The solution is simple – Become part of the conversation. Then you’re no longer talking at your audience, but talking with them. Becoming a thought leader is the most efficient way to achieve the kind of loyalty and brand value that helps you stand out from the crowd.

Establishing you and your team as thought leaders is extremely valuable. There are challenges to measuring your thought leadership efforts, but looking at the right metrics prove what is common sense – when someone provides valuable information, they become a trusted advisor. And when the time comes, those advisors are the ones business leaders will turn to.

Master your next web redesign with these simple tips

Most businesses need to redo their website at some point to refine their message, reach a new audience, or make the site easier to use. Developing and launching a new site has a lot in common with remodeling your physical business. In both cases, your goal is to create the best possible space for doing business. That requires careful planning and ongoing communication with the agency handling your site redesign. Here are eight best practices we recommend, based on our experiences helping clients make the most of their websites.

 

  1. Set your goals before you begin and refer to them as you go. Your agency will base the redesign on these goals, so spend as much time as you need goal-setting with your company’s decisionmakers and your agency before you move ahead. When questions arise during the design process, use the goals to guide your answers.
  2. Focus on what your audience wants. In most cases, this means refocusing your site content on customer benefits, with technical features taking a supporting role. Businesses sometimes struggle with this step, especially those that offer technical or complex services and products.

Personal thought leadership can reach your business customers

Positioning yourself as an expert or innovator in your niche is the goal of every thought leadership program, but there are different ways to accomplish the goal. The key is to reach your audience in more than one channel and to offer a steady stream of fresh, relevant information to help them with their decision-making.

Effective avenues for thought leadership include:

  • Sharing original content on your personal or company blog
