There's no question that online communities are vital tools for supporting your own learning and for growing your business.

Through these communities on platforms such as Facebook, Wordpress, and Twitter, your students and clients can experience invaluable support from one another as they take your courses or engage in your mentorship, coaching or other services; you can share valuable content that engages your Ideal Client and converts fans and followers to your email list; and when they invest in themselves, like Dominique Hurley did (below), you can use these platforms to multiply the value of any online course that you're offering.

As powerful as they are, in the end these communities are only 2-D. By that I mean, they're composed of connections via a screen.

They lack the face-to-face and heart-to-heart connections with real flesh-and-blood people that you experience when you attend live trainings and events, such as Speak-to-Sell Bootcamp, which is coming up next month.

In these in-person, like-minded communities, you add the third dimension, depth (which is why we're calling them 3-D!). You know you're in 3-D when you can give someone a hug.

The deep connections that you forge at live events pay dividends for years to come in terms of finding joint venture partners who will promote your offerings to their list; getting and giving referrals; getting booked; enrolling your Ideal Clients; not to mention the shared joy of learning cutting-edge material or that missing link that's really going to catapult your business to the next level.

Face-to-face and heart-to-heart connection takes your community into 3-D. You know you're in 3-D when you can give someone a hug!

Still Not Sure?
If that sounds great to you, but you're still not sure if you are capable of turning your 2-D community into 3-D, much less getting new clients and attracting JV partners at live events, then read what Intuitive Art & Inspiration expert Dominique Hurley wrote recently about the process of turning her online community into a heart-warming, real-life experience:

I'm not big on crowds. Never have been.
I may have organized city-wide festivals and love being on stage, but entering a room of 600 strangers isn't something I look forward to.

If you're an introvert or empath, you can relate.
That's why I was so surprised at Lisa Sasevich's live Speak-to-Sell event in San Diego when I experienced the power of my 2-D community becoming 3-D.

I'm one of those who joined social media really late in the game, but I wanted to participate in my online course discussion groups, so I joined in.

At first, it was overwhelming, but the support and help I received when I had questions during my first online course was amazing! I truly learned the value of being a student in a 2-D online community.

So when I joined Lisa Sasevich's Speak-to-Sell course this year, I brought that collaborative spirit to its Facebook group. The exchange was rich. And it really helped me get more out of the course. I didn't have to figure it all out on my own.

And then when I got to her live bootcamp in San Diego, things were a lot different than the huge workshops I had attended before the age of social media!

I can't tell you how many people came up to me and hugged me or said things like: “Oh Dominique, I was so hoping I'd meet you here.” “Thank you for asking that question on the call. I was having the same problem!” “I love your art! I'm so glad we're getting to connect in person.”

I wasn't a stranger surrounded by strangers.
Names and thumbnails were now real live people I'd shared with online. We could skip the small talk and connect at a deeper level.

I couldn't have said it better myself! And if you'd like to turn your 2-D online community into 3-D for the betterment of your own learning, your business, lifestyle, and students, join me live in Las Vegas next month at Speak-to-Sell Bootcamp.

Not only will I personally walk you through putting together your Signature Talk and Irresistible Offer, but I'll also show you the exact business structure and steps I've used over the past six years to bring in $30 million in sales from home, while creating a life of freedom and contribution beyond my wildest dreams!
