There are many good reasons to share knowledge, but don’t do so because you want to profit from it. Share because it will help others, and to build your personal brand. Doing so may end up being profitable, but that will be a nice side benefit, not the main objective.

Here are ways to share your knowledge:

1. Tweet and answer questions

2. Present, speak, lead discussions, and deliver training

  • Present regularly within your organization, to other firms, at industry conferences, on con calls, in community meetings, and in client meetings
  • Ask an established expert to allow you to co-present
  • Offer to help facilitate a panel discussion
  • Develop and conduct training
  • Offer to present on a webinar sponsored by a company or organization relevant to your specialty
  • Upload videos of presentations, tips, and training to YouTube
  • Start a podcast

3. Post, write, and publish

  • Post to a community threaded discussion, and reply to the questions and comments of others
  • Write a blog post, for example, using LinkedIn
  • Publish a document, for example, using Google Docs
  • Upload a presentation to SlideShare
  • Create a website, for example, using Google Sites
  • Write an article for a publication
  • Publish a book about your experiences, philosophies, and insights
