Regina Anaejionu – Audience-Building Ninja
If you run an online business or market your IRL (in real life) business primarily on the Internet, then you already know how important it is to build an engaged, authentic audience online. You need a platform–a clear and powerful platform–from which you spread your message, launch your products, and wow the people spending their valuable time and money with you.
That’s where Audience-Building Ninja for Authentic Solopreneurs (#AudienceNinja) comes in to help. This is an intense, 21-lesson course for people who want to help others through their knowledge, gifts, skills, and passions. If you’re interested in making a difference for people with what you provide, then #AudienceNinja is for you. If you’re interested in “get rich quick” businesses, then #AudienceNinja is definitely NOT for you.
Hi, I’m Regina, and I’ve gone through a lot of trial + error over the last 18 months of building both my email list and Pinterestfollowing to 10,000+ connections each, with thousands of followers and friends on Instagram, Twitter, Periscope (oh, and here are some replays), YouTube, Facebook, and Google+ as well.
