THE EFFECTIVE CEO II::: Be Your Own Number One Fan

Posted: February 19, 2011 in Business, Corporate, Education, Financial

CEOs promote their company and their achievements. They know that buyers don’t want to purchase from losers. Announcing your achievements may feel boastful, but can you imagine Oprah or Gates being shy about broadcasting their triumphs?

With humility, let your target market know any time you score – whether it’s finishing a high-profile project, winning a relevant award or expanding your services. Who you know is important, but even more important is who knows you. Achievements are your resume and they expand your credibility. Announcing your achievements also validates the choices people have made on your behalf – the business who hired you or the client who recommended you wants to know he made a bet on a winner.

– Write a note. Send newsworthy communications to your clients, friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances. Be concise, stir in a little humor, and people will look forward to receiving your news,

– Roll out a news flash. Craft short, punchy message or place a hyperlinked tagline under your email signature to take recipients to your website.

    Announcing ones achivement is not been boastful, its about telling people about the stuff you are made of and showing your cliets that you are the best because only the best have achivements and all cliets wants the best it is a kind of advertorials and part of cv.
    Even if it seems boastful,it is no offence, one need to be proud of his achivements though with sense of humility
