What the heck is personal branding? In today’s market, these two simple words seem to be everywhere. So let’s dive straight into it.
Personal branding is the means by which people remember you, but it is more than a trademark or logo. In essence it is how you present yourself online and offline to your potential clients. Your personal brand helps build your business, but it still revolves around you as an individual.
“According to a Nielsen Consumer Survey, only 33% of buyers trust messages from a brand, while 90% trust messages from an individual they know. That means that if you’re a business owner, you have a much better chance of winning people’s trust if you bond with them first as a human being and encourage your employees to do the same.” [thebalance.com]
