I happened upon a curious article entitled “How to Roll Up Your Shirt Sleeves” via a luxury company’s social media and it really struck me. As a man who wears shirts, I suppose I am well-within the blog’s target demographic for this post; however, what really interested wasn’t the content, but rather the positioning.
The article details (with photos AND videos!) different ways for men to roll up their shirt sleeves. This is, I suppose, interesting information for a number of readers.
Beyond the content, I think this is a great example of how to position yourself as an expert.
Each of us has a number of interests in which we have a great depth and breadth of knowledge. Be it personal or professional, I’m sure there are several areas in which you could be considered an expert. And therein lies the opportunity.
By taking the next logical step and SHARING your expertise, you can not only impact your audience but also establish yourself as an expert – a status that can reward you handsomly in career pursuits. After all, who would you rather hire/work with/buy from? An expert or the other guy?
