From time to time I like to spotlight members who have grown from students into excellent teachers, educators and solutions providers. This exposure can be a big boost to a person's business and confidence. If you'd like to learn how to get introduced to our audience, here are some tips...
I don't play favorites, unless you consider the follow criteria I am looking for as 'playing favorites'
1. Overall, you have shown a positive attitude and a success mindset. I know everyone has their bad days (me too) but your overall message and tone should be constructive. This includes people you interact with throughout the day in your business. It could be our customer support, and other people I associate with and talk to who have interacted with you as well (yep, we are constantly talking about our student's development, challenges and triumphs ALL THE TIME with others on our team). Overall, your 'presence' should be uplifting and positive, showing a commitment to succeeding and overcoming challenges. Only then can I feel comfortable introducing you to others I know, such as doing a Twitter announcement, Digg post, or sending out an email referencing one of your resources, or an event you're having, etc.
2. You have shown consistently that you are in business to provide value to others first and foremost. It may take months of us seeing you here and there--on facebook, on Twitter, at your blog--before we are able to start introducing our audience to you and your services. But no doubt, if we keep running into you on Twitter and you're providing value, or you take on a leadership role in the Super Guides or in the Renegade Breakthrough Mentoring Program, or we see value offered from a video you did, a great blog, etc...we will want to Spotlight you so you can help us move others forward.
When I send a Twitter post out it typically generates 500-1000 clicks on whatever link is there. Whether it's through Digg, Twitter, Facebook or here at a blog (or emailing our lists), being spotlighted will certainly give you an extra boost, and it will be well deserved. Because again, the bigger point to all of this is that others will benefit from the transaction because you have developed yourself and have something 'real' to offer.
There is something even more important about all this... and that is, the opportunities for such exposure (that others give to you as you develop) only increase as you go forward. It snow balls. Soon you have dozens of people referring to your content and to you because you did it. You followed through. You maintained the 'attractive mindset' in your interactions with people. You learned new skills. You did it.
Looking forward to seeing you around and in a future spotlight!
