Often when people are new to online business, they aren’t sure if they truly have anything to offer because they don’t think of themselves as an expert.
Here are some tips on how to show your expertise when first starting your online business.
When you first start out wanting to work from home and start your own business, it can be frightening and even seem impossible.
It’s the old conundrum about how you can get experience without having experience.
But, when you start an online business, you can make your own experience and prove your expertise with just a little work.
Don’t sell yourself short because each person adds their own unique perspective in whatever niche they are in.
The first thing you can do is start a blog on your own website.
This is a great way to share your thoughts and opinions on whatever niche you are representing.
You can speak directly to your audience and discuss many issues that they may be having.
Blogging is a great way to get traffic, but it’s also a great way to demonstrate expertise.
If you are creating an online business about a niche that you are already passionate about, it will be easy to share everything you know.
Even if you are still learning about your niche, you can become the go-to person for those people that rely on what your research reveals.
Another great way to show your expertise is to write a book.
You can do this very easily by self-publishing via Amazon and other places.
You can offer this book in a digital eBook format and there is even an option to offer your eBook in a print copy.
Write the book to your target audience and answer any questions they may have.
Address one problem and solve it and then you’ll get more respect that you do know what you’re talking about.
You can even put a link in your eBook that sends them back to your website.
Another great idea is to make checklists to help your target audience.
If you know the types of things that your audience has questions or concerns about, then you can create helpful checklists, cheat sheets, or tip sheets that are available for viewing and/or downloading on your website or blog.
This offers value and demonstrates your knowledge in your niche.
Use social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. to share your knowledge.
You can join various groups in your niche and answer people’s questions or engage in conversation about your niche.
Do not be spammy and just keep things conversational.
Then if people want to know more, they can view your profile information, which should include a link to your website.
Forums and message boards are also great places to answer other people’s questions in a way that highlights your expertise.
Another way to share your expertise is to write articles for other blogs, websites, newspapers, or magazines.
Most newspapers and magazines now offer a digital version and you could send a request to submit an article.
These places often want more content and will take well-written, expertly delivered articles.
Some of these places will even pay you for the content.
Write originally for each and rely on your bio to send traffic back to your website.
Another excellent way to share your expertise is to start your own YouTube channel and create videos on various topics within your niche.
Many people have become well-known because of YouTube, and you can too.
Use YouTube and other video sites such as TikTok as a way to demonstrate your expertise on the topics of interest to your audience.
Always link back to your website in the description sections of your videos because videos can be another source of traffic to your website.
Other methods you can use to share your expertise within your niche are webinars and podcasts.
Technology enables you to do a lot to spread the word about your knowledge and expertise.
You can do podcasts or videos to offer tips and training about things that your audience needs help with or solutions to or even just simply want someone else’s take on the matter.
These ways to show your expertise when first starting out don’t require you to have a huge audience or following yet.
This will come with time because doing them will help you gain a following, improve search engine optimization (SEO) and help you build the online business of your dreams.
Step out with confidence and you will be surprised by how much you really do know and how much people value your contribution.
