Digital Presence: How to Beat Out Your Competitors 100% of the Time

Your digital presence is about providing value to your clients. For attorneys, it's intrinsically linked to whether a prospect chooses you or your competitor.

In Billy’s eyes, it's all about concisely articulating what you’re selling and being in control of your narrative. He goes as far as to say that the amount of money you make directly correlates with the value you provide and the problems you solve. So how can you create a world-class digital presence? Billy drops some truth bombs on content, speed, and delivery to get you started and keep you relevant.

Why Making People Laugh Will Make You Money

Billy Gene is certain about one thing — right now, making people laugh makes big bucks. If you can create entertaining content that engages more viewers, platforms will charge you less. So how can you perfectly execute social media content? Can sales pitches ever truly be enjoyable for a viewer?

Billy sets our listeners a challenge because he believes that if the stakes are high enough, anyone can be entertaining, and anyone can succeed at this — you just have to think outside the box.

Key Takeaways:

  • You need to continue to learn to stay relevant. Businesses only have themselves to blame when the market moves ahead of them.
  • The speed at which you execute is more important than the production quality of the content you put out. When it comes to crowding out the competition, you have to be there first.
  • Get your message on point. Don't hold onto anything that's not working out so well. If your message sucks, Billy says, then get a new one.
