Show Them the Money!
Tell people how much money you make selling a product or service. I love to hear how much money a business is making. I have happily shown what sales I’ve made marketing over the years. Share your success with a few dollar signs! That’s a post that will shine!
I’ve Got Something for You!
Want to knock it out of the park? Give away something of value with your post! One of my top post has a free social media marketing template. I gave away a template and doubled my list in 2 months!
Be the hero and share the tools you use most often in your business. You will be shock at what others don’t know that you can share. Share which tools save time or money. If it increased your sales tell them by how much and use a graph as a visual. You will get more views and sign up to your list while your readers get important information. Everyone wins!
Can You keep a Secret?
Share a list of resources that helped you to succeed or reach a goal. That kind of post will turn a head. Tell them the secret to your sauce. That is just what I’ve done for almost a year. People wanted to know how I got my blog Alexa score under 100k in 90 days so I shared! WHY would I give away the secret? Because those that can pay someone else to do it for them will. Those that like to do it themselves can use the information. No sale will be lost and a loyal following will be gained. It’s all good!
