Self-promotion is probably the most challenging aspect to building a brand and moving your business plan forward. I know it’s the scariest part for me! However, there are strategies to self-promotion that will help you overcome some of your doubts and make you successful in promoting yourself and your business. I have narrowed down these strategies to 7 secrets to self-promotion.
