Networking. If you’re like me, that word sends a shiver down your spine and calls to mind the same nightmare we’ve all been having since high school: standing alone, in a room full of people, struggling to figure out how to talk to strangers without feeling like an invader.
Or, maybe you’re not like me. Maybe you get excited at the notion of meeting new people, of putting yourself out there.
The reality is, if you’re a content creator, you can be either, or somewhere in between; networking will always be an integral part to growing as a creator and a professional, and, I’m afraid, it’s not optional.
Meeting and getting to know others, be they creators, viewers, companies, who or whatever, is how you make sure your audience, your brand, and your platform continue to grow into the future. It’s how you discover new opportunities, how you gather the resources to make your content better, to make your career more lucrative. It’s how you develop your professional network, your collaborators, your coworkers, your support system. All of this means you have to meet new people, to put yourself out there, and, believe me, I know, this can be tough.
But, and I say this as an introvert myself, it can be done, and it doesn’t have to be a chore, an obligation filled with dread. Through the information contained in this course, we’ll give you the tools you need to build a networking strategy that works for you, so you can grow as a creator without anxiety.
