I'll write out the 5 mistakes here. Watch the video to learn what you can do INSTEAD!


  1. They aren't strategic about their portfolio building.

  2. They try to juggle every social media platform right from the beginning.

  3. They spend too long on their website.

  4. They run discounts with no strategy, and give up too quickly.

  5. They stop putting effort into social media because they "don't have any followers."
