5 Ways to Up-level Your Online Business Credibility
If you want to earn top dollar for your coaching programs, it’s clear you’ll first have to become the go-to expert in your niche. You’re likely already working toward that goal, and probably have been for some time, but if you’re not quite there yet, here’s how to jumpstart your credibility.
5 CREDIBILITY BOOSTERS
This is by far the most important thing you can do to grow your audience and your credibility.
Blog posts, podcasts, ebooks, and self-paced training programs—whether free or paid—are the building blocks of your empire, and if you want to earn top dollar, you first have to put in the work to create a solid foundation.
This is where a lot of people struggle.
Maybe you hate the sound of your voice or you hate how you look on video.
GET OVER IT!
Your potential clients need to get to know you better before they shell out $5,000 or $10,000 for that group-coaching program you’re putting together.
Video is the easiest way for them to do that. So get a makeover, hire a video coach, and start sharing what you know on YouTube and other video channels.
Write a Book.
The big daddy of content, a real, physical book can skyrocket your credibility and pave the way for the rest of your coaching career.
We are not talking about writing an encyclopedia.
So push that thought out of your head.
There are many business out there that will help you with getting your book published.
Also having a book, open so many doors to opportunities you have dreamed about.
Interviewed on radio, t.v., international speaking engagements, the list can go on and on.
Nothing says “I’m an expert” quite like getting to take to the stage and speak in front of a group.
Chances are your expert status has already attracted the attention of event organizers and you’ve been asked to speak.
If you have, and have turned down the opportunity, now is the time to boost up your confidence and make the leap.
If you haven’t, then go out and actively seek opportunities that are a good fit.
Don’t be afraid to start small—at your local Chamber of Commerce or a recurring MeetUp group—but keep an eye on the big stage, too, and be open for the chance to wow a crowd with your expertise.
Host a Live Event.
Want to really blow your audience away with your coaching and business skills?
Plan and host a live event.
It doesn’t have to be huge—in fact a small, intimate venue is often the best choice—but do start making plans.
Live event hosts are often viewed as the real movers and shakers in their industries (because they are).5 CREDIBILITY BOOSTERS: Content Creation, Video and Write A Book. Read the blog to find out the other 2 Credibility Boosters
Remember, too, no matter which credibility-boosting method you’re using, it will only work if people know about it.
So don’t just start a podcast, market it.
Don’t step onto a stage of any size without shouting about it to the rooftops, and never ever write a book without a big launch.
