It has been a while since I wrote for Vividlife.me I have been growing through some growth and transformation over the last 5 to 6 months. It has been hard but rewarding.
So many of us are having this issue be it with our relationships, business, health…etc The one challenge people keep coming to me with is they are stressed about certain aspects of life and they want to change. The biggest two are Business/career and finances that I have been coaching people.
They are not happy with their boss, the job is not providing them personal satisfaction and they are looking else were…etc Then on top of that they are struggling with finances and trying to do multiple things to make money. A few are working a full time job, trying to build a business on the side and trying to keep their life in balance while struggling with money.
I know how these people feel I was there only a year ago really trying to find what was working until I decided to focus on what was right in front of me. Doing some market research and listening to the people I was coaching. I found out that these people had similar challenges and needed a simple way to get out of it because if it was complicated it would just add to the mix.
Being an IT guy from the past I saw how Social Marketing was helping people build their businesses online, how they were getting more exposure, attracting more clients and the revenue was increasing but there was a specific way to do this. To many people were failing but the ones who weren’t there was a patterns. One of the patterns was that these people was these successful people weren’t using Social Marketing to pitch their products/services they were using it to build relationships, to meet more people and really connect. To me this was brilliant because they were getting in front of 1,000’s of people per day for FREE and people were feeling the connection.
This is when I started doing this with my Twitter @Brandonkrieger (if your reading this follow me) and I saw a little growth, than a little more to the point I was averaging over 100 new followers per day and growing fast. This was amazing because now I had people I could connect with but I didn’t go back to my old ways of business. I started building Business Friendships and what happened was my business started to grow because I asked what people needed. When they needed my help I treated them like a friend and helped them. If it was a quick question I would answer it for them if it was something in depth I would have them contact me via e-mail. Now if it was something that I couldn’t answer quickly then I would have them book an appointment explain to them why. Which at this point they saw what I was doing on line and understood that if I could answer it quickly I would but they knew their question was in-depth and they needed more of my time.
This was an amazing break through but it didn’t stop there the questions started to become how did I build 34,000 followers and how could they do the same. Then I started to realize that people needed to learn how to use the Social Marketing tools properly especially Twitter. I started Coaching a few people and then a few more, to the point now that it has become a full-time business and I have an e-book coming out in the next 2 weeks keep posted at http://www.howtotwitterdoctor.com .
Now you know how the Twitter Doctor was born.
