Example 1: Affiliate marketer who has a Blog
If you are selling affiliate products, the best way to stand out from the crowd that is scamming people is to be professional. To do that you create a blog (It’s almost free), Facebook page, Instagram page and a twitter account. This way people will trust you unlike when you use a personal profile and posting to every group on Facebook.
Example 2: A business owner with a Website
Say you sell clothes, books or other products. If you have a blog and social media accounts, people will start noticing you and soon enough they will start buying from you. Very few nowadays buy from groups. They buy from pages and websites and people they can trust.
Example 3: A Career job Seeker
Say you are a qualified receptionist, salesperson, cook, restaurant attendant or driver. If you set up a blog and social pages and start sharing what you know in that field, people will start to notice you. This is a better way to seek employment. When people see you are posting about the things you know, they won’t even need you to provide a CV to hire you. Many people lack jobs because instead of being creative, they spend all the time posting on Facebook pages and groups asking for any jobs.
Example 4: A Professional with a personal blog
If you are a self-employed professional consultant or an employee of a company, a personal website or blog will help you dominate and stand out from the rest. By sharing your knowledge about what you do, you will eventually become an authority in your field of expertise. This increases your worth in your organization or in your profession.
Just be a bit creative. Advertise your business and skills the right way.
