Show Highlights:

  • Amanda details her philosophy on the 3 Pillars of Visibility:
  1. Collaborations and alliances
  2. Speaking and events
  3. Media
  • Differing amounts of each one of these tactics are necessary to achieve different goals.
  • It’s important to remember that the relationships that you build through collaborations are going to serve the business over time.
  • Who is teaching the thing that you wished people knew before they got to you?
  • Zoom is a great way to make a presentation that may feel less risky than an in-person event right now.
  • Having your projects featured in major publications is great for exposure, validation, and street cred when someone visits your website, but your clients are going to hear about you through someone else the majority of the time.
  • PR is not science; it’s mostly art!
  • Use your expert knowledge when talking across different social media platforms, tailoring the events so that they are relevant to each audience.  Re-use them as needed.
  • These pillars of visibility are things that you have to focus on in your business.
  • You have to constantly be widening your sphere, widening the network that you’re associated with, introducing yourself to new audiences, and being a person of service in providing something of value.
