Does the idea of promoting your services to prospective Customers give you the creeps? For many, it’s as painful as falling off a bicycle. But if you’re an introvert, it can be scarier than a haunted forest on Halloween.
If you could use some tips on how to promote yourself when you’re an introvert in an extrovert’s world, you’re in the right spot. Here’s how to sparkle like the true gem you are.
Make the most of online communities
Whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or TikTok, social media offers an easy way for introverts to humble brag about pretty much anything. And since current circumstances have forced most of us to do things digitally, this can be an introvert’s time to shine! Online communities allow you to engage with people you most likely wouldn’t in real-life situations. Being able to break down these initial barriers means a future meeting won’t be half as anxiety inducing.
Leverage your vulnerability
In today’s digital world, it can be hard to tell fact from fiction. That’s why being open, honest, and sincere goes a long way. Share the honest and vulnerable parts of yourself, but only as you’re comfortable. This shows others your inner strength, and you’ll gain more confidence each time you share what you have to offer.
Do your research
It can’t be said enough: The more you know, the more you’ll grow. Educating yourself is the most powerful weapon you have in changing the world. And you’re in luck because Isagenix has a plethora of ways to learn about our products, biz opps, and so much more.
Get involved with events
Yes, we know that it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other. (Snow day? How about a snow YEAR, kids?) Until we can return to “precedented times,” take advantage of online events as much as possible. This is a great way to meet new people, ask real-time questions, and stay on top of your business A-game, all from the coziness of your couch.
(Tip for real-world networking? Have an event buddy who can accompany you to meetings and social gatherings to take the edge off.)
Choose progress over perfection
Don’t expect instant results. Self-promotion is hard work for introverts. But like anything worthwhile, it takes time. If you set yourself up for success by having a plan of what you want to achieve, how you’ll get it done, and a backup plan, you’re more likely to stay on track. Celebrate the tiniest of these successes, and remember — the world needs your unique, introverted self to keep this crazy world in check.
