April Sutton was fit. She had a six-pack and knew her way around a weight room. She could even make appearances as a stuntwoman in Hollywood films.

But, Sutton didn't have a following that could help her turn her skills into a business. She had to build that using three simple strategies.

The first strategy was to post consistently. As Sutton says, you can't expect to go viral with your first Tweet or Instagram post just because you did something cool. It takes time and effort to build a following, and so Sutton tried posting on Instagram at least once a day. It sounds simple, but it makes a big difference when your followers know they can expect regular content from you.
