Do you have advice that you know people want to hear, and that they could seriously benefit from?
Are you sick of being a follower, and are ready to lead not just yourself, but thousands of other people?
If so, you need to read this article. No matter what industry you’re in or what you’re passionate about, you can get more influential, make more money, and lead a movement if you follow this advice.
Start putting these tips into practice to get people to pay for your advice:
1. Recognize That They Already See You as an Authority
The good news? If someone is asking for your advice, that means they think what you have to say is valuable.
This is the first step to building a mass movement: having a talent, a personality, and a mind that people want to use and follow.
Having other people rely on you and acting as a mentor are great first steps in establishing, recognizing, and building a sense of self-worth.
If people are asking for your expertise or professional opinion for free, however, it’s not that they don’t see you as an authority. However, they are checking to see how you value yourself and your time. (They’re also just trying to save a buck for themselves.)
Make it clear to them that you always work with paying clients first, and then with any leftover time you have, you occasionally over a portion of the advice you give to paid clients to non-paying ones.
This makes the chance that they’ll get your work for free seem unlikely and lets them know that you’re giving better, more complete information to their paying competitors.
Remember that the people who are asking for your advice are already willing to follow you, and think you have skills they can learn from. You should not only be thankful for these opportunities, but you should use them as a foundation to keep on growing.
Even if someone can’t pay you for your time and input now, they’re still a solid lead. One day, they may be able to afford your services. Or, you’ll become so valuable as you grow that they can’t afford not to pay you.
Ask them if they’d be interested in getting on your email list, staying up to date about speeches and events you’re holding, and to follow you on social media. To that end…
2. Establish Yourself as a Thought Leader and Influencer
If you don’t share at least some of your ideas with the world and get vocal about your opinions and abilities, no one is going to know who you are.
It can be intimidating to put yourself out there, but especially if people have already asked for your help, you need to trust that you already have the qualities of a leader.
You just need to go public about it.
When you want to start a mass movement and get people to pay for your advice, you need to establish yourself as a force to be reckoned with in your field. How can you do this?
Start by submitting articles to popular websites that are widely read in your industry. Then, create an awesome and unique website advertising yourself first, then the services you offer.
Remember, potential clients can likely get the advice you’re offering from lots of different places. However, they can only get the benefit of your personality and connections by working with you directly.
Also, look into hosting local events in your area. These can be one-day classes related to your field, or they can be something as simply as charity drives or even sponsored events.
The point is to be a presence in your field, and in your local community. To gain more followers and start a thought revolution with you at the helm, you need to be the person everybody knows.
Even if you meet people who likely won’t use your services themselves, remember that they’re still a gateway to potential clients.
Get active, get out there, and introduce yourself to as many people as possible.
3. Talk About What People Will Get
Finally, when you’re trying to get people to follow you and to pay for your advice, you need to talk to them about how their lives are going to improve by doing so.
This is much more effective than telling people that choose not to work with you for now what they’re going to lose by not taking this opportunity.
First, that just reads as desperate. It also comes across as slightly threatening. And it’s not exactly the kind of language that’s going to make those same clients and people come to you when it’s right for them in the future.

Instead, talk about what people will get when they start following and benefiting from your mass movement.
Will they be able to take more vacations? Will they have more money to spend on the things they love? Will they feel more relaxed, be able to hire more employees, or associate with the kinds of people they like?
Framing your pitches in terms of how people’s lives will get better by picking up what you’re putting down isn’t just effective, it also makes sure you’re always positioning your offerings and services in a positive light.
