As introverts, we are wary of self-promotion. Thankfully, there are ways to market your online business that get you in front of the people you want to help—without being pushy. So, how can you leverage avenues like YouTube, blogging and podcasting to connect with potential clients? How can you take advantage of content creation as a marketing strategy, building an audience that is hungry for your message?
Bo Miller is the creator of I Speak People, a platform designed to help introverts thrive in an extroverted world.
