Here is the Description of This Episode:
“#091: Scott Aughtmon on Taking the First Steps to Becoming an Authority in Your Field“
This episode is one in which Ed interviewed me.
Ed’s description of this episode:
“You’ve heard the advice before… Position yourself an authority in your field … and business will start coming your way. I think many of us understand this idea conceptually.
“But it can be hard to figure out exactly how to become that authority. And the negative self talk and self-sabotage doesn’t help (‘Who do you think you are? You’re no expert! You’re no authority!’).
“Sound familiar? This is a big topic, and it’s one I’d like to cover in more detail over the next few months.
“But today, I wanted to at least kick-start that discussion. My guest is Scott Aughtmon, a consultant and blogger who writes about content marketing, and the author of the book 51 Content Marketing Hacks: Extraordinary Lessons on Creating Content That Will Help You Sell More and Gain More Customers.
“Our conversation may not answer all your questions. But I hope it gets you thinking in the right direction — and that it sets the stage for additional episodes on this important topic.”
