How I Grew Gavin Lira From 12 Followers to 18,000 Using the Dollar a Day Strategy

Wondering how some people rise above the noise and get a high following on their social media accounts? Here’s how I grew Gavin Lira’s account from 12 followers to 18,000 using the Facebook for a Dollar a Day Strategy:

  1. I made posts honoring well-known friends, instead of talking about Gavin. These friends appreciated the compliment and would retweet my tweets to their audience.

2. I engaged in every comment thoughtfully to encourage conversation while the audience was growing.

3. I used the “Dollar a Day” strategy to boost posts that had performed well to get a multiplier effect.

In the last 28 days, 1.4 million people had seen Gavin’s tweets, but more importantly, over 100,000 people had clicked on his profile to check out the rest of the tweets. Of those, 7,500 decided to follow him.

You might say it’s like “throwing raw meat to the dogs,” which is partly true. Yes, I shared posts that received a lot of attention (for example, 1,000 likes on a post honoring freelancer friends in Pakistan), but if I didn’t also tie these posts to my expertise, my followers would be low-quality and random.

So I used high-engagement posts to break through the noise, allowing people to see that my expertise is worth looking at and listening to.

This is actually a relationship-building strategy called FGF— Find, Give, Friend.

And check out where Gavin is now!

If you haven’t leveraged the power of the “Dollar a Day” Strategy, here is a course on Facebook for a Dollar a Day that will get you up to speed!

Marketing Is What People Say About You

When I opened my laptop this morning and saw this comment, I got pink.

Marketing
HotSpot Commented

Your marketing should be what others say about you, like HubSpot is sharing the Dollar a Day Strategy. Everyone should know Dollar-a-Day Facebook Ad Strategy.

So, stop blowing your own horn.

Almost everyone gets this wrong.

Reframe your view of “marketing” from YOU cranking out stuff to promoting what others say about you.

You do 90% of the work if you have customers that love you.

You need to collect, repurpose, and amplify these assets, so they can continue to live forever.

Hence, the whole point is to uplift others, not just shameless self-promotion.

And then your Content Factory will continue to operate without you needing to “launch campaigns” all the time.

What do you think of this strategy?

Decouple Content Production from Content Distribution

Here is a dirty little secret.

It takes ten times longer to upload, edit, coordinate, QA, post, and cross-post than to make the content itself.

I recorded a 5-minute video yesterday on TikTok ads that will be turned into an article and a set of social media posts, editing and distributing them into many channels (blog, book, podcast, Facebook, LinkedIn, email, TikTok, etc.)

But it will take over an hour, even with Descript, Jasper, and other AI tools, to get it processed.

I did a killer 90-minute training with John Jonas on how he built a site with 2 million virtual assistants and how to hire your own VAs to do your marketing. 

But it will take 2-3 weeks to turn around this episode, maybe longer because of follow-ups and confusion from many cooks in the kitchen.

Grant Cardone made a one-minute video for me on how to make a one-minute video. 

Ironic.

But it will take days to run it through the Content Factory and turn it into social media posts that we boost for a Dollar a Day.

The dread of how long it takes to go through this whole thing prevents you from making content, even if you use Fiverr or have an army of VAs.

But what if you needed only 1/10th the time?

Create Content Factory

Would you be willing to make more content like a “walk and talk” in your morning exercise routine, a 15-second tip while you’re driving (hands-free and safely, of course), or a 5-minute “how to” after a frustrating client meeting?

A galloping horde of robots is coming our way, eagerly peddling their automation and tools, proclaiming content nirvana.

It’s all a lie.

Because there is no one tool that “does it all,” even though these software companies put their logo in the center of a diagram with spokes outward to all the other tools they integrate with or replace.

And the social media agencies incessantly bang on our doors, hoping we’ll buy their packages attractively dressed up like Girl Scout Cookies.

But mindlessly posting content X times per week on Y social media channels is dumping more turds into the punchbowl.

No amount of fake followers or bogus influencer campaigns will drive sales. And you know it.

They’re robots, too, just more expensive.

The solution, which is not available for $1,997 or a “secret” mastermind, is to build your Content Factory to process the content you and your customers create.

Check out the Content Factory, a process more than a focus on any particular tool.

It will change how you think about marketing.

I think you’ll find that it’s more about the process to extract what’s in your head.

We are decoupling content production from content distribution.

Sshhh! The social media “experts” will get mad if you know this.

What used to cost us $500 per episode to edit by humans using expensive software over a week now costs $1 and takes 3 minutes.

Automatically trimming the “um’s” and “ah’s,” cleaning up the sound, transcribing, creating social snippets, etc.

Are you excited to finally get your Content Factory going and have the wool lifted from your eyes?

Everything I Do is Content Production

I just came to a weird realization.

Everything I do is content production.

Attend a meeting, respond to an email, write a few lines of code, build a landing page, film a course, negotiate a contract, speak on stage, run an ad campaign, and even make this post.

It’s just content production.

Contrast that with someone that builds physical products or renders a physical service, where you have physical raw materials, equipment, and inventory.

Because I don’t render a physical product or service (except those clever face socks), I’m a VA.

A few friends have stated that I’m the world’s most prominent VA since we have hired an army of them and helped others employ many more.

But if you are a coach, consultant, speaker, author, counselor, or service provider, are you not a VA too?

Why Content Production is Impactful

Most of your job is content production, even if you are technically an attorney or a doctor.

If so, the maximum leverage of your time is to produce “content” instead of processing it, posting it across many channels, or promoting it.

I want to redefine VA as the latter three stages while we, as practitioners, are in the first stage.

If you agree, perhaps we should all be staffing our Content Factories with VAs to handle those three other stages.

My life mission is to create a million jobs for international workers to serve us in this way.

I have explained “how”; it has an embedded video explaining the people, processes, and platforms to enable this for us all.

How to have a significant impact on small ad budgets?

It’s just such an intelligent way to manage risk for people that are risk-averse and hate losing money on ads.

Do a dollar-a-day strategy against your top content that has worked with organic; also have 1-minute video ads that drive eyeballs to the top content.

4 Hidden Secrets Behind Incredible Content

4 Hidden Secrets Behind Incredible Content
Dennis Yu

Building an empire over social media seems different and challenging. However, there are some hidden secrets behind social media which few people can get. Every individual who wants to build a social network for their personal brand is working hard to fit into the system.

Making content is more straightforward than uploading, coordinating, posting, and cross-posting. For example, yesterday, I recorded a 5-minute video on Tik-Tok ads, and it turned out to be an article and a set of social media posts. It took about an hour with the Jasper, Descript, and utilizing other AI tools to manage it. 

It took me almost an hour of a training session with John Jonas about how he created a site with 2 million virtual assistants and how one can hire his own VAs to do the marketing. The episode further will take 2-3 weeks to create a boom in the market, or it might take longer than usual because of some confusion since there are so many different ideas circulating in the scene.

A Minute Hurdle *hidden secrets*

It is rather amusing that Grant Cardone makes me a one-minute video about how to create a video that is one minute longer. But it must consume days to move it by the Content Factory to turn into social media posts that we enhance for a Dollar a Day. There is only one thing that can stop you from creating content: fear of timelessness or how long it will take to go through all this confusion and mess despite having an army of VAs.

A Fool’s Paradise *hidden secrets*

But if somebody gave you 1/10th the time, would you still be eager to create more content, just like walk and talk in daily routine, or it might be a 15-second suggestion between driving a car, or it might be those ‘’how to’’ 5 minutes after a frustrating meeting with a client.

If we imagine a single instrument that can accomplish everything, we are in a fool’s paradise. Even so, some software companies may display their logo in the center of the layout, with spokes extending outward to represent all the other tools they replace. No doubt, there are some hidden secrets behind social media.

Honesty is the Best Policy *hidden secrets*

Our doors are constantly being pounded by social media companies pleading with us to buy their packages, enticingly disguised as Girl Scout Cookies. We are putting other turds into the punch bowl by mindlessly posting on social media, such as X pieces of weekly content on Y social media channels. 

No number of false followers or influencer marketing campaigns on social media will increase sales, and everyone is aware of this. They might even be robots and more expensive.

Be Your Own Master *hidden secrets*

Create your Content Factory to process the content you and your customers create. This is the only solution that does not cost $1,997 or require access to a hidden mastermind.

In the same way that I don’t want to learn how to fix my car but also don’t want to be ripped off by a technician, someone who is too busy to learn about tools might want to look at the Content Factory method. 

You’ll probably discover that it’s more about the procedure to get what’s in your head extracted, altered, and released through various channels. We are separating the creation of material from its dissemination; don’t tell the social media “experts” though; they’ll lose their cool.

It now only costs $1 and takes 3 minutes to edit an episode instead of $500 per episode and a week of labor-intensive, expensive software.

The ums and ahs are automatically removed, and the sound is cleaned up. You are producing social snippets, transcription, etc.

Are you now excited to finally get your Content Factory going and have the wool lifted from your eyes?

The purpose of the Content Factory is to create your content with people who are working for you and will do everything on their own because you hired them and trained them according to your brand requirements. So, what you need to do is learn the process. And the process is about how to build your own Content Factory.
