Market Yourself, Your Business or a Project by Looking Ahead
When we talk about how to “Create Profitable Marketing,” we are often misunderstood. We do not mean focusing solely on making money, instead, we are advocates for the lifestyle choice of seeing the word “profit” applying not only to financial gain but also encapsulates having your passion profiting too. To achieve this kind of profiting, it is suggested that you look at your long-term goals. You need to build today with an eye on what you want to be in the future.
Plan Your Strategy
Are you naturally suited for the industry that you want to become well known in? Do find that doing the work of this category comes easily to you? This is important because to truly be successful you need to love what you do. It does not hurt to get a college degree or so, which not only could be useful in the future, but gives you a chance to process and plan your strategy.
The strategy for becoming a known entity is not a secret, yet some who pursue the path of attempting to reach heights in your industry get it all wrong. They are hoping for instant gratification and may work harder not smarter. You can put in all the effort in the world to the point of exhaustion, yet never get close to what you are trying to achieve.
The Building Visibility Formula
The formula for building visibility is the same regardless of the industry you want to be high profile in. Remember, PERCEPTION is REALITY. You need to climb the ladder with each rung being a step higher in terms of the perception others have of you. But it is not what YOU think is what you need to do to go up those steps. Instead, you must hit the marks of what is viewed by others in your field and the public as being someone who is on the fast track upwards. In short, you need the acceptance at every level by those you need to open the doors for you.
Unknown to Mover and Shaker
No one is going to help you get to the next step unless you are perceived by them as NOT NEEDING THEIR HELP. When you do not need them, they will help you. But it is important that you know what each rung is on this ladder as seen by others as the right one. Do not go rogue and make it all up in your head of what you need to do in terms of reaching and gaining entry by every gate keeper along the way. In short you need to achieve status from the point of view of others in your industry so they will open doors on each step of your journey. You gradually work your way up from being an unknown to being a mover and shaker.
The Door Could Still Slam Shut
But watch out. You could get the door slammed shut on you, if you do not do your homework and find out what those at the doors need from you to open them. But here is where it gets sticky. You may have done your homework and have the goods you need, but still have the doors closed on you. This is when it becomes a numbers game for which you must believe in yourself and your product (which can be yourself).
Learn from Each Experience
Each person you present your presentation to (having the right credits of course), is an opportunity to do market research. If they reject you, try to find out their reason why. They may lie to you to not make you an enemy, so you will need to read between the lines. With the preparation process of getting ready to pitch the next gate keeper, be sure to integrate what you learned from the one who just turned you down.
Hard Work Yet No Progress?
That is all it is. Create, rinse, repeat, create, rinse repeat as you go higher and higher with your eye on the prize and integrating elements of the plans of those who have achieved heights before you. Do market research within your industry so you follow the right blueprint rather than a pie in the sky strategy you make up that could cause you to become exhausted without there ever being true progress.
Use What Worked for Those Before You
To fulfill the expectation of each gatekeeper you must pass through as you ascend, you might need to package yourself using media of some kind. Media can mean video, graphic arts and so on. First check how other successful people in your industry have presented themselves at each phase, while simultaneously integrating your accomplishments and being sure to solve the problem of the keeper at the door.
