Social Media as a business platform in 2021?

Published

on

In 2020 one thing that has been proven is that having a regular 9-5 is not good enough to have a happy and sustainable lifestyle. So what is the right path to take in 2021 to secure your future?

Starting a Business

The only true way to “secure” your future is to be the person that’s building it. You can’t expect to be in control of your own future if you are not in control of your life, and the only way to do so is to be your own boss!

Starting your own business, becoming an Entrepreneur, more and more seems like the ONLY right way to generate income! Yes, it is hard, and yeah you will fail many times, but you are the one in control! If you want to earn more, that is up to you, if you need a 2 month break that is up to you!

Types of Businesses

Through my career as an entrepreneur I have seen 3 main business models!

1) Health/Fitness
Maybe you are an expert in certain topics on health or fitness, or maybe you are just a health/fitness enthusiast, but believe it or not no matter which one of the two you are, you can build a sustainable and successful business! I have seen online fitness trainers making anywhere between 6 to 8 figures, these people can either run their own programs on their time, while making. 6-8 figures OR they can work for a gym and make 30k/year. That is up to them and it is up to you.

2) Products/Services
Do you have a passion for making jewelry or T-Shirts, or do you absolutely love running ads on Facebook and YouTube? Why not turn that into a career? Instead of working at your regular 9-5 job, you can spend your days designing your product and posting it online so that other people who enjoy it can purchase it for themselves, or maybe you can use your passion for something to provide services to someone who needs a person just like you! If you ask me this sounds much better than mopping the floor or lifting boxes and making sandwiches for a big corporation!

3) Coaching/Mentoring
What if you are an expert in a certain field, or you know something that not many others do? Do you know that there are people out there who would pay for you to teach them? You can share your knowledge with the world and get paid for knowing something that you love. There are tons of people making great money making courses, holding online classes or mentoring others to do what they love, and you can do the same!

Social Media?

Now you may be thinking to yourself: “I know how to cook, but how do I find people who are interested in learning from me?” or “Oh man, I have been making butterfly rings for ages, how do I actually find people who would pay for them?”

So I know that you have by now heard of these social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, but how is that of any use to you if you are just wanting to start your business?

Did you know that there are approximately 500 million users on Instagram alone EVERY SINGLE DAY.
So why should you be on social media as a business owner? Because you have a huge audience to expose your business to. It’s not the people’s responsibility to see you, it is your responsibility to make sure that you present yourself to them, and there is no easier way to do it then going on to the most populated platforms in the world like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and TikTok!
