Are you marketing a personal brand?

Rebecca Walsh 12.02.2015

In today’s world, whether it be in a professional or personal way - we all have to market our personal brand. For instance – in your personal life you don’t want to be seen as a not nice person or someone who takes people for granted.

You want to be seen to your friends and family and people you only meet once as a nice and good honest person. This is the same in the professional world. We want to be seen as honourable and good people and especially someone a company wants to hire!

Here are a few pointers on how you can market your personal brand:

  1. Know what you stand for: may sure you know where you want to pitch yourself - whether that is on social media or within the company you work in.
     
  2. Join Groups: make sure you get your name out there by going to breakfast mornings, lunches and any events that you want to promote yourself in.
     
  3. Write Blogs: write relevant blogs and share them on social media. This way your name will be out there.
     
  4. Be Proactive: make sure you self promote yourself as much as possible.

 

I hope these pointers help you in marketing yourself and promoting your personal brand!
