Is your social media presence either non-existent or simply an advertisement for yourself? I share - in plain English - how you can use social media to build your personal brand and attract the clients you want. Here are the three main steps -
1.) Use social media to LISTEN first. Everyone is sharing - in public - the things that are most important to them and their business right now. Gather insights using LinkedIn and other social media platforms, and shorten the sales cycle.
2.) Use social media to help OTHER people look good. Bragging about yourself is something anyone can (and most) do. Share with your audience the great news about your clients and prospective clients, and they'll value you for it.
3.) Share everything you know. Why? Information on any topic is ubiquitously available for consumption for FREE. Are you the one teaching your clients and prospective clients or is someone else? Don't think you have anything worthwhile to share? Check out my favorite quote -
Ralph Waldo Emerson famously said, “In my walks, every man I meet is my superior in some way, and in that I learn from him.”
Take the inverse of that quote and it means that everyone can benefit from YOU as well.
