5. Mention AllTakes in content that you release.
Do you release content? Where does your content receive the highest amount of views? The next time you release a new piece of content, use this opportunity to mention your AllTakes business. You want your AllTakes business announcement to be where you have the most impressions, which is usually your content (video, podcast, blog post, etc.). Remember, do what you believe is a tasteful amount of promotion. You know your audience better than anyone.
6. Add AllTakes to your social media banners.
This one is as easy as it sounds. Update your banners on social media to announce your new community offerings on AllTakes.
7. Collab with other community leaders.
Are you friends with any other community leaders in your space? Do you follow or know any other Coaches on AllTakes? Consider co-marketing with these folks to share the news about your AllTakes offerings with outside circles to reach more people.
8. Find adjacent communities.
Where do other communities in your topic space live? Find Reddit threads, Facebook groups, forums, or brick-and-mortar bulletins where you can promote your AllTakes offerings with folks who already share your passion. Make a post in these communities sharing your offerings on AllTakes, and it’s likely you’ll add a few more folks to your community.
9. Stay confident, patient, and persistent.
You must buy into your AllTakes launch. If you don’t commit fully, your fans or followers will likely feel the same way and not commit either. Also, don’t get discouraged if you are slow to start. Coaches grow their businesss over time. So keep on it, and keep driving traffic to your AllTakes business throughout the year!
