Ideal Content and Branding Framework 

Alex Hormozi’s New Strategy

Alex Hormozi released a book called, “The 100m Dollar Leads” that goes into the key aspects of posting content online. He talks about the 3 main aspects of creating content and growing his brand; The Hook, Retain, Reward Method. This blog goes into depth on what each of these methods contain and includes some further insight from the experts at Momentum

1. Hook

A hook is the content that we give audiences to redirect their attention from whatever they were doing to your brand. Hooks give people a reason to notice your content. This can include topics, headlines, and more. For instance, Hormozi discusses the 5 topics that grab attention.

1. For past:

These are life lessons. It gives insight to the past experience you or your brand had and help give insights to the audience so they can learn from your past experiences.

2. Recent past:

This can be a calendar breakdown. For instance, look at the past week and think about different events that occurred. Can you find an event to discuss and create content about?

3. Present:

These are in the moment posts. It could be “A day in my life” or an event that is occurring at that very moment. This type of content is create in TikTok or Instagram stories because it is shorter clips that show the instant events going on. For example, at Momentum 360, we like to post content from shoots that very same day on our story. This helps create credible, entertaining and trust worthy content that grows our brand identity.

4. Trends:

Another important type of content is the trendy posts that are circling the internet. Apply your business methods and look through the lens to something happening. Whether it is a meme, audio, or concept, see if you can create content that helps your brand identity but also trendy. This can attract a lot of traffic.

5. Manufactured:

Lastly, turn a crazy idea into reality. This type of content is seen in all different aspects. Whether it’s watching someone eat 500 hotdogs in 1 hour or flipping a house in 1 week. The “impossible” or “crazy” ideas, catch audiences’s attention and hook them into the content.

Hooks can also include Headlines. Whether this is for blogs, articles, website pages or keywords. One of Hormozi’s tips with headlines is to model the news. What he means by this is learn from the different types of topics that the news normally provides. For instance, headlines should consider aspects like; recency, relevancy, celebrities, proximity, conflict, unusual and ongoing stories.

2. Retain

Capturing your audience’s attention is only the first step in creating content. Retaining the audience over time is the real challenge. To get audiences to constantly see your content on an ongoing basis, you must establish several aspects. Firstly, brands must deepen their brand relationship with customers. Consistent content builds a deeper connection between your brand and your audience. It creates trust, loyalty and a sense of community.

Alex Hormozi also discusses Gary Vee’s idea of the “Jab, Jab, Jab…Right hook.” Vee essentially is talking about the amount you give versus the amount you ask for. For instance, when you retain and consistently post content for audiences, they eventually will feel in debt to you. The more you give, the more they are willing to give back. We see this a lot with TV airing and Social Media. For instance, a television episode is 60 minutes long. Researchers have broken it down to a 3.6 to 1 ratio. Thus 47 minutes is content and 13 minutes is dedicated to commercials. Customers are receiving much more content that they are willing and able to sit through commercials. Hence, the “Jab Jab Jab…Right hook” theory. We see this is social media as well. Out of 5 posts, it is a 4 to 1 ratio. 4 posts of content, 1 post of ads. Audiences enjoy and are given the content that they give back by watching the 1 advertisement.

There are different ways in which businesses can format and plan these consistent content posts. For example, content calendars develop a set schedule to have clear expectations for your audience. Whether it is daily, weekly, or bi-weekly, a reliable schedule helps establish a routine for your audience to engage with. Cross-promotion is also very important when it comes to working with influencers or complementary brands. This helps have more unique content and reach a greater audience.

In the fast-paced digital space, consistently engaging your audience is a crucial ingredient for digital success. By creating last connections, your brand’s visibility and credibility will increase brand growth. Remember, the hook is important for grabbing attention, but holding it in the long run is key!

3. Reward

Having an audience that is loyal and engaged with your content and brand is worth celebrating. It is important that your business acknowledges your audience’s commitment. There are several unique ways of doing this.

One of the key ways to reward your audience is by offering rewards. You can create a sense of community and belonging. Your audiences becomes more than just passive customers, they become active participants in your brand’s journey.

Rewards also create positive associations with your brand. When your audience receives value beyond just content, they develop an attachment and increase their brand loyalty. These types of rewards can include discounts, offers, contests and giveaway or virtual events! All of these give a sense of exclusivity and a personal connection with your audience. For instance, Momentum 360 runs a monthly giveaway where customers can win a Free Virtual Tour. This grows the community and builds relationships with audiences.

Audience retention and engagement are priceless assets when it comes to Digital Marketing. By implementing a well-thought-out rewards system, your business not only shows your appreciation for your loyal audience but a mutually beneficial relationship that fuels your brand’s growth and success.

Conclusion:

In the dynamic landscape of digital marketing, the symbiotic relationship between content creation and brand growth emerges as guiding force for success. As we conclude our dive into Alex Hormozi’s Media Content Guide, it’s clear that content and branding goes deeper than random content people post online.
