How to Create a Community Online with Social Media and Influencer Marketing that Reaches Millions
Updated: Jul 14, 2020
Creating a community online is shifting in many ways.
Years ago, if you would have told me I would have a blog, show, and community online, I would have thought you were crazy. Keep in mind, 10 years ago, I worked as a Chief Audit Executive at an Oil & Gas Company, a far cry from where my passion and purpose has taken me.
I never imagined the joy I could experience sharing with social media, content creation and creating a community online.
Yet, when I look back on the 5+ years of my journey with an online & live business in wellness, marketing and travel, digital and influencer marketing, I am blown away. I see how faith and aligned action has led me in creating a community online, as well as 7+ online courses, launching our own influencer marketing platform, running 50+ campaigns, and reaching 700+ million in reach.
At my core, I love freely make friends, share what I love, and create communities online and live. Don't you?
Let's talk about how to Create a Community Online with Social Media and Influencer Marketing that Reaches Millions.

2013: Start sharing my story using Facebook for Wellness. I started my Instagram account.
2014: My business grows 25X with Wellness & Herbalife on Facebook alone. *Disclaimer not typical, but possible
2015: I begin to figure out my style e.g. wellness, travel for the website, and social media.
2016: I set up strategy, structure, and systems, and get training to create online courses. Start exploring influencers for travel, our retreats, and press trips with Cuba & Costa Rica.
2017: Begin online courses and social media automation across FB, IG, & Pinterest set up.
2018: Set up 12 themes for blogs, podcasts, and social media.
2018: Expand influencer marketing for lifestyle transformation (>10,000 influencers + 2500% ROI).
2019: Tying all above to IGTV, videos, lives for launches of courses & events with tips, tools & tech. Launch our own platform, reach 15,000+ influencers, and over 700 million in reach.
