The risk is no bigger than beginning. What some fail to see is that there’s a very low barrier to entry in this space. However, that low barrier doesn’t equate “ease” which depends on how you operationally define it.
The last part hits it home. Some believe “all in” is the way to go, when its smarter (overall) to utilize another income source (job, or otherwise), to ensure you can last long enough doing this stuff to see results.
If there’s any kind of secret, its that most success reflects our ability to survive in the game. In this case, being able to do what makes an account/network successful at your best, without compromising what makes it work, for a long enough time to see whether it worked or not.
No one can tell you ahead of time how long that will be or what that success will look like. The platform exists in the way that won’t always be predictable or linear on an individual account level in terms of engagement, follower growth, or CTA conversions. However, you give yourself the best chance to reap the rewards if you can stick it out.
The same way any one else can reach out and contact you on the platform. Again:
The direct answer: Checked the DM’s one day, saw the message, went from there.
The page doesn’t Advertise, nor does it have any CTA like “DM for Business.”
If you run a page with some size, be sure to check/clean your inbox. That’s about it.
Appreciated. The mental game dictates much of the success here. The spiritual game, takes it to another level. Inner game begins the creation of outward results. But that’s for a different space & a different discussion. Definitely summed it up quite well.
