Do You Consider Yourself An Expert?

Do you consider yourself an Expert?
Who do you consider an Expert?

These two questions are asked by many of themselves and others. We often have so many questions about topics that have a zillion plus answers - especially when it comes to the internet. This all begins with the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHY and HOW questions.

WHO do you ask?
WHAT should I use?
WHERE should I start?
WHY would they follow?
HOW do I know if it is right?

This all depends on the EXPERT.

If you know more than the next person, that makes you an expert. The person who seeks out the answer with, books from the library, e-books, CD’s, DVD’s, blogs, interviews, articles, online videos, etc…makes himself or herself the expert.

At first I didn’t think I was the expert on something new to me, but immediately changed that thought, when others told me differently. They actually commented on what I said and what I wrote. Does this sound like you?

It’s easier to become an expert in Network Marketing, as long as you follow the system. Most companies have their own system to follow and most companies’ systems have the same basics, with a difference in whether it’s a product or service that they offer. With a product, most will say, “try this sample and let me know what you think.” Most services say to join, become a member and if you are not satisfied you can drop your membership at anytime. Some services may have a special promotion that will help entice new prospects. With sample products, the cost is out of the distributors pocket in hopes to make a sale. As long as that networker knows the basics of the company’s system, that alone makes them an expert.

As an expert, you need to position yourself to be the leader - in your profession or maybe just a leader in the knowledge of what others need to know. The way to position yourself is to create more visuals like public speaking, writing books, etc. An added branding of what makes you an expert include all the testimonials and recommendations you acquire.

If you think you are not a leader, you may be surprised. Brush off what you think may be holding you back and put yourself out there. Taking that first step will open many doors on why we need to know... you. Because You are the Expert!

You are the Art of Information. Position yourself to provide the right communications platform. Be the vessel that can create relationships. Be your own on-going success story. Then share that information. That alone shows that you are THE EXPERT!
