How to Turn Followers into Clients
You've said it time and time again, "writing content is HARD!"
My friend, I totally agree with you.
Writing captivating content takes time and effort but I promise you, all of that time you've spent smacking your head against a wall looking at a blank screen trying to come up with something that your audience is going to benefit from will be SO worth it!
And here is how do it.
H - Hook
I - Insight
C - Call to Action
Short and sweet, eh?
Let me break it down for you.
A hook is using the right words to captivate your audience. To stop their scrolling and have them wanting to press "Read More" because they want to know what you have to say.
Next, you've grabbed their attention, and now you are going to reel em' on it with your INSIGHTS!
Every great caption serves your followers in some way. You want to add value and make sure that when they stop to read your copy, you aren't wasting their time. Are you teaching them something new? Are you inspiring or motivating them? Are you making them laugh or smile?
Finally, you've hooked them in and you've shared some insight. Now what? Often times we focus so much on the first two steps that we forget about the most important aspect of social media: Engagement! And here is where your Call to Action steps in. What do you want your audience to do? Ask an engaging question and tell them to leave their answer in the comments. Invite your followers to check out the link in your bio for more information and to let you know what they think. Invite them to send you a DM with their favourite recipe. The list can go on!
Having engaging content not only builds trust in you and your business, but builds long lasting relationships and CLIENTS!
But I get it. Some things are easier said than done.
Let me break it down with some examples!
