That dreaded email from Facebook, saying your account’s been flagged, and you’ve been banned.
The panic overruns your head –
“What the hell am I going to do now?”
“How will I bring in clients without advertising?”
“I feel sick. Am I going to have to try going offline now, and giving up my dream of a location-independent business?”
I’m not saying this situation wouldn’t suck. It would.
But it’s not the end of the world.
There’s this misconception that having an online business can’t be done without Facebook.
I’ll be honest, Facebook is a big part of how soulpreneurs market themselves.
But if Facebook were to disappear tomorrow, I’d be 100% confident we could switch gears very quickly, and wouldn’t skip a beat.
And, more importantly, we could help our clients do the same.
See, one huge problem with a lot of soulful business ‘experts’ is they hang their hat on one system, and look for ways to manipulate that.
They talk about reverse engineering the algorithm.
Or ‘hacking’ whatever the latest platform is.
At Sacred Fulfillment, while we’re very good with marketing your creative business, we teach principles, rather than tactics.
What that means is, how we teach 💖 centered marketing for conscious entrepreneurs can apply everywhere.
Facebook … YouTube … Speaking from the stage … Even direct mail.
Now, if you decide to join the program, we won’t directly teach you these other methods.
After all, Facebook is still the easiest and most scalable method of advertising.
Not to mention, it gives by far and away the biggest ROI.
(We consistently make back $10-$12 for every $1 we spend.)
But, should the poop hit the fan, I know us and our clients won’t be affected at all.
It’s about principles vs. tactics.
Or to put it another way – Fakers vs. people who actually know how to attract the right clients.
So if you’re worried about being over-reliant on Facebook …
Or you’ve had accounts flagged in the past, and are scared to death of being banned …
Don’t sweat it.
Because if you market in the right way, with laser-focused messaging, empathetic copy, and a unique angle –
The platform you market on is arbitrary.
Clients will seek you out, and want to work with you.

P.S. If you’re looking for somewhere to learn Facebook tips and tactics, I’m going to be honest with you –
Do NOT book a call with us.
There are tons of cheap Facebook courses out there.
So if all you care about is getting a lower cost per click, or getting more likes and engagement –
Cool. That’s your prerogative.
But if you want to actually master the art of running a successful creative business, where Facebook is part of the model rather than the end all be all …
