This episode is all about the power and potential of social media for entrepreneurs. I share with you the realities of fame on these platforms, stressing that massive following doesn’t equate to revenue.

Building your business using social media might not be easy, but I’m here to guide you through it. Let’s connect, learn, and grow together!

(0:00:00) – Building Fame and Branding in Business (8 Minutes)
I discuss how to get more views on social media. I explain that followers don’t necessarily translate to dollars and that it doesn’t matter how many followers you have if they’re not engaging with your content and buying from you. I give examples of people who have built and manufactured their own fame on social media and explain the difference between the two. Ultimately, I emphasize the importance of showing up as a person with your brand and explain that what makes you different is you and how you market it.

Creating engaging content and having a good hook is essential for getting viewers to stick around and watch your content.

The importance of writing a good hook and making sure it is visible on the screen, and how the length of the content affects the algorithm should not be overlooked. A free resource of hooks to help people start their content is available.
