What's up guys?!
Our social media tools startup guide has dropped and we couldn't be more excited. No, this is not some get rich quick guide we are trying to sell but rather a FREE guide on dominating your niche in social media. Straight information from what we have learned, NO B.S.. We are just out here trying to help you all get started on social media as it is one of the most powerful marketing mediums.
Our guide is the knowledge we have learned thus far, the lessons we have learned and you can learn from in order to save time and money, as well as the tools that we use daily to manage and run our social media platforms. These are the tools that many pages keep secret because they don't want the younger entrepreneurs to know, but now we are bringing them to you :)
The rest of this short blog post is going to be on what problems that this guide solves, which is the most important thing as it shows the value it will be to you.
So here they are...
How To Start Your Business
Ok, this guide is not going to solve every problem with starting your business, but it will for sure solve the problem on starting your business on social media platforms that will help you grow.
Even if your business is not ready to go live yet or it is still a work in progress, you can use social media to build hype and have a more successful launch as you will reach more people right when you launch.
When you start to build a following and audience that cares about what you are doing it builds curiosity for what you are doing and you start to build those relationships even before you business is up and running. Then, once you actually do launch, you will already have a following and they have the potential to be your first customers because you have already formed a level of trust.
The tools in our startup guide can help you pick the platforms and then start executing and creating content even if your main business is not fully up and running yet. Build that hype and start early on the journey to success.

How To Create Amazing Social Media Content
The number one problem many new accounts on social media, in business accounts especially, are around the topic of creating new and amazing content. They might know how to create content but not how to actually make it look good, or they might not be able to do either.
The guide we have created outlines the best tools and apps that we use to create content on our Instagram and other social media platforms as well as the tools we use to edit because its not just about the content but how good it looks and how well it attracts people to learn more about your business.
These tools and apps make it easier to learn how to edit a good picture and create a tone that fits your page, as well as create content such as placing text over images in order to share your message.
Don't be reposting others content, it won't help your business at all and you will be offering no value to your followers because they could just follow those other accounts if they want that image.
Finally, the most important part about creating your content is that is has to be unique to your business, whether that be pictures you take, behind the scenes pictures or just pictures of you for your page. This helps your followers put a brand to your page and builds their trust,
Don't be another one of those quote pages, solve a real problem, there are enough quote pages out there.
How To Automate & Manage Your Social Media Page
There is only so much time in a day so why not automate as much of your social media pages as you can, without ruining the brand image, and save yourself some time throughout the day?
Our guide helps you find the services that we and our clients use on a daily basis to automate most of our content on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc so that we have more time to focus on larger picture ideas...
These help you schedule your posts for the ideal times with the most activity on your platform and they will automatically post the image and caption you upload so you don't have to worry about it.
This is all platforms except Instagram, who's code doesn't allow for automatic posting, yet we even have a tool that does almost all of the work for you. This platform will open the Instagram app for you and go to the post where it inserts your caption and image into Instagram. All you have ti do is hit post.
These are the tools that help you automate your content but they don't automate your interactions and engagements. Those have to be personal to you as they are what helps to build the relationships.
Nobody wants to be having a conversation wit a computer...

The 10x Rule
This is our favorite book from Grant Cardone as it goes over what it really takes to find success and talks solely about the hustle and the mindset we have to craft in order to find success. Not only that, this book gives us step by step instructions on how to actually take action, not just some ideas.
Be Obsessed or Be
Sell or Be Sold
One of the best sales books that we have read thus far. He goes over the unique pieces of information that other sales books don't and then gives us new techniques to try out in regards to our sales. More importantly he shows us the techniques he has used to create his multi-million dollar empires in more than one niche, so that we can put to use similar tactics in our business.
The top sales training program out on the market, used by thousands of people and businesses in order to start getting their desired sales results. Learn how to sell, close, cold call and more from the lessons of a master salesman. Is there really anything more that we could ask for in one program?!
Grant's Other Sales
Other Mentors To Watch Out For In 2017
Gary has to be the mentor that we see with the most momentum coming into 2017 along with Grant Cardone. Gary has been doubling down on his content as well as his businesses lately coming out with a new vlog and renaming his podcast to The Gary Vaynerchuk Audio Experience, because damn that is really what that podcast is, it's so good!
The new vlog brings us into the day to day life of Gary as he shares his hustle with us as well as what his life is like daily. He also shares business, life and entrepreneurship tips all the time on these vlogs and they are fire so don't miss out.
Another thing we see Gary doing recently, which is why he is flying to the top of our mentor list is leveraging his relationships with people inside of and outside of the business industry. Recently, he has really stepped into the music game and other industries meeting with business owners and even rappers such as ASAP Ferg!
This show that Gary is trying to leverage his connections so that he always has the go-to people in every industry in the future. This is a massive step that no other mentor is publicly taking, especially into new industries such as hip hop.
Gary is doubling down on content and so should we, don't miss the momentum.
Andy Frisella is also making big moves outside of his own industry this year after totally transforming the fitness and health aspect of his life last year! Ended last year ad began this year with a new book, but not the usual entrepreneurship books, rather a children's book!
Why a children's book?
Because they are the next generation and if you teach them right at a young age the lessons and habits will stick in their brain. Andy noticed the lack of a book to teach kids essential life lessons, especially around business, so he made one himself!
Andy is also doubling down on his connections and podcast called the MFCEO Project, as he has been bringing new people on and offering more and more value.
We also hear that Andy might have another book, other than his children's series, coming out this year. So stay tuned and lets see what he has coming.
Gerard Adams is not as well known in the business industry as Gary or Andy but he has had a major exit from his Business Elite Daily for $50 million dollars so he kind of knows what he is doing:)
Gerard, much like Gary and Andy also has a podcast called Leaders Create Leaders as well as vlog on YouTube around this same subject. In the podcast and well as vlog he offers advice, shows us his lifestyle (which is pretty dope) and interviews other leaders in their industry for their stories and tips! He recently featured Andy Frisella so don't miss that episode here>>
Finally, Gerard is running a new startup called Fownders to help entrepreneurs connect, bounce ideas off of each other, learn from those about them and gain knowledge based around their niches. It is actually a great concept and we suggest you learn some more about what they offer here..
Hope you all found some more value out of this new post and we highly suggest you watch these mentors to help leverage yourself in 2017. Now go out and get after it, never settle for average!
Well good news because we have just finished this killer book from Grant Cardone, called the 10x Rule.
This Should be required reading for all entrepreneurs and business owners who really want to make an impact so they can create the freedom we want in life!
So lets goooooo!!
The 10x Rule by Grant Cardone
Well, the 10x Rule was created by Grant Cardone with the goal of helping entrepreneurs, business owners and just people in general, get the results they are looking for in all areas of life.
Whether this be better business conversions, a larger audience, eating better, working out more, reading more, or whatever aspect of your life you want to improve. These are the step by step actions we need to be taking in order to make those visions a reality.
The only way we can achieve the giant goals we have set and get the results we are looking for is to take 10x the amount of action that we think it will take. Then there is no way we are taking too little action and sowing our success.
Action is the controllable factor in our success and Grant Cardone teaches us how to master and take advantage of that factor, in order to get what we want out of life, in his book The 10x Rule.
The 10x Rule can also help us take luck and chance out of the equation because when you are taking this amount of action, we are creating our own luck.
This book has to be required reading for all of us entrepreneurs and just those wanting more out of life because it will get us in the mindset of taking massive action because starting your business sis just the beginning, there is so much more.
If you aren't focused on growth after starting that is when results start to slow down and people start to quit. Grab your copy of this book here so that doesn't happen >>
Our Favorite Chapters & Pieces of Knowledge From The Book
Average Is A Failing Formula... I mean this is what we stand for, doing everything above average and never settling for an average life. This chapter teaches us how to do that o how can we not love it?
10x Goals...Learn how to set goals that force you to take 10x more action than you think it takes.

Nuggets of Info From the 10x Rule
“What if the only thing standing in the way of your greatness was that you just had to go after everything obsessively, persistently, and as though your life depended on it?”
“Average is a failing plan! Average doesn't work in any area of life. Anything that you give only average amounts of attention to will start to subside and will eventually cease to exist.”
“Never take the position that things just happen to you; rather, they happen because of something you did or did not do.”
“All the excuses in the world won't change one simple fact: that fear is a sign to do whatever it is you fear—and do it quickly.”
“Success tends to bless those who are most committed to giving it the most attention.”
“You know, you don't need to grow old to die. I was dying at the age of 20 as a result of no direction and no purpose.”
Why We Need This Book
Think about it, actually ask yourself if you are doing what it takes. Well if you are, you probably still aren't because according to the 10x Rule it will take 10x as much work and 10x longer than expected.
But that is what makes the journey so great and fulfilling, not just the rewards at the end but the process of creating something that makes an impact. The weak get weeded out early in the journey and only the strong survive to see their ideas flourish.
What do you want to be, the one that quits next year because they didn't get the results of the one that wins because they saw the whole vision and believed in the process.
Choice is yours, the link for the 10x Rule is right here for all of us who really want it, not just think we want it and will quit but those of us who really want the dream life.
This book helps us craft the mindset, vision and goals that force us to take the 10x action.
Take the action and become great or keep doing what you are doing and possibly never see the end of the tunnel,
the choice is yours!
