If you own a small business or have the ambition to be an Entrepreneur one day, you need to position yourself in a manner that will affect your business positively. This is because as the sole owner of your business, you are responsible for the success or failure of the business and you bear the consequences alone.
Recently, I got in contact with this info graphic designed by a friend Enstine Muki, one of the best and most helpful blogger in the internet today and decided to share it with you and I know it will help you in the quest of your aspirations.
This is what this info graphic is all about:
You Need a Platform
There are different platforms you can use to express yourself and enhance your personality but the most common is to set up a blog where you can express yourself and make your intentions known to the world.
Be specific in the roles you play or what you offer to the people, be an expert in what you want to present to your readers. Do not be ‘jack of all trades and master of none’. This is because you need to convince your audience that you are capable and trustworthy so they can have confidence in your products or services.
Be Positively Active On the Social Media
The social media especially the Face Book and Twitter are one of the largest communities where people interact and share information as well as discuss relevant issues.
Unfortunately, most people do not always take advantage of the real purpose of social media but use it to do things that place their credibility in doubt.
Smart individuals utilize these media platforms to promote their brands and market their goods and services to huge community of the users.
The gains of being positive in the Social Media are:
1. You will easily create your brand awareness to a very large community.
2. It will facilitate face to face interaction with your intended customers
3. It is fast and cheap
4. It also has a long term benefit as your contacts stays for a very long period.
For a start, offer free but quality information to your audience. Most of those searching the internet are looking for solution to their problems; make it easy for them by offering those links to get the desired help.
Money should not be your priority at this period but how to build good personal relationship with your readers having it at the back of your mind that you are building up your future customers. You will notice that when they are convinced of your capability of meeting their demands, they will surely ask for more.
Do not be afraid to approach new clients, take up new positions or seek new opportunities. Whatever you need to help you in your business take action and don’t wait for manner to come from heaven.
I know you have learnt one or two things from this short write up. Please do not forget to share with others especially those seeking for new opportunities.
