Tell your story and attract your listeners

You are strolling at the market and you see a young man standing on a platform. He shouts about creating a better world. “Things have to change. We can not continue this way. We must consume less! Therefor, I have….”

Everyone walks by and nobody seems to listen or looks interested in his story. You also keep on walking. “When nobody stops to listen, it probably is not interesting”, are your thoughts.

A bit further you see a young lady. She is sitting on a bench and more than ten people are sitting close to her and listen. She is telling a story, but you can’t hear it. You move a bit closer.

You can hear what she is talking about, but it still is difficult to understand everything she says. Slowly you move closer, until you are almost uncomfortably close to some other listeners.

3 tips to become visible even if you do not like to write – Build your Hub

There are a number of ‘excuses’ why people think they can’t have an active blog, so they start none. For me a Hub (combination of blog and website) is essential in attracting clients.

The hub is one of the 5 key points in the Best People Attraction Model. Posting regularly to attract new and returning visitors to your Hub is important.

In one of the Stop Selling Breakthrough Session I spoke with a lady and she said “Writing is not my thing. Like for others administration is not their thing. I feel the same about blogging. So, I can not start a blog.”

That is not true of course, you can blog. You can become visible on the web. You can be found by your target audience via the search engines.
There are 3 very obvious ways that you can increase your visibility on the internet.

Best People Attraction Model

Working and experimenting for over 10 years on the best way how to attract clients I have created a model. This model can help you to stop chasing clients and start client attraction for your business.

Attracting Clients Customers Leads Suppliers Vendors Partners Freelancers Virtual Assistants Attracting clients online will also result in a better balance between entrepreneurship and family.

Self employed

For the last 4 years I have focused on the self-employed or independent professionals in my business. Professionals in what they do and they work independently. They run their own business.

I love working with these entrepreneurs. They want to move forward, they are willing to change, want to grow/improve, and make decisions.

Thus the model works best for the self-employed, the independent professional or the solopreneur. You are for example a trainer, coach, speaker, author, mentor, consultant.
