Upgrade Your Education Business

07 INTERVIEW: Ludo Millar - "Your network is your net worth"

Listen on

Episode notes

Do you have a community you'd like to nurture?  Perhaps a Facebook group?

One of the hardest parts of building an online community is getting engagement.

If they participate, your content will reach more people.
If they participate, you create relationships.
If you create relationships, you have a better chance of browsers becoming buyers.

"It's not about treating it as a marketing machine" - one of the soundbites from this episode.

And it's so true because to truly start conversations, you have to resonate with your community.

Ludo and I share ideas around:

  • the importance and benefits of building a community
  • ways to create engagement within groups
  • joining/creating the right communities so it doesn't get too noisy

I specialise in supporting education business owners launch, grow and scale on their terms.

Here are three ways to work with me:
