Be honest!

This episode was a personal, and professional, chastising for me but I’ll let you in on the conversation. I received an email from PodBean about live-streaming and it peaking my interest. Since The #SpeakEasy Podcast started as a livestream on Facebook this would be perfect.

Then it happened…I went to the site and noticed that I had not claimed my podcast. Omg!! I signed up for the site years ago but I was not using everything it had to offer. (How many can relate on one level or another?) Once I claimed my show I saw an opportunity to market through PodBean.

Oh, if you connect with us on PodBean we’ll follow you back. Let’s grow together!

So how do we show up and dominate the room?

– Lead with service

Don’t be one of “those entrepreneurs” that show up with a product to sell but no conversation. When you lead with a mindset of service it takes the expectation off of the other person and puts it squarely on you. So now you become “the plug” for someone in the room and that word of mouth spreads. (Often times it will spread quicker than we could imagine)

– Have conversations within the community

Here is one that I had to work on for years. As an introvert, I often found myself wanting to stay to myself. What shifted for me was finding great ways to have a conversation. I give some tips on how I start conversations as an introvert in my book “Plug In: 25 Power Networking Tips for Introverts, Startups and the Success Obsessed. (Purchase a copy of the ebook here: bit.ly/pluginmyvoice) Something as simple as what you put on your nametag or on your zoom nametag can make a huge difference.

– Ask questions

Polls and questions are like vitamins for business. Most don’t understand the power they have until they start using them. You will see an influx of answers that will lead to more products and services that you can offer and potential customers who want it. Be careful though. Too much of many things can become hazardous. Develop a strategy for how you will dissect the information that you attain from the polls and questions so you do not become overwhelmed.

– Follow up and then follow up again

You know what they…the fortune is in the follow up. I’m not only referring to you following up when it comes to customers either. Follow Ups should occur with hosts of events, speakers, and the people you have networked with. This keeps you fresh in their minds and vice versa. You never know when you may be able to refer one of them for an opportunity

– Be consistent in your actions, service and engagement

When we create a strategy for how we show up online and offline it sets the standard. Social media has shrunk the seven degrees of separation to three within the span of a few years. That means that you can connect with almost anyone when you execute at the highest level.
