Connecting with top influencers for more leads

New customers come through a good brand image for your personal brand, which is built over time through daily interactions. Drive more sales with these tips:

  • Be relatable: Publish content that relates to your industry in a timely manner. Questions and feedback are a good way to track the latest trends. Focus on a few industry leaders and find out what they are publishing, engaging in conversation where you can. The more your brand interacts with these individuals or companies, the stronger your community will become, which generates more interest in your content as well.
  • Stay active on social media: Brands can better spread the word on the social networks that their community is most active in. Find out which platforms are generating the most buzz, and reach beyond your posts and tweets with regular interactions and shares. You can go even farther by participating in live chats, live streaming events, professional groups, offline meetings and hosting your own online events.
  • Promote your influencers: Your feedback and recommendations of others can directly impact your brand’s level of influence, which is a big factor in drawing attention from the right industry players. This in turn can compel them to share your content, and even invite you to become a guest blogger on their website. One mention from a high-level influencer can dramatically impact your sales.
