“We’re not here to blend in!” (Kris Ward)
In a previous episode on the REPUTATION REVOLUTION podcast, I spoke with Kris Ward, the author of the book, Win The Hour Win The Day, and host of the podcast of the same name.
That conversation centred on how subject matter leaders can leverage their time and resources while building their professional personal brand in the marketplace.
In doing my research for that interview, I was impressed with how well Kris was building her own professional online presence (her face was everywhere!), so I decided to ‘keep the tape running’ and then delved with Kris into her story.
That’s what this episode is all about: Kris’s story, from returning to her business after the passing of her husband, through to finding her voice on social media (becoming “bold faced”), growing her podcast (which has over 1000 5-star reviews), writing as book, as well as a behind-the-scenes peek behind her wildly-successful podcast guesting strategy.
Kris walks us through her struggle to sharpen her point of view through her content, and how she became featured on some 400 award-winning podcasts, radio and TV shows throughout the world. Of note, she has been interviewed by one of the original sharks from Shark Tank, Kevin Harrington, and ABC’s The Secret Millionaire – James Malinchak.
The theme of this discussion really is a ‘perfect collision’ of owned media, earned media and social media – something we talk about often here on the Reputation Revolution. You can see now why I got Kris back on the show for a follow-up episode!
Kris has a blog, plus she has a growing presence on YouTube, TikTok Instagram and LinkedIn! Phewww! She’s a dynamo, you’re going to love this interview!
