The Power of Videos and Blogging
Videos and blogging are two very powerful mediums for building your business. Videos allow you to be present 24 hours a day and build a relationship with potential business partners and customers.
If no one knows you exist it is tough to build a business and while old fashioned hitting the streets and calling people up on the phone still works and works very well it is not the method for me. I remember my early days of MLM when Amway found me, we had home meetings and called friends and family and did cold calls.
I hated doing that and most people do and that’s why it’s super powerful to do videos and blog. Think about it for a second, people finding your videos and blog posts instead of you being the hunter you become the hunted.
It takes work but it is worth it in the long run, if you only focus on the old fashioned way when you are not doing it your business is not growing. If you have videos and blog posts out there it doesn’t matter what time of the day it is, it doesn’t matter if you are on vacation people can still find you and become a customer or join your business.
I don’t want you to get the wrong idea, people have and still will be extremely successful calling people on the phone and hitting the streets but for most people it just doesn’t make sense. If you are a parent and are also working a job on top of your business like me there is just not enough time in the day or at least if you want your children to know who you are.
If people can find you and you become consistent at putting up content and are using capture pages to collect leads you can focus on building relationships with multiple people at the same time who eventually over time will become customers or business partners or they will opt out of your list either way you will only be contacting people who are interested in what you have to offer.
Blogging and video help you build a relationship with people all around the world around the clock. It is exciting when you are able to impact people’s lives around the world. Now I know you may be saying but I don’t want to get in front of the camera or I don’t know what to blog about. You can do slide presentations through Google Hangouts and just talk, you don’t have to be on camera. On ideas for blogging just think about things you are interested in or about solutions for problems people have, if you can solve problems you will never want for anything.
Get yourself out there and let people know you exist and work on giving them great content so they have a reason to come back. We only get better at this through consistency so don’t beat yourself up or just sit there and do nothing because you think your content is not good enough.
When you get your first customer or business partner through a blog post or video you will be hooked and another added perk when you are consistent at videos and blogging and go to an industry event people that don’t do it will look at you like you are a rock star. Have fun with it!
You got this my friend!
