First off, can we just take a moment to acknowledge how incredible this journey has been? We’re at Episode 174, and I am overflowing with gratitude for each and every one of you. Your support, your love – it’s what keeps this movement alive and thriving.

Now, let’s get right into the heart of today’s discussion: “Message Ignored? The Real Reason You’re Not Building a Following.” Get ready, because we’re about to uncover some game-changing insights.

The Frustration of Being Unheard

Alright, let’s get real. You’ve got a message that’s not just important, it’s vital. You’ve poured your heart and soul into your work, but somehow, it feels like your words are vanishing into thin air. Maybe you’ve even found yourself spending endless hours on social media, trying to gather followers and enroll them in your offerings, only to see minimal results.

Believe me, you’re not alone.

A Personal Journey of Finding My Voice

I vividly remember a time when I felt like I was shouting into the void. I had this burning message, a purpose that was my North Star, but it seemed like no one was listening. It felt like I was spinning my wheels on social media, trying to get noticed. It’s frustrating, disheartening, and it can make you question if you’re on the right path.

You Are Seen, You Are Heard

But here’s the truth, my friend: you are not invisible, and your message is not falling on deaf ears. There’s a missing link, a piece of the puzzle that, once discovered, will change everything.

The Key Ingredient: Visibility

So, what’s this missing ingredient? It’s something called visibility. It’s not about spending hours upon hours on social media, trying to amass followers who might not even be your ideal audience. It’s not about shouting from the rooftops or being everywhere at once. It’s about strategic, intentional visibility.

The Power of Finding Your People

Let’s start with finding your people. It’s not about amassing a large following, but about connecting with the right individuals who resonate with your message. These are the ones who will become your most devoted supporters and champions.

Choosing Your Platform: Podcasting, YouTube, and Pinterest

The best platforms for creating consistent, evergreen visibility are podcasting, YouTube, and Pinterest marketing. These are all SEO-driven platforms that people turn to when they have a problem or want to learn more about something. The idea is that your content offers insight into the solution.

The Truth About Social Media Platforms

Creating a content universe that drives actual traffic to your site, not just likes on an app, is key. The truth is that these apps are not designed to have you move off the platform.

Pivoting for Success

So, what might not be working for you in building your movement? We’ll explore actionable steps to pivot:

  • Choose an SEO-driven hub for your content universe.
  • Create weekly content (at a minimum) to drive traffic and build authority.
  • Get your voice out there – guest write for content magazines in your niche, reach out for podcast interviews (with you as the interviewee), collaborate with others in your niche.
  • Communicate consistently with your community via email marketing. No, email is not dead but alive and kicking!

Before we wrap up today’s episode, I want to leave you with this: Your message matters. Your voice is needed. And together, we’re going to make sure it’s heard.

Thank you for being a part of this incredible community. Remember, you are seen, you are heard, and you are making a difference.
