There are many different ways you can monetize your blog, website, Google Hangouts, and other online digital assets and platforms. However, it requires the right mindset, proper planning, goal setting and an integrated platform that serves your audience and community while helping you achieve your business and life goals.
Don’t just do social. Don’t just be social. Be socially relevant.
Unfortunately many business leaders hop online with the belief of “build it and they will come” or over simplify with such thoughts as “be social, engage, and the money will flow in.” Of course engaging with your audience online helps nurture relationships, helps you earn loyalty.
However, you must have the customer in the first place or be able to earn them. Chances are for most businesses, that a few stand-alone tweets are not going to by themselves get you new customers. You must have a platform that attracts them, a conversion funnel to help nurture the relationship and be able to deliver what you promise to earn their business in the first place.
