Search engine optimization is what makes people search for you. If you are a life coach, for example, you want your content to appear when someone searches “life coach”, “happiness training”, “performance coaching,” or “business coaching.”

You should be able to draw on the audiences of others when you’re starting your business. Why? It’s frustrating to look at the same five followers who aren’t buying, and it gets boring.
You can find “micro-influencers”, aka ordinary people with a lot of “pull” (over 3,000 followers), and trade with them. While some will not work with you unless you pay them, others will barter with you.
Barter is a term that’s used to describe an alternative payment or arrangement. If an influencer offers to promote your course by posting four times per month and you don’t have the time, but you know that the influencer requires someone to edit their podcast, and you are skilled at this, that might be the exchange.
This is called bartering. It’s something I do all the time, especially on Instagram. It works. It works. So think about what skills you have and how you can help others.
Instead of trying to sell your products, focus on helping other people. People are always in our inboxes. The most memorable messages are those that express humanity, kindness, and mutual benefit.

You can send them inspirational blog posts, new offers, and “Happy Anniversary” messages. How can you do this for 500 people on Instagram Do you want to reach 500 people via DMs? Or would you prefer to just send one email to all of them? Email marketing allows you to keep up with your contacts.
Although it is hard work, you can still be an entrepreneur. We often glorify entrepreneurship and the rewards, but we tend to overlook the hard work that it takes to get those rewards.
Do you recall your last job? How did you do “this” while someone else did it? You are now the person who runs all the departments. It won’t be easy at first but it is possible.
You can’t see to the right or left to see what others are doing if you don’t know how to look and not get discouraged by what you see.
Don’t be discouraged by people who started their businesses six months to one year ago and have become millionaires. Also, don’t feel like you’re failing because you’re not a millionaire as many people claim.
You are right. You are right on target. Farmers don’t reap the fruits of their labors in the same year they sow the seeds. This is your sowing season. If you have been doing it all by yourself, it might be time to hire a coach. Maybe you already have one and it’s time for a new one.
