Episode 46 Show Notes – Relationship Marketing
In episode 46 of the Life Boss: Becoming Unstoppable podcast, she shares with you important steps to start applying game-changing strategies to grow your customer base:
- Identify what are your values and have them as your true compass.
- Share in social media a mix of
(a) curated content around topics that you and your tribe value and used them as conversation starters, and
(b) created content by you add value to the conversation but that relates to your service.
- Build a library of hot topics and curated topics that are important to you. That way you will have content when you feel less than inspired.
- Create a library of your core content so that you are consistently presenting your services and products in social ways. This is where you really have to tune to this episode.
- Engage with your community not only on social media posts but also strategically via direct messages. Don’t forget to share free resources that add them to your list.
