How To Convince People Of The Fact That You Are The Expert?
Fellow Freelancers, or should I say Experts..
Today, I'll bring you something different. Something you'll need to think about.
The subject is the title. The answers will vary. Some people will say one thing and others will claim another thing to be better. That's just the average way of life.
What we will talk about, is how you position yourself to be an expert.
I will give you one example, of how I would do things.
When I was a salesperson for SVD (A newspaper in Sweden), I simply told my previous boss, during the interview, that I was a superb salesperson, even though I had basically no prior experience at all. - Was that wrong?
At first glance of such an answer, I would say yes. It was wrong.
However, I added more to it.
I told him that I had experience from being a freelancer for instance. That I had been working with people previously, but in other ways, but I still had social skills. I gave him the full story so to speak, and by doing that, I convinced him of the fact that I was "the guy" he needed. - And I started to work.
So yeah, perhaps not the best story or example, but decent enough to make my point. At least I think so.
With that being said, you can be the expert, even if seems like you're not.
How do you position yourself to be an expert?
