Who else is going to start their business with astrology, new age or spiritual counseling? Are you looking for innovative, unique and profitable places to advertise your services ... but don't you have a lot of budget to start with?
The truth is, as you probably already know ... about 85% of all professional astrologers, clairvoyants, media, energy workers and New Age consultants of any kind do not make any real money at all.
It's a tough, competitive business ... and success is much less about skill than strategy. (In other words, some of the best known and most successful astrologers, clairvoyants and spiritual trainers are the least talented and some of the BEST who wallow in the dark forever.)
With that in mind, I want to offer you a very simple set of steps to start your brand and business TODAY, starting from scratch and quite often, to get your first customers in a matter of days.
Curious? Let's take a look at the list below!
1 - Article syndication. Simply put, writing articles (like this one) for the purpose of spreading your message online is a very effective way to expand your influence and build your brand, often in places you couldn't reach on your own. Remember that many tables of contents reach millions of visitors every day, and the categories of spiritual, personal development and New Age are also VERY popular.
2 - Online classified ads. Believe it or not, some of my clients have built their entire business on the back of Craigslist and Backpage.com. Because of their hyperlocal focus, you can quickly and easily establish yourself as a credible spiritual coach or advisor in your local community with fast, entertaining and FREE ads that transform like crazy. Keep in mind that within 10 to 14 years, you can make good money even if you only get 2 or 3 responses per ad and place 1 ad per day (which is modest) and get 1 new customer for 3 or 4 calls each Days if you go on like this!
3 - Find hyperlocal blogs and offer to contribute content
Of course it is important to create your own brand blog ... but also to find and contribute to other local blogs and news sources in your community. The truth is, 1 blog post in an arts, entertainment, or lifestyle section of your online newspaper or community site can generate enough traffic to keep you busy for weeks, months, or even years. (The secret is how you involve visitors so they don't come back!)
4 - Start Tumblr Aggressively! Why? Because it's fun, easy, and creative to curate content in your niche ... and build a community of fans, friends, and followers that will help you get your message across and grow your audience. In many ways, Tumblr is far superior to Twitter and Facebook on business, and yet not every 50th trainer, teacher, trainer and "spiritual professional" has ever used it. (It's also 100% free and great fun to boot!)
The final result?
If you feel a sense of PURPOSE and passion for your ability to help, contribute, and offer hope and healing to those in need, you CAN build a hyperprofitable and rewarding company that does the work you love. But don't wait. Instead - if you are really good at what you do, follow the simple tips above and start winning your first customers BEFORE they find someone who doesn't have your gift instead.
