Personal branding is the practice of people marketing themselves and their careers as brands. While previous self-help management techniques were about self-improvement, the personal branding concept suggests instead that success comes from self-packaging. Personal Branding is essentially the ongoing process of establishing a prescribed image or impression in the mind of others about an individual, group or organization. Today’s interview is with Sarah Santacroce on personal branding, here are some of the topics we will try to cover during the show.
  • Personal vision and mission statements
  • Defining a target audience; how broad does that definition need to be to be both focused (narrow enough) and yet inclusive (broad enough)?
  • Online and offline assets?
  • Getting exposure
  • Mentors
  • Monitoring your brand
  • Authenticity: Be yourself because everyone else is taken

Show Notes:

  • Even if you are employed at a company, focus on building your personal brand
  • Understand who your target audience is on Linkedin and focus on that
  • While online presence is important do not forget your offline presence! Business Cards are still important
  • Do benchmarking and get inspired by brands you like
  • It takes time to get people to trust you and like what you are sharing
  • There are people that want to do business with you because you are you!
  • Personal branding is not done alone. Join groups, network with people and collaborate as much as possible, even with competitors
