Chesser’s agency, Rise Up Media & Marketing, will be helping entrepreneurs at The Best Of You Expo position themselves as an authority in their marketplace with Authority Positioning & Content Marketing by getting them exposure on hundreds of Major Media Network platforms.

Chesser believes that times are changing and attracting attention to a brand; business owners need to promote their business and themselves as a brand. People are moving away from liking a brand and more toward wanting people. Authority marketing tactics are gaining mainstream appeal, and business leaders are discussing their successes.

Most business professionals say that Positioning & Branding themselves as an Authority is the single most important thing they can do to increase their perceived value within a marketplace. That is why it is so important to “Be Seen By Google” As An Authority & “Be Seen On Google” As An Authority. With this advantage, they can “Stand Out” and not be just another face in the crowd. Giving their prospects a reason to pick them above all the competition and be the person they want to work with makes them the trusted expert they want to use.
