Interacting With Your Fans Will Lead to More Sharing

Yes, interacting with your fans will lead to more sharing… and more people finding you, and today I’m going to share an example with you to illustrate this.

I’ll also show you LIVE how turn someone who didn’t know me from Adam yesterday, into a real FAN, from scratch!

Stay tuned…

That is what I did this morning, sharing my most recent blog post with a new potential fan.

I found out that this page (Positive Energy Only Vortex) shared a photo which I had shared on Facebook as part of a collection of photos to connect people with their creative self.

How did I find out? By looking at my notifications.

Let me back up a moment.

This started with Deedar Shaikh liking a bunch of these photos in the collection I mentioned.

I noticed him doing that yesterday, by looking at my notifications, and appreciated his attention to my creative work.

Here’s what I did: I commented on the photo that he commented on. You can see that here:

Deedar commented on this photo and I replied to him. Click the photo to connect with us!

Deedar commented on this photo and I replied to him. Click the photo to connect with us!

This is what happened after I replied to his comment:

Here’s what I realized:

1) When your friends or fans interact with your posts (like, comment or share), new people can discover them because of that activity.

2) When you respond to your friends’ or fans’ comments, your post will be shown to more people again.

So the way to make this work for you is to post something valuable to your friends or prospects (I’ll show you an example in a moment) and then allow the likes, comments and shares to build up for a while, while you do other things. And then return and like their comments and/or respond to them, making them feel special and important.

Okay, here’s the example:

My recent grateful and self-empowerment post

My recent grateful and self-empowerment post

There was this much meaningful engagement because the words and energy of my post and photo resonated with my friends, and also because I responded after the first round of engagement subsided, or rather, after 40 minutes. I simply liked each of the first four comments, sent them good vibes and wrote one quick comment. Then the incoming interaction increased, and you can see that today there are 74 people who liked the post.

It didn’t start out that way, just a few people liked and commented. But by responding to them, more and more people were drawn in.

Take what you’ve learned here today and extend your reach and your network by interacting with your fans.

A couple more tips:

1) Share your posts with the world, instead of just with your friends.

2) Make your profile wide open to the world. Allow people to follow you and allow friends of friends to comment on your posts. With a limit of 5000 friends, it’s hard to accommodate everyone so making your profile just as good to a non-friend as a friend is a very inviting thing. (Thank you Adryenn Ashley for this tip.)

By the way, the page that shared my photo (Positive Energy Only Vortex) is run by someone like myself. Here is the About section on their Facebook page:

I used to call myself the Energetic Connector, connecting the leaders of the light tribes. Since then, it has become more truth than fiction, and I now serve heart-centred entrepreneurs, spiritual people and healers, helping them build their tribes so they can impact more lives and life their dream lifestyle.

So, you see how sharing your true self attracts people like you to you. And when you’re connected with like minded people that all want the same things, you become more powerful and it’s easier to succeed in your mission.

Here is a touch I made to initiate the conversation and relationship with the owner of the page:

Here is another example, from right now. This page (which I didn’t know existed until now) shared my content:

That’s my previous post, the one I wrote this morning, sharing the message that was put on my heart to share with my tribe and the world.

I left this comment to thank the person sharing:

And I also shared her post into a group where I thought people would like to know about her:

Although it mostly looks like my post, I did use their words and it does have a link to their page.

Here is what the person behind the page did to respond to my comment on their share of my initial post:

And there, I shared with her this post you’re reading now, because it continues, building on the thoughts of the first post… so that if you apply what I taught in the first post, creating content that teaching people how they can connect with their true self (as Esther Bartkiw has with her gift of being more of your own soul’s energy and removing foreign energy entities, which you can get at her website by entering your name and email under Do This Every Night Before Bed For An Instant Shift, as seen here: )

… if you create that content and share it, you’re going to start attracting people and if you’ve never done this before, then you’ll be building your tribe from scratch… or if you’re already a publisher, you’re just going to be reaching people at a deeper level and attracting more authentic people like you into your life… and what are you going to do with that attention? This post you’re reading now gives some suggestions.

Back to Esther Bartkiw’s example. I wouldn’t have known that she has that full protocol available to everyone for free from her website, if she didn’t tell me on this post when I mentioned her soon after discovering her through Eram Saeed (and her telesummit From Heartache to Joy.)

So do as she did, and interact with your fans! She just got herself another backlink (from this post you’re reading) and perhaps a new stream of subscribers as I tell people about her.

You might be wondering how I got her to comment on my post? Well, after I found her and decided she was awesome and someone who connects people with who they really are (these people are my tribe), I decided to reach out and connect with her. I searched her on Facebook and sent her a private message and a friend request.

In another post I will show you examples of the kind of private messages I might send to someone as an initial touch.

Here’s another example. On my grateful and self-empowerment post, I left a comment today (11 days after the previous comments ended) linking to this post you’re reading now.

Pete Taboada, who sent me a friend request yesterday (which I accepted) and who is an awesome artist, commented on it, and you can see our little conversation here.

What I didn’t show you is how I interacted with a few of his posts today.

And back to the post we started with today where Deedar Shaikh’s interaction inspired me to tell these stories… I responded there again and linked to the earlier post from today.

And here’s a bonus example. Errity Green was the inspiration for my post yesterday (that’s a good practice, allowing your tribe to inspire the content you create to serve them) and today she has commented on my share of that post (How to make your Facebook posts visible to the whole world, instead of just your friends.)

Click the image to visit the post

So, I’ll show you how I responded to that just now:


The post I saw of hers (and I saw it because I went to her wall, probably after she had interacted with my posts, so I knew she was getting value from what I’d been publishing on Facebook lately) was this one, and only her friends could see it:

Click the image to visit her page, give her a like and reach out and connect if you're called

Click the image to visit her page, give her a like and reach out and connect if you’re called

Now the world can see her post, because I cared about her personally and sent her a message about it.

The private messages, the start of our conversation about this

The private messages, the start of our conversation about this

Now, I’ll let you in on a secret. While I was on her wall just now, I noticed over on the left hand side, under her most recent likes…

How I discovered the Female Entrepreneur Association

How I discovered the Female Entrepreneur Association

The Female Entrepreneur Association. This is a page, where I might want to target my Facebook advertising to their fans.

Also, one more tip… If you also visit the page linked to by See More Suggestions and save that link too (here you go) you’ll see similar pages and can discover more great places to meet more of your ideal clients, referral partners or JV partners, whatever your intention may be. Here’s what it looks like:

I add this page and the similar pages link to one of my spread sheets which is a list of influencers or top websites where I can meet people (there are lots of ways to meet people with your message, such as guest posting, being interviewed, advertising on the website)… When you want to build a big platform, a big tribe, in preparing to “generate targeted traffic” as they call it in online marketing (which means meeting the right kind of people that you can help) you should make a list of the top websites and influencers.

Here’s an example of me doing that for one of my supporting sub-missions: healing the relationship between spirituality and money, so that healers and spiritual people can realize they can have it all!

[Video] Build a Big Tribe – Prepare – Create a Targeted List of Influencers Part 1/2

Part 2/2

And finally, I’ll show you an example of something I just did when I was in The Spiritual Entrepreneurs group posting a link to my new blog post of this morning. I looked around a little and saw this post…

That was something I could add to. And this is great targeted content marketing by the way. Often it’s the photo that  captures people’s attention first and she’s asking a question there that her ideal client will identify with. Very smart.

Here’s the comment that was already there, and you’ll see my comments too.

I resisted the urge to brag. I almost wrote about an experience with someone I was doing a complimentary consultation for, where they told me I really understood her, I “got her” and that when I shared ideas with her, she could really see how it all fit together and how it made sense, but when others would share things, it would just make her overwhelmed because she didn’t see how the pieces fit together. Well, I’m going to give thanks to Sean Mize, one of my coaches, because he helped me see the whole online marketing system holistically, and that’s one reason why I could communicate with her in that way.

They say the wisdom is knowing a lot but not saying it.

Here’s what happened next. She liked my comment there and she started following my posts.


Then I saw that she liked one of posts which was for people starting out.


Then I noticed she had sent me a friend request. Maybe she actually did that first, and that’s what notified me that she followed me.


I accepted it, and as I always do, I sent her a message. Friends without any conversation will be useless to you. You have to communicate with people, like I’ve been showing you all through this post today, to build relationship and trust with them. And that’s where the gold is, in building real relationships and seeing where things go.


Instead of letting her know I’d be happy to be a resource to her about coaching / marketing coaching services, I just left it at that, and let her talk. I can always tell her things later. It’s important to build rapport with people first. Keep it really simple, and you’ll be able to connect with so many more people with so much less effort.

I goofed and pasted the image into the chat box (don’t do that!) but I made up for it by quickly answering her question and being honest about what I was doing so she wouldn’t become suspicious and distrust me.

There, see, I told her I’d be glad to be a resource to her, after we established some rapport.

See what happened there? I genuinely cared about her as a person and shared a helpful tip, and I created a real fan. You just witnessed that today in real time. I just literally did that from scratch with someone who didn’t know me from Adam yesterday.

And I shared a few mp3s with her.

Yes, purpose is super important. Start with your purpose. Make it clear.

And work on it joyfully every single day!

Find your IKIGAI – Japanese for “reason for being”

My comments on Angella’s post in The Spiritual Entrepreneurs group actually attracted me another connection. Well, they got me one more like. But the person who liked my post I deemed a good person to connect with, so I left a comment on one of her posts on her wall. And she sent me a friend request too. I show the details in this video:

How to Connect More People With Who They Really Are

So, you love connecting people with their true self, with who they really are…

Today I’m going to share with you a way that you can connect even more people with who they really are.

What you love to do, that is your gift! By sharing it you’re going to impact many, many lives!

Yes, you love connecting people with who they really are…

So do I!

Hi, I’m Bevan Bird and I’m glad you’re here. Here’s how glad I am:

Handstand by Bevan Bird

Like myself, you have you own unique way of encouraging, reminding or inspiring people to live their own life authentically being their true self, allowing their light to shine, discovering their gift and sharing it with the world.

Here’s how you can connect even more people with who they really are:

Codify a process that you would go through with someone to help them connect with their true self, if you were with them in person… and teach this for free online in a video, audio, blog post or article.

People will be able to do it their self.

Don’t worry!

It won’t cut into your business.

In fact, it can help your business flourish.

You’ll be helping more people connect with who they really are, you’ll be fulfilling your mission here on Earth, and some of the people who discovered your life-changing content will do various things that will benefit you.

Some of them will share your content with their friends or networks. And you never know who you’ll reach. (I’ve been pleasantly surprised multiple times by the influential people who let me know they were impacted by my content in the past.)

People share stuff that changes their life or that they think would change their friends’ lives.

Some of them  will opt in to receive your gift (click here for an example) and give you permission to keep in touch, so you can build greater trust and relationship with them over time – and some of these people will appreciate more of your help and want your help as a coach and may hire you or purchase your products and services.

Some of them will sign up for your newsletter or follow you on social media after ‘meeting you’ via you life-changing content, because they want more… they love your energy and want to be around you more, want to learn more from you, or want your help to go deeper than they could by following some Do-It-Yourself information you’ve shared online.

You are an infinitely-unfolding and expanding being, there’s no way you can be completely replaced by your content!

You can always dig deeper.

You can always look at things from a new perspective.

You might have to use a different approach to help a particular person such as telling a different story, using a different analogy to truly help them understand their own magnificence, and give them a new realization of how amazing they are!

And so, your light will always be needed.

The way you work is unique, evolving and can never be fully defined.

Even if you have a solid codified system that you go through with clients, you are full of potential and able to evolve to meet individual needs in every single session.

By sharing your process with the world, you’ll be empowering far more people to connect with who they really are, the world will be a happier place and your business is going to grow, too.

I hope I’ve convinced you to share your process with the world by posting it online in a variety of media.

Write it, speak it, shoot a video.

Please begin sharing more of yourself with the world.

We need you to shine brighter and impact more lives. We need more people who have come alive, and you’re the one to show them how!

Please create more content teaching people a way they can connect with their true self.

And if you already have, do more.

If you have already, then please share that content with me, so that I know you exist and so I can reshare it with my network.

I love connecting people with who they really are, and to impact the whole world, I’m going to need your help! I can’t do it alone.

Let’s work together to reach the whole world and create a world where everyone lives in joy and abundance, doing what they love.

I’m all for right livelihood. Are you?

Thank you.

So, please share your content (that helps people connect with who they really are) with me so I can pass it on to people who are looking for your help, and maybe I’ll introduce you  to other awesome people like yourself so you can be friends or even work together to accomplish your mission even better. We could all use more support, right?

You can connect with me on Twitter here and on Facebook here and please share your amazingly valuable content with me, whichever way you want to!

I look forward to hearing from you, meeting you and knowing you one day!

Much Love,

Bevan Bird

P.S. If you want some help building your authentic tribe, I’ve created an ever-expanding resource for you here:

How to make your Facebook posts visible to the whole world, instead of just your friends

I noticed my friend’s post today inviting people to join her movement, but only her friends could see it! What about everyone else?

She could increase her potential reach by making it so that her friends of friends or the public can see them. You can do this too, so that more people can see your posts, and you can gain followers and new friends easily.

So, I made this quick tutorial to show you how to make your Facebook posts visible to the whole world, instead of just your friends.

She told me she was using her mobile and doesn’t use the Facebook app. If that’s you too, then these images will be pretty much what you will see too.

First, click the symbol below the text entry box, circled in green in this image: (The symbol may be different, it doesn’t matter what it is, just click the button at that location.)

Or if you’re already updating your status, you’ll click here:

Then select Public, so that more people can see your posts, and you can gain followers and new friends easily.

Then, the setting will have changed, and your post will be able to be seen by anyone, instead of just by your friends. This way new people can discover you and the amazing gifts you bring to the world! And more people’s lives be changed for the better. And you can earn more money and live a better lifestyle too. Everyone wins.

Write something thoughtful that will help your friends better their life. Here’s an example:

Build a powerful network

Every time you go on Facebook, make sure you communicate with your most influential friends who are like minded and who are doing what you want to do, or already are where you want to be in life, rather than just anyone.

Who you communicate with on a daily basis matters and has a large influence on where you’ll be in the future.

Believe in yourself.

When I posted that, it positively impacted my friends’ lives:

Post and feedback

Post and feedback

You are welcome to take my words and simply copy and paste them as your own post. I’m giving you the rights to do that, right now! You don’t have to attribute me or anything. Simply copy, paste and post :-)

Now that you have changed your privacy setting to public, that will be the default from now on, until you change it again. You’re going to reach way more people in the coming days, weeks and months! Yipee!

Russell Monsurate teaches Health, Wealth & Happiness. "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

Russell Monsurate MD (Alternative Medicine, India) teaches Health, Wealth & Happiness. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Why not open the door to Health, Wealth & Happiness with me?

Would you like to get off the treadmill called the rat race? Have you touched rock bottom in your finances and are looking for a way out of your financial woes? Are you addicted to spending more than you save? Have you been swindled in a business deal before? Do you want to retire financially secure like me?

Are you stuck in a belief that you will need to reincarnate thousands of times to get a glimpse of what enlightenment is? Have you spent a lifetime reading thousands of books, visiting temples and churches, climbing mountains in search of the Truth, and not finding it… not realizing that all happiness arises from within and only when all barriers and trappings of ignorance are removed by the Teacher / Guide and the life within you is allowed to shine through?

Contentment and wisdom lead to supreme happiness.

Inner Awakening! Exclusive Interview with Sri Tathata at Van Dusan Gardens, Vancouver, Canada

Last spring, in Van Dusan Gardens, here in Vancouver (Canada), I was honoured to get the opportunity to interview and film Sri Tathata (with his interpreter). He is an authentic Master or Sage of South India.

Inner Awakening! Exclusive Interview with Sri Tathata… Watch the video here:

In the video, I ask a question at 6:40. It’s so great to see them laugh!

The question that was asked before this video started was “There are a lot of inequalities in this world, [Sri Tathata] mentioned earlier that if we see suffering, we should help those in suffering. I wanted to know if taking action such as going to a protest or chanting and meditation is more effective in creating change, or should we do both?”

The answer is Inner Awakening! Have an inner awakening.

Whatever question you ask, that is the answer. To connect with others, connect with yourself. That is, your higher Self. Source.

Abide as the True Self, as Ramana Maharshi says.

I was given the opportunity to film, record and participate in this interview with an enlightened master of India, by Alice Zhou, President of Gracious Host Events. Thank you.

Alice Zhou said, “Great job capturing this, Bevan!  Thanks for your loving presence and open mind to this timeless wisdom.”

Here is a video which my friend – a very wise and successful businessman – who helped me shift my state (vibration) when I was in a low place financially and energetically in 2012 – he shared this video with me so that it would be easy to discern if a spiritual teacher was a true teacher or a fake. (This is because spiritual entrepreneurs, spiritual teachers, transformational coaching are kinds of people I connect with and collaborate with. He was looking out for my best interests. Which is what we should all do for others. Communicate with love.)

Ramana Maharshi is the guru of my friend’s guru. Enjoy.

There is a place of perfect peace within you.

That reminds me, another video which is good for returning to the “safe island of mindfulness” is this one…

Impossible Magical Real Almighty Truth Power Authority Experience

Bora Bora ~ Le Moana Intercontinental Resort

Bora Bora ~ Le Moana Intercontinental Resort

Today by the sea side I had a conversation with a man who many misunderstand, but who shares some deep truths.

If you listen, you will learn a bit about how you can connect with anyone. (By asking people questions that they enjoy answering. By expressing interest in them. People want to be appreciated. They want to be understood. Giving them the opportunity to tell their story will make them feel special.)

Notice the questions I ask him and how I (sometimes) direct the conversation…

Another reason for sharing this… I like to share the Truth of Reality. I can’t say “Truth”, because if we express Truth in language it is not longer Truth. But you know, things like: you are not your human body. You are an infinite being. You are an infinite immortal being. And your natural state is joy.

Here is part of that conversation…

Getting Ready For a Telesummit

Tulum White Sand Beach Riviera Maya Mexico Vacation Beautiful Paradise

A friend of mine, Juhl, invited me to speak at her telesummit after I interviewed her as part of High Vibrational Connecting.

Today I had a great conversation with Ferial Puren – she helps people come alive – and I sure want more of that! She’s an amazing energetic speaker.

We planned our interviews (I’ll interview her and she’ll interview me) and also came up with some ways we can collaborate, which is also excellent!

Here’s my update for today…

You can get the gifts I mentioned by joining my tribe at High Vibrational Connecting.

Here is the first part of my recent conversation with Eve Gersich (on connecting through our content, being a valuable resource, connecting with people and building our platform.)
