Social Media Marketing

How I build authority with 0 budget

One of my very first questions when I was starting out, was How I build authority with 0 budget. I’m self-taught in Social Media Marketing and Content Creation. No prior knowledge, no relevant studies. Yet, people pay to get my services because they see results. What started as a hobby and a need for exploration back in 2015, became a full-time passion with a goal of providing value.

And everything was done through content alone. Simple, written content on a Google Doc.

Here’s how:

🔹I found a niche I loved and I knew I could provide value (it’s easier to stay consistent if you enjoy what you do)
🔹I built a free blog with WordPress
🔹I created a Facebook Page

And I was writing helpful content regarding Social Media Marketing. I was practically trying things and sharing the results.

A few months later, and while I was getting a momentum, I’ve expanded:

🔹I became more active on LinkedIn
🔹I created a Facebook Group
🔹I started sending Newsletters (with some cool ideas for freebies)
🔹I upgraded my blog into a dynamic website (the first place that demanded a budget but it wasn’t necessary to get started).

⚡I now sell ready-made content, tools, and tutorials regarding Social Media Marketing, Content Creation, and Email Marketing. Who would ever tell?!

This is how I build authority with 0 budget

What I love the most is the people I meet on this journey. We share common interests, work together, and learn together.

🤲And if you are also writing, you know how therapeutic it can be.

This is why I support Content Marketing so hard – it’s transforming my life. And this is why I believe everyone can be a Creator – they only need to find something they love and support it through content.

If you can make money from it, it becomes your loving side hustle 💙

Invest in anything you feel passionate about. Having a goal to serve can upgrade your whole life.

What do you create content about? 🤔
