3 Secrets to Rockstar Status
Ever wonder how you go from being a "nobody"...
To being a "somebody"?
How do you build a following?
Thousands, or tens of thousands, or more, raving fans?
Those people who will join you in whatever you're doing, or buy from you no matter what you're selling.
Do you ever look at a "big name" in the industry and wonder... "How did they get to be so well known?"
Or maybe you think they were just lucky. They were a born leader.
I can pretty much guarantee you that 99.9% of the people with massive followings worked their you-know-what's off to get there.
Good News: You can become a Rockstar too!
Bad News: It's going to take consistent, dedicated WORK. (I know... that's a four letter word.)
3 Secrets to Rockstar Status
Here are three things every "Rockstar" has done.
SECRET #1 - Be Prolific
People need to see you. They need to hear you. They need to get to know you.
You need to be popping up everywhere!
In their news feeds. Choose a platform and go all out. My preference is definitely LinkedIn.
Show up in posts, videos, articles, blogs.
Show up in their email inboxes.
Show up in their messages.
Create content that delivers value. It doesn't have to be long. Who has time to read pages of an article, or watch a 15 - 20 minute video on a regular basis?
SECRET #2 - Understand How To Use Persuasion
Blair Warren says in The One Sentence Persuasion Course...
People will do anything for those who encourage their dreams, justify their failures, allay their fears, confirm their suspicions, and help them throw rocks at their enemies.
So, if it's your dream to create a huge team in your Network Marketing business, or a following for your own business, you can do it!
It will take getting out of your comfort zone, probably in a big way. And it will take doing things differently than the way you've been doing them. But you can do it.
Maybe you've heard the saying...
Every master was once a disaster.
So if you're not where you want to be in your business, and you feel like you've failed so far...
Know that you're in very good company.
Because all of those "big names" were once where you are. I can guarantee you they've had their fair share of "disasters".
Let's face it...
For most of us, our parents didn't teach us how to be entrepreneurs.
We didn't learn in school how to do live video, write sales copy for emails, create posts, or close the sale.
And NO ONE is naturally good at all of this!
The "Rockstars" who make it look so easy, all had to learn skills and/or get help.
Which brings me to...
SECRET #3 - Use Your Strengths
As human beings, we all learn differently, communicate differently, and have different strengths and weaknesses.
Basically we're all audio, visual or kinesthetic learners. Know what area you're strongest in, and use it.
Recently, I was talking to a coaching client of mine, Elizabeth.
I've been encouraging her to do video, because frankly, if you want to really connect with people today, you pretty much have to do video.
Elizabeth was telling me she didn't know what to talk about... she wasn't comfortable... etc., etc., etc.
As we were talking, I was reviewing her LinkedIn profile.
And much to my surprise...
It turns out Elizabeth is a brilliant writer!
She already has over 50 articles on LinkedIn that she's pumped out just over the last couple of months.
So I showed Elizabeth how she could take any of her articles and turn them into a video.
Turns out, she's got TONS of ideas for video. And she knows just what to say!
If writing comes easily for you, write!
Then use what you've written for video.
If video is easier for you, do video...
And take what you've said and write it out for an email or article.
Don't spend too much time trying to turn yourself into a pretzel, mastering something that isn't a natural strength.
First, focus on what you do well and comes easiest to you.
If you'd like to start building that base of raving fans...
I've honestly found LinkedIn to be an untapped gold mine, and a great place to start to build a community of fans and followers.
So to help you understand the unique way you can use LinkedIn as a Network Marketer or Affiliate Marketer, I created the 60 Minute Power Recruiting for LinkedIn program.
