Every day, new knowledge is available - and put to the test. Acquired knowledge can be revised at any time. This leads to uncertainty. For companies as well. Because companies are increasingly feeling the need to constantly change. More and more often Experts be consulted! And that's where you come in. Because this is your chance to be Expert on the market. How does this work and what you should bring with you? In this article you will learn Expert tips to become a specialist!

Of course, simply calling yourself an expert does you little good. To become an expert, you need more than just the title. Passion, Discipline and a good portion of Engagement are the prerequisite for your success. And once you've made it down the rocky path, you'll be able to pass on expert tips to your target audience.

How do you become an expert?

What drives you? First of all, it's about your drive. After all, everyone is driven by something. What drives you? What is your source of motivation? What subject do you burn for? Which topic makes you think: "Yes! This is my thing!"?

A motivated person completes tasks with a completely different Intention. Be someone like that too. Take a quiet minute and think about what moves you. Only those who motivated approach to the matter, can ultimately achieve success. You already have a talent in a subject area? Excellent. Then intensify your focus and concentrate fully on your subject.

3 years to become an expert

And bam, you're an expert? We need you disappoint. It doesn't happen that fast. Unfortunately, there is no shortcut to becoming a specialist. As a rough guide, you can plan on 3 years of intensive study. That means you have to Discipline, Time and Patience bring it. There is even a 10,000 hours rulewhich says that you have to work intensively on your subject for 10,000 hours. 10,000 hours in which you constantly educate yourself and continue to exchange ideas. 10,000 hours until you have reached the point where you can pass on expert tips as an expert yourself.

You are never fully trained

Further education is your hobbyhorse. Only if you always keep yourself up to date will you have the chance to prove yourself as an expert. As a professional, you are constantly reading new articles and trade journals.

Read up on your subject. Look for specialist literature and read the books. The more intensively you deal with the topic, the better. And soon you will have internalized the necessary knowledge so that you can share it with others. Take the opportunity and attend seminars and lectures. There you will also have the opportunity to exchange ideas with others. And you can count on that: There will always be new insights, new lectures and new knowledge. You can constantly improve yourself.

Be like a sponge and soak up everything knowledge on.
Your knowledge is only worth half as much if it doesn't include... experiences comes along. The same is true the other way around. Only experience, not background knowledge, will only get you so far.

What can you offer your customers?

What makes you unique, what is your benefit? Why should customers go to you and buy from you? Present your unique selling point to the forefront. You can provide expert knowledge on a particular topic, that's great. Decide for a Niche position. The more special you are, the easier the Positioning. Yours Target group is smaller but there is usually less competition. You are the expert in your field. Prospective customers will approach you because only you can help them. That's how it should be, isn't it? Especially relevant for your offer are your Positioning and your Value proposition.

Target group

Get to know your target group and analyze them. It's no use being an expert and trying to appeal to the masses. Your target group is your Capital. So deal with her intensely. What is her biggest problem? What do you want? Customers? How can you help them with your knowledge?


You know everything about your subject area? You are a specialist and have already devoured all the knowledge there is in this area? Then you can start branding yourself and your brand. This doesn't mean that you directly put an expert stamp on your homepage. Usually, the person who shouts expert the loudest comes across as the most unserious. Experts know that in order to remain an expert, they must constantly educate themselves. But you should stamp your specialty with your name.

Share your know-how

Because this is very important for your success: Share your knowledge! It does you no good if you keep your knowledge to yourself. Knowledge is there to be passed on. The exchange with other specialists can bring you valuable information and new perspectives. Continuously educate yourself and gain important experience. Ideally, you should have your expert knowledge certified. This way, your customers know that your expertise is not based on castles in the air.

Important: You may be an expert, but you shouldn't make the mistake of throwing around technical terms. The trick is to convey complex content to your target group in a simple and understandable way. Without the question marks appearing on their faces.

practice makes perfect

Last: Having doubts about being an expert? Don't be too self-critical. No master has ever fallen from the sky. And if you're completely honest with yourself, you've certainly bailed people out with your expert knowledge before. And you didn't even realize it. Of course, every now and then the thought sparks in, "Am I really good enough? Is my work enough?" But that shouldn't stop you! Don't give up. There are always people who are better. But that doesn't mean you're bad.
