When participating in forums....you need to "BRAND" yourself.
What do I mean by branding yourself? You need to let other forum
members know what kind of person you are, what are your specialties,
what kind of benefits they can get from you and what kind of
knowledge you are willing to share.
Branding yourself will get you some followers, who will look at what
you have to say, what kind of jokes they will enjoy reading, what kind of
motivational thoughts you are willing to share and what programs are
working for you and how they too can benefit from them.
You need to be amusing, knowledgeable, and for the most part, willing
to share what will benefit other members.
This subject is important - and you really need to get started "branding"
yourself. Get some followers and even get referrals for your businesses.
Everybody knows "branding" look at NIKE, Pepsi-Cola, Coca-Cola
......McdDonald, Jack-N-the Box you see their billboards and TV commercials
every where and they are all getting customers.
