Summary:

What if you could achieve five years of business growth in just three to six months? Would you be willing to do anything it takes to get there? Or would you pan the opportunity if it didn’t fit into your idea of growth?

In this episode of Creativity Excitement Emotion, Amos recaps the Catapult opportunity, shares the trajectory of his journey, what he’s been able to help his students accomplish, the value of living a purposed-based life, and more.

What Challenges Did Amos Experience on the Way to Building His Facebook Group?

Amos recounts how one day he was sitting at Good Kid Coffee in Abbotsford, BC, calling up David to share his new business idea with him.

Amos didn’t have a coach. He didn’t have anyone guiding him. He had no idea what the results of his efforts were going to be. But he got started anyway, believing it was his purpose to create a movement with his Facebook group. 15 and a half months later, he hit over 10,000 members.

Amos was excited about getting started with this project, but he was also scared. At the time, he had no idea that he would end up teaching others how to build their Facebook groups.

There were times when he wanted to give up. He had no idea how he was going to monetize his group. On day 80 of building his group, the right idea finally showed up. In month four, Amos managed to earn $4,000 USD, and in month five, he exceeded $30,000 USD in revenue.

Despite the challenges and difficulties faced, Amos knew deep down that if he waited any longer, 2023 would end up being another disappointing year. So, he leaped and stuck with the process.

Today, his Catapult cohorts are the beneficiaries of the mistakes he’s made and the lessons he’s learned. Half of his students are doing well. The other half are doing amazingly.

While Amos provides the structure and framework for his students to succeed, his students also bring amazing ideas to the table that make it work even better. Some of his students are now doing in two months what took Amos nine months to accomplish.

Amos asks – is now the time to make a change in your life? Are you tired of the way you’ve been living? What do you want to accomplish in 2024, and if you have another year ahead of you, 2025?

If there is a vision or a purpose your heart can’t shake, now might be the time to jump in. It may not be easy, and it certainly won’t be free, but if you’re ready to go all-in on your dream, Catapult is right for you.

A Numbers Game?

David acknowledges that many numbers have been discussed to this point in considering Catapult. So, he asks for Amos’ opinion on whether growing a community is just a numbers game.

Amos answers by sharing that while some grow faster than others, the Catapult program is ultimately geared toward those who are looking to make an impact.

But the opportunity to earn an independent income is real. Amos shares that one of his students recently picked up two clients, not because he was trying to, but because his community was looking him up and learning about what he does.

The average group in Amos’ Catapult program grows by 100 members per week. His top-performing students, meanwhile, have been growing their groups by as many as 420 members per week.

As Amos mentioned in a previous interview, 1 to 3% of new members end up converting to clients. Amos’ cohorts can also expect to land joint ventures, opportunities to speak, global connections, and other amazing perks.

As the creator of your niche group, you will become a leader among leaders. Not everyone likes to serve or would necessarily want your job in that regard. In the short term, it means taking the attention off yourself and focusing on others, but the long term ends up paying off for you because people like to gather where they see a lot of momentum.

Within three to six months, says Amos, your life can transform. It took Amos longer than his students, though he still managed to attract 5,200 members in a year. Some of his students are anticipated to attract 8,000 to 10,000 members in a year.

00:17 – A special message from David Andrew Wiebe

Transcript:

Imagine this:

You’ve just set up a brand-new Facebook group.

You show up for a couple of hours per day to have conversations with your tribe. Your people.

You do it consistently for a month or two, and before you know it…

BOOM!

Your group is growing CRAZY.

Now, you might be rolling your eyes right about now, and I get it. 🙄

First, you’re thinking to yourself, “Well, that sounds like A LOT of work.”

Second, you’re thinking to yourself, “I have no idea how to grow a Facebook group, and I honestly don’t care that much about Facebook.”

Third, you’re probably thinking, “What’s that going to do for me and my career or business?”

You might even be thinking… “I don’t want to become a social media guru. I just want to focus on my art!”

I know EXACTLY how you feel, and I’ve been there.

So, let’s rephrase the question:

What if, with just a couple of hours of effort per day, you could grow your Facebook group by 150 to 200 engaged members per week?

And what if 1 to 3% of those people were eager to listen to your music, hire you for a gig, buy your merch, or collaborate with you?

(That’s anywhere from 1.5 to six high-quality customers or clients per week for those who don’t do math.)

And on top of that, what if you got a lot of other sweet perks on top – free swag, free books, free coaching sessions, homes to stay at in a variety of locations, opportunities to play across the world, and more?

Would THAT be worth your time?

And what if, on top of that, you didn’t have to do it all yourself?

What if you had the support, coaching, and guidance you needed to be able to do the right things to grow your Facebook group consistently?

This is exactly what my friend, Amos Bracewell is offering.

And he and his student groups aren’t just growing by 150 to 200 members per week…

Some are growing by as much as 400, 500, or even 600 members per week.

How does a whopping 18 high-quality clients per week sound to you?

Do you think you might be able to make it worthwhile?

Do you think your musical, artistic, or creative career could benefit from that type of growth?

Fast growth is not for everyone, and I get that…

But if you’re the kind of person that LOVES to serve and make other people shine…

You will LOVE this, and I haven’t seen anything else like it.

But time is of the essence, because:

Amos is only offering a 10% discount for those who sign up before April 30.

Once it’s gone, it’s gone. There will be NO extension.

So, yeah, there isn’t much time…

Even if you’re just thinking about it and you’re not quite sure whether it’s for you yet…

You can book a discovery call with Amos to talk it over.

So, when you’re ready…

059 – From 0 to 5,200 Members… in a Year?!

When it comes to social media growth, we’re all hoping for consistent, reliable growth. Yet, most if not all creators struggle to get new followers each week. It could be because of their content. It could be because they’re nobodies. There are reasons too numerous to mention.

But if you’re willing to approach things in a new way, you could experience unprecedented growth. The kind of growth that helps you build a sustainable income from your passion in a year or possibly even in a few months.

In this episode of Creativity Excitement Emotion, David shares a special message.

From 0 to 5,200 members… in a year?!

So, I’m not sure if you knew this but…

Most effective Facebook groups only grow at a pace of 50 to 100 members per week.

Again, that’s the most effective ones.

Now, that’s nothing to scoff at, but it’s not what you would call… MEGA growth either.

I know that if you don’t already have a Facebook group (or don’t even have Facebook in your crosshairs – because, after all, it’s so old man), you’re probably wondering whether it’s even worth your time.

Well, stick with me here, because I think you’ll be amazed at what my friend, Amos Bracewell, has been able to do.

His strategy has been helping him and his students grow their groups by 400, 500, and even 600 members per week!

Even better, Amos says that 1 to 3% of people joining your group consistently become your clients.

If your group is growing by 600 members per week, that means you’re converting anywhere from six to 18 clients per week!

Now don’t get caught up in the terminology here…

I know some of you aren’t looking for “clients.”

You want streams or customers. You want gigs and exposure. You want to have an impact on your fans. You want to sell your eBook. I get it.

I have very good news for you…

Amos’ method for building Facebook communities doesn’t rely on you monetizing your group through clients…

You don’t even need a product!

Honestly, you don’t even need to be thinking about monetization!

People will read, listen, watch, or buy WHATEVER you have because they will see you as a leader in your niche.

But that’s not all (sorry for the cliché here).

Amos and his clients have landed themselves all kinds of great opportunities, and I have witnessed it firsthand:

  • A couch or bed to crash on
  • Free products
  • Free coaching
  • Free plane tickets
  • High-profile collaborations
  • Joint ventures
  • Opportunities to speak across the world
  • And more… small stuff and BIG stuff!

If you did this…

Could you land yourself some great gigs?

Sync and licensing opportunities?

A record contract?

Look, I’m not giving you any guarantees here.

But the bottom line is, you won’t know unless you try.

And while it would be great if there was all the time in the world to make up your mind…

Amos is only giving us until the end of April to get a 10% discount on his Catapult program.

Maybe it’s right for you, maybe it’s not.

But if you’re the kind of person who loves to support and help others…

If you love the idea of leaving an impact and a legacy…

And you’re at least entertaining the idea of earning a good income from your passion…

I haven’t seen anything else like it.

So, don’t delay…

Have you been trying and failing to crack the code on social media?

So, does any part of this sound familiar to you?

Some expert online tells you “Hey man, all you’ve got to do is A, B, C and you’re going to be a social media rockstar.”

But you go out there and test their tactic in the real world for a month…

And it doesn’t do anything?

So, you start to feel frustrated, angry, and eventually, defeated.

Come on, we’ve all been there.

We’ve all been promised the world when it comes to social media.

But in practice, it feels as though getting any kind of attention, let alone sustaining it, is a Herculean uphill climb to oblivion.

And it is just so frustrating when you’re trying to put your best foot forward.

It takes SO MUCH effort to pump out the content required to get attention…

Yet most of it doesn’t do anything for you!

I know something about you…

I bet you didn’t get into social media hoping to become a digital marketer.

But you’ve effectively been forced into a position where you’ve got to try and figure everything out for yourself…

Scouring the web for disconnected information that’s only available in fragmented pieces.

As if you were moving slowly down a path one inch at a time, as opposed to one stride.

And hoping that somehow, tomorrow, you go viral.

I mean, the rent was due yesterday man, come on.

Well, some of my smartest mentors say you can’t deposit likes, shares, and comments at the bank, and they are right…

Engagement falls under what clever people call “vanity metrics,” and I’m sorry to be the one to burst your bubble, but they don’t mean a thing (if they ain’t got that swing).

But if you thought it was all for naught, think again.

Because there is a way to crack the code on social media.

My friend, Amos Bracewell, recently figured it out and has started teaching others how to do what he did.

He supports his students at every leg of the journey…

And when you hear what it is and how it works, you’ll be BLOWN AWAY.

It’s so simple and yet so authentic and genuine.

You’ll wish you thought of it first.

If you haven’t watched my recent interview with Amos, that’s your homework for now…

Come on, you know you’ve got 20 minutes to spare, especially if those 20 minutes change your life.

So, don’t delay any longer, because as with anything worthwhile, there is an expiration date on this unique offer…

Summary:

Digital marketing is an ever-changing landscape, and it has gotten harder than ever to attract, engage, and retain an audience on content alone. This has forced many artists and entrepreneurs to turn to advertising as the solution. The only problem is… Advertising has risen in cost, it’s more competitive than ever, and without the help of an expert, creating effective ads can be a crapshoot.

In this episode of Creativity Excitement Emotion, David and Amos discuss the solution.

A Delicious Hamburger

David and Amos briefly bond over their love of food. Amos recently had an incredible burger and fries combo in Pemberton, BC, just north of Whistler, and he says he would recommend the place to anyone.

Amos’ New Program

David shares that for as long as he’s known him, Amos has been great at building communities – especially Facebook groups. Amos recently turned his knack for growing Facebook groups into a program called Catapult.

Amos began building his Facebook group, ENTV Today, in January 2023. In one year, he grew the group from 0 to 5,200 members. By month 11, he’d started to clue in that his group was growing faster than most others out there.

He suggests that growing your Facebook group by 50 to 100 members per week is a good pace. But he noticed that his group was growing by 400, 500, and even 600 members per week, completely organically!

That’s when he decided that he should begin showing others how it is that he was able to accomplish what he accomplished.

One of the keys to creating ongoing engagement, says Amos, is bringing people into your house. If all you’re doing is blasting your message into the void of social media, it’s going to be difficult to get noticed and create a connection with your audience. But if you bring them into your Facebook group, you’re better positioned to interact and connect with your audience continually. This also enhances income opportunities.

His first Catapult student started building their Facebook group on February 19. Most of his students are growing by 200 to 300 members per week.

Amos has found that roughly 1 to 3% of your group members will become your clients. That means if you have 100 members joining per week, you can expect to land one to three new clients per week.

Since his students are growing at 200 to 300 new members weekly, they are landing two to six clients per week. If you have four to 24 clients coming in per week, your sales and marketing challenges should be solved, would you agree?

What Other Results Have Amos’ Students Achieved?

Amos has grown ENTV Today to over 9,300 members in a little over a year. Meanwhile, his students have only been a part of his program for one to two months, and already, some of them have 1,000 members, 1,500 members, 2,000 members, and even 2,500 members.

All students are growing by an average of 200 members per week, with 1 to 3% becoming clients. The goal of Catapult, shares Amos, is to help people attain five years of business growth in three to six months. No wonder some of his students have been getting questions about how they’re growing so fast.

Creating a relationship with your leads and customers is paramount to fast growth, and a niche-based Facebook group is going to outclass random and sporadic posting to social media. Well, let’s face it – it’s going to outclass well-planned, organized strategies too.

After the growth phase, explains Amos, comes the monetization phase. Because your audience has had the opportunity to feed on your “appetizers” for a while, when you roll out your “entrée,” people are predisposed to buying.

The Secret Sauce

The secret sauce to the Catapult program is serving from the bottom up. Being a facilitator rather than the “expert.” Instead of focusing on yourself, and doing all the yapping, you focus on others and how you can empower and uplift them. When you help your audience shine, they will help you grow your group.

What Niches Are Suited to the Catapult Program?

David asks Amos whether the Catapult program could work for artists, musicians, visual artists, creatives, and dancers – people who are passionate about their creative craft.

Amos says if you can answer “Yes” to the following questions, chances are you’re a great fit for the Catapult program:

  • Do you like gathering others?
  • Do you like holding space for others?
  • Do you like helping others shine?

If so, Amos is confident he can help you create a community filled with amazing people.

He points out that one of the reasons Oprah Winfrey is successful is because she focuses on letting others be in the spotlight to shine brightly. And as you focus on helping others shine, you will naturally rise to the top as well.

How Can You Monetize Your Facebook Group?

Amos shares that you will naturally attract clients. This is an organic byproduct of being a servant leader. When you have momentum, you will magnetically attract all types of opportunities you might not even expect.

If you have existing products and services, your audience should be ready and willing to buy. Additionally, Catapult cohorts can become affiliates of the program and promote it to people who are interested in setting up a Facebook community of their own.

Other possibilities include collaborations, joint ventures, contract work… Amos says he doesn’t even know what the upper limit on this might be.

How is the Catapult Program Structured? Are There Different Tiers?

The program is still fresh out of the gate. But Amos says he currently offers three-month, six-month, and one-year options. Each of them comes with different incentives and guarantees, depending on your level of interest and budget.

The Three R’s

Amos says he went from $0 to $30,000 in just five months. As he was getting started, he didn’t even know what he was going to promote. He simply showed up to have empowering conversations.

The three R’s consist of Reach, Relationship, and Riches. Amos says the more reach you have, the more relationships you can ultimately build. As a result, you’ll attain more riches. Even if money isn’t a motivator for you, there are upsides. For example, you can create a positive global impact.

Catapult students have been landing joint ventures and even opportunities to speak across the globe.

Why Choose Catapult?

Amos said he almost took another program to grow his Facebook group from his friend Dan. Before he knew it, Amos’ group was growing faster than Dan’s. Dan ended up hiring Amos for an hour of his time to check out what he was up to!

If you’re interested in growing an audience organically, if you’d like to go at a faster pace than even Amos did (which is exactly what his students are doing), and if you’d like to change and impact lives, the Catapult program is for you.
