How to Be Famous in Your Profession

by John V. Hedtke

Fame—being well-known and nothing more—can make networking easier and extend your own networking reach. Fortunately, it’s not hard to become famous and it’s a lot of fun. Here’s how:

1. Get online!
Part of your success is your online presence, which can augment your local, regional, and international standing. This includes things like having a website, writing a blog (and contributing to other blogs), and being on LinkedIn, Twitter, and other social media sites. There's a lot to know about social media and making a splash, but the basic rules are:

·         Nobody knows what's best, so be sure to do SOMETHING.
·         Do a lot. Don't try just one thing.
·         Be friendly
·         Provide good content to your readers.
·         Share!
