Community Marketing – the marketing method responsible for all the fortunes online… offline too.
Have you ever asked yourself how come some products are nothing special, way too expensive, yet somehow sell like butter?
The answer is only one – community marketing.
The most powerful marketing is building a community that is always ready to buy from you. Of course it is extremely difficult and takes a lot of skill, but once done, you will be good to go for life.
There was that saying:
“it only takes a thousand raving fans to turn your book into a bestseller”
You can either join an already formed community and move your way up to the top, or build your own such.
What is a community?
A community is a blog, an email list, a forum, a Facebook group, a Google Plus community, a Twitter follower base, a Facebook profile, basically any group of people centered around the same idea.
What is community marketing?
It’s more than selling… it’s giving people a good reason to stick around, an idea that unites them, that makes them feel a part of something.
People love to participate in groups, they make them feel safe and comfortable, it’s our human nature to seek and surround ourselves with like-minded people.
Once you manage to achieve that, people will start buying anything from you without even thinking.
How to build a community?
It is really a time-consuming activity and will not happen overnight. Even so, a community is worth every second spent building.
A lot of people like to build facebook groups and facebook pages… they are fine, but I’ll give you an example with me.
When I started online I was like:
“I should build a killer blog that makes a difference”
…and started this blog. Fast forward to today and I have a list of people who love me (I love them too) and thousands of visitors each month.
What’s a better community than this?
Yeah, the blog did not make money for a long time, yet it built a huge community.
