How to become a recognized expert in your field
The most important thing that an expert should do is, of course, understand his field. This requires more than one year in school and in practice to comprehend the complex science associated with the chosen field. It does not matter what this area is concerned with - the development of sites or mechanisms, the construction of a new building or the writing of articles and books. Is it possible to call a person who is thoroughly versed in his field of activity an expert? Of course, you can. Probably, a small group of people who know about his experience will contact him for advice or advice. But a recognized expert does not only do this.
A recognized expert is a public person. His name is widely heard, many people would like to learn from such a master, firms are willing to pay a lot of money to work with their project. Moreover, the experience and skills of such a person can be no more than a quiet workaholic expert from a distant and unknown laboratory. Not the amount of experience and knowledge determines the success of an expert, but his ability to promote his personality.
Public experts are often professors in universities, especially in the West. They are people who perfectly know the theoretical and practical component of the subject, pass on knowledge, have an idea of the needs of companies in the field of specialists and developments, at the same time actively publish their works in scientific journals, communicate and declare themselves at scientific forums, conferences, competitions. Therefore, it is not surprising that many serious structures turn to university professors to solve an expert task. If we take as a basis the methods of such experts, we can achieve good results in public recognition.
As often as possible, declare yourself as an expert. If you are developing sites, create your own website as an advertisement of your skills, fill it with a description of your own services, examples of works and competently promote it. This will create advertising for you, allow you to declare yourself and find your customers. By the way, own resource will be useful to each expert, not only to someone who can create it himself. If you do copywriting writing, web design and other activities, on your resource you can give advice to colleagues, teach new working techniques, discuss the main problems of your field.
Share your knowledge. The main distinguishing feature of the expert is that he knows a lot and shares it with others. This approach increases your credibility in the eyes of partners and customers, it becomes quite clear that you understand the topic and do it better than many. Do not necessarily write a dozen paid courses, enough and what you tell on the pages of the site. The main thing is that it is useful for readers.
Later, of all the collected articles and tips, you can create a book and publish it in electronic or printed versions. Distribute this book through bookstores or a subscriber base. With the help of a subscription base, you can send hundreds of thousands of people news from your site, talk about events that occur in your activities or help them keep track of your project.
Actively participate in all conferences, discussions, open meetings, round tables. Apply to participate in them as a speaker, an expert. Share your knowledge and position with people, including criticizing some idea or opinion, not only on the Internet, but also face to face. Communicate with people, as much as possible manifest themselves in different areas of your area, so that they talk about you. This will make you not only a first-class specialist, but also a well-known expert, increasing the cost of your services many times over.
