I'm on a mission to make high-quality, tailored social media coaching accessible to the small business owner.
Social media is HARD, and managing your own business is already hard enough.
I can help.
Like many of you, my first experience with entrepreneurship came when I joined my first MLM/network marketing business. I was fresh out of college and already had NO idea how I was going to pay off my student loan debt. I ordered my kit, and about $150 of 'must-haves' that my upline told me would take my business 'to a whole other level.' I bought business cards. I did the vendor event thing. I hit up ALL of my friends and family to host a party for me or place an order. It just wasn't happening.
About a year ago, I decided to give it another shot, this time with a health and wellness MLM that I found after researching the various options. I loved the products, I felt great while I was using them, and I was excited to share them with my friends. I was so excited that, without even realizing it, I became THAT guy who posts nothing but facts and testimonials and special promotions we were running on my products. My social media feed was a never-ending stream of “PRODUCT, PRODUCT, PRODUCT, and “JOIN MY TEAM, JOIN MY TEAM, JOIN MY TEAM.” I was doing EXACTLY the same things that didn't work for me the first time, just with a different set of products. So I read absolutely EVERYTHING I could get my hands on that dealt with managing a successful network marketing business. I learned that many of the most successful online entrepreneurs utilize strategies that go completely against what many of my uplines and organizational leaders had taught me.
I implemented some changes and saw an IMMEDIATE impact on my social media. My likes increased, my comments increased, and my followers almost DOUBLED. I went from a 2.5% engagement rate (or the ratio of people liking/commenting on your posts to your total number of followers) to a near-30% engagement rate over the course of about 4-6 weeks. I was getting people, total strangers, sending me private messages about my business, and generating leads without having to chase them down myself! I was amazed!
It was then that I decided I HAD to share what I had learned with other people who were frustrated like I was. I know what it's like to feel like you're working SO hard and not making any progress. I've watched teammates and fellow distributors advance rank time and time again, making more and more money, while I struggle to make enough to cover my own product purchases. I've felt your pain, and I've been where you are. I launched my freelance social media consulting business in the beginning of September 2017, with the mission of bringing simple and effective social media strategy to the small business owner. And because I'm a firm believer in paying it forward, I wanted to create a service and pricing structure that would allow for regular folks to access this information without choosing between their business and their bills.
