Advisers keep saying that they struggle to get noticed by their ideal prospects. Advisers also keep saying that they can’t see the point of social media.
Uhhhmmm….maybe the thing they can’t see the point of is the very thing that will fix the other thing?
Let’s say you want to target some business owners, or the CEO’s of certain types of business as an example. There is a pretty good chance these days that those people are using social media in some manner to promote themselves or their businesses. So they are out there in social media land in some capacity. Almost certainly they are on LinkedIn. They probably have a Twitter account. Maybe a blog as well. Quite possibly a YouTube channel….You get the point: there is an example group of great prospects who are using social media in some capacity to promote their own venture or reputation.
And advisers keep wondering how to get the attention of these ideal prospects…..

Simple actions can, and do, lead to them noticing you and then engaging with you, and ultimately being willing to take that engagement offline and into the real world. But it starts with simple actions, such as:
These are all simple and painless things to do, but they are all easy actions that will bring you to the attention (in a positive way) of the person you want to get in front of. Do all of them and you are definitely getting noticed and building goodwill.
