All right. So, let me give you the steps to take to become a thought leader. The first thing I recommend is that you maintain an active business blog. So, you’re doing your own blogging on your website, you’re adding value, you’re adding content. In addition, you start to look at other people’s blogs and offer to contribute guest posts to their blogs so that their audience can also see you as a thought leader. I also recommend that you’re constantly publishing your content, whether it’s articles, whether it’s social media posts, whether it’s a newsletter, whether it’s a newsletter on LinkedIn. Launch your own podcast just like this.

Speak at other people’s podcasts, just offer to speak for their podcast and be interviewed. Offer to speak at conferences, events. Hold your own conferences and events. Do lives in your Facebook group, offer to do interviews in other people’s Facebook groups. Definitely answer questions on social media, look to sites like Quora. I definitely would recommend that you look at social media posts regularly, especially in groups that you might be in where you can contribute value and answer people’s questions without being pitchy or salesy. Highlight your expertise, make sure that’s on all of your bios on social media. You can check mine on Facebook, and LinkedIn, and Instagram and see how that works. And then, go ahead and give people value and education.

I always say keep your ear to the ground, keep your eyes open. People are looking for help, and all you need to do is serve, and create, and share value and education. And certainly, listen and look for feedback. I hope these tips help you. Schedule a quick chat, let’s see if we can help you further. That’s what we’re all about here at Heartrepreneur Agency.
