Fake it ’til you make it used to be the way to get buy-in from new clients. The followers will still come, but now we know the follower number is only so significant. The real question is: What those conversions do?! Now it’s all about building your tribe. Your tribe will buy what you offer, leave 5-star reviews and recommend you to their network. Here are five ways to authentically present yourself while journeying to the top without creating a faux-lifestyle.
1. Be Honest
2. Don’t Wallow
3. Level Up
4. Photos Matter
- The coin count may be small, but headshots are an investment. At least once every one to two years, get a professional headshot taken. Keep an eye out for business events that offer free or low-cost headshots.
- iPhone users > use portrait mode. It’s amazing. Have your friend who actually doesn’t mind taking 20 photos of you take your pictures and they will rival professional photographs.
- Not sure how to pose or what to take photos of? Pick 5-10 accounts that you love and take note of their style of photos. Practice some new poses and look at the types of angles that are shot in their photos then incorporate what you’ve learned!
