It took me a year to get 1,000 subscribers.
It took me another three months to get 14,000.
For the second, I applied a framework to leverage content that gets subscribers.
Over the same three months, we used it to drive over a thousand website leads.
This is not any framework – it’s a repeatable framework.
This means you can use it to get the same results.
Here’s how you can set it up:
Put the Right People in Your Network
When producing content, you need an audience.
It starts with optimizing your profile for a high add-back rate.
You can find instructions on how to do so in our book, LinkedIn Influencer.
Next, you want to skip over the pain of manually connecting to people who’d be interested in your content. Tools like Linked Helper and a custom Facebook auto adder will automate this for you.
For Linked Helper, you can connect to a couple of hundred people a day on LinkedIn if you have a Sales Navigator account.
You can get granular – searching by job title, company, or keywords in their profile.
The next tool is a Facebook auto added.
You need to outsource it.
The good news is it only costs a couple hundred dollars to do so via Upwork.
You upload a list of Facebook profile URLs, then it sends out friend requests.
I recommend sending 150 friend requests every day.
To get Facebook URLs, there are three ways:
1. You can extract members from a Facebook Group
2. Extract friends from Facebook profiles
3. Export a custom list from Crunchbase
For the third, you need a Crunchbase account. I prefer this method because it provides the highest quality Facebook URLs of influencers, and there’s a lot less data to sort through.
Once you have your LinkedIn and Facebook automation set up – you’re adding hundreds of relevant people to your audience every day.
It’s time to nurture them with content.
