Building your credibility can be highly advantageous as you are getting started online. You must make an active approach to attaining expert status in your niche and it will pay off handsomely. You will be invited to speak online and at live events, many people will want to interview you, and you will also have your pick of JV (joint venture) partners. It is definitely worth your time and effort to pursue this business strategy.
You must manage your online presence in order to take full advantage of what is possible. Being active and consistent is the first step. Decide what your message is and make sure you are comfortable with it as you begin this process of getting your name out to the world in a big way.
It all begins with your WordPress blog.
Make sure you have created a page about yourself, as well a few solid posts on your topic. A picture of you in the header, professionally done, is a must here. Include a way for visitors to opt in to receive a free report or audio recording so that you can begin growing your list.
Social media is another way to jump start your online presence and credibility quickly. Share your information and ideas freely as you connect with a variety of people. Be the ‘go to’ person on your topic and let your personality shine through.
If someone needs a guest for their teleseminar or Internet radio show, be anxious to jump in and help out. I was called to do this early on in my online career and made many friends this way. Even if it’s last minute, Google the host’s name to find out as much as you can about them. This is part of doing your homework and will pay off handsomely over time.
Now it’s time to start writing. I write for at least one hour on a daily basis, and this has been the best way for me to build my credibility and brand myself on the Internet. If you are willing to write articles and blog posts regularly, your business will grow exponentially.
Repurpose everything that you write. This means that you will take your articles and blog posts and turn them into short reports, eBooks, e-courses, books for the Kindle and Nook, slide presentations, workshops, live online courses, checklists, and study guides. Soon you will be on your way to being perceived as one of the key experts in your niche.
Remember that the reason to start an Internet business is to give you the time and financial freedom to live the life you choose.
