When done right, developing and promoting an amazing personal brand can open you up to incredible opportunities. You can establish yourself as an expert in your field, create your authentic voice, stand out from the crowd and become a trusted leader for your community. In this article, we’re going to share some simple (and super effective) tips to help you develop and promote your personal brand.

But first, you may be wondering – what is a personal brand and is it really important?

Your personal brand is all about how you present yourself and what you become known for. It is a representation of your knowledge, beliefs, skills, passions and personality; everything which makes you, you. For example, Marie Forleo is often regarded as a bubbly, fun and business-savvy leader, while Gabrielle Berstnein is known for being soulful, compassionate and open about her personal experiences.

Take a moment to think about the people you admire – it’s likely that you appreciate specific things about them, from the way they talk to how they make you feel.

According to Forbes, having a weak personal brand will hold you back because your community (and potential customers) won’t know who you are, which makes it more difficult for them to actually trust you. On the other hand, creating a strong personal brand will draw like-minded people towards you and allow you to create a business which thrives on authenticity and honesty.

Developing your amazing personal brand

Step One: Know your story

It’s important that you take some time to reflect on who you are and choose how you want to be known. You might like to journal about it or create a vision board which you can refer back to for guidance. Below, you’ll find some prompts to help you get started!

What am I passionate about?

Which colours best represent me (you can use these to create a colour palette for your personal brand)

How do I want my community feel when they see me (or my posts)?

What are my hobbies and interests?

What are my strengths?

What are my weaknesses?
What are some experiences which really helped define who I am?

Step Two: Craft your Personal Brand Statement

This is a statement about who you are and what you do, which you can include on your website and social media channels. It should clearly say who your target audience is, the value you offer and what makes you unique. For example, “My name is (INSERT NAME) and I help people who (INSERT WHAT YOU HELP PEOPLE WITH). I’m all about (INSERT WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE).” You can play around with this template to infuse it with your authentic voice and grab the attention of your target audience.

Step Three: Choose your channels

There are so many platforms you can use to share your personal brand, but it’s often best to focus on two or three (to start with) and you can build from there. For example, you may want to create a website and share video blogs on Youtube and post daily on Facebook. Or, you may decide to start a podcast and share pins about it on Pinterest. By starting small, you’ll give yourself the opportunity to understand your chosen platforms really well and be consistent, without feeling overwhelmed.

Promoting your amazing personal brand

Tip 1: Send a weekly newsletter

While it’s great to focus on posting regularly and growing your audiences via social media (or another platform, such as Youtube or Soundcloud), it can also be really important to offer a subscription to your newsletter. There are various newsletter subscriptions services available, such as Mailchimp, Convertkit, Infusionsoft and Ontraport (to name a few) which allow you to email the people who subscribe to your newsletter. It’s a great way to strengthen your relationship with your community, share more of your personality and behind-the-scenes content, and offer real value by sharing free resources, such as workbooks and guides.

Tip 2: Be active on your chosen channels

Concentrate on being consistent with your chosen channels, be it Facebook, a blog, Instagram, Pinterest, a podcast, Youtube, Twitter, Snapchat, or whatever else you may decide to use. Your audience should know when to expect new posts from you and you can encourage interaction with them by asking questions and responding to their comments. It can also help to analyse which posts do particularly well, so you can replicate their success!

Tip 3: Use video to your advantage

In the last few years, video content has become more and more popular. It’s an incredibly effective way to connect with your audience as it allows them to see who you are, how you talk and what you do in your daily life. Create live Facebook videos, share Instagram Stories or make video blogs to develop an even stronger personal brand!

Tip 4: Share your story

A great way to reach new audiences and promote your amazing personal brand is to seek out opportunities to connect and share your story. Pitch yourself to be interviewed on podcasts, write guest posts for bloggers (or online platforms, such as The Daily Guru!), use well-researched hashtags on social media, collaborate with brands you love, or speak at events. Whenever you share your story with new audiences, be sure to invite them to join you on your active platforms and channels, and don’t forget to encourage them to subscribe to your newsletter!
