I agree - and disagree with this one. I always say group building is a long term branding game, but when you start with the right foundations and have funnels and offers in place earlier on, it becomes pretty simple to bring in new sales.
Then it just becomes a numbers game to quickly grow the community so you can have an even more consistent flow of new leads and engaged members.
So if you're scared that it may take some time to get results with a new group, let's lay out some simple math so you can see the exponential opportunity you have to scale your business by growing your group. Check it out!
Let's say your average client is worth $1000 (or insert what 1 new client is worth to you). Let's say in your first month, you grow by 500 members - and don't get a single new client. Sucks - but it might happen.
Month 2 comes, you get up to 1000 members, and bring in 5 new clients.
Month 3 comes, up to 1500 members and you bring in 10 new clients.
The trend continues - and month by month your client roster keeps growing.
By month 6, you will have a ton of new clients if this trend continues. What would that be worth for your business?
I think you can do better than that. Think about how having another 3,000-5,000 new leads in your target market could change your life in the next six months.
Now that first possible dry month doesn't seem so bad does it?
It takes time to build something meaningful - your goal should be to do everything you can and learn everything you can to hit that tipping point ASAP.
