Today, I will be sharing with you the reason why you’ve not been recognized in that field and why you keep dying in obscurity.
Consider the case of Dan Brown. Dan works harder than everyone at the office, comes early, leaves late. You might think he is actually going to achieve success soon.
The point that he lacks creative showmanship. He simply never attracts the attention of the right people.
I am not saying you should be boasting all over social media or your office. There is a distinct difference between true showmanship and less honest ways of attracting attention to yourself.
Creative showmanship demands ingenuity and a very good sense of timing giving out as an entertaining value.
- Share your little success with the world, you don’t need to lie or go to the extreme, with courtesy and politeness you can achieve the same aim.
- Share testimonials from past clients.
- Share pictures of the events you attend, the books you read, the people you meet that are on the same journey as you.
- Share your story, from how you started and where you are right now, and where you intend to be.
Remember! True showmanship must follow a positive course, don’t minimize the value of others. Start now to use showmanship as a tool to build your success.
Lots of people don’t believe in being specific.
They believe in doing everything, they are multi-talented.
But, ask them what significant impact or achievement they’ve made in any of the talents.
I believe you can pick one or two and focus on it.
You can dedicate your time to those two.
To make money while writing, you need to be specific in your writings.
In just one word have a NICHE.
Writing is a broad field, with so many people in it.
Everyone is a writer. We all write every day.
You can’t be a striker, a defender, and the goalkeeper at the same time.
Today, you tell us about sports, tomorrow you talk about Movies. You talk about health, you talk about being an entrepreneur.
You won’t have a specific audience. They would be confused and not know what you really do.
They won’t know you for a thing.
Let say you write about sport consistently.
Everybody will know you as a Sports Analyst and A Sports Writer. Opportunities will come in that aspect.
Examples of niche
I always write about what will make you get ready for heaven. #PreachMaranatha
I write to help other writers become better writers and make money writing. #Writers_Coach
I also write for my Graphic design business to bring in more sales, delivering great content.
Everything you see me write must be in line with those three niches there.
When you become consistent in one area. People see you as a Boss in that specific area.
Anytime, they can always refer themselves or people to you and you make your money.
When you now write a book under any niche.
You have people that want to buy. Because they know you have been delivering great content on these issues for a while now and you have blessed them.
They know you as prowess in that aspect.
Why won’t they buy from you?
Sit down and carve out a niche for yourself and get started, focus on it daily.
Make the niche yardstick for all your writings.
Make sure it in line with your life’s purpose.
DON’T BE QUIET!
You might be thinking, how does this relate to my business or writing.
I will be showing you in a few minutes, while you scroll down reading to the very end.
I have understood the principle of not keeping quiet as a Writer and Graphic Designer and it has boosted my income.
When I started out, I only get jobs from my family and friends.
I thought I was doing well until I learned I need to make the world hear my voice.
I started telling everyone about my business. On all my social media handles.
I wrote it on my BIO.
I made sure every content I post online shows what I do.
I also make sure after every work I do hard copy or soft copy.
I share it with my status daily.
To keep reminding them of what I do.
Making sure it sticks to their mind.
So that when a need arises in my field. They call on me to solve it and they pay me.
All am saying is; don’t be shy, stand up, and tell us what you do.
Tell the world and show us your work and business.
Use Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads.
And we have a great platform like this where you can share your works.
There many ways to make your business stick to our minds and make us patronize you.
Through this post now, you know what I do, right?
That the power of TALKING; NOT KEEPING QUIET.
DON’T BE QUIET ABOUT IT.
BE A LEADER IN YOUR FIELD.
