Make a Name for Yourself: 11 Personal Branding Power Tips | Social Media Today

Make a Name for Yourself: 11 Personal Branding Power Tips | Social Media Today | The Art of Communication | Scoop.it

Perhaps we don’t have that much in common. Ah, but we do. Personal brands are we. Our agendas may differ—better job, more clients, book sales, or (your goal here)—but we seek the same things: recognition, respect, influence and success.

You, my friend, are a brand.

A photographer. Life coach. Presentation expert. Alternative energy entrepreneur. Website developer. Skin care clinician. These are six simplified profiles of clients who have hired me recently to help them create more effective online marketing by developing their personal brand.

This is no trend. It’s social media, publishing, marketing, sales, work, play, passion and everything you read about all rolled into one.

I realize now it’s what I’ve been doing (and sometimes struggling with) since I went to work for myself. Or is it? It’s probably more accurate to say it’s what I’ve been doing since my bar mitzvah—defining the man I am.

With that in mind, I submit to you personal branding is something you need to understand. It’s something you need to develop deliberately—even if what you’ve been doing and saying to this day has been largely accidental.

Here's a look at the ins and outs of personal branding.

Kathleen Smith's curator insight, September 24, 2014 12:08 AM

The author of this article has given 11 branding tips in terms of social media. He also refers to the personal branding experts and some helpful books that they wrote. 5 out of 11 tips are from Michael Hyatt's book called 'Platform'. This article is really helpful especially to start up bloggers or marketers trying to make a name for themselves or working for a company that is trying to build a brand.

Personal branding is merely a way of selling yourself, and it’s never been more important, thanks to social media.

Social media has given us a platform to broadcast our personal messaging to accomplish our goals. For professional purposes, we have LinkedIn to connect with others in our industry. For sharing with friends and family, there’s Facebook. Pinterest is where we show off our passions. Instagram is for visual self-expression. Lastly, Twitter is all of the above.

You would think it would be clear that any business’s most valuable workers aren’t some kind of uniform game pieces, human checkers that can be swayed, swapped, motivated and moved around the board at will. But this fact of life is apparently not obvious to millions of managers at every level in organizations of all sizes. They continue to believe that, in almost everything involving people, one size or one approach fits all.
