In 2010, I was in my Junior year of High School. I was earnestly wishing for the Future "me" to Blossom. A me that was finished with that dramatic High School scene. A me that was even more Empowered, Independent, and Free. Truth is, Chica, we are always learning. We are always blossoming. We are always growing. If you spend so much of your real time wishing for the next step, then you'll never be at Peace with your current circumstances. Being at Peace with your circumstances doesn't mean you are eager-less, motionless, *** --- it simply means you find actual Peace along the way in your ChicaJourney. You accept each encounter along your Path. You don't resent what's been and you don't fear what's to come. You simply BE. You live in a state of Peaceful Motion. Always moving forward. Moving forward with those you LOVE.
It's my belief that we have an instinctive obsession with Timelines --- Especially as ChicaContent Creators. And, We fail to embrace our own Journeys in full. We are always wanting what's NEXT. We want the thriving Benefits of what our New Years Resolutions will bring each of us. But, we are totally unwilling to put in actual Action-Steps to achieve these ChicaResolutions. We are unwilling to consistently put in the Smart, hard effort.(Share this graphic so other amazing Chicas will gain Value & Encouragement)
My hope for YOU this coming 2020 New Year is to embrace the Strategic Action-Steps you CAN Harness to Grow Your own ChicaBrand and Build the Abundant Connections you truly seek.
So, here are without further Ado, here are my Top Four Marketing Strategies for Content Creators in 2020
As I always say, you can't go at your ChicaJourney alone. And, you shouldn't have to go at it alone. There is a unique blessing in growing with your own, empowering ChicaCommunity. The genuine, long-term Collaborations you gain from this Community blossom both YOU and the other amazing ChicaBlogger of whom you are joyfully collaborating. There are so many ways you can Collaborate in mutually-beneficial Strategy! Joining private Facebook Groups to network, Guest Writing, Intentional Shout-outs, etc. You get what you GIVE in the world of Content Creating. So, why not Harness your own ChicaTribe and totally transform you authentic Growth as a Content Creator this New Year. I've connected with Bloggers from all over the World with ChicaConfident.com. Word of Mouth is your greatest ChicaMarketing Tool. I encourage YOU to dedicate real Time to Collaborations. Put the extra work for that Collaborative Content Creating; Create that Guest Article; Answer questions and simply spread (needed) Support among your fellow Bloggers. You'll be so glad that you actually did, Chica. I was inspired throughout my writing this ChicaBlog Post by the ChicaBlogger Angela Lanter. Definitely go checkout her YouTube Channel and watch the full tutorial that inspired my DIY Mini-Vlog shared in this ChicaBlog Post.
I know, I know, I know. Yet another Platform to learn. But, hear me out for a moment. Did you know, "When it comes to the average number of videos watched on TikTok, there were more than 1 million videos viewed every day in a year (according to Influencermarketinghub, 2018) Wow, right? In addition, TikTok is a platform mainly aimed at (you guessed it) Content Creators. And the ease with which anyone can become a content creator, is one of the many factors that gives TikTok an advantage over the current competition. These very real statistics prove that whether you’re a social media marketer or a social media user, TikTok isn’t a force to be taken lightly. It’s time to pay real serious attention to TikTok (according to Oberlo.com). One of the many benefits (as of now) with TikTok is the ease in which a ChicaContent Creator can be seen. It's far easier to grow on TikTok, in comparison to Instagram, for example. But, we all know Instagram USED to be far easier to grow than it is now. So, don't take this current, available opportunities on TikTok lightly. I guarantee this ease of growth will change and circumstances will definitely mold. You can start utilizing TikTok in 2020 to truly enhance your amazing Content Creating skills. I simply re-distribute videos I'm already sharing on Instagram, Facebook, and my ChicaBlog.

So, really, I'm not having to create separate content for TikTok. Have fun with your ChicaVlogging! See what works. See what doesn't. Enjoy the Process. Video Marketing is no longer an "up-and-coming" content strategy. It's here, and it's an increasingly powerful way to communicate your [own] ChicaBrand story, explain your value proposition, and build [real, genuine] relationships with your customers and prospects (according to blog.hubspot.com). Enhance your ChicaVlogging Skills starting today.
Starting this New Year, make a real intention to Give your ChicaAudience as much Value as possible. Though you greatest revenue streams are likely your own ChicaProducts, ChicaServices, and ChicaPartnerships, you can certainly earn yourself some added (basically passive) ChicaRevenue by monetizing your apparel, ChicaBusiness tools, shoes, self-care items, gift guides, etc. One of my favorite ways to do this is with my Amazon Shop. I use Amazon so often for a variety of items, so I love using the platform as an opportunity to help my ChicaAudience, as well! Why keep all your unique, amazing recommendations to yourself, Chica?! Share them with other incredible Chicas, too! I also love linking my Styles, Tools, etc. with LIKEtoKnow.it . There are lots of different apps and platforms that allow you to make your own ChicaContent shop-able, but these are my two personal favorites. Amazon Influencer Program commission ranges from 5-10 percent. LIKEtoKNOW.it commission ranges from 5-20 percent. Sure, your income may be "pocket change" at first. BUT, as Time continues and your ChicaAudience continues to grow, flourish, and expand --- that commission you earn could become a highly significant ChicaRevenue stream for your ChicaBusiness. Take a look at these two incredibly beneficial Programs. See what you think! Oh, and (as always) definitely feel free to drop your thoughts in the ChicaComments below.
Did you know that email marketing provides the best ROI for both acquisition and retention, according to Small Business Trends. Email lists provide an pivotal opportunity for YOU as the ChicaContent Creator to truly connect 1:1 with your ChicaAudience whenever you want! No hassle. No algorithm contingencies. Your own opportunity to connect anytime you want on your own terms. Social Medias are fantastic for building rapport and Marketing your ChicaBrand. But, at the end of the day, you don't own any Social Medias. BUT, your email list you DO own. You call the shots. I house ChicaConfident.com on Kajabi. In Kajabi, you are able to see data on who's opening your emails, who's clicking on links in your emails, what time these ChicaUsers are opening your emails, etc. This amazing feedback allows you to truly and intentionally observe how your ChicaAudience is connecting with your emails. I offer a potential ChicaFamily Member various ChicaFreebies to encourage her joining my email family. One of which are free "Pitch to Brand" Templates which you can receive immediately via email once you join my ChicaFamily. All in all, skyrocketing your emails is an intimate, unique, inviting way to truly Market your ChicaOffers, ChicaDeals, ChicaProducts, etc. in 2020.
