3 Simple Ways to Become an Expert

Are you skilled at something particular but not anyone is conscious of it? Do you want to become an expert? It is not as unrealistic as many people expect. Below are three free and easy ways to put yourself in an expert position:


Volunteer to speak at various business groups. It has been said that one of the greatest fears that people have is the fear of giving a speech in public. Until now! By speaking to various business groups, you increase exposure not only for yourself but also for your business. Likewise, you can gain free publicity by being included in the business group’s e-newsletter, website, or press release to the media. Did I mention this is free? Need to polish your speaking skills? Find and join a Toastmasters organization in your area. This is a great way to stretch a dollar to save!


Volunteer to be a guest on internet radio talk shows. Don’t feel comfortable speaking to groups in public? No problem! Why not volunteer to be a guest on an internet radio talk show? Not only can listeners listen to the show live but those who missed the show can download and listen to it on mobile devices such as iPods, iPhones, netbooks, and more. How do you get started? Do your research by listening to shows that are a good fit for your area of expertise and contact the show’s host about being a guest. The only thing that s/he can say is no and you’re no worse off than before you started. Start searching today for shows on that you could be a guest.


Become an expert on LinkedIn Answers. You are probably already using LinkedIn so why not use it to position yourself as an expert. By answering questions on LinkedIn Answers, not only can you share your expertise with others but also become an expert at the same time.


There are many other ways to become an expert but these are just a few to get you started. Just remember that it is not as hard as we may think!
