So, maybe you’ve been putting a lot of work in to blogging, social media, speaking engagements and other ways to get recognized as a thought-leader in your field. That’s time you can’t bill your clients for, and you can’t get that time back. And you may be wondering, is there actually money at the end of all of this effort?
You want your articles, blog posts, speeches and other content to help you gain clients, right? So, would it be better for you to create content that focuses on (1) what you want to say to the universe, or (2) meeting the information needs of your ideal clients, and showing how you can help them?
In case you were wondering, the correct answer is (2). That is the whole focus of this blog, Your Expertise Edge – helping you show potential clients that you can help them achieve their goals, by providing really useful information and making it available to them.
If you’re like most business professionals, you’d rather put your time into actually doing the work you love, rather than doing what it takes to get that work. So, wouldn’t you want to pick work-getting methods that are the best able to attract the clients you most want to serve?
Do you want your articles, blog posts, videos, speeches and other content to be sought out by your ideal clients? And when they’ve found it, do you want them to see you as someone who has workable ideas to offer them?
One way to do that is to focus your content on “how-to” themes.
In this post, you’ll learn what a how-to is, the role it plays in your thought leadership program, how to pick themes for your content, what topics to avoid, and how to structure your content effectively. So yes, this is a how-to about how-to’s.
