In any Industry, Marketplace or even amongst friends, it’s great to find out that others are talking about you, particularly if it’s all good, but what makes others talk about us?
Make a mistake in front of one of your so called friends then wait and see……Words like a thousand fine silken strands virally reach out in the wind and echoes in the ears of all who are close. This web or net has caught all in its reach and you are the center of attention. You made the mistake, now everyone knows. It didn’t take long. Sadly, due to your error you became the center of a type of networking, people informing people, about you.
Imagine harnessing this power, to have some kind of control or rather influence with what floated out in the winds of the Internet touching the ears of others, this time to promote yourself as the right type of person to be around. One who cares and looks towards the advantages of others, first. Well you can! This is called branding, Branding yourself by sending out fine threads tying people together directing them back to you. This by its very nature is creating a net or group of people, by introducing yourself, listening, answering and assisting your contacts allowing them to get to know you on a personal level helps to establish you as an authority in your chosen field.
This is Network Branding, but I really do not know enough to be any sort of an authority, how can I ever help others??
Understanding How You Can Assist Others
The first thing I suggest is join one or two forums, if you already haven’t. Go straight to the introduction page say high to everyone. It’s fairly much like sending an Email you’re directed to an Email type page with a header and a body box. Write your… Hey this is who I am and where I’m from, I am looking forward to getting to know you…. Keep it warm and friendly, then press enter or go to a button on the page that says post, click it and their you have it. You have taken your first step to branding yourself with a group of like minded people.
Answer those who welcome you so they see you’re a friendly person. Set up your profile; be honest in telling others a little about yourself. Have a look around the site, look for others who write and post questions, if you know the answer provide a no strings attached answer, if you don’t then research the answer in Google, then go back and provide the answer leave your name and user name. Others will read your answers and start thinking you know what your talking about and you do, because if you don’t have an answer to assist you go out and research it. That’s power you possess to say yes I do have some idea on that because I researched and found the answer for myself.
There are many places to network and the principals apply to anyone you ever meet, your referred members to your business and even at places such as a Traffic Exchange. Be open, not pushy, allow people come to you…and they will. Slowly others become to see your worth start trusting you and asking you personally for assistance. You are becoming a Powerful Network marketer because you are doing what it takes to reach out assisting others and letting them get to know you on a personal level.
You have Powered Yourself with Network Branding.
