Ignoring the power of social media

It's literally the easiest way for you to get awareness and start making money.

I used to go and knock on doors, while I could on 10x more virtual doors!

6. Investing without validating a business idea

Whether you're selling a...
