WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL BRAND?

WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL BRAND?
Branding is how people perceive YOU on the internet.  So you must be yourself at all times.  You never want to misrepresent yourself in something you do not believe in fully.
You can be selling Internet Marketing skills, health and beauty products, self-help advice, or MLM’s.  If you have gone through the system you are selling and believe in it or have an MLM that you use yourself and enjoy, only honesty will pour out into your brand.
So don’t be afraid of just being YOU.  You are as unique as your fingerprint and always have something distinct to offer.  You may not see it yourself, so you must do some soul searching.

SOUL SEARCHING
Soul searching is your inner passion.  You may have gone for years not living your passion, but in the internet marketing world you are free to do so.  What interests you the most?  What are you passionate about?  Write it down in your blog.  You will be surprised how many people will identify with you if you pour out the honest passions of your soul.

STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
There is a lot of competition out there, but don’t stress it. You are unique and have your unique qualities to offer.  If you have a good sense of humor, write in that way.  If you are more informational write it that way.  If you are passionate about technology and know some ins and outs of the techno world, share this important information with others.

It is important here to be in sync with your values and be honest about it. Also, ask yourself how much you can give to people with what you know.  People like free advice.
They also like a good idea to help them think.  Never underestimate yourself please!  Whatever you have learned in your journey, you are one up on someone that doesn’t know that.  This will make you stand out and people will be attracted to you.

The secret to standing out from the crowd, is to  Just be YOU!  Remember… there’s a lot of them, but only ONE OF YOU.

FIND YOUR NICHE AND GO FOR IT
Here is where you have a lot of fun.  Set up a blog in your name, set up a Facebook fan page with your name.  Create a Linked-In, YouTube andTwitter profile and presence.  Consider developeing Ezine articles, perhaps even e-Books.  Now give good valuable information and  share it within all these networks.  Why?

BECAUSE THIS IS THE WAY GOOGLE READS “YOU”!
Your name is important on all your social networks, because if all your accounts have your name on them, Google will take notice.  Google counts a link from one site to another as sort of a “vote” for that site.  Sites with the most “votes” get higher search results. So the more places your name exists, the higher your quality and relevance will be when someone Googles your name, or searches keywords that involve you.

THERE IS SO MUCH TO PERSONAL BRANDING, THIS IS JUST A BRIEF OVERVIEW TO GET YOU THINKING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

    Hey Donna,

    You are so right about being yourself.
    Being authentic is something you just can’t hide as energetically, that’s what people are attracted to.
    I think it does take a little while for people to find their feet when learning about branding. It takes a little while to realize that people are attracted to ‘your’ uniqueness.

    Just as there is only one, wonderfully unique, Donna 🙂

    Thanks for your reply…I’m touched! I certainly feel that we all have to love ourselves in order to have people love us as attraction marketers. Trouble is…most of us don’t really do and are critical about our selves. “hag ups” as they used to say way back in the day.
    I believe in teaching my clients that that is the Number one rule is to go within and to learn a method to love yourself and put it out there.

    Thank you, Donna

    You make a great point about being yourself. I think that’s where most people get confused. They think they have to almost create a character to play. People absolutely see through that though.

    Thank you Kristy for replying to my post. Yes, it is true, we are all intuitive and can see right through people. I tell my clients to be themselves because there is that “law of attraction” and we are all attracted to different kinds of people. As the old saying goes:
    “to thine one self be true” Regards, Donna

    Personal branding is indeed important if you want to stand out of crowd of other people in business. Business branding and personal branding are two different things. I believe if you have strong personal branding then anything you wills start, can get great start and audience at first.

    nice post Donna!
