Do you find that you’re comparing yourself to people that are MUCH more advanced than you?
Me too Daniel-san, me too.
But as you see in the video above (one of my favorites) it’s not necessarily about how wide your audience is.
Gary Vaynerchuk talks about how going deeper (hee hee that’s what she said, dear God I’m a child…) with your existing community rather than just wider can be more beneficial in zee long run.
Perhaps it’s because you think that you’re bigger than you actually are.
But you ain’t James Dean playa and neither am I.
I don’t even smoke so yeah lol.
Man, I don’t know how many times I hear or see things like:
“How do I get my first 100 subscribers?”“How do I get a bunch of traffic to my blog?”“How can I make $5,000 a month online?”
It’s funny that in a way, sometimes people are focusing on climbing fucking Mt. Everest without even having taken the first step!
Perhaps you should focus on that first no?
It may be that you’re struggling to get more or any of the above, but my question to you is?
What about your existing following?
Do you have ANY followers at all?
Have you gotten your first subscriber or customer?
If not (excusez mon français) but…I’d like you to kindly shut up f**k up and focus on growing a following first!What? I said excuse me all fancy like lol.
A Virtual Fistful Of Tips
Sales will come from building a following, it doesn’t matter what platform you use.
I recommend you build an email list in the process, but if that sounds daunting right now then…
I recommend you start building a following where there are hungry buyers BEFORE you’re even selling a damned thing, if you don’t know what you’re doing at all quite yet.
This reminds of something Russell Brunson says (I may be butchering this because I’m going by memory):

Me personally I’ve used a business-orientated Facebook profileand combining the power of FB groups and FB live videos.
It’s just too damned easy to get started by doing this.
Look, it may be that that (hmm that’s how I said this out loud lol) one connection may become a customer.
May even be for life.
Perhaps you befriend someone that knows WAY more than you do (and has a huge following) and they’ll promote your next product launch JUST because they like what you’re doing online.
This way you don’t have don’t have to go spam every goddamn Facebook Jv group and beg people to promote your launch.
Shit I know I’m not the only one annoyed by this, and frankly my dear I don’t give a damn.
Sorry I got distracted lol.
What I mean is that an organic following is more long-term than trying any of this fly-by-night kinda shit.
I hope this helps you see that you should put out as much good information out there as possible so you can grow your audience and start networking or “digging your well before your thirsty”.
Find people you want to model your business after.
Start finding potential customers.
Build a relationship with both because in the long run it’s gonna make you more money.
Look if you’re still struggling to get it going, I recommend you just start shutting everything off and focus on getting really good or good enough at ONE thing.
If you’d like a little help with that I suggest you check out my Zero To Hero In 30 Days video series below this very post.
Thank you for reading this lil ol’ blog post of mine.
