00:25 So, you know what people say all the time right you’ve probably heard it and I’ll repeat it: “content is king.” Some people will say content is king, queen, aunt, uncle, niece. You know everything’s everything is about content these days because there’s so much chatter going on. There are so many videos so many people to follow so many people probably doing similar things to you obviously you and I, you know, we’re unique we do different things our ways, so that’s what makes us a little different than our competitors. 00:58 But how do you really stand out? How do you make yourself stand out? Because there’s so many options for people, right? 01:08 So let’s talk about those four ways to make people feel that will grow your community with ideal clients.
Tip #1: Make Them Feel Confident

01:14 So, number one, make them feel confident. How do you make people feel confident? Why do people feel not confident? It’s usually because they don’t know something, right.
01:27 So you’re gonna be able [indistinguishable], that’s simple, something that they can actually do on their own and they feel confident that they can do it now because they’ve got those easy steps.
Tip #2: Let Them Feel Connected
01:40 Number two: let them feel connected. And by connected I mean connected to you, connected to your bigger community and tribe, connected to your mission. So, you have to make sure you’re sharing your story of why you do what you do and also share some behind-the-scenes, share some flub ups, share a lot of things about you that makes your personality different.
02:05 The other day my daughter and I were talking about being funny and I’m just like “I’m funny” and she’s like, she’s like “Daddy’s funny because he’s witty. You’re funny because of the way that you say things or little quirky mannerisms that you have.” Okay, fine. That’s all right with me. I’m still funny. So I get to be funny and that’s how I connect with people with these little quirky things that I do. I’m not exactly sure when I do them all.
Tip #3: Make Them Feel Reassured
02:35 Number three: make them feel reassured, okay? Reassured. You need to make them feel like you understand where they’ve been. Again, story story story, examples, case studies, stuff that you’ve done in the past.
02:53 Make them feel reassured that you’re empathic you know that – not empathic – that you empathize with them, that you acknowledge where they’ve been, where they are. Share some of the struggles that you had when you are in the same place. Make them feel reassured that they’re not alone, that they’re not some weird quirk of the universe that is the only person that’s ever felt this way or ever been there. Make them feel reassured.
Tip #4: Inspire Them
03:22 And number four: inspire them. I say this in a different way sometimes about leaving them in their heart. Encourage them. You know you may be the only person that they feel is in your corner – even if they don’t know you personally, face to face. Just purely by seeing you online could be something.
03:45 I know a mom and daughter who I really didn’t know the mom that well however we knew each other online. She watched my things. I didn’t really know the impact the amount of impact I had on her life until this dear woman passed away and then her daughter reached out to me and said “I don’t know if you know but mom watched everything that you put out. She loved everything that you did and you inspired her day by day to keep going.” That’s like, I didn’t even know, right? These people may not always tell you but if you leave them in their heart.
04:25 If you share with them who you truly are and what you truly want for them and share the possibilities of what their life could be like, then you’ll encourage them to keep going, right?
