Ok, now you know who Tori Reid is?
Let’s move to our Interview with Tori Reid.
Q. How did you start your journey in Online Business?
A. I was a college student working full time waiting tables, and my life just wasn’t turning out the way I wanted it to.
School wasn’t fulfilling me, and my job made me feel depressed. I was tired of the system.
I asked myself “what skills do you have that you can freelance and charge for?”
And the answer was writing. So I found a site called Elance (now UpWork) and started applying for writing gigs. That’s how it all began.
Q. What drives you the most to do better in business?
A. My audience, students, and clients. I really get a kick out of helping people.
I love the money, don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t until I found a love for the people I was serving that I really started to take off.
Q. What you mainly do to grow your business?
A. I focus on quality over quantity with traffic & engagement, and quantity with pricing (scaling my prices quickly on my products & services).
This model allows me to make more money by making a big impact on fewer people.
The relationships and impact I make this was more fulfilling. And it feels like less work for more money (even though I still choose to work really hard)
Q. Would you be so kind to share your best strategy or tip that works to grow your Online Business?
A. Obsess over your audience, not your idea.
Q. What tools or software you’re using to grow your online business?
A. Facebook & Clickfunnels.
Q. What traffic methods you use to promote your online business and why?
A. Influencer marketing for a few reasons. It kills multiple birds with one stone. You get to increase your authority, endorsements, and general word of mouth.
You get more meaningful and fruitful exposure/traffic. And you get to make a lot of awesome new friends in the space.
Finally, I prefer influencer marketing because once you build your network there’s no algorithm change or tech glitch that can bring your traffic method down.
Your network is yours for life. You own it, and you control it, so it’s 100% worth it and secure.
Q. What are the books you recommend to read to the Marketers?
A. Expert Secrets by Russell Brunson is a must read for everyone who wants to build a following around their brand.
Even if you don’t want to call yourself an “expert” you’ll learn a tremendous amount about why people attach to brands from this book.
Q. What advice will you give who is just starting out online business?
A. Learn everything you can about market research. Your market will literally tell you what to sell them — then all you have to do is create it.
But first, you have to learn how to read & interact with your market, so learn how to perform market research.
That’s it. So this was my interview with Tori Reid.
If you missed this interview then here are my keynotes from this interview.
1. Start focusing on Influencer Marketing.
2. Obsess over your audience, not your idea.Obsess over your audience, not your ideaClick To Tweet

4. Learn everything you can about market research.
5. Your market will literally tell you what to sell them and then all you have to do is to create it.
I hope these above said keynotes will help you to grow your online business.
Further, as you can see in the post where Tori Reid shared her no. 1 secret traffic method to grow her online business and that was Influencer Marketing.
This is the part where most of the marketers in our online industry are missing.
Actually in normal routine just to get traffic to their website or blog most marketers immediately go to Facebook Ads, Google or apply any other traffic method.
Yes, without any doubt Facebook and Google are the largest platforms to get traffic.
But one thing to note here is that when you place ads on Facebook and Google to get traffic to your website or blog or business then most of the time you get cold traffic.
Mean to say, the cold traffic you get doesn’t know about you, your business, your product etc.
This very cold traffic doesn’t have trust on you, your product or service unless you make them aware about your product.
So, just to make them your paying customers, first you have to make them aware about your business, your product or services.
And furthermore, you have to build trust with them as well as you have to build a relationship with them.
But on the other hand, in Influence marketing you don’t have to put many efforts to convert cold traffic into paying customers.
Because in influence marketing you borrow the credibility of well established influencers or leaders related to your niche.
In other words, influence marketing is something where overall focus is on key leaders and influencers to convey your brand’s message to the target audience.
Here you invite, hire or pay big influencers or leaders to get out the word for you, your business, your products or services.
Further, you, your blog, your website, your podcast, your vlog or your business get a status of authority as well as expert related to the specific niche in a short period of time as and when an influencer or a leader endorses you or your business on their blog, vlog, podcast or website.
And yes, one of the interesting thing is that the amounts of traffic you get from influencer’s website or blog or vlog or podcast are already warm.
Mean to say, this type of warm traffic are true followers of their leader or influencer.
Whenever these influencers or leaders endorse you as an Expert or Authority, you immediately get huge of amount of warm traffic to your blog or website with a strong intent to buy your product.
Because they (warm traffic) already have a trust on the recommendations of their leader and influencer.
But here point to note is that your product or service must be something that solves their biggest problems. Right!
Now you might be thinking how you can borrow the credibility of industry’s big influencers or leaders?
How you can do influence marketing to get traffic to grow your business?
Answer is simple!
Approach to big Influencers or leaders related to your niche.
If possible Invite them, hire them or pay them to convey the message about your product or service on behalf of you.
As you can see the example of me where in this post I approached to Tori Reid straight away and asked her to participate in a short interview for the blog post with my questions through Facebook Messenger.
And guess what happened!
She immediately gave her consent for this short interview. It shows how great, humble and generous she is to help others.
Now here what I am doing, I am borrowing her credibility to my blog.
So if you run a podcast or a vlog or have a blog then approach to the industry big leaders or influencers who are expert in your niche and interview them and ask specific questions solving your audience, viewers or readers problem. Ok!
Now you know the No.1 secret traffic method of Tori Reid.
So what are you waiting for? Just go and apply this method i.e. Influence marketing to grow your online business.
