Niche Marketing: How to Become the “Go-To” Expert

If you want to be known as an expert, separating yourself from the crowd is important. There is so much information on the Web and so much to process.

People want to feel comfortable with trusting the information they are viewing is valuable and it should be your job to provide that.

One of the fastest ways to increase your brand awareness and business is to be seen as an expert in your niche.

If you are looking to break into a new niche and looking to generate business quickly positioning yourself as authority is vital.

Three simple ways to stand out from the crowd and position yourself as an expert include:

1) Using Social Media to Create a Presence

If you are looking to quickly build your presence as the “go-to” person it’s important to build your brand online.

Namely social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, etc.

These platforms frequent millions of visitors on a daily basis and it is your job to provide them with the content they are looking for.

You can share content and interact with other experts in your niche which in turn will build your credibility as the go-to person.

This process is time consuming, but can be fun if you are doing the right things such as: answering questions, asking questions, posting articles from your blog, sharing articles, and doing videos.

Content is king and the more content your provide the better you position yourself as an expert.

Take the time to build relationships with people and always do your best to serve.

2) Networking

Get yourself associated with some of the people making a name for themselves in your niche space.

Those that are already established and even those who are up and coming.

When you surround yourself with people who are like-minded and as motivated as you are it keeps you motivated and makes you work that much harder.

Surround yourself with people who are doing things similar to you and build a friendship.

Communicate often and feed of each others strengths, failures, and ideas.

Friendly competition as I’d like to call it.

While these people may be your competitors turn them into allies and learn how to earn, work together, and grow together.

Discover ways to attract new business and reach new prospects.

It won’t be easy, but in the long run it is worth it with the right dedication.

3) Write a Book

I was told one by one of the leading bloggers online that one of the quickest ways to becoming considered and expert online was to write an Ebook.

This by far puts you in a position of authority because people get to actually read something with your name on it and apply what they’ve learned.

You then can get testimonials from the customer, which really boosts you up as a leader.

People love to see testimonials.

It’s a free way to build your reputation without having to explain to others yourself.

Word-of-Mouth is powerful.

Bottom line, getting your expertise and ideas into your market is a sure way to get noticed.

By sharing your knowledge with others people will naturally gravitate towards your for your leadership and knowledge on a particular subject.

People will look to be associated with you in some form.

Becoming the “go-to” expert is going to take some time, but with a little hard work you can position yourself as an authority and begin having people come to you for advice.

Using the three methods above you can position yourself as and expert and in turn use that expertise to teach others how to become experts in their niche space.

Best Wishes!
