We have previously discussed the importance of branding yourself when it comes to a successful career in any industry. No matter what you do for a living, you need to understand the principles of attraction based marketing when it comes to career growth. The goal is to build a name for yourself and recognition in your niche by contributing great information and education to your peer group, customers, and coworkers. Eventually, your valuable contribution to your target community will be rewarded with new leads, job opportunities, and business referrals.
What Do You Contribute?
You can gain respect by just giving to others and asking for nothing in return. I find it works really well to get people interested in your business opportunity by initially giving away an information product, or simply helping people with their problems. It really works. I recently attended a networking event for social media marketers and shared some strategies that were working for me. Afterwards,the group organizer shared with me that people were so glad to have met me and wanted to get my contact information, but there was another attendee who turned that same group of people off because he kept pitching his service to people.
It is natural for me to help people and share my passion for learning. You can create an e-book on a subject related to your passion. Once you begin to help people you will attract to you others who will want to buy from you or join you in your team. Start branding yourself today, share your expertise, and build momentum. I wish you the best and hope you attract endless customers or team members.
