Greetings to all!
I pray this blog post finds you well. You know, as writerpreneurs, one of the most profound ways to get your works in front of others is to create an effective network strategy. And for today's article, I want to provide you with some tools that you can use to overcome any barriers that may stand in the way of your success. But before I begin, let me ask you these questions. (You can leave your responses in the comment section!) How do you feel about networking, and what does that term mean to you? Do you fear networking? If so, why? And if not, have you thought about ways that you can enhance this ability to help expand your brand's reach?
One of the most effective ways to develop your writerpreneurship is to understand the importance of networking and building lasting, professional relationships. While the Internet has provided writers multiple opportunities to become successful, it’s vital that you understand how to maneuver through this world effectively. Therefore, understand that networking does not mean spamming your content and services on others. Rather, networking means connecting with others who share a common idea or industry with you. It means stepping out of your comfort zone to meet someone who may have never heard your name. It means being confident enough to know that you have something to offer the larger community. (NOTE: Consider joining the Empowered Writerpreneur Network where we put this into practice in a greater degree. You can join for free!)
The Internet has shifted. No longer can a business simply expect people to purchase a product or service because they simple see an ad. People are now more conscious and cautious about where they place their money; and as such, an online business person must attract potential clients/customers in a different manner.
3 important factors to consider as you begin to redefine your networking strategy
I realize that some of you may be introverted, and find that connecting with other people is both trying and anxious. But it’s crucial to your success. This is why I highly suggest that you join the EW Network. While many of you may be accustomed to networking on other social media platforms like Facebook, it can be challenging to do this effectively because of how these platforms currently operate. No matter how many groups you join as an author, a very, very small percentage of people will actually see your posts. With my latest project and network, this is not the case. It is a high-engaging, impactful community of authors from across the world who have the same mission: to develop into successful writerpreneurs that know how to generate wealth using their craft, which will help them fulfill their God-given assignment. So, join us!
You can also develop your networking skills within your own sphere of influence. Start re-connecting with people that already know you, and practice sharing your writings with them. Ask for feedback and suggestions on improvement. Remember that you’re not just a writer anymore; you’re an expert at something and you’ve turned that expertise into a profitable writing business. The more you continue to do this, the more comfortable you will be when it comes time to network with others outside your sphere.
Leave a comment below, and tell me how you network with others.
And as always, let's grow together!
