And how would you do this?
Well, you can start with...
The Three-Step 1K Acquisition Framework
Step #1: Reaching to the Right Audience.
Step #2: Getting More Leads, Conversions, and Retentions.
Step #3: Providing the Best Value to Those Who Need it.
Let's talk about each of these in turn.
STEP #1: REACHING THE RIGHT AUDIENCE
Remember this. What you do as a business, freelancer, or remote worker isn't for everyone. There's a saying in sales that goes like this:
When you sell to everyone, you sell to no one.
You need the right audience that will listen, follow, and share you with more people. And this means being able to have followers that will readily accept, live, and spread out your cause.
STEP #2: MORE LEADS, CONVERSIONS, AND RETENTIONS
For any business to be profitable, you need leads, conversions, and retentions. This means having the right kind of prospects (leads) that will eventually buy from you (conversions) and come back for more (retentions).
And where do you get this? You get this from your pool of followers. They start out becoming potential customers. Then they are converted to your product, service, or cause. Finally, they build up the loyalty that will make them your advocates.
STEP #3: PROVIDING VALUE
Let's face it, the core of any business is the exchange of value. You might have a product, service, or cause that is the source of your value. But without the followers that will take it, the value you exchange is as good as nothing.
This is where followers come in. They eventually take in the value that you produce. In turn, they also exchange value in the form of payment or inviting others to your cause.
Obviously, you might have reasons of your own. But in the end, you have to reach the right audience that will become your followers. These, in turn, will become the potential customers that will come back for more. And of course, you exchange value that forms a fitting relationship.
But you have to ask yourself...
How many followers do I need?
Well, let's look at ...
THE CONCEPT OF 1000 True Fans
Have you ever heard of Kevin Kelly's theory of 1000 True Fans?
Well, you have to start with this. You have to look for your first 1000 true fans. These are the right kind of followers you need. Not just someone who followed you on Instagram or Facebook. You need true fans that will bring your level up.
So what's a true fan?
Well, a true fan is defined by three things:
- They will buy everything you create
- They are dedicated to your purpose and message
- They will make sure to share you to everyone they know
Think about a Star Trek fan who often goes to the San Diego Comic-Con. He might know every single aspect of the franchise. He will go to any convention or event with fellow fans. He will buy every product or merchandise. And for the most part, he will fight tooth and nail to promote and keep true to the Star Trek mythos.
Now, imagine having a fan like this for your business, freelancing, or remote work.
That's why you have to start with finding and building up your first 1000 true fans.
But how do you find and nurture your 1000 true fans?
Let's talk about ...

Well, it goes like this...

In doing so, you keep your audience coming back for more. Here are some guidelines you can use:
- Consistency in Publishing. You need to be consistent in creating content and sending it out.
- Rewarding Engagement. Of course, if your content is right, you will have more people engaging and sharing it. Reward the people who engage and share by recognizing them.
- Refining Your Message. Your message to your fans will change. This means understanding what they want and need as you go along.
