3 Digital Mentors to Grow Your Business

3 Digital Mentors

If I’m lying on my death bed with only minutes to live and you ask me for 3 digital marketing resources, this is what I’ll tell you…

“Fuck off and give me more morphine!”

And then I would recommend these 3 geniuses to take your business to the next level 🙂

(In no particular order)

NEIL PATEL

From cleaning toilets to the top of Google for the insanely competitive term “Online Marketing”, Neil brings the energy and wisdom required to generate massive website traffic.

In a recent YouTube video Neil said the 3 things that helped him grow his brand the fastest in the early stages were:

  1. Infographics
  2. The “Who is Neil Patel” Campaign
  3. Free Tools

Infographics boosted his backlinks and thus his Google rankings.

The “Who Is Neil Patel” Campaign generated social interest and direct Google search requests, improving his Site Rank and brand value.

The Free Tools generate a ton of traffic.

What kind of free tools?

Anything someone is currently paying to use.

Neil noticed that people use keyword analysis tools, he bought a company and gave the tool away for free. (UberSuggest) This creates a ton of traffic, grows his database and gives him a marketing funnel to sell his products and services to.

Of course Neil moved on quickly from the early days and drops knowledge weekly on his YouTube channel and killer website.

He’s also an investor in Twitter, Uber and Snapchat among others.

But why should you give a shit?

If you’ve tried social media marketing and failed, or haven’t taken the leap because you don’t know where to start, then you need GaryVee in your life.

HOT TIP

Gary Vee recommends advertising with Facebook Dark posts for top returns.

These are essentially native ads – ads that blend with the content – and returns are great.

If you don’t know how to do this, here’s another Gary Vee tip… “Use Google dick. Search “How Facebook Dark Posts work”.

SUMMARY

What do these 3 marketers have in common?

They are building brands.

They are not trying to game Google or Social Media.

They are trying to build the best content available and distribute it, passionately.

They are helping people with actionable tips and growing killer brands doing it.

They create value!

Do the same in your business and you’ll succeed.

Gain the respect and trust of your clients and they’ll buy from you loyally for years to come.

That’s my 2 cents, time for more morphine.

Peace.
