Combine this with your mindset.
Your mindset is like the quality of fuel you put in your engine.
The quality of the fuel, the engine and car will then drive you to amazing places.
From a practical and mindset perspective, here are some useful tips to help increase your client base:
Successful presentation of yourself and your business is the true way to self-promotion.
Presentation and publicity can be either off-line and through personal contact with people at networking events, presentations, meetings, conferences, 1-2-1s.
And through online methods such as the allure and ease of use of your website, promotional videos, podcasts, social media platforms etc.
If you don’t feel comfortable with self-promotion and shy away from it, your business will suffer.
A large number of small business owners feel nervous at the thought of delivering a business presentation to a network, or filming an online video because the idea of self-promotion through presenting to an audience can be nerve-wracking.
Fear of rejection seems to top people’s fears.
A worry of what others may think.
A worry of how you come across.
You get the idea.
However, publicity through presentation be it in person, blogging, videos, podcasts etc are powerful ways to reach business audiences and are great publicity and sales tools.
So think about it.
If presenting is an issue for you, think about why it’s an issue for you?
Ask yourself, what’s the best thing that can happen?
Consider that many people’s greatest fear around presenting is ultimately a fear of rejection.
A ‘what if …?’ scenario (what if I forget what I’m going to say, what if my mind goes blank etc.)
What will people be thinking?! Shock horror!
Overcoming those nerves will make a big difference to you.
Write down any unhelpful thoughts you have around presenting, then rip them up and put them in the bin.
Get out a big piece of paper and write down what you’re going to do from now on!
