About the Episode:

There’s tremendous value in having great public relations (PR) and growing your following. Amanda Berlin shares with us in this episode why it’s so important and how you can make it happen.

Telling Your Own Story

You’re the one in control of your story, so you should be the one telling it. You, a small business owner, should be showing the world who you are and what you do in your own voice. As you share this authenticity with others, your platform and following will grow.

How to Grow Your Platform

Growing your platform and following might seem like an overwhelming task. In reality, it’s quite simple. You just need to employ the grassroots techniques Amanda teaches. Start by making genuine, personal connections.

When someone shares an article that connects with you, reach out to them and tell them why you liked it, then share it with your audience. It builds their visibility while helping you make a genuine connection. Reach out to someone you want to get to know and extend the offer for them to join your podcast. Try to join other podcasts. Make connections at conferences. The list goes on.

By building better PR and growing your following, you’re positioning your business for success.
