As of today, we are nine months in 2018. What have you been spending much of your time doing this year? If you are an entrepreneur, brand ambassador, business owner, YouTuber, or just discovering your yearning desire to start your own business this blog post is for you! I am a full-time blogger, YouTuber, freelance writer, and stay at home mother who has a growing blog who found herself one day wondering how can she grow her audience on a wider scale?

I had to understand more about the audience that I wanted to attract and captivate. It’s one thing to have people wanting what you have to offer, and it is another thing to have people who keep coming back for more of what you have to offer. I had to get better and more conscious about self-promotion! You must have the confidence to promote yourself even when it may feel like nobody is watching or even cares. Here are 7 amazing ways to learn self-promotion and suck it up!

Practice and perfect your elevator pitch.

This had to be my number one way to help you get into an even better at self-promotion. Practicing your pitch can be as simple as writing down how you want to go about promoting not only your company but yourself. Get into a word or google document and start typing out how you want to pitch your brand and image to the world.

Utilize every social media platform.

You may not be into taking photos or have a powerful voice to create bold and interesting posts. Take time out to learn more about the best social media platforms that can help you take your business and brand to the next level. Stop making excuses as to why you can’t reach your potential audience, customers, or clients.

Find clarity with a personal branding statement.

Creating a personal branding statement will help you develop a deeper understanding as to why you are doing what you do and why you have a passion to do it. If you do not have one now, then my friend it is time to create a personal branding statement. Just do not over think it and let it come naturally.

Place yourself in your customer/audience position.

You should already know what it is like to shop somewhere and have outstanding or poor customer service. Place yourself in your audience, client, or customer’s position and be unbiased towards your own promotion or what you are doing. Ask yourself if I was “my audience” would I support or buy from me?”

Understand and value your audience.

I remind entrepreneurs and brand ambassadors every time they reach out to me for advice that they must understand and value their audience. I want to encourage you to do the same and to always follow through with knowing how much of a value they add to your brand, company, or industry.

Seek out speaking opportunities.

You have heard the slogan, “A closed mouth doesn’t get fed.” I hope you have because every opportunity that you may decide to seek out won’t put money in your pocket. However, many non-paid opportunities could bring you more potential customers, subscribers (on YouTube) and even teach you more about yourself and brand. It’s up to you on how you choose to pitch brands whether they are locally or nationally. Do your research and do not sell yourself short.

Create high-resolution photos and videos to promote daily.

Promoting your brand or company takes effort. Place the effort into also creating high-resolution photos and or videos to reach your desired audience. If you feel like your photos or videos are not up to “par” then hire a professional photographer in your area if you can. If not, there are tons of videos online and online classes that can help you better your photography and video skills.
