How to Become an Online Center of Influence






Being the center of influence means you are the person people are attracted to and want to connect with. Becoming an online center of influence means positioning yourself to attract others to you. You will be known as the go to person. Being the center of influence is a distinction one must develop by possessing the following qualities.

· The ability to overcome your fear of rejection. Fear of rejection is the number one reason people don’t make connections. They are afraid of being told no or they feel they will make a fool of themselves. Stop expecting people to say no and start expecting nothing. You have to stop selling and start giving people value.

· Always have business cards. You never know when you will need a business card. Your business cards are like the keys to your car. You can’t go anywhere without them. They are your keys to success.

· Be willing to assume leadership positions. People that are center of influence are always in a leadership position. Assuming leadership positions, positions you as a leader.

· The ability to connect people to the right people. When people are looking to connect with someone they may not now or be able to connect to the turn to the go to person. This is a person that is known for making connections.

· Trustworthiness. Your peers and prospects know that they can depend on you. You are a person of your word. This is very important to people you do business with. People do business with people they know like and trust.

· Good communication skills. Being able to communicate with others is important. People want to know that you can convey you message across clearly. If people can’t understand what you are saying how can they trust you?

· Provide Value. What do you bring to the table? Knowing your value and what it is that you bring to the table is a great asset. Your prospects want to know the bottom line, and that is what’s in it for them.

Being the center of influence is the key to your ongoing success in business. Becoming an online center of influence isn’t something that is built intentionally and systematically. Rather it is built over a time of hard work and building those long-term, mutually-beneficial relationships.
