Being an expert isn’t enough. You have to prove it! You have to showcase your knowledge and skills to your target market if you want to be a leader in your industry.
Be in the Know
Knowing what’s going on before everyone else does is important to helping you establish yourself as an expert. If you know what’s going to happen first then you can tell about it first and you become the go to source for information thus establishing your expertise.
Be Aware of Trends
Are you fully aware of industry trends? If not, you should be. Stay on top of your industries trends, and report on them. Try to anticipate future trends based on past trends and then talk about them. If you get this one right you will seriously add another notch in your expert belt.
Educate, Educate, Educate
Teach your community, your target market, your clients, colleagues, etc. Teach them what you know. Whatever your specific skillset let it shine through for all the world to see. If they can gain relevant and useful knowledge and skills from you – you will quickly move another step up the expert ladder.
There are different ways you can go about showcasing your knowledge. You can write a blog, a newsletter, ezine, record podcasts or videos, create an eBook to give as a freebie or a special report or white paper, etc.
