In this challenge you'll learn:
Determine Your Unique Offer
In part 1, you will determine how you want to be perceived. As an expert who helps everyone under the sun and offers generic, one-size-fits-all solutions? Or as a specialist who has experience in a certain field with customized advice and proven results?
Help Your Potential Clients Find You Online
In part 2, we will discuss how your customers or clients will seek YOU out for your personality. They will learn to know, LOVE, and trust you, but you need to learn how to speak to them authentically so they will turn toward you instead of a competitor.
Build Your Influential Personal Brand
In part 3, we will discuss why it's just as important to build your personal brand as it is to build your company brand. Consumers trust people more than they trust companies. This personal relationship between the consumer and the business is now more interconnected than ever.
Tips for Getting New Customers or Clients
In the final part 4, we will share tips for getting new customers or clients. It all starts with making yourself visible and getting your voice heard.
Influence is a powerful tool in business and in life. When people perceive you as having expertise in a given field, you will gain vital credibility.
Your ideas and the content you create are quickly shared and taken to heart. Most importantly, people respect your experience and trust your knowledge. When influential people speak, their target audience hangs onto every word. The audience recognizes that there is significant value in what the influencer has to share, and that there are positive rewards for following his or her advice. That is the power of influence: to affect behaviour because of the reputation you have earned as a reliable leader and problem-solving specialist in a particular field, someone who always has his or her followers’ best interests at heart.
