On this week’s episode of Wake Up Legendary David Sharpe interviewed Jessica Zion. Jessica was an esthetician for 12 years but felt like she was constantly trading her time for money. She didn’t feel in control of her own income and work hours. With a busy home filled with 5 growing kids, she wanted to be able to spend more time with them. Within two months of beginning her affiliate marketing journey she was able to leave her job and replace her income from her esthetician job because of her affiliate marketing.
If you are someone who wants to be able to be in control of your own income and work hours this interview is for you.
The Three C’s
Jessica shared that in order to be successful in her affiliate marketing business she follows her 3 c’s: create consistent content.
Creating consistent content is vital to your success. This will not only help you be accountable to your followers, but creating consistent content is what will attract more followers to you. Your content gets pushed into the algorithm and the more content you push out, the more likely it is for your videos to take off and go viral.
When you start posting content you should set a goal amount of posts for yourself to make each day or week so that you can keep up with posting your content consistently. It may also help to film several videos in advance. If you already have content built up and ready to post, that’s less pressure on you to film videos each day.
There may be weeks when your content doesn't get as many views as it did another week. Regardless of how many views it's getting, it's important to still stay consistent with posting your content. Your content can gather thousands of views overnight and you never know which videos will attract more viewers.
Different Types of Content
There are three different types of content you can make: story telling, results based, and educational. Posting different types of content and mixing it up will keep your viewers interested and will reach them in multiple ways whether that be through a lesson or a story.
Viewers love to hear a good story. Becoming a good storyteller in your content is key to growing an engaged audience. When you’re telling a story in your content people will watch longer especially if there is suspense built up before the outcome or end of the story. Apps like TikTok and Instagram keep track of how long each video is watched for and use that to determine how to push it in the algorithm. Longer watch times means your content will be pushed out to more people.
It’s easy to create storytelling content because that's something you have personal experience with and have already lived through. Jessica shared with David Sharpe that storytelling content is not something that should be copied from another person because it's your own story that you're telling.
Repurposing Content On Multiple Platforms
Along with consistently posting content, repurposing your content is a great way to keep traffic flowing to your social media pages. There are 4 free apps that you can use to repurpose content on. TikTok, Instagram reels, YouTube shorts, and Pinterest stories.
Social media algorithms are really favoring short form video content right now. You have different audiences across each platform and you want your content to reach as many people as possible. Reposing your content to each of your accounts on these social media apps will help you to gather more of a following and gather more customers and leads.
Being Authentic To Your Audience
When creating content it is best to just be yourself and be honest with your viewers. Use subjects that you really connect with when you make your content. By using subjects that you connect with and know about, it builds trust with your audience because they are more likely to buy something from you or that you’re promoting if you’ve already tried it out yourself.
Another piece of advice that Jessica shared during her interview with David Sharpe was to not compare yourself to others because that can really slow down your progress. Just because another affiliate marketer or content creator has been around longer than you or may have more followers than you, does not mean that you aren’t creating good enough content or aren’t making progress. What matters is your consistency to create content and focusing on how you present your content to your viewer.
Whether you are new to creating content and just getting started or you’re looking for advice on how to make your content more effective, using these tips will help you to push your content out to a wider audience.
