When we want to be seen it takes work…hard work.  However, it’s clearly an invaluable aspect of the business world.  Similarly, we all want to see but what we see is dependent on what we’re looking for.

One aspect of being seen that we may overlook is— taking steps to get in front of others.  If what you’re doing isn’t getting the results you desire, it may be time to change things up.

Some ideas for when we want to be seen:

  1. Blogging
  2. Podcasting (either creating your own or being a guest)
  3. Posting to social media
  4. Writing
  5. Collaborating
  6. Networking
  7. Sponsorship
  8. Hosting
  9. Calling
  10. Presenting (my personal favorite)

Which of these are you currently doing? Which of these do you plan to do in the next month?

Some ideas for when we want to see:

  1. Determine your objective(s).
  2. Set your intention. [What do you intend to achieve?]
  3.  Conduct your research.
  4.  Develop your list of insightful questions and modify them if warranted.

We may use “binoculars” to see more.  This means that others may also use “binoculars” and that means we’re being seen.  If we’re not being seen it’s easy to be forgotten and that’s a costly mistake in business.  Similarly, if we don’t see what’s out there we may miss something vitally important.

So let’s get busy ensuring we can see and be seen…and while that’s hard work, it’s well worth it.
