Credibility Coach Johnny Medina Medina’s Top 3 Tips for Gaining Instant Credibility Within Your Industry




In the current era of trust economy, achieving and maintaining credibility is everything for both individuals and businesses. You need credibility in everything from; personal and professional credibility, brand credibility, products/ services credibility and more.


Why Credibility is an important Asset


When you first get into a profession or a business, people don’t know your expertise, the value, and ethics you hold dear or the quality of your services or products. In addition, consumers are always reluctant to change since most new market players come with risks such as; poor quality of services and products, bad work habits, overcharging and so on. One of the best things you can do to get your name out there and achieve a steady stream of customers is to establish credibility in your industry. It’s much harder to convince people to do business with you if you haven’t yet established your credibility. Credibility helps your customers to trust you and build long-lasting relationships with you. Building credibility is also important for long-term success as it helps more people become aware of your expertise, helps your current customers stay loyal, and is a good strategy to stay ahead of your competition.

Credibility Coach Johnny Medina’s Top 3 Tips for Gaining Instant Credibility Within Your Industry


  1. Press Features


Press features are the ultimate ticket to gaining credibility, building trust in your audience’s minds and staying ahead of your competition. When your expertise and knowledge is newsworthy, it enhances the authority of your image and gives a strong signal that your brand and expertise are reputable. Press coverage will enable you to be seen as an expert and an instant authority in your field. It also allows you to share your opinions, and educate and target a greater audience. But not just anyone can be featured on media platforms. You have to understand your niche, and have great expertise, experience, and content to back up your authority. To attract coverage, write press releases for media outlets you respect, whether it’s a local publication or national magazine. Other clever ways to get featured in the press include; offering to be a guest contributor, product launches and sponsoring local events. Leverage your press feature to further gain credibility by using your coverage as a testimonial in your advertising. Add the feature to your social media profiles and website and use it to create a Facebook Advert. You can also use your press feature to pitch for further press coverage with other journalists and media outlets.


  1. Podcast Interviews


Never before has there been a better time to start a podcast to boost your credibility. This is because podcasts are all the rage right now, gripping audiences everywhere. Podcasts are easy and quick to produce and provide a great opportunity to connect with your audience. They are a win-win situation; you further your personal brand and gain credibility and at the same time your listeners are learning something from you. Podcasts are the most underrated and underutilized forms of marketing yet studies show that there has been a rapid increase in the use of podcasts over the past few years. A study conducted by Edison Research showed that approximately 21% of Americans use podcasts every month. Teaching a mass of people through podcasts and expands your brand in ways that written content can’t, because not everyone reads, but most people watch and listen to something. It is a solid way of building credibility, through brand love, trust, and expertise. It’s also a cool, fun, thing to do, what better way to stand out as an expert and showcase what you’re about?


  1. Becoming a Contributor


Contributing to major publications with fresh, interesting and authoritative content helps you to establish yourself an authority in your particular field. Sharing your knowledge with millions of other people online gets your brand noticed. It is one of the quickest and most efficient ways of establishing yourself as an expert because you get to reach a new large audience you normally wouldn’t get to. Another major benefit is that if a publication publishes your article, it’s like they are vouching for you or endorsing you in a way. Most people search the internet for answers when they have a question or a problem. Recent studies also show that more than 80% of consumers search for content about a product or service before making a purchase online. Being a contributor enables you to have access to these consumers and control exactly what they are going to see. There’s no doubt your audience will have confidence in you after reading an authoritative article with your name on it. Becoming a contributor also gives you the chance to use SEO boosting backlinks to your profile and everyone who reads the article will be a potential lead. To be a contributor, you have to be an expert professional in the field you are writing about or a closely related field. It’s also essential to pitch only your best content to appear more authoritative than your competitors. Conclusion Without a doubt, credibility does not occur naturally and cannot be done overnight. Instead, it must be cultivated and effective strategies such as the above Credibility coach Jonathan Medina’s tips must be put in place. Jonathan Medina has helped countless people cultivate credibility and increase customer loyalty.

Ariella Lorio Widely Recognized As The Done For You Girl Helps Thousands Quit Their Job



Giving up the traditional 9 to 5 job is difficult for anyone. Though this kind of day to day grind can be difficult to sustain, it is what tends to make ends meet. Making the decision to drop that in exchange for your dreams is something that many people do not dare to try. 

Ariella Iorio is a widely recognized and successful serial entrepreneur that helps people learn affiliate marketing. She is on a mission to teach people to work from home and fire their bosses instead of going to the office everyday. She abandoned the 9 to 5 in order to achieve happiness in her life. 

“I interned for  Wesley Virgin for two years for free, and he taught me everything I needed to know. He is the King of online marketers.” Ariella recounts.

For Ariella, there was a turning point that led her to change the way she thought about her day to day life. Early on in her college career, Ariella suffered serious injuries after being in a terrible car crash. Though she eventually recovered, the experience fundamentally changed her life. The trauma that she experienced from that period caused her to rethink what she was doing in her life as a college student and whether or not this kind of life was worth it in the end. 

“I was in a terrible car accident in which I broke my back, neck, and arm. It was a terrible experience.”

She moved on from this car accident, but couldn’t help but think there was more to this life. She didn’t want to struggle to make ends meet and worry about paying the rent each month

Back then, the work that she was putting in did not equal the output she was getting in terms of work-life balance and the money she was making. She knew she needed to change something to increase her happiness and believes she manifested her now mentor/business partner Wesley Virgin. Ariella always believed in meditation and visualization and attributes that much to her success.

“I now make 600,000 in four months with affiliate marketing. The company now nets 20k a day.” Ariella explains.

Though she has become incredibly successful now, Ariella had a rough start to her business journey. Her desire to follow her dreams drastically changed her lifestyle. She has experienced failure and difficulties with people supporting her in following her dreams. No one was convinced that she would succeed, not even some members of her own family.

“I was living in the basement for 2 years before becoming successful. I had one failed company with Wesley Virgin before the Done for You Services business that we run now. I also dropped out of college and was kicked out of my house for believing in my dreams and not going the ‘traditional route.’” Ariella states.

Now they both are dominating the industry, but most of all, changing lives. Ariella and Wesley pride themselves on finding the correct system for all of their users. They understand that finding the correct audience for your online business can be difficult, but they are there to help walk their clients through all the stages of the process to ensure success.

“We have a Done for You System that we basically do all the work for them such as give them the offer to promote, the videos, the Facebook target audience, have a coach call them to set up their Facebook campaign and stick with them to hold their hand throughout this process guaranteeing them their first sale online. We have three phases: mindset (our millionaire in training group), execution (the done for you services program), and the mastery program (Facebook and youtube ads).” Ariella says.

Alex Saenz Is A Millionaire At Age 23 Because, Despite His Hardships, He Always Tried To Work Harder And Do More



Hardships during our childhood years often have a long and profound impact on our lives. Alex Saenz experienced a childhood full of difficulties and hardship that he was able to overcome and become the person he is today. Instead of letting it get him down, he used it as fuel to achieve his dreams.

“I grew up in west phoenix from very humble beginnings. I lived in a trailer park from the age of 13-18. During the ages of 13-18, my parents divorced and I dealt with a lot of emotional and mental issues such as anxiety, depression, loneliness and abandonment. Having felt all this, I worked my butt off in highschool and graduated with a 4.2 GPA.” Recounts Alex.

With this kind of GPA, Alex had the opportunity to go to plenty of elite colleges. Instead, his interest was piqued by real estate investing. Though he had very little money in his bank account, Alex wanted to achieve his goal of making six or seven figures, so he began his venture into real estate.

“At the time of jumping into real estate, I had less than $500 in his bank account. This was Money I had saved up from working at a grocery store pushing carts where I only made $7.50 an hour from pushing carts. Having no emotional or financial support, I dove into real estate head first by door knocking and putting signs out on street corners. It took me nine months to get my first real estate wholesale deal. During this time, my mom moved to Nevada, which was 18 hours away. I then had to move into my friend’s house and work out of my friend’s little brother’s room, which was spiderman themed. I started to dig deeper and work harder by marketing for real estate deals.” States Alex.

Though these months were difficult for Alex, like before, he pushed through it and finally made his first closing. This first deal changed everything for Alex. He was only 19 and had already closed a sale and quickly began closing other sales. He began to expand his team and hire other agents to help build his business and close more sales.

“Having closed my first real estate deal by January 2016, I took off in real estate. I was 19 when I closed my first real estate deal! In 2016, still at the age of 19, I closed 12 real estate wholesale deals for $120,000 in revenue. Keeping living expenses low, I invested nearly everything back into business. I hired two sales guys to help hunt down more real estate deals, by 2017, the real estate company grew to five total team members!” Exclaims Alex.

Alex has never looked back since beginning his journey. His business took off and he was able to create his real estate business All in Entrepreneurs with his two partners: Carlos Reyes and Sal Shakir. He also has started creating youtube videos in which he shares his life story and ways to help others learn the tricks of the real estate trade.

“In 2017, my company closed 62 deals for $615,000 in revenue with more than 60% profit margins. This was all done at 20 years young. In 2018, being 21, I continued to grow my real estate company and Co-Founded ALL IN ENTREPRENEURS with his partners Carlos Reyes and Sal Shakir. In 2018, Over 100 deals were closed, and it was the first 7 figure year in business and I was only 21. Fast forward to 2020, I have closed over 300+ deals with my 7 figure real estate acquisition firm.” States Alex.

Though Alex has faced numerous challenges, he has worked hard to overcome them and achieve his goals. He has always had a good mindset, which has helped him come as far as he has at such a young age. In the future, Alex hopes to keep expanding his real estate business as well as continue pioneering his new solar power company.

“I am a millionaire now, currently 23 years old, building more companies, earning 6 figures monthly through real estate, and consulting solar and SAS (tech/software) companies. I am most excited to help others overcome poverty, bad programming and helping younger entrepreneurs achieve success at a young age!” Remarks Alex.
