  • Amanda says a lot of changes in her career happened because she was put under pressure to figure it out.
  • Visibility Circles:
    • 1. Strategic partnerships–Inner most circle. Have you told everyone you know about it? Tell your closest circle, you never know who they know. These partners are the best way to gain trust and get in front of new clients. The trust transfer is when someone already trusts the person introducing them to you.
    • 2. Speaking an event–Middle of circle. This bridges the collaboration aspect with being seen and perceived as an expert in your space.
    • 3. Media–Outer most circle. Amanda says it’s the least likely to bring you new business, but it does validate you.
  • Amanda says that the number one way to find strategic partnerships is to figure out why other partners would want to talk to you. You’re an expert in your space, what do you have to offer their audience? Be very clear on this answer. Then reach out to these other entrepreneurs and ask how you can support them and their audience.
  • Who does something different than you before the same people? It’s much easier to align when you aren’t competing with someone.
  • Amanda says it really helps if you know, and like the persons work who you’re trying to connect with. Watch their content, get to know their audience, so then once you reach out to collaborate, you can be in the know of who they are and who their audience is.
  • Amanda says that another way to collaborate is to invite them IN to something, into a summit you’re doing, a podcast, a Facebook live, and this is immediately giving them an opportunity to get something of value from YOU before you ask them for anything.
  • Amanda says public relations is a piece of marketing. PR tactics look like you have been chosen by your expertise.
  • Create as many authentic relationships as you possibly can. This is a huge piece, Amanda says, to visibility. Be discerning of who you bring into your circle, so you can create relationships with the right people of who will help you and your business, but also to be in line with the growth of your business.
