The group has grown to 450 members over 5 months. The growth has been really slow. Adding to that, I am really confused where and how to spread the word about the group.
In a time where everyone is transitioning to the virtual world it is easy to get lost in the chaos. Nonetheless, not impossible to maintain and sustain visibility. However there is a strategy and formula that you must apply with intention if you are going to survive it all.
a. You must be intention. This means you have to get over the give me something for nothing mentality. People in the virtual world are just as selfish as you. You must go the extra mile to create and develop your virtual relationships. This takes time and persistents. This means scheduling time to not only create post that match your brand, but also interacting and commenting on the posts of others and joining other groups with people who would potentially be interested in yours.
b. Learn to apply systems and automations in your brand. These exist because our time is the most valuable commodity that we have. This resource will help free up some of your time to do more of what you need to do.
c. Decide what kind of leader you are going to be and own it. The character of your group will assume whatever personal characteristics you possess. So if you are bored with it and discouraged, the members of your group will be less likely to engage. So take a personality test and discover your strengths and weaknesses before proceeding.
d. Leaders are problem solvers. It's obvious you have a problem. Leaders are also team players. It's who is a part of your team that makes all the difference. Connect with others who are winning at what you desire to see in your group and learn from them.
