Next Step: Create A Vibrant Community Of Like-minded People who share in your collective hopes and dreams for the future.

Make an appointment to discuss how to do this. We would love to share our step by step system with you. Then, use what you will, add what you know, experiment with what you think might work and have fun! And whatever you do, ignore the urge to automate the accumulation of mass numbers of followers, connections and friends – just for the sake of having big numbers and looking important.

Instead, look beyond those “numbers”, the mechanics of “how-to” use the tools, and see the people. Realize that behind your marketing plan and their 140 characters there is a real person that may become your greatest friend, mentor, strategic partner, vendor, employee or customer. And then treat them with utmost respect and care.

Using The Internet To Promote Your Subject Matter Expertise

As I stated in a previous post, the first thing you should expect, and aim for with internet marketing is to use the internet to promote/build your subject matter expertise.

You know and your immediate circle of family, friends and customers may know that you are a subject matter expert. But is that enough to sustain your rock star business?

If not, we can definitely help you with that! By participating in Power Teams, we can get you rock star status in a very short period of time.

How to strengthen your subject matter expertise at IempowerU Online EntrepreneurTo the right is an example of what we do every day. This is a page listing the top people on twitter for the keyword “international business”. They earn their rank by the quality of their content and level of active engagement with their social media communities, specifically twitter.

Becky DeStigter, in 1st position with a score of 100% is my community site – Entrepreneur Community Online’s 1st Follower(watch the video on this page). She has been in this position now for several years years. The highlighted names are past or current members of ECO Power Teams, all of them used the power teams to get started.

Their diligence and consistency in creating/maintaining/improving their online presence is very clear from this list. And don’t think for one minute that their expertise stops at this list. It extends out into a growing presence online. And that presence is translating directly to their bottom line. When you become the “go-to” person in your industry, people go to you and pay you handsomely for that expertise.

How do you get this for yourself, how do you build/strengthen/promote your own subject matter expertise online? As we have been discussing in all of my previous blog posts:

  • you have to develop an overall online strategy
  • part of which will be to develop a social media marketing strategy

Then, if it fits within your strategies, I recommend that you become a member of an ECO Power Team. One purpose of the power team is to show you how to do this as you go. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment so that we can discuss your questions.
