As a beginner, the first and advisable thing to do is, after finding a platform to join, the next is to find a NICHE. What is a NICHE? This refers to the area topic or product you want to advertise. These are generally categorized into three bodies: HEALTH, WEALTH/FINANCE, TRAVEL, RELATIONSHIP, and FITNESS. Choose a preferable niche among those mentioned above and research before going into promoting and advertising.
How do I promote this product?
The easiest way to promote and showcase these products is through social media, such as Whatsapp, Facebook, TikTok, Telegram, Instagram, Pinterest, Quora, etc. These mediums play a major role in our everyday lives because most of our time is spent visiting social platforms, and this will inevitably reach millions of people.
2. Another way that can be used to promote this product is through word of mouth.
By opening conversations with friends and family, we can express how this product could solve their problems.
How do I reach out when I have few followers?
This is where social media advertisement comes into play; we normally call this ad. These are ways of reaching a larger audience, and these ads are divided into two: Paid ads and organic traffic.
Adverts: This is a way of generating customers (LEADS) to where you can lecture them about the product or attract an audience to what you are promoting. As I mentioned, they are divided into two, which I will discuss.
1. PAID ADVERTS: This is a medium whereby you pay Facebook to help you push whatever content or product description to the public; on this advent, you intend to reach out to more people and attract more customers. But those who are just startups and can not afford a Facebook advertisement can try the second option.
2. ORGANIC LEADS: This medium goes with you reaching out to people by expanding your space through Facebook groups and engaging in Facebook communities. In this case, you can get the opportunity to build a very large audience where they can know, love, and trust you. Beginners are advised to use this and grow their open space.
How do I scale up as a beginner?
There are no special skills in this business model; it refers to the physical transaction we do each day; the more you thrive in this model, the more you become at the strategies implied in this skill.
