You probably ask yourself how to establish yourself in your industry and stay relevant for a long time. The answer is not simple. It requires a lot of hard work, dedication, and patience to develop your unique voice that will resonate loudly. In my opinion, one of the crucial things to build your presence is to be completely dedicated to your vision.
How to build a name in your industry
No matter which industry you are in, it is very important to stay focused. You probably have some completely unique vision, and that is your real power. Not too many people have the same idea about some relevant stuff, and that is where you should put your focus.
Be open to new tendencies and explore the ways to develop your idea. There is always room for progress, which is why I advise my friends to always look for new ways to do the same thing. If you want to develop a product or service that will make a difference in the market, be the pioneer and chase what you want to achieve. This way, people will remember you and your work won’t stay unnoticed.
Once you establish your name in your industry, that is the moment when the real game starts. It is crucially important to deliver the same value over and over again and to have the right vision of the future. No other person can create a better improvement of your product or service than you can, which is why you should always look for ways to stay on the right track.
One of the most important things is consistency. When I started my Disrupt project, I had the same vision over time. I wanted to create a place where entrepreneurs and relevant figures come to share their success stories with other people. Many readers found the content extremely helpful and that was a huge satisfaction for me. Moreover, it was a huge obligation too.
So many people are part of Disrupt today, and I have a mission to connect them all. I want to create a place where people come for inspiration, which is why my Disrupt brand makes a real difference in today’s media. I want to share the secrets that added value to my success. The following points are the things that help you build your presence and make you stay relevant in your industry.
1. Be there for people.
No matter what you do in your business, people need you. There is probably a huge demand for something on the market, and people look for ways to satisfy their needs. Be there for people who need your advice, guidance, product or service.
Always listen to what people have to say, and be ready to improve yourself along the way. The ultimate way to deliver value is to solve people’s problems. If you can help someone live a happier and more satisfying life, you will get plenty of rewards.
These rewards don’t come always in the form of money, especially if you are at the beginning of your career, but the rewards are always coming in the form of recognition. People will start to remember your name and turn to you every time they need some solution.
2. Stay on the right track.
There are so many distractions on the way to success. Many people will come to you saying that you are not capable enough, not skillful enough or not lucky enough. Just do not listen to these kinds of people. Numerous ways to reach success are in front of you, and you should find the way that is best for you.
If you have a vision of your name in your industry, be persistent and build your dreams step by step. We were all unknown at some point in our careers, but the consistency and dedication led us to success. It is a matter of time and the right decision-making process that will make a difference. You should be constant and always committed to long-term success. That is how you build your reputation.
3. Consult the right people.
You probably have the person you look up to. This is the person you should consult about your progress. When I started my career in Puerto Rico, I didn’t have many people in my surroundings who had the success I wanted to reach. That is why I built a community of people who were more successful than me at the time. The community started to grow, and that is how Disrupt was made. Today, I speak to people like Casey Adams, Ralph Dibugnara, Tai Lopez and Grant Cardone to get the inspiration for my work.
It is more than important to have the right support on your way to success. Always listen to people who have already made their name in the exact industry. By listening to their advice, you can also present yourself in a better way and build a community of successful people. And, trust me, these people are not vain. They like to share their secrets because they want to see the world full of successful individuals like they are.
How I built my name
If you know the world of entrepreneurs, you know the name of Anthony Delgado. How I built my name is a story I don’t tell every day. It is a story that is quite long and full of struggles. My journey wasn’t easy and it didn’t start with huge money or huge support. I was quite alone on my journey, but I knew one thing that could always make me happy—staying true to myself.
Paul Getter, founder of The Internet Marketing Nerds, says, “Being relevant or making a sincere connection in your industry comes through keeping your finger on the pulse, following trends, and just being authentic. Authenticity is always relevant!” He has always been an inspiration to me.
On my journey, I always knew my potential and wanted to explore it completely. That is my drive that keeps me alive today. I still haven’t reached my true potential, which is why I always look ahead for new challenges. I search for ways to improve myself and give people even more than they expect. If you are ready to serve people on a more personal level, if you can affect their lives positively, you will always find the fans and dedicated followers. That is how you build your name and stay relevant for a long time. Only delivering an extraordinary value can get you an extraordinary reward.
My name is still in the process of making. I want to give people enough information and resources so they can follow their dreams and build their success too. Disrupt is the place where so many valuable things are shared every day that everyone can find something relevant to themselves. My dream is to make people more satisfied with their lives and that is why I always search for ways to do things in a way that has never been done before. With this method, I build my unique presence and stay relevant to people who want success.
Always commit to your dreams
The ultimate advice I would like to tell people who want to stay relevant in their industries is to commit completely. There is no easy way, and most of the time, there is no instant way. You should invest years and years of good practices and the implementation of different strategies to see what works the best. After some time, you will see what resonates with the people the most and what brings you the best rewards.
No name in any industry is built in one day. Successful people invested numerous years of struggle, education and experimenting over different stuff. In the end, they established their names as the leaders in the exact industries. You should follow their journeys and make something unique in your industry. Build a product or service that has never been built before, deliver some unique value that will be revolutionary, create something that can change the world for the better. We are all capable and talented enough to change people’s lives. It is only a matter of our dedication that we invest in our dreams.
Staying relevant in your industry is not only important for your career. It is also crucial for your presence on the market. So many new kids are coming on the stage to steal the show and become popular, but none of them will make a success if they do not commit completely. This means staying up late creating ways to improve yourself, always looking in the mirror with the true and honest look.
If you can be honest with yourself, you know that you are capable to stay relevant to other people. Give people what they need and always try to improve their lives. This is how you improve yours and this is how you build your name that can stay relevant for a long time.
