Have you ever noticed that just about anything and everything can be done from the comfort of your own home nowadays? This phrase remains true even when it comes to building and growing your online business.
In fact, if someone wanted to, they could successfully create an online business only using their iPhone or any other type of smartphone. That’s the power of having a smartphone and the internet, you can talk to and reach just about anyone worldwide.
Leveraging Your iPhone For Online Business Growth
So whether you’re just getting started online, or you already have an online business? These four methods will be perfect for anyone who is looking to generate both more leads and sales. Let’s get started right away.
1) Email Outreach
Email outreach certainly gets a bad reputation when it comes to methods for generating leads and sales. However, that’s only if you do it the incorrect way. From what many online business owners have found is that it’s a great method if you narrow down the individuals to who you will be reaching out.
In other words, this is a perfect method to use from your iPhone. All in all, take a moment to think about the steps that you would have to take in order to reach someone by email.
Arrive at their website, go to the contact section, copy and paste their email into Gmail, write your email and then click send. Heck, Gmail even offers templates that you can save so that it will save you a bunch of time in the process as well.
And why is email outreach so important? It allows you to see if a specific audience is interested in working with you, and what you might have to offer overall. This could be through getting clients, selling software, offering a service, or even selling something as an affiliate.
Heck, you might even have a course or educational training that you’d like to sell as well. If that was the case, you could send them to a checkout page through the use of valuable software such as Kartra or even SamCart.
This method is also perfect because it won’t cost you any money to get started. You just need to roll up the sleeves and start tapping buttons on that iPhone of yours.
2) Social Media Outreach
Social media outreach is the next method on the list, simply because it’s so easy to do. All you’ll need here are some of your favorite social media apps, and the ability to reach out to those who specifically need help.
Notice how it said, “those who specifically need help”? Social media outreach shouldn’t be a reason to randomly send spam messages to those who you are reaching out to. That’s one of the easiest ways to get blocked and even booted (if enough people complain about it).
This method becomes significantly easier if you’ve already built some type of organic following on your favorite social media platform. If you haven’t, then don’t sweat it. Let’s take a look at how you can do that with the next method.
3) Facebook Organic Traffic
While it is certainly true that you can generate organic traffic from every social media platform out there, nothing seems to perform as well as Facebook. This is certainly for the fact that just about anyone and everyone hangs out on Facebook.
There are a few big ways to generate a following around your name or brand. One involves posting in groups or even creating your own Facebook group. By doing this, you can post valuable content in some of the biggest and most targeted Facebook groups that are related to your online business. And you guessed it, it can all be done through the use of your iPhone.
Another great method is to use your Facebook profile as a lead generation platform. You can create a cover that tells your audience what action they can take (such as messaging you or clicking on the link in your bio). Many times, this link will lead to a squeeze page where you can capture leads and follow up with them through email.
4) Recording YouTube And TikTok Videos
Last but not least, your iPhone is going to be perfect for creating and uploading videos for your online business. A few platforms that are ideal for this include YouTube, Tiktok, and even Instagram. Thanks to the amazing technology of iPhones, you can now upload your content straight to your platform of choice through specific apps.
In case you’re wondering if YouTube videos convert? Just take a look at the amount of traffic and viewers that the platform has to offer. As long as you create a convincing video and include a proper call to action, your audience will be able to click a link either in your bio or the description of the video.
At the end of the day, these are four specific tasks that someone could focus 100% on and see pretty great results. Once again, these tasks are all thanks to the amazing technology that an iPhone and many other smartphones have nowadays.
