Top 5 Ways to Organically Grow your Audience on Facebook
I remember when I first started online, I thought I’d be rich in 30 days or 90 days at most!
I mean, the leaders told me it was possible because others had done it that fast, so why not me right?
Maybe you’ve been told the same thing, and before you go and think it’s a lit they told you, it’s important to understand why.
I can tell you why you weren’t able to achieve it as fast as they told you it was possible but you might not like the answer.
Why does it take so long to build and Audience?
I heard a quote that went something like this: “You will be penalized by how you acted in the past”.
I’m not sure who said it and if those were the exact words but basically, it means that how things are going for you today are a direct reflection of you past actions and behaviors.
In other words, if you weren’t outgoing in the past and didn’t build a big list of acquaintances and friends, you’ll have trouble building an audience online.
So, the reason it takes so long to build an audience online is because no one knows you.
The other reason is because human nature takes days, weeks and even months to choose to trust someone new.
