    How to get started?

    Hi đź‘‹ Roberto here!

    Welcome to Marketing Supplied! I’m thrilled to have you here. If you’re interested in learning more about me and my journey, feel free to check out my bio here. Whether you’re a new business owner or have been in the industry for years, this guide will assist you in getting started with Marketing Supplied and provide a framework to build your business using social media. Let’s dive in!

    1. Do you have a Canva account? To utilize our templates, you’ll need a Canva account. You can use Canva for free or upgrade to Canva Pro for premium templates and features at $13/month or $120/year. Our templates are compatible with the free version of Canva.

    2. Have you established a brand kit and logo? Create a brand kit with logo variations, colors, and fonts that align with your marketing materials and templates. You can access the Brand Kit template here. If you prefer to hire a professional for this task, we recommend checking out UpWork, Fiverr, 99Designs or LogoAi.com.

    3. Are your social media accounts set up for success? Ensure your accounts are ready for success using our Social Media Audit worksheet.

    4. Get social on Instagram and in the Marketing Supplied Facebook Group! Begin building your online presence by engaging with popular local accounts, influential accounts, and networking with fellow small business owners worldwide. (Suggestion: Enable post notifications for popular local or construction pages to be among the first to comment). Start participating in discussions and asking questions in the Members-Only Facebook Group.

    5. Set up a landing page using a Marketing Supplied incentive. Choose a resource from the Printables section that your audience would find valuable and use it as an incentive to encourage them to sign up for your email list. More details on this can be found in the Email Marketing section.

    6. Customize Marketing Supplied templates and create a posting plan. Refer to the Content Scheduling Guide for instructions on bulk customization of your Marketing Supplied templates and scheduling them in advance for the entire month.

    Need additional assistance? I’ve created a 7-step training specifically to help new members like you get started with utilizing the content. It will provide you with a better understanding of how to use our templates and take advantage of the valuable content included in your membership. Access the Marketing Supplied Quickstart Guide here. Also, make sure to join our Members-Only Facebook Group if you haven’t already. It can be highly beneficial to observe how other members are utilizing the content and ask questions. We’re here to assist you!

    Do you handle posting on my social media account?

    No, the Marketing Supplied membership does not include an automated scheduling or posting service. Our goal is to encourage you to infuse your posts with your own personality and brand, leading to better engagement and the attraction of new followers who can become potential clients. Setting up automated posts for everyone wouldn’t be beneficial as it typically lacks genuine engagement and results.

    Consider us as your marketing mentor instead—we don’t post on your behalf, but we provide you with the necessary tools to take charge of your social media accounts. We are here to assist you in adding your unique personality to your posts, branding your business, and connecting with people online. We want you to have full ownership of your online presence, which is why we equip you with powerful tools.

    Here are some alternative tools that our members often utilize:

    1. Many members prefer to customize their posts in bulk and schedule them at the beginning of the month using platforms like Facebook Creator Studio, Planoly, Plann or Later.
    2. Another option is to hire a virtual assistant or a social media manager who can personalize the posts for you and handle the scheduling. Feel free to reach out to us via email, and we can provide recommendations for capable professionals in this field.
    What type of account should I have? Instagram Business, Creator, and Personal Accounts

    Let’s explore the key distinctions between having your Instagram account set up as a Business, Creator, or Personal account. Personal Instagram:

    • You can set your page to private.
    • Post scheduling is not available.
    • Insights on reach and engagement are not provided.
    • Post promotion is not possible.

    Business & Creator Instagram:

    • Page privacy settings cannot be enabled.
    • Post scheduling is available.
    • Insights on reach and engagement are provided.
    • Post promotion is possible.
    • Inbox tools like saved replies and sorting are accessible.

    Differences between Business & Creator:

    • Currently, scheduling through third-party platforms on Creator Accounts, except Facebook’s Creator Studio, is not supported.
    • Different profile category options are available (e.g., Construction, Clothing Brand, Ice Cream Shop, etc.).
    • On a business account, you can add your business address to your profile.

    For small business owners, we recommend using a Business Account.

    How do you switch your account type? To change your account type, open the Instagram app and navigate to your Instagram profile. Tap the three lines at the top right corner of the screen, select “Settings” from the menu, then choose “Account”. Scroll down to the bottom and tap “Switch Account Type”.

    Does it cost anything to switch? No, switching account types on Instagram is completely free, regardless of the chosen type.

    Will anything change when I switch? No, switching your account type will not result in any loss of posts or other changes.

    Is the switch permanent? No, you can always switch between Personal, Business, and Creator account types as needed.

    Can I use the content for multiple accounts?

    Every subscription represents a single account for a sole member. If you intend to utilize our content for multiple individuals, the purchase of a Multi-License Subscription is required.

    How can I distinguish my company if someone in my market is also a member?

    It’s important to remember that your audience doesn’t follow or pay as much attention to all the companies you do. Even if someone else in your market is using similar content or designs, what sets you apart is how you present it and the unique approach you bring to your branding and messaging. Your distinct perspective, tone of voice, and personality are what make your content stand out and appeal to your specific target audience.

    Here are some strategies to differentiate yourself from other members who use Marketing Supplied:

    1. Utilize ChatGPT to rephrase titles, scripts, and captions in a way that suits your personality and caters to agents in your city—whether you prefer a witty, friendly, or serious tone.

    2. Take advantage of our Quarterly Branding Photo Guides, which provide pose ideas and shots for each quarter. Enhance your results and leave a lasting impression by using professional branding images of yourself.

    3. Set yourself apart by focusing on a niche. Customize your content to address the specific needs and pain points of your target market. Ask ChatGPT to rewrite our content specifically tailored to your niche.

    4. Create a brand kit with designated fonts and colors, and apply them to your templates.

    5. Feel free to deviate from the content calendar as it is. You have access to a full year’s worth of content that you can search through and use at any time.

    If we cancel, are we required to remove any existing posts or will we simply lose access to future content?

    There is no obligation to remove any posts in the event of cancellation; however, access to future content will no longer be available.

    What is the difference between CRMs and Email Clients?

    CRMs (Customer Relationship Management) and email clients are distinct tools utilized in marketing and sales, although they are frequently integrated with each other.

    A CRM platform (such as Real Geeks, KVCore, Follow Up Boss) assists businesses in managing customer interactions and data throughout the entire customer lifecycle. It encompasses a variety of functions, including lead capture and management, contact management, sales forecasting, and analytics. A CRM helps businesses establish and maintain relationships with their customers, track customer interactions, and provide insights to enhance the customer experience.

    Conversely, an email client is a tool specifically used for sending and managing email campaigns. It offers features like email templates, list management, automation, and reporting. An email client is designed to assist businesses in creating, sending, and tracking the performance of their email marketing campaigns.

    To summarize, a CRM is a more comprehensive tool that facilitates the management of customer interactions and data, while an email client focuses specifically on the execution and management of email campaigns. While some CRMs include email marketing capabilities, it is also common for businesses to utilize a separate email client to manage their email marketing efforts.
