Ep. 31: Building an Authentic Instagram Platform without compromising your calling
My guest today speaks about building an Authentic Instagram Platform, and her name is Belinda Letchford, my good friend and parenting coach. Today we're discussing learning how to implement an IG strategy without compromising your calling. She has learned valuable insights from our pro member hot seats like how to better use stories, make connections with your target audience, and more.    Belinda Letchford  lives in Australia, writes on her website and she talks to Moms across the world (thanks to the internet) with her teaching and coaching. Belinda encourages mums to build strong relationships, shape their children’s hearts and use the whole of life to teach faith, character and life skills. She has 4 adult kids, whom she homeschooled. They have all left home now so life looks very different but she continues to support moms to be heart-focused.  (Click below for show notes & Resources) https://ruthiegray.mom/authentic-instagram-platform/ Belinda Letchford, Live Live with Your Kids https://livelifewithyourkids.com/         Building an Authentic Instagram Platform (Without Compromising Your Calling!)     Belinda, what were some of the frustrations you experienced before you really had a grasp on a good Instagram strategy?      The Learning Curve of Building an Authentic Instagram Platform   B: I felt I needed to get on Instagram and that there was a huge generational gap between other people using Instagram like my kids. The way they shared on Instagram was so vibrant and full of energy. I felt I really needed to get to that point if I was going to continue reaching the next generation of moms. It was hard because I’m a word based person with a focus on blogging and speaking. To switch it over to being image-based and concise with words was really challenging as well as uncomfortable.    R:  It is hard and my target audience is my age, trying to figure out instagram. They say a lot of the same things. A lot of our peers have on Instagram who can figure it out. But, it’s challenging to women our age to learn all of these tips and tricks in the first place.   B:  Yes, and I think that makes you choose a different aspect of yourself to share as opposed to when you're teaching. I'm very comfortable talking to people sitting at my dining room table but learning to share on Instagram is completely different.     R: We've been learning together for a while! Belinda has been tagging along with me to learn and change up her Instagram.  I’ve noticed a big difference in her strategies. Belinda, share with us what kind of strategies you've started to implement with your heart-focused parenting Instagram account and where you're seeing results.    B:  I think the biggest strategy that I have changed is how you've encouraged me to share more of my everyday life, not always teach. I think it's a security blanket for me to have that message always at the forefront. At the same time, that's my passion. Finding the gentle balance of life is just my heart message.              Generating Authentic Conversations on Instagram B: What I really learned is how to take images and the captions and make them into a conversation. I can go from my own feed to jump over into someone else's image and caption and create a conversation over there.    I’ve been really challenged lately when I have conversations here at home, I engage with all sorts of people about multiple things. That's what I do when I jump over to other people’s feed and engage with their captions. I might jump over to someone to talk about marriage or to talk to someone about fashion. Maybe I'll go to talk to them about living in an RV. I think that's a really big lesson for me is to broaden my experience.    One of the things I try to keep myself very aware of is I want to engage with mums and help them grow as mums. It doesn't matter what the experts tell us.

Eric Siu - Leveling Up - Making Business Your Favorite Game
Our guest today, is Eric Siu who we met last year at Rich Schrefen’s event. Eric has an agency, Single Grain who works with major companies such as Amazon and Airbnb, and Uber. He also has a content intelligence software called ClickFlow which basically makes you look like a genius. He’s a partner and co-host with Neil Patel in the Marketing School podcast as well as his own podcast called Leveling Up. The dude is a rockstar in marketing, SaaS, and software and he blew us away in this episode. And to top it off, he has a book coming out called Leveling Up as well, and it’s all about how to level up in life and how he’s taken his experience from gaming and even poker and has been able to apply these to business and identify these power-ups and moments in time where he realizes he can think differently which allows him to wake up each day and feel like he’s playing a game in real life. We also broke down a ton of traffic strategies, and how you can think differently on how to acquire SEO traffic in a creative way. When you have finished listening, check out our previous chats with Christopher Gimmer and Stephan Spencer for more tactics on how to go off-brand and increase traffic as well as how to succeed with 100% SEO marketing. “I don’t think that I know too much and that I’m that good and I also don’t think I’m that bad either. That’s the way I approach it and it makes it a lot easier because it keeps me humble and even-keeled. The moment you start to think you are amazing, the moment you start to become too full of yourself - that’s when things start to fall apart.” - Eric Siu Some Topics We Discussed Include: * How to approach things with a beginner’s mind * The power of the podcast once again and how’s it’s lead to great, free education, lifelong friendships, and networking with amazing people * Why you don’t want to jump the gun and insist your child stop playing all those video games * How being persistent led from a fledgling podcast to a successful marketing agency * Why Eric’s agency switched their focus and how they are succeeding current day * Lessons learned from the poker table * How to reframe things to increase your power * Growth principles for long term thinking * Alternate ways to make money from affiliate marketing without being an affiliate Resources From Eric Siu: * LevelingUp.com * Find Eric on Twitter or Instagram * ClickFlow * Single Grain Agency References and Links Mentioned: * MicroAcquire.com * QuietLightBrokerage.com * Roland Frasier’s EPIC challenge * Gary V’s How To Create 64 Pieces Of Content A Day * Eric’s YouTube Channel * Marketing School podcast * KingSumo * The Almanack of Naval by Eric Jorgenson * Your Music And People by Derek Sivers * Breakthrough Advertising by Eugene M.
