Many of us struggle with self-promotion due to the misconception we have about it.
Unfortunately, we’ve all been made to understand that self-promotion is all about bragging and being too proud therefore one shouldn’t do it as you may be conceived as being arrogant.
Most people shy away from self-promotion as they feel it’s bragging and scared of what people would say about them. Instead, they’d sooner try and wait for someone to recognise their achievements before promoting them.
Well, you may be pleased to know that self-promotion is actually not being arrogant but simply showcasing your skills which could be beneficial to people and organizations.
Self-promotion enables you to showcase your uniqueness which gives you a competitive advantage over others especially in circumstances where you are seeking employment, promotions, publicity, endorsements etc.
The more accurately and confidently you speak about your talents, potentials and accomplishments, the more likely the person you are speaking to will make accurate rulings about you.
Self-promotion can help reveal your untapped potentials.
Your best public relation is you! Knowing this is the first step to becoming an expert self-promoter.
