Now let's get into how to sell your services using video online!
This might sound like it's going to be a lengthy video, but it's actually pretty simple.
This is a two-step process.
So don't overthink it.
And be sure to keep in mind this - the number one rule to selling your services online is
The more you GIVE your knowledge and show that you are an expert in what you do, the
more people will think of you as the authority.
Building an authority is how you sell your services online.
This brings me to step #1: Create Your Authority Online.
If you take a look at my business, the way that it blew up over the last year is because
I started making tutorials on YouTube.
I started making these tutorials because my clients kept on having the same questions
over and over again, about how to use social media and how to market themselves and their
So instead of answering them individually every single time, I started making these
It turns out, that there's thousands of other potential customers around the world who have
those same questions and are looking for those same answers.
By creating these videos, I'm not being found all over the world, opening up my business
to a whole new audience and a broader range of customers.
Imagine if you started doing that for your business!
You go from one-on-one, to having an audience to, in my case, 3 million people in a year!
So how do you build your authority online?
I have two methods that I do this through.
The first is through educational content.
I've talked about this a lot in the past, particularly on YouTube, because you have
to think about the fact that YouTube is a search engine.
People are searching for solutions to their problems and answers to their questions.
The first step is making tutorial based videos.
For example, there's a local dentist, and they have started making videos to a lot of
their clients questions.
They are now getting exponential reach on their videos, which is driving a bunch of
traffic to their website and a bunch of new customers to their business.
The other way to do it is to build your authority through thought leadership.
How do you do this?
You need to jump on to timely topics!
Whenever there is a new development on social media, I want to hop onto it, share news about
it, create a video about it, put it on youtube, share a tweet about it ect.
I want to do this as fast as I can so that I'm the first to share it and I gain the most
eyeballs onto my content.
So the two ways you can build your authority is through thought leadership and through
Step #2: Provide a call-to-action: There's two methods for this step.
You can do client acquisition, which can be if you're doing a live stream or a YouTube
video, you just need to provide a contact detail.
Give people your email address, or your phone number.
Another way you can do this is to set up 15-30 minute private consultations with your audience.
Let's say your a graphic designer, you can hop on the phone with a potential client who
may be viewing your YouTube videos or livestream and explain what you can do for them or for
You can offer a mini audit of their brand - this is one way to actually get those viewers
to turn into customers.
The other way you can share a call-to-action is getting people on your email list.
This is your best customer data base online!
Get them off of just viewing your content, and get them onto your email list.
When you do have something to sell, or you want to pitch your services, you need to have
a place to do that.
Algorithms changes on social media all of the time, so you want to make sure you have
an email list set up because that is not changing any time soon.
It's really that simple!
If you want to sell your services online, build your authority through those methods
that I mentioned, and give people a way to contact you to become a customer.
Simple as that.
