10 Tools or Social Media Sites that I Use to Grow my Two Businesses (Part 1)

Chioma March 2011 169.JPG

Have you ever wondered what TOOLS or Social Media websites that I use to RUN my two businesses before? (My Pageant business and my PR and Media business). If so you are in LUCK my beautiful friend as I would love to share some of my favourite platforms with you. I hope that you find this post to be valuable.  

1) Instagram: 
I love using Instagram to engage with my fans and followers and to connect with inspirational people! Along with attracting clients. I feel that it's a great social media platform to really showcase what your brand is all about. I upload images, videos i.e. I used to a video now and then called "Success tip of the day" which many people told me that they loved. With Instagram it's also important to use the right hashtags which are really in line with the audience that you are trying to target. So for example when I post something that I feel is specifically for female entrepreneurs I will use relevant hashtags such as #ladyboss #bossbabes #workfromhome #femaleentrepreneur #success #businesstips #girlboss  #successstrategies #womenempowerment. 
I usually post around 5-6 times a week.
 

2) Snap Chat:  
I LOVE this platform, it's wonderful to share updates and to connect with people in pretty much (close enough to) real time. I love the fact that my followers and friends on Snap Chat can see what I was doing just 5 minutes ago! I tend to use Snap chat to show my potential clients the products and services that I have, sneak peaks into behind the scenes of my business.
I also show myself doing fun things such as shopping, karaoke and visits to the Beach. Snap chat is all about being light hearted. Add me today "TheQueenChioma". 

3) Facebook Live:
I love streaming live on Facebook! It's so cool and so much fun, a great way to connect with my fans, friends, family, potential clients and followers in real time. I use this platform to basically teach or train my audience. I create high value content on topics such as "How to Grow your Following on Social Media". It can be a great platform for selling your products and services too as you can literally present live workshops or live presentations similar to the style of a webinar and promote your amazing stuff. I can't tell you how many people have let me know how inspiring, motivational my Facebook live streams are. Hearing this kind of wonderful feedback makes me take it seriously.  

4) Corel Video Pro Editing Software: 
I love this editing software and I have been using it for years, I have created 75% of my videos on YouTube using this software. I am also always upgrading to the next new version. At hand they have launched version x9 and I am yet to upgrade from version 8, but I don't really feel the need to upgrade yet as it's so good as it is! I make literally nearly all of my videos using corel. It's a very professional video editing software and I find it incredibly easy to use. I would say that it is in between iMovie and Final Cut Pro. It also reminds me of Adobe Video Editing Software.
It also comes with a feature where you can record your screen which is great for creating presentations or videos for e-courses.  I would encourage you visit the corel website to explore a variety of softwares and download a free trial today! You will thank me later. 

5) Canva:
This has been one of the BEST discoveries for me in terms of revamping my brand as you can create the CUTEST graphics ever using Canva which is super if you are not a graphic designer, because let's face it, not everyone is a graphic designer and it can be expensive to hire someone to do your graphics (in some cases). If you want to create wonderful quotes that look gorgeous, for your Instagram posts, Facebook, twitter etc and create things like e-books, presentations for your webinars or for live presentations I suggest that you sign up to Canva right away and take FULL advantage of the wonderful features. They have some paid options such as Canva for work which is great for branding kit and for consistency. They also have images that you can use for just $1 in your posts.  Visit Canva today at canva.com

And that's 1-5 so far lovely friends...

5 Ways to Make Money Through Social Media:

Chioma March 2011 132.JPG

Dear Successful Friend, 

A couple of weeks ago, I did a live stream on Facebook, on personal page and the response was beautiful! My friends and followers were so engaged with the content that I was sharing and it made me think that...wow I need to really share some of my tips and strategies on Social Media and Making money on my BLOG too as I'm sure you might just be the kind of person that wants to take everything you do on Social Media to the next level and actually make more money, so here we go: 

1) Update your Profile (on all platforms of Social Media):
Have a really inspiring profile so that people can contact you, for amazing opportunities, contracts, work, interviews etc. If you want to make money using Social Media it's important that you have a online presence that you feel proud of! So start making sure that you present the best version of you i.e. photos, videos, bio, content etc that you make you stand out. 

2) Add More Value on Social Media:
Turn everything into how you can help people rather than just posting on you, you, you. Some of the things that you can do to add more includes delighting friends or fans with fun updates, helping people in the private facebook groups that you are in, inspiring people with inspirational quotes, sharing interesting videos, answering questions, participating in discussions, teaching people, entertaining people, being a great example etc. Doing these things will make you stand out as one of the go to people on Social Media which can lead to amazing opportunities, abundance publicity and bookings. 

3) Create Products and Services and Promote them on DILIGENTLY on Social Media:
As mentioned above, if you truly want to make money on Social Media you need to ask yourself a big question and the question is this "What exactly am I selling?" If you are not selling and marketing your products and services on Social Media or offline believe me...it will be VERY HARD for you to make money on Social Media. Yes opportunities and lucky breaks could come your way don't get me wrong but to make consistent money and to hit your online income goals you are going to have to do something outside of the box to attract those clients and customers. Examples include i.e. Hosting cooking classes, becoming a freelance tutor, doing photography, becoming a video editor, making films, organising workshops/seminars/talent shows, selling tickets online to your online events i.e. a paid workshop on "How to Find the Man of your Dreams", you could perform at events (let everyone know that you are available to sing at weddings, shows, parties etc, sell books/audio/ programmes on your website or on other websites, sell old clothes on E-bay etc Get serious and creative when it comes to this as this could be the ONE big thing that you need to start doing to see a BIG difference in your life and business.  
 
4) Start Blogging and (or) Make Videos on YouTube:

You will see money come to you like a river if you do this very WELL! Video is one of the best ways to promote yourself as it creates this feeling of "like, trust, know". Your fans and followers will start to like you, trust you and feel as if they know you. Sometimes Facebook posts just is't enough, you need to go deeper and give the people something visual to watch! A great video! Some video ideas includes tutorials, tips and tricks, share your story, an advert, acting, comedy, live streaming, promoting a product or service, educational content, Q&A and the list goes on. 

5) Engage with People/Reach out to Potential Clients:
Building relationships is key if you truly want to have a thriving business online or offline. Your people skills will determined so much of your success. So it's time to start truly connecting with your fans and followers in more powerful ways than EVER before. You can host your own private Facebook group, ask for testimonials, offer discovery calls or coaching calls to your potential clients, ask for referrals, Don't keep yourself a secret if you have something great to offer. If you truly see yourself Teaching a class one day or Hosting live events or perhaps you see yourself Performing at Concerts and shows...if yes...then now is the time to really seek for engage, respond to comments and show your people some LOVE! Many of my fans have connected me to i.e. Magazine interviews, podcast interviews, speaking gigs and singing opportunities. Some have recommended my Beauty Pageant to girls and women that later signed up to be in my pageant. So don't neglect your audience, build them up and you will see your numbers on Social Media grow along with your finances. 

And there you have it! LALALALA, yes I did just sing LALALALA in this blog post (I must be happy or something) So my friend...I hope you found this USEFUL and I hope it helps you to achieve BIG SUCCESS! Thanks so much once again for reading.
