Shift is 12 months of customized strategy and coaching for bloggers, influencers, and content creators who are ready to have a consistent monthly income.

Step One: Hone in on Your Audience

The first thing I would do is to hone in on who my audience is and what their pain points are that I can solve through my content. I would really lock in on their demographic, what their interests were, and speak to them in every piece of content I put out so I was sure it would resonate.

Step Two: Write 3-5 SEO'd Blog Posts a Week

I know! It sounds like a lot. But, you're asking me what I would do and this is what I would do. I would create a system so that I could quickly write blog posts so I could get as many out as possible. I would use a tool like RankIQ or KeySearch to help me choose the correct SEO keywords in bulk for the blog posts, and then I would batch my work! Listen in to how I batch blog posts in this podcast!

Step Three: Instagram Reels + ManyChat

I would then create Instagram Reels that targeted my ideal audience! I would create as many per week as possible. If you're not comfortable on camera or just not feeling like your reels are converting, use B-Roll of you doing what you do best, or in a pinch, stock videos that still fit your vibe. I would do this to grow my email list and then use a tripwire to upsell them on a low-cost digital product! I would make sure that I use ManyChat on almost every single reel to grow!

Step Four: Tripwire + Digital Product

Once I had all three steps above done, I would keep growing my email list with ManyChat on Instagram Reels and once sign up for my email list I would offer them a digital product for purchase. Then I'd keep creating freebies that have tripwires attached to them. If I wanted to grow fast, I'd probably make a new one every month!
