Learn To Be A Transparent Blogger

Some of the most successful bloggers and internet marketers are also some of the most transparent.

They tell you like it is.

They don’t try to hide behind a facade. They don’t try to hide who they really are or what struggles they are going through.

They are successful because they’re being real, because they’re being transparent.

Some even go as far as telling you what tools they are using. What methods they have tried. What has giving them success. Even how much money they have made or how many leads they generate in one day.

Transparency usually translates into a loyal following

Readers what to know what your struggles are and how you are over coming them. It puts you on the same playing field.

Become someone they can relate to, your story is very powerful no matter what it is. Someone needs to hear it.

Through blogging you have the ability to prove that anyone really can be successful at blogging.

How to Be Transparent

Being transparent is like exposing yourself to the world. It can be really difficult.

It’s not easy to lay bare your circumstances. It’s not easy share with people the struggles that you’re going through.

It’s not easy to tell people “how it really is”, as opposed to how you want them to “think that it is” (especially if you’re not getting the results that you want).

But…

That’s the challenge that we all have to overcome, (including myself),  if we truly want to connect with our audiences.

Most people promote the idea that you have to “fake it ’til you make it”. Exaggerating what your results are, exaggerate your income, and so on…

But…that’s a load of crap.

“Fake it ’til you make it” applies to your mindset, not false income claims or other results.

So don’t “fake” anything. Be Real. Be Genuine.

If you went through a rough patch in your life and you were able to overcome it or you learned a lesson from it…share it.

I share my story of how last year I lost it all, the house, the restaurant, and that was the lowest point. But it didn’t beat me down or keep me from going after my dreams.

I continue to pursue network marketing and building my business every day. It is being genuine.

Being Transparent Will Build Your Brand

Everyone talks about branding. Everyone talks about how you have to differentiate yourself from others.

The best way to do this is by being transparent.

No one has your experience. No one has your stories. You are completely unique.

If you struggle with sharing stories about your life and your past, I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone.

Start small at first. Take baby steps if you must.

Then one day you can write a blog post and share the experience you learned about being transparent.

      I love your content about being transparent, it is indeed a key to success. Very nice.

    • Such great points, Katrina. I think it is important to be pretty transparent. One seems more real and identifiable that way.

    • Meire Weishaupt

      Thanks a lot for the article Katrina! I think that transparency is the key, even though it is not too easy to be transparent all the time. But, I also think that it is an exercise in how to overcome our fears and feel more comfortable in some situations!

        I agree Meire. That if you are open with your blog you learn how to be open in other aspects of your life also. We are social beings and learning how to be transparent can be one of the hardest lessons to learn. Even I still struggle with it. 🙂

      Great advice! Building relationships depends on being who you really are…anything less will not last!

      • Katrina

        I do believe that we can spot a “fake” personality a mile a way. 🙂

    • Love this post, Katrina. Transparency is something I’ve been working toward for several years. I’m much better at it now, and I believe as you’ve stated in this post, it comes across through my writing. My readers seem to appreciate it, and it makes my life easier because I can just be 100% authentically me!

        Hi Janet! I am still working on this also. But as I begin to be more open the easier it is to write for my blog. Thanks you for comment and taking time to read this post.

      Great post Katrina. I am constantly struggling to be transparent and get over the feeling of “being exposed.” Thanks!
