You want to grow your audience. Awesome!

The key to making money with your online business is having a group of people who know, like and trust you enough to actually purchase your product or service (thanks captain obvious, right?).

When it comes to building your “tribe”, there are a variety of ways to reach people. The secret sauce is finding the one that works for you and executing it well. We’ve found two main ways to grow your audience online

  • investing money in paid ads (quicker)
  • investing time in organic social growth strategies (less $$)

While the organic route takes more time, it can be done with little to no investment, which makes it a great option for folks who are just starting out, or those who have a limited budget.

We have two recommendations when it comes to organic growth

  • Free Facebook Groups
  • Rocking it out on Instagram

Let’s start with Facebook Groups

The best place to start when you are looking to create a free Facebook group, is our Complete Guide to Creating a Facebook Group that Grows Your Business.

This guide was created by Jill and Josh Stanton from Screw the 9 to 5 – and when it comes to learning how to create and grow a FREE FB group to build your business, there is no two people better to show you the way.

Not only have they run their own successful free FB Group (with over 12,000 members) but they have mastered the art of the art & science of using free FB groups to grow your email list, build community and sell more of your products and programs (and teach others to do the same).

You can also hear them chat all things FB Groups with DSG on an episode of The Rise To The Top Podcast here.

But what about Instagram?

You might be thinking to yourself…wait a minute…isn’t Instagram just for the young and sexy? Or people in a “flashy” industry?

The answer is NOPE.

The fastest growing segment on Instagram is personality-based entrepreneurs and those who sell their expertise. EVERY industry from makeup experts to those who train high powered CEO’s.

Instagram has now become a new “business card” as people will often check your account before working with you, interviewing you, etc.

Instagram matters.

But, what’s the secret sauce to going from completely unknown to rolling in the raving fans AND the business?

Lauren Tickner is the resident expert when it comes to all things Instagram here at The Rise To The Top.  She has done an INCREDIBLE job branding herself, building a following and leveraging that following into a successful business (including online courses, training programs, etc.).

DSG invited her to come on The Rise To the Top Podcast to share her story. You can listen to it here “How a 21 Year Old Built up 129,000 Instagram Followers (and Leveraged it into a Successful Business)”

But how do I actually DO this?

So glad you asked.  There are a lot of free resources out there that you can piece together over time and test things through trial and error, or you can learn straight from the experts.
