One of the people I turn to when I want to learn what’s really working to build an online business is Ryan Lee.

Ryan’s been running his online business for more than 10 years, which means he knows what it takes to succeed long term.  (If you’re looking for a “quick rich” system,  Ryan’s not your guy and neither am I.)

One of the things I’ve seen Ryan do is live “micro coaching” on his Facebook Fan Page where he announces that he’ll be live for the next 10 minutes and will answer any question about online marketing you have.

The only catch?  You have to “like” his post before leaving a comment.

WHY SOCIAL COACHING WORKS

Social coaching works for three distinct but important reasons:

First, you engage your community.  I’ve talked about the importance of engagement previously in this post.

Second, you offer real value, with built-in scarcity & limitation.  You can’t go deep in this forum, but you can give one or two “next step” ideas that the person can take away.

Third, you increase your visibility outside of your community in a non-threatening manner.  This is probably the most important aspect.  When people “like” your post, it appears on their wall for their friends & connections to see.

There’s a decent chance that some of those people will click through to see what’s going on and they, in turn might become a fan of your page.
