Many times as entrepreneurs and bloggers, we get tripped up about the best way to provide value for our audience.
Honestly, most of the time people tend to over complicate this, so in today’s post I want to shed some light on this important topic.
Since I know you really want to create awesome posts that are read, loved, shared, and that keep your audience coming back for more, this post should help you.
3 Easy Tips to Help You Provide Value For Your Audience
1. Give yourself credit for the knowledge you already have
Often times, as we learn things in our business and our niche, we start to take our knowledge for granted.
We start to assume that everybody already knows the things we know, and that we don’t have much in the way of new value to share.
This is not true.
Here’s the thing…
You know more than you think you do. Way more.
And, even if you feel like a bit of a novice in some areas, remember that as long as you know more than the person you are teaching and they are getting value from what you’re sharing, you’re right on track.
So don’t forget to give yourself credit for the things you know. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that we’ve taken the time to learn that can make the biggest difference for someone that hasn’t learned them yet.
And, regardless of what niche you’re in, if it’s a niche you a truly passionate about, I’m sure you know lots of little things that can make a big difference for someone.
So, rather than feeling like you have to become a professor on your topic and go out and acquire more information before you can teach anybody anything, start with what you already know. Your audience will love you for it.
2. Stay one step ahead of your audience
As I mentioned in tip #1, as long as you know more than the person your are teaching, you are providing value for them.
So, the key is just to always stay one step in front of your audience, and you will never run out of valuable things to teach them.
Sometimes people get tripped up because they feel like they need to be a complete expert in their niche before they can provide value for people. And, actually, staying just one step ahead of them is often MORE valuable for your audience in terms of them being able to learn and apply what you’re teaching.
The reason for this is that if you are one step ahead of them, they can literally take what you’re teaching them and apply it RIGHT NOW… as opposed to having to learn everything that you know in order to get top the place where they can even apply your tips.
In other words, if you are always 1000 steps ahead of them, they will have to learn the other 999 things in between before your article or video will even be applicable to them. But if you’re just 1 step ahead of them, they can implement right now.
The beauty of this is that when they implement what you’re teaching right now they will generate results right now, too… and there’s nothing like helping someone generate results to develop loyal followers that will start to follow you everywhere, read all of your posts, buy the products you offer, purchase your coaching, etc.
Helping someone get an immediate result is the ultimate success for you… it’s proof that you provided immense value.
3. Always be learning new things in your niche
Learning new things in your niche is important for a couple of reasons.
First of all, it will help you to stay on the cutting edge and ultimately become an expert on your topic over time.
Secondly, as long as you’re consistently learning new things, you will never run out of new things that you can teach your audience or valuable information that you can share with them.
This is the formula for success when it comes to providing value to your audience:
LEARN ➨ DO ➨ TEACH
This is the best way to always stay fresh and current in your niche (learn), to consistently be generating results for yourself (do), and to never run out of ways to provide value for your audience (teach).
As long as your constantly learning new things, you will always be able to provide value for your audience.
*** And, don’t forget to also teach them what you already know like we talked about in tip #1!
There you have it!
