If you don’t currently implement a brand strategy for yourself, then you are likely missing out on a lot of opportunities. Having a personal brand can change how people perceive you and your capabilities.
Branding yourself helps to establish top-of-mind awareness in your line of business. When people think of you, they will immediately associate you with what you do, and conversely, when people think of the industry you are in, they will think about you. This is a perfect way to ensure that friends, family, and new acquaintances come to you for your services.
Your personal brand should have clarity to it. Your branding should show people who you are and exactly what you do. A good brand will often convey your attributes and values while showing what you do. When you invest in your own personal brand, it adds implied value to your image and your services – guiding more people to want to work with you.
Once you’ve mastered your own brand in your industry, you can actually use this to go out and teach others. By building a name for yourself and growing your business through it, people will want to listen to you and learn how they can be successful as well. Teaching others in your industry further establishes you as the leader in your market and spreads your reach even more – and this is the goal: to elevate your platform to gain exposure.
You can increase your personal brand with the following items:
– Professional branding (photos and logo)
– Introduction videos for potential clients to view
– Actively blogging to share expert advice
– Creating an ongoing, informative video series
– Having a professionally created, mobile-responsive website
