    Why you should give away your best content for free | #AskDavidMeltzer 28

    You don't build your community, your community builds you. The more content and value that you can give away, the easier it will be to grow your community. Give them what you afford to give away.

    Be abundant with your content, consider what content you have that will stimulate people to join your community, transitions their interest, shares a vision with them, and then figure out what content you have will guarantee them profit. Once you figure that out, you can charge start charging them for your content.

    Make sure you guarantee them the value that you are providing. If you are offering more value than you are receiving, why wouldn't they want to do business with you?

    If you want me to answer your question on the podcast, tweet me @davidmeltzer, or email me a video at david@dmeltzer.com of you asking me a question and I will answer it for a future episode!
