Feeling like you are stuck where you are right now in social media and not getting any real results like you see other people doing? Well I was in the same position.
Felt like I was posting consistently and doing everything required for a strong social media profile and had been for around a year but wasn't seeing any real results yet.
I was posting at the best times everyday, using the best hashtags and engaging with other accounts. But still no real large growth or even large engagement on the page to help create loyal customers.
I had to be doing something wrong but I just couldn't figure it out...
Until one day I was looking deeper into the accounts that were getting high engagement, but weren't celebrities, and noticed that almost all of them that had strong audiences were doing one thing that stood out to more...
They were focused on including their audience in what they were doing and engaging with them on a deeper level than just replying to comments!
How To Increase Your Engagement
How to large and even small accounts get so many leads from Instagram, when I was getting so few?
That's what I was asking myself....
And when I started to look deeper it all came down to their engagement on the accounts!
The more people that were liking and commenting on their pictures every time, the more sales they were getting no matter how big or small their account was!
After looking deeper into their accounts this is how I found they were increasing their engagement:
They were running competitions and giveaways where people had to like and comment on their posts to increase their community and get people coming back for more!
They were also featuring some of the comments on their posts in their stories to help people get recognized like a mini shout out for their community!
These were the main two things but they also had things like their own hashtag they made up or were responding with meaning to comments. Both seemed to be working very well at increasing engagement.
Would definitely recommend trying out some of these strategies, I have just started implementing them and they are working too good!!
Increasing Your Instagram Attention
Have to seem like you are everywhere.
This one is a little more tricky but very possible to master when you do it right.
Essentially you are either going to be paying to be promoted on others accounts through shout outs on their stories or posts.
With this strategy you are able to create a high quality edit or post that represents what your page stands for and then you can reach out to larger influencers accounts with 10k-100k+ followers and inquire about how much a paid promotion would be on their page.
The more followers they have the more a post on their page is going to be so decide on a budget and DM a ton of accounts asking what their prices are so you can find the most relevant accounts, with the most engagement at the best prices!
The next way you can do this is going to be through creating a contest on your page, where you give away a free product or service in return for their follow and engagement.
Like you would put a post up on your story saying this and then start reaching out to other accounts to see if you could give them a free product or service if they promoted your giveaway on their page.
This allows you to grow your following and engagement fast, when you reach out to a large number of accounts, at little or no cost!
It's a new week, try some of these new strategies and lets get started making this dream life together!
Hope you enjoyed and learned something as usual.
Yes, you read that right.
Probably the most underrated thing when it comes to business even though it should be at the top of everyone's to-do or to work on list!
This one thing can single handedly bring you more leads, more sales and put more money int your pocket when you start to focus on it.
This one thing can also be very cost effective or even FREE if you play your cards right...
And guess what?
It is not a marketing or sales strategy like you are thinking it is. It is much bigger picture than that, which is why we need to open up our minds and start focusing on it!
Attention In Your Business
Yes, the thing you need to be focusing on is getting more attention to your business.
So, I guess it is kind of a marketing strategy but a more bigger picture one.
Because gaining attention isn't just to sell products, it is to build a community around a larger purpose that your brand stands for!
When you start creating this community you are able to build trust in the people that follow you and people buy from who they trust.
Attention is like the oxygen in your business, because without it nobody will know who you are and therefore you won't be able to sell any products or services.
It's not because your product or service isn't good, it's that nobody has heard of you. Even if you had the best product ever, if nobody knows about it you won't sell any. It's simple business!
That is why I have recently switch to trying to get as much attention to the business as possible becuase that is what will sell in the long term.
Play the long term game because that is the game that wins!
How To Get More Attention To Your Business
One of the best ways to get attention to your business, and the one that I am going to focus on is both easy to do and free!
This method is through social media, and what better way because social media is where most people spend a lot of their time!
On social media, Instagram is one of my favorite platforms to leverage as it has a large and engaged user base!
Instagram allows you to direct message accounts which gives us the potnetial to work with and connect with similar accounts in your niche! This is how I recommend increasing your attention online!
Direct message these similar accounts and see if they want to feature your page for either a feature on your page or even something you can offer them such as a free product or service.
This way their followers will see you and you will start to be known across your niche when you keep popping up on all of these similar pages!
Offer value to them through a free product or service when you reach out asking for their promotion, otherwise there is a high probability they will turn you down since they aren't getting anything out of the deal!
Now it is going to be up to you to take action and start growing your online attention. That is they key to success. You can't just create a social media account and sit back to gain followers or let the money roll in. You have to put in the work to create an engaged community!
Hope you enjoyed this and are taking action towards growing the attention to your business or brand as we speak!
Super excited to announce this to you guys!
We have been working with a few different Instagram accounts recently to help create promotional packages at a great rate for those in the community of Profiting Tools!
The goal was to help you take that next step in business marketing and start social media marketing no matter how big or small your budget is!
We are all about helping you get to that next level in business and start taking the actions you need to and this is exactly how.
No more being confused on how to start social media marketing, the button is below to click and we can help create a promotional plan for you and your business, brand or even just your page!
'Exposure' by Profiting Tools
Yes our new growth programs are called Exposure... why because that is what is what you need if you are looking to sell more products or even just make more money.
More exposure means more attention and as Gary Vaynerchuk states, attention is like the oxygen to your business.
You need it to keep moving forward because without attention nobody will know who you are or what you do. No matter how good your product is, nobody will know about it. Simple as that.
So why not make sure people know about you and make sure you are being seen? How so? Well we can help with that!
Exposure helps you work with larger Instagram accounts to get feature on their story, in their feeds and have your link put in their bio to see!
This makes sure that more people are seeing your product or service than you are able to reach with just your account.
It also gets your content in front of an engaged audience to help increase your leads with more click throughs and hopefully increase your sales as well!
How This Will Benefit Your Brand/ Business
Instagram is one of the largest social media platforms out there with highly active users that have the potential to see your products. Why not try and reach the maximum amount of people through your account as you can?
Well that is what I am here to help you with.
Like I said above, by working with larger accounts you will get your products or services in front of more people and ultimately increase your leads to your website!
More leads will lead to more sales in the long run.
You have to start maiing investments into our business if you want to see some real growth! This is your chance as we tried to create price points for every budget!
Invest now and see the returns in the future.
Click the button below to start making that investment in yourself and lets get started finding you more leads, more sales and more money!
Thanks for the support as always guys,
While I am in no way getting unmatched results in my businesses, I am on the journey to finding successes in what I am doing, just like many of you are and I thought I would share with you one o the things that helped my results when I started practicing it in not only my business but my life as well!
And probably to your surprise, this is not some new marketing or sales strategy.. This is actually a habit you can practice weekly that can get you results!
While the 10x rule, where you take 10x more action in everything that you do, is probably one of the most effective strategies, this is not far behind and is focused around time management.
This strategy is planning out your week day by day.. seems simple right? Well it i easy to say and hard to do because most people don't sit down and take the time to do it.
The One Habit That Will Improve Your Results
Here is how I practice this habit at least. Every Sunday I take time near the end of the night to reflect on the past week and then figure out what I can improve and short term goals for the coming week.
During this time I also take time to plan out each day of that week with things that need to get done in order for me to be getting closer to my goals and advancing that week. This makes sure that you don't stay stagnant and are progressing each and everyday towards your goals, with a clear plan in sight.
When you wake up with a plan you start understanding what you need to do right away to get closer to your goals and you don't waste time figuring out what to do in order to get closer to your goals today.
Sitting down on Sunday, before the week gets busy, allows you to see the bigger picture while planning your days.
When you try and plan the night before you might be tired, feeling rushed because you have other stuff to do still and rush through your day planning because it's low priority.
Just make it easy on yourself and try it on Sunday for a few weeks so you day isn't as busy as trying during the week. You will notice a difference in the week as you start and build momentum right when you get up by knowing and then executing on exactly what needs to get done.
Another key here is to make the important activities and things you need to do in the beginning of the day if you can. This is because when you wait until later in the day then it is easier to get pushed off the place if you're too "busy" or you lose track of time.
When you setup your day so that the most important things are towards the beginning it makes sure they get done and then gives you the rest of the day to do lower importance activities!
So, try this today, take some time out of your Sunday night, you might not have had anything panned anyways so perfect, and focus on reflecting on your week.
What went well and what could be changed or improved?
Then figure out the bigger picture vision for your brand or business and then break that down into yearly, monthly and weekly goals so you can easily plan your week around these weekly goals.
Then write down, day by day, what needs to get done in order to meet your weekly goals.
And don't forget to write down the most important things earlier in the day so you make sure they get done. this was one of my biggest problems and still occasionally struggle with it...
I was doing all the easier/ less important things first just to get them done and it really wasn't pushing me towards my goals. I wasn't seeing many results before I started doing important tasks first. But once it switched the results slowly started coming in!
Hope you guys take this to heart and try this out tonight or whenever you are reading this!
Thanks for the support again,
This is going to be a quick post becasue it was just something that came to my mind in the last few days to rte about and am I in no way perfect on social media. This was something that I was working on improving so I thought you guys might enjoy it as well...
Anyone can follow/ unfollow or use hashtags to get followers on Instagram.. but the real question is how do you create an engaged following?
A following that will click your links, that trusts you, that wants to hear what you have to say and a following that wants to buy from you... how do you create that?
Followers mean shit.
I see so many accounts with high follower counts but little engagements on their pictures. What is the point honestly?
They don't get likes or comments on their pictures and therefore won't be able to sell through their social media, the ultimate goal for most of us because why spend so much time on it if it doesn't make you money? Money rules the world you know...
I was stuck in a similar position: Was slowly gaining followers but wasn't seeing much engagement and wasn't having much luck with conversions through social media... I have to be missing something here I thought.
So I started observing other, more engaged, accounts and seeing what they were doing that I wasn't doing. I saw they were doing almost the same thing as me and got confused right away util I started to dig deeper and see that they were focused more on engagement then putting up a many posts throughout the day.
They were focused on providing value and engaging with their audiences while I was responding to comments but it wasn't a main focus of mine..
That is where the mindset has to change: Care about them and they will care about you. It's that simple!
Here is what you can do and what I am working more and more on each day!
Strategies To Increase Social Media Engagement
Here are some of the strategies I am trying out and what is working best to increase my engagement so far.
The first one is simply caring about your responses to comments on your post. Don't just put a smiley face or an emoji... give them a real response back. Ask a question, drive engagement.
The next one is through Instagram stories and is like running a mini contest through there. Encourage people to leave their opinions on your last post and tag a friend for a chance to win something of value from you for free. This piece of value should be some information that you have knowledge about and others might not like your favorite tips for ______. Or a free product or service from your business! Choose one person each time to win these prizes and repeat.
Another strategy is through Instagram stories as well, and that is thanking people fro their support of your page. Take a picture of the comments on your page and give them a mini shout out on your story. They are likely to DM you with love back and that can start conversations that build trust on your page.
I hope you guys took some value out of this post and can start to implement some of these strategies to increase your page engagement! And I know it was mostly focused on Instagram but that is one of the main platforms right now and a lot of the strategies can be applied on other platforms as well!
Have a great (and productive) weekend,
We are never depending on one income stream if you recall from last blog because we don't want to be controlled by any one thing.
What if that income stream slows down or the market becomes too saturated? or the product goes out of style?
When you have more than one income stream whether that be from a job and your side hustle or even just two income sources within your business, it helps you diversify and maximize your profit potential.
How exactly do you add this income stream though?
As with most things in life it is easy to talk about and had to actually start doing or implementing!
So that is my goal with this, to help you start implementing something in your life that will leave you with a way to start taking action right away!
The eBay Hustle
One of the first things that I did to start making money online was this strategy, the strategy that turned popular once Gary Vaynerchuk started talking about it, I started doing when I was sophomore year in high school.
This strategy is super easy to understand and implement and can make you money starting right away!
And that strategy is selling on eBay!
All you need to do is setup an eBay and PayPal account and start selling!
Sell anything you have just laying around your house or aren't using anymore and make money for things that you aren't even using anymore!
This alone has helped me make thousands of extra dollars from electronics, clothes and products that I just had laying around and wasn't using..
Well it gets better because eventually you are going to run out of things that you aren't using... so you start looking outside of your house for stuff.
Hit up the local Goodwill or Thrift store and look at things such as electronics or clothes that sell for good money on eBay and buy it there, flip it for a profit on eBay.
The electronics cabinet at goodwill has some great deals if you are looking!~ That is what worked best back when I used this strategies.
Gary Vaynerchuk also mentions going to garage sales because this is where you can find the products for cheapest as people are just looking to just get rid of their stuff and usually don't know what it is that they are selling.
This strategy has to be one of the best ones to get that little startup money you need or even to add an income stream outside of your normal job that has the potnetial to bring a couple extra thousand dollars to your pocket each month!
I have seen clients both use this for startup money as well as friends or people just use this strategy to add some money to their life.
It's simple and easy. Usually the best things are this way we just like to over complicate them.
This is a great way to get some startup money for your business. Now if yo are looking for a more personal way to start your business, me and my team would love to help you out!
We have years of experience helping people like you turn their passions into a business or even just add a revenue stream through them and would love to help you out as well.
We are helping people just like you who are passionate and driven yet just aren't sure on the next stage of their life help them realize their future and get started working towards it.
Let's get you working towards your next stage in life and start adding income to your life and get you one step closer to your freedom. It would be my honor to work with you!

Imagine if your primary source of income were to go away..
What would you be left with? Would you be able to support the ones you love or even yourself?
How long would you be able to survive.
It doesn't matter if you own a business or are in a job with a constant paycheck.
Times will come where you are faced with the hardship surrounding that income.... whether its slow sales one year or even getting laid off from your job.
Shit happens. But you can be in control when shit happens and not let it consume your life.
How you might ask?
Well by adding income streams to your life, whether its a side hustle or a business you take on outside of work to make that extra money. Hell, it could even be taking on another business opportunity or just adding an income stream to an existing business.
This puts you in control of your income and not dependent on anyone else or one single income stream. That is a bad idea and while it is necessary to focus on your one business while you are growing it once you get to a comfortable level where you can still grow that add some income streams to that business.
It keeps you changing and adapting and not dependent on one income stream or product to sell.
Then if that product or service slows on sales one month, your sales can stay steady and growing with other products or services!!
How To Add an Income Stream
All this talk about adding an income stream leaving you confused about how to actually add one or what you are going to sell or make money from?W ell I don't blame you, it's not always obvious what to sell or where to make that extra money.. but don't sweat that's what me and my team are here for...
Here are some just basic ways to start adding income to your life that I used when I first started finding money to start Profiting Tools:
-Go to goodwill or any thrift store, search for things that would be easy to resell on eBay for a profit and do that a couple of times per week!
-Try looking at your passions and see if you can sell a product or help people with a service based around those.
-If you are running a business try brainstorming ideas to add a new product or service to your business that will benefit your existing customers.
-If you really need quick money try finding a busy running or hiking trail on a hot day and start to sell cold water... works very well, have had soo many clients try this and even on the beach as well!
Those were just a few ideas you could do to think about adding that income stream right away, better to start thinking now than just knowing you need to add one and never taking action to actually add one!
I will touch on more specific ideas in the next couple blogs where I am going to be focusing on two of my favorite!
If you are looking to get ahead of the game though me and my team have two options to help you add an income stream to your life!
The first option I have for you is just a small investment of $10 in yourself each month to get the guide we put out based around profiting and the best strategies and tools that month to do so.
That is called our Profit Guide which is a monthly magazine that I put out to help you start taking the first steps towards your success... it's the magazine you go to when you know you want more out of life or more money but don't know where to start.
This is your start.. click below and save some money each month on the guide:)
The next option we have is a more personalize and tailored approach to making money for you and your business.
My team and I can help you ad an income stream around your passions to make more money on the side and we can even help you add one to your business and find strategies that will help you grow.
We will personally work with you to find these strategies and then start to create a plan of action around them for your business.

Feeling like you aren't getting the results in business, or even not sure how to start making that extra money for your family vacation or to pay some bills?
Common situation that many people run into as money controls everything around us and if you don't know how to make more of it you can feel stuck in life
I have been in the same position, and am still on my journey to wealth right along with you because it never stops, we just grow and set bigger and better goals.
I sat for years not knowing what to do to make money but constantly knowing that I wanted more out of life. Sitting in class, day dreaming about the world out there and all the possibilities that are out there for things to do outside of "the normal job."
I started trying out everything from selling extra stuff on eBay to running a small electronics eBay store and even trading stocks to make extra money. I also started many small businesses and started to figure out what works and what doesn't work in relation to both business and adding a side income.
It takes more work than many think to add a side income, well worth it though as the payoff in both freedom will be well worth it for us all in the end.
This is an part of the journey of life and entrepreneurship that we all go through and getting through can be a little easier when you learn solid strategies around how to grow your business or even just add that income stream to your life to bring in that extra money each month.
