The most powerful force in business is word of mouth. And who doesn't want people "flocking" around them? If people know, like, trust and have a good experience with you (or hear about it from someone else) they promote you and do business with you.
How do you get people to flock around you? Big companies do it with things like logos and huge dollar marketing efforts. But you don't need a multi-million dollar marketing budget to draw a crowd. What you do need is some effective communicate skills and a creative, thoughtful approach to deliver your message.
If you deliver an interesting message with authentic and genuine motives you are going to have people flock to you. So what comes to mind when people hear your name? Or see you? What do they remember about you after a conversation or presentation? Every avenue you use to communicate, whether it's face to face conversations, emails, presentations or phone calls, all send messages about you.
When you communicate, do you have something significant to share? Are you easy to understand? Do people pay attention when you speak? The way you deal and communicate with people builds your reputation. In turn, your reputation should stand for something of value and serve to… Build trust.
Motivate people to speak positively about you to others and promote you. Create business opportunities. If you want to start getting more people to flock around you, start speaking up more. Public speaking at Toastmasters or Rotary Clubs, or Chambers of Commerce is a great way to do this offline. Writing articles or blog posts, and shooting videos giving relevant information are ways to speak up online. So, start sending strong, positive and attractive signals that cut through all the chatter out there today and you will have people flocking around you.
