The internet is saturated with self appointed guru’s. To stand out among the crowd you need to have credibility and authority. Neither of these are easy to achieve. Both take time to establish but there are strategies to assist in the process.
Before anything, make sure you have a passion for your field of choice. You have to want to blog, vlog, and promote your field with passion. If it is a chore, it will show in your content.
Another way to build instant credibilty is to go deep in your knowledge of the field. To stand out you need to know more than the next guy, so keep learning.
If you have passion and keep learning in your field it is inevitable that you will create great content. It is your content that will get you noticed.
Once you’ve been noticed it’s time to partner with influencers in your field. Go to them, or if you’re lucky, they will come to you. This can be as simple as commenting on their blogs, getting a guest post on their blog, or being interviewed as an “up and coming” in your field.
- To stand out in a world of self appointed gurus, you need to know your stuff. That means building authority and credibility.
- You won’t go the distance in building authority and credibility if the field you have chosen is a chore. Above anything else make sure you are passionate about your field of endeavor.
- To become an authority you need a breadth and depth of knowledge. To build this keep learning and build relationships with key players in your field or industry.
