Nobody knows you exist. Now what?

The article emphasizes the importance of self-promotion in today's digital world, especially for professionals and entrepreneurs. It begins by highlighting the missed opportunities of not promoting oneself online and proceeds to outline strategies for effective self-promotion:

  • Share behind-the-scenes of your work process to make yourself and your work more relatable and interesting.
  • Take a strong stance on controversial topics in your industry to attract attention and build a devoted following.
  • Create content that educates authentically and engages with your audience in a conversational tone.
  • Collaborate with creators outside your niche to expand your reach and gain exposure to new audiences.
  • Avoid constantly selling and focus instead on promoting your name, face, brain, opinions, and value.

The article suggests starting on LinkedIn as a platform for building a personal brand and offers resources like a personal branding course and a comprehensive entrepreneurship program for those looking to monetize their brand. It also encourages readers to take a 30-day challenge of promoting themselves online daily to stop being the "best-kept secret" in their industry.

Here's the deal: sustainable self-promotion is where it's at. It's about finding that sweet spot where you're not bombarding people with shameless plugs every hour, but you're still making enough noise to get noticed. Think quality over quantity.

I'm all for sharing your journey, your wins, and your insights, but let's keep it real. Nobody wants to see your face plastered all over their feed 24/7. It's exhausting, and honestly, it's a turn-off.

Instead, why not focus on creating meaningful content that either adds value or entertains. Show us the process behind your work, share your thoughts on industry trends, and engage in genuine conversations. That's the stuff that sticks.
