Why personal branding is a crucial part of being successful in today's connected world

Why personal branding is a crucial part of being successful in today's connected world

Creating a strong personal brand for yourself establishes you as a strong professional leader and opens doors. 

Personal branding provides a clear focus for personal development while establishing yourself as a thought leader. It also works wonders for career success, allowing individuals to pursue whatever it is that they’re passionate about. 

Branding today is as much about consistently delivering on your promise as it is about differentiation. You have to position yourself in unique ways in order to stand out from others. You have to meet all of the subconscious expectations and go beyond the mundane to truly impress.

Everyone has that degree, but do they have a distinct personality? A unique personal and professional history that immediately stands out? A natural ability to enhance a company’s culture?

One of the most overlooked aspects of social business and social media is the power of the personal brand. Many marketers and business leaders wrongly assume that personal branding is only for those looking to be “famous” or become some type of online or social marketing “guru.”  This couldn’t be further from the truth.

The truth is that brands, corporations, organizations, businesses big and small are made up of human beings. Human beings just like me and you. Human beings that breathe, eat, sleep, think, cry, laugh and communicate with one another.

Empowering employees is key to success for brands of all sizes. Your employees are your greatest asset. They can be your most powerful brand advocates.

Personal Branding Is a Requirement, Not an Option In Today’s Socially Connected World

Your personal brand is you! Your personal brand includes everything you say, post, write, pin, photograph, beBee, Instagram, Facebook,  buzz, like, share, tweet, think, and do. Bottom line, your brand is you and every employee within your organization! Personal brands go with you no matter where you work, live, and play. Investing in personal branding is an investment in yourself.

Your personal brand is a vivid indication of the best you have to offer – the performance, contributions, and value your next employer can expect from you.

The brand you communicate marks your career reputation and is in some respects a promise. When you carry a personal brand, your unique promise of value precedes you and has far-reaching effects throughout your job search.

Personal/Career Branding is the great differentiator in job search.

Personal branding is about deciding to take an active role in the direction of your life. You benefit from creating a personal brand because it allows you to self-manage your life and stop depending on others to do it for you. Your personal brand helps you make the most of what you’ve got to offer.

What Makes You Unique, Makes You Successful
Personal Branding is about identifying and then communicating what makes you unique and relevant for your employers, so that you can reach your career goals. If you understand your strengths, skills, passions, and values, you can use this information to separate yourself from your competitors and really stand out.

Benefits from Personal Branding

1.- Personal branding is about expressing your authentic self by allowing you to be the person you are meant to be.
2.-  You develop confidence as you develop your personal brand. That confidence comes from looking at your strengths and knowing that you have many positive qualities to share.
3.-  Your target audience wants to know that you can do what you say you’re going to do. You build credibility not through your words but through your actions.
4.-  You need to specialize and have an area of expertise. When asked what you do best, your answer can’t be “everything.” No one knows what that means. To develop a specialty, the best place to start is with what you know.
5.-  Part of the branding process is becoming known for something. Your first step is to identify your best characteristics so that you know what to build on.
6.- Personal branding success requires communicating your message to the right people. And it requires communicating in a way that creates emotional connections with your target audience. You simply cannot build a solid brand without building relationships, which are based on emotional connections.
7.- Differentiation is crucial to your personal branding success.
8.- People genuinely want to help you. The problem is that if you are vague about what you need, no one is going to jump in and try to figure your life out for you.
9.-  A personal brand helps you avoid the need to reinvent yourself and the tools you use in your professional life.
