Scrolling through your Instagram and Facebook feeds can sometimes feel like wading through a sea of advertisements. Every third or fourth post is a sponsored ad peddling wonder creams, weight loss teas, workout programs, or whatever. Also, your favorite celebrities are cashing in; using their platforms to push products. And for good reason!
Social Media is the new frontier for how we shop. Every year billions of dollars in retails sales are generated through platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. People are not only researching established brands and engaging with them on social media, they are discovering new brands.
But jumping into retailing through social media can often seem overwhelming. How can I make money if I don’t have a huge following? How do I let people know about my business without seeming pushy or constantly “selling” to my friends? Do I have to spend hours every day creating and distributing content to stay relevant? IS THIS EVEN WORTH IT?
The answer is YES! Social media is a great place to build your personal or business brand, create and engage with an audience, and make money. The great thing about social media is that you don’t have to be Insta-famous to generate revenue on the platforms. There are a few tips and tricks that we have learned from building online fanbases for musicians that can work for you and your business.
So how do you get started?
Step #1 – Learn from the Experts
Conquer Entertainment has had years of experience building successful social media platforms that have created revenue for artists. While most of us were still playing with the poke function on Facebook, our CEO Amanda Ridinger was figuring out how to build a fanbase, curate interesting content, and monetize it. And there are two opportunities coming up for you to pick their brains about how you can use social media to build your online brand and benefit your business. The first is the Conquer Entertainment Breakout session during MAIC 2020. This virtual session, will walk you through the paces of Lifestyle Marketing, and show you some amazing free tools that you should be using to expand your business on social media.
During the breakout you will also get a hands-on workshop, where you will learn how to create engaging content and learn how to run a fun and successful campaign that is tailored for your business. We will also show you how to keep these campaigns going to increase your brand recognition on social media and boost your audience. All of the campaigns created during the breakouts and those that continue to apply what you’ve learned, will be entered into our amazing Lifestyle Marketing Contest! And our first prize is a one-on-one phone call with the CEO of Market America, JR Ridinger, where you can learn from the online sales King himself!
And if that’s not enough, make sure you sign up for our two-day influencer marketing training! Here we will walk you through all of the best inside information about lifestyle and influencer marketing, including the 5 key strategies to getting your brand noticed online.
