I want to spend a few minutes this week and blog on boosting your profile and your credibility. This is a constant process, I kid you not. When I returned to the business world after being retired for 3 years, people said “Christine who?” and there I was… having to build a platform (UGH!) all over again. This week, I’ll be covering the 3 fastest ways I’ve found to build one’s credibility as an expert. Here’s Step 1.
Step #1 Get a column: Sounds hard, but isn’t. Write 8+ articles that are prescriptive (5 tips to X, 7 things to avoid when doing Y)—all focused on your area of expertise. Distribute these 300-500 word articles via article submission engines like www.ezinearticles.com and others. Google to find tons of these sites. Find web sites (see www.alexa.com) and blogs (see www.technorati.com ) in your area of expertise. Offer your columns as a free resource for these sites and blogs to offer to their visitors. Be sure to end your article with a brief bio leading the reader to your web site where they’ll get a free content-rich gift (and they will opt in to your mailing list to get it).
Stay tuned for more on this topic later in the week.
To your 7 Figure Business in 2010.
