Enhance Your Expert Identity By Teaching the Classes Everyone Wants to Take!
By Susan A. Friedmann, CSP

Seminars, workshops, boot camps, and other educational programming are very popular, with the public and with savvy entrepreneurs. We're in an age where information is the ultimate commodity: Our value is largely determined by how much we know and what we can do with that knowledge.

Anything a consumer can do to add to their knowledge base has real value and appeal. At the same time, an opportunity to showcase your specialized knowledge can enhance your Expert Identity and make your services more attractive to the buying public.

Seminars are excellent ways to diversify your existing business. You can incorporate products and services to market through seminars. You don’t actually make a sales pitch, of course, as that would cheapen a seminar presentation. But you could offer products and services that have a natural appeal or fit with the seminar audience.

In addition, conducting seminars adds to your “brand identity” and builds up that identify. Potential customers purchase for a wide variety of reasons, price being only a small factor.

Never assume you know what is of interest to your clientele. Ask them — either anecdotally, during the course of business, or as part of an outreach campaign. The topics you might think they can't miss might leave them snoring, while something that you considered insignificant could have great appeal. Do your research!

Step Three: Select a Topic
Use the results of the research you conducted in step number two to select a topic. What are the most important points to cover? Create a presentation focusing on those points. Remember, you want to appeal to the wants and needs of your target audience.

Step Four: Select a Format
