Day after day while surfing the exchanges, I’m always amazed and sigh with disbelief. I wonder, what is it going to take, when will people learn?
Over the 12 months of my working on the Internet I have seen some huge changes and very few moving with those changes. I have read countless articles, have posted articles everywhere on the values and importance of branding yourself. It is now, more than ever, vital for your growth in Internet Marketing, to brand yourself first.
Branding yourself helps others get to know you and realize what a great person you are. It helps others to see you are here to assist them, not rip them off. It also shows you are some one who knows what they are doing and if you don’t know something you are prepared to do the research to find out.
My Problem Is
Now here’s my dilemma, branding yourself has been shouted everywhere and possibly even from the roof tops….. and yet what do I see…… I see loads and loads of advertising posted by who Knows,,,,I see the odd branded page well no there are several out there but not too many by comparison to the number of marketers, out in Internet Land.
However, most of the people that that use branding pages use the ones provided by the company they are promoting..
How does that make you different, you are just showing your name recommending that company. That is not making you unique, which in my opinion, what branding is all about. Branding is about making a statement. What sort of statement are you making when you use the same branding page as 50 others. To me it says my name is,,,,,,,,,RAY,,,,,,,,,, and I am the same as 50 other people trying to flog this off to you.
No! A real branding page is unique because you are unique, a real branding page makes a statement about you, Yes! I am…….RAY…….. and I am going places.
So for some fun, if I was to ask you, what you would have on you branding page or how would you set you own page up. How are you different…
Would you leave a response for me…. Because at the moment I am very discouraged with what I am seeing in the way of advertising and feel that some how things need to be revolutionized. That is a major change in our thinking is needed but also a follow up with action.
So lets see some action leave me a response tell me what would you do and how would you have your personal branding page put together.
At least we have started something, we have started thinking on the right track.
Branding yourself will bring big results and hopefully some will move from the thinking to taking action. Yes Branding yourself is a winner.
