I’m going to reveal a closely guarded secret that you won’t hear from anyone else . . .

Too many businesses never see a dime from their social media marketing.

Don’t let that be you. I’m going to show you exactly how to make money from your social media marketing.

These tactics aren’t about engagement, relationships, or fans. They’re about profiting from the time you spend marketing your business.

Follow these steps and you will see a huge return on your social media marketing.

1. Develop Your Social Media Marketing Strategy in 60 Seconds

2. Build Your Online Store

Once you’ve got your strategy developed, you’re ready to start making sales. Even if you’re a local business, having an online store can be an additional revenue stream for you.

Building an online store can be a nightmare: it’s the most difficult part of having any online presence, as there are multiple moving pieces to it, and if you’re new to the process, it’s easy to make the wrong decision. You need to identify whether you’ll take PayPal, credit cards, be PCI compliant (don’t know what this is?), and more.


3. Get More Sales from the Website You’ve Already Got

What if you’re doing social media marketing and have an online store, but you’re not seeing much in the way of sales?

You’re not alone.

We see this often for our social media services clients. They can’t figure out why they’re not making more money from their business (time for some tough love here). It’s usually because their website isn’t doing its job.

No one likes to hear that. It’s like saying “your baby is ugly.” You’ve spent a lot of money on your website, and you’re proud of it. I get it. I’ve been there. But you need to understand what website elements you need to have to actually make money from it.

Big Secret: most web designers have no idea what these elements are. They have a formula for making websites that works for them, not necessarily for you.

Tips like these and significantly more are covered in Socialmediaonlineclasses.com


4. Automate Parts of Your Social Media Marketing

Your time is valuable and you need to spend it on the tasks that are profitable. Small business owners have too many demands on their time to waste it on tasks they can automate.

I’m a big fan of taking the menial parts of marketing and putting them on auto-pilot. It saves me time, but more importantly, saves my brain for the more important decisions in my business, allowing me to focus on those.

In Socialmediaonlineclasses.com, you get classes on every major social network, infographics, webinars, and 1:1 coaching with me. I hope to see you inside Socialmediaonlineclasses.com.
