As a business, visibility is super important – not only because it feels good to have consumers interested in our content, but because it drives traffic and increases chances of sales.
It is so easy to get lost inside our own head within our business, so to be successful we must remember to get our content out into the world.
#1: Share Your Story
Remember to put a face to your name; consumers love relatable and personal content! Share with your audience what you do and remind them of why you do it. It often inspires and sparks interesting conversation.
#2: Build an Email List
Email newsletters are a great way to personally update your customers on everything you’ve been up to, alongside sharing special offers and events. They don’t have to be every day or even week, as long as you make them consistent! Using a lead magnet like a downloadable guide or a Quiz to grow your email list is a good idea.
#3 Start Networking
Running a business is, at its core, all about making connections. This year has been all about online connections. LinkedIn is one of the easiest ways to reach out to ideal clients as you can actively grow your network by asking for connections. There are also a huge amount of online networking events and Facebook groups. Whether you start an online networking event or simply join one, it’s the best place to increase your visibility on a personal level.
#4 Explore New Platforms
It’s no surprise that joining new platforms widens your audience which will boost your visibility. Try TikTok or use Reels on Instagram to show the face behind your business; share your message out loud through a podcast, or simply write a blog post on Medium where there are millions of readers.
#5 Use Video
It doesn’t come naturally to some of us but using video will guarantee audience growth. It is highly effective – you’re increasing your visibility instantly in front of hundreds if not thousands of people at once!
#6 Pitch to the Press
A great way to elevate yourself as an expert is to get featured in the press. Make sure you are press ready and find out more about your local media, and use newspapers, radio and other online platforms to get yourself noticed.
