In this episode of “The Marketing Nerdz Podcast”, CEO “Karan Dharamsi” talks about what can we learn from “Elon Musk” about Entrepreneurship and Digital Marketing.
This Podcast is all about Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Digital Marketing, and that one important thing to consider to grow your businesses, accelerate your marketing campaigns and march towards success!
In this Podcast, Karan shares his personal experience after watching on of Elon Musk’s interview with TED.
On his interview, Elon shared a lot of things including his vision and goals for his life and work.Not just that, he also spoke about how he found a problem in the society and has already started working towards solving the same!
He has always been someone who not only has a great vision but also puts in the required dedication and hard work to implement and achieve the same.
Be is Tesla, sending people to Mars or building tunnels in NewYork city.
Elon is a man with great vision accompanied with the desire and hard work to implement the same. Be it for his personal life or for his company, when it comes to Elon, there is absolutely no one who can compete with him.
This is only because apart from setting up goals and having great visions, he has a definition to his vision.
Here is what can we learn from Elon Musk about Entrepreneurship and Digital Marketing:
For any Business to run successfully, we need a great vision!
But a vision which is not defined is ultimately of no use. Having a clear vision is extremely important and what’s more important is to keep your self away from the small, unclear goals.
Everyone of us come across those times when we are tied back with petty issues and thoughts of how to pay the bills for the coming month, how to pay the rents etc. And if you stick around to setting up your visions around these things, they will be very restrictive.
Your vision will be limited to your immediate needs and you will never explore your ultimate vision, which eventually will lead you to fulfilment and a happier life!
Here’s another thing we can learn from Elon Musk about Entrepreneurship and Digital Marketing:
Anyone can have visions for their professional and personal life. But what sets the successful one’s apart is a vision which is not Vague.
A lot of us have the vision “to be successful” or “to be the best”
These are the best examples of unclear, vague visions. Define your vision, set numbers, definite numbers!
And once you have your great, definite vision in place, it is equally important to implement it!
Your goals and vision itself should be exciting enough to make you want to jump out of bed each morning and start working, something that you are passionate about.
When you have your passion, hard work and vision aligned together, you will create Magic!
And here’s what one can learn from Elon Musk when it comes to Digital Marketing:
To be a successful Digital Marketer, you need to be clear about your vision as a Digital Marketer. It is extremely important to be aware of where you are going and if you are clear about your future in the industry.
Not just that, it helps you to stay updated with the evolving times, for if you have no definite vision, you will not see the need to learn new things or you may not be aware of things that would actually help you since you are yourself not sure about your goals and vision.
Karan explains the point further, sharing the examples for his own students and participants who pursue Digital Marketing courses under him.
Apart from setting the goal, you need to ask yourself these very important questions:
What are you going to achieve or solve with your vision?
How are you going to implement it?
When are you going to work on it?
Once you have these things in place, you will have a concrete vision which will make sure that your life becomes more exciting, and you wake you every morning with a lot of happiness, content and passion!
So, go ahead and have a bold, definite vision and do not forget to implement your vision!
In this episode of “The Marketing Nerdz Podcast”, CEO “Karan Dharamsi” shares his four step formula on “how to use Instagram to get more customers for your local business”.
If you too have a local business like that of a Salon, Dentist, Gym, Ice cream Parlours etc, most likely, people who stay in your area are the one’s who would visit you frequently and be your customers.
And Instagram as a Digital Marketing Platform has a great potential to reach out to your target audience, and scale your local business by getting in more customers.
So, wondering how to find your ideal target audience on Instagram and get them to follow your account and get them to your store?
Here’s the four step formula by Karan on how to use Instagram to get more customers for your local business:
The first and the most important step to use Instagram to get more customers for your local business is to find the right Hashtags:
To begin with, think of all the hashtags your potential customers would be using. Taking into consideration their buying behaviours, their spending patterns etc, you need to work on a list of hashtags that they would be using the most.
Giving an example of a local gym, Karan speaks about the ways to find your target audience if they were in the age bracket of 18-25.
Study which hashtags are they most probable to use and make a list of the potential hashtags.
Colleges, Cafes, Actors, Movies, other Gyms, Dance Studios, Fitness Supplement Companies etc are a few things to consider while finding the right hashtags your audience would use.
Once you have the list of the right hashtags, the next step is to search for potential customers who actually use those hashtags in Instagram.
Here’s the second step to follow on Instagram to get more customers for your local business:
Take the list of the hashtags you have finalised and put in each hashtag in Instagram’s search bar. Go through all the posts for that particular hashtag and look for your potential customer.
Browse through the profiles in detail and if you find a person who fits your target audience, here’s what you need to do next:
Apply the 4:1:1 formula
This formula is nothing but liking 4 to 5 pictures of that profile, commenting on one of the pictures with something genuine and following their account. But remember, do not spam the profile with trashy comments like “great job” or “that’s awesome”.
Find an area where you can build some authentic connection and engage with your potential audience. It will generate curiosity and entice the person to check out your profile, reach out to you and eventually follow you back.
With 4 likes, a follow and 1 comment, you usually have the person follow you back.
Once you have the person following you back, here is the next step on how to use Instagram to get more customers for your local business:
It is very important to use the bio and description part of your Instagram profile carefully!
Have a link in the bio which is typically a lead magnet, which will entice the person who visits your profile to click on it or sign up.
For example: 30 day free training or some diet consultation, tips to get abs in 30 days etc.
Offer them something interesting, irresistible and something that they benefit from so that they sign up for your lead magnet and have a sense of connection with you or your Brand.
And, here is the last step on how to use Instagram to get more customers for your local business:
Once you have the leads sign up for your offer, put them into your nurturing email sequence and eventually nurture them into a client with your awesome service.
For a more personalised process, make sure to send a DM, thanking the person once they follow you or sign up for your lead magnet. Once you have connected with all the potential leads for one particular hashtag, repeat the same process for the remaining hashtags.
So, here’s a quick recap of the four steps:
Make a list of the hashtags your potential audience would use
Search for the profiles on Instagram
Use the 4:1:1 formula and offer them a lead magnet
Put them in your automated nurturing sequence
This process might be a little more time consuming but the results are amazing as it is one of the platforms which ensure direct connectivity with your potential audience!
If you are not using Instagram for your business yet, you are missing out on a lot!
So, get started and find your ideal customer on Instagram using this four step formula.
