Blogging Masterminding: The Power of a Mastermind
One of the many mistakes I made when I started my blog was ignoring blogging Masterminds. I did not leverage the Power of a Mastermind. I failed to see that I was not meant to be a lone ranger but was made to be a part of a mastermind of great minds.
In your journey to becoming a leader in your Home-Based Business, you will need to eventually have a blog. You will have to brand yourself, and share your value. One of the best ways to speed up your growth is through the power of a mastermind. A group of people who follow you, resonate with your mission and support YOU. A group of people you would support and together you will help yourselves get what you want or get to where you want to be.
Be part of a mastermind with people of similar vision and watch yourself being guided in the right direction and ultimately getting more clarity in your business efforts.
How Blogging Masterminds Work
A Blogging Mastermind works in such a way that you have a group of like-minded bloggers with whom you build a strategic, joint venture, partnership with… A Mastermind agrees to help share one another’s blog posts, videos, and other content to their social media followers, to assist each other in expanding your networks.
In other words, your Mastermind is really the people who help syndicate, or share your content with their followers and databases and help YOU get the word out.
They do ‘word of mouth’ marketing FOR you and help bring you consistent, new traffic. They get the ‘social buzz’ train started and can eventually get thousands and even tens of thousands of people talking about you in the social networks and heading over to your blog to read or watch your content.
Classical Example of a Blogging Mastermind At Work
Let me give you an example of how powerful this can be…
Let’s say you build up YOUR social media following to 2,000 people (total number of followers and friends across all social networking sites like facebook, twitter etc).
When you launch a piece of content on your blog, you have 2,000 people to market your post to for free. When you promote your blog content to your followers, you have an already-established network of people who will see your post, comment on it, and with whom you can continue to build rapport with.
You can spend as much of your time as possible growing your following, but at the end of the day, your personal efforts will only take you as far as your own hand can reach. In this example, 2,000 people is great… But this is the extent of your exposure.
Now let’s say you have a tribe of 5 people… And each of these 5 people has a social media following of 2,000 people just like you. When you post a new piece of content to your blog, each of these 5 people will now send your post to their 2,000 followers. They are making a ‘word of mouth’ referral for their followers to check out your content and potentially start following you.
So now, instead of your exposure only reaching 2,000 of your own followers, you’ve just multiplied your exposure to reach 12,000 people total.
That’s 10,000 new people who are being introduced to you within a matter of seconds and could potentially now become loyal followers and readers of yours. Are you starting to see the power? It’s truly unlimited!
Now imagine you have 10 people in your tribe with 2,000 followers each. Within a matter of seconds of each of them sharing your blog post with their followers, you now have 20,000 people being exposed to YOU!
Can you imagine what your business would look like if you had 20,000 new people being referred to you for your products or services? And not just any random 20,000 people… These are WARM referrals that came from word of mouth recommendations by trusted sources.
Just think about it… Word of mouth recommendations are the most powerful form of marketing. When you are looking for a new doctor, a tax preparer, a marketing coach, or a new book to read, you most likely follow and trust the recommendations you get from friends.
Well, it works the same way in the world of social media marketing… When a trusted source recommends something or someone to you, you listen. So when you have a tribe of people who recommend your content to their loyal followers, this is the highest leverage and most potent way to drive new traffic…
And as the social buzz builds up viral momentum, before you know it you can have a perpetual flow of new traffic coming to your blog systematically and automatically, day in and day out. Your content works FOR you by attracting people with your value and your blogging mastermind helps to work FOR you by promoting you and helping you get more exposure.
And it’s exactly how I consistently get hundreds sometimes thousands of visits to my blog daily and generate leads (opt-ins) everyday on complete autopilot. It’s no joke my Alexa Ranking is dropping like craze… I literally have an entire TEAM working for me, sharing my blog and my content all over the social networks.
In fact one of my facebook tagging partners shared one of my facebook notes on facebook, and before I knew it I saw someone send the note to a list of about 40,000 people. How did I know? Because I am in that person’s list! If that happened to your blog post, you can imagine what that can do for your blog traffic, blog optins, alexa ranking, credibility and ranking.
Quite frankly, having valuable content is not enough… I’ve met many bloggers and social media marketers who have amazing content, but just can’t seem to get it front of people… You could be one of the best content creators in existence, but if you don’t have a means to share it with people and actually market it, you’ll never get anywhere.
Blogging Masterminds You Could Be a Part of
There are a lot of blogging masterminds you can be a part of and because I cannot be a part of every mastermind available, you might not see me in all of the ones I would be pointing you too but be rest assured that you are in safe hands with these ones. I also include some blogging websites that are absolutely amazing. You would do yourselves great disservice if you don’t share your contents there.
