There are many ways to brand yourself. It can take time, effort, sweat, and an investment. But it can seriously pay off, and the payoff can come in many ways.
Inbound Marketing Pays Off in Many Ways
By working on a variety of personal branding strategies, you can lead potential customers to your website. This can be done in multiple ways, such as:
- via creating online profiles,
- generating quality online content related to your niche,
- creating informative articles and / or videos,
- through story-selling (like story telling but that indirectly sells, as you position yourself as an expert and the solution to fix the reader’s problem),
- via social marketing efforts.
- And more.
A diversified inbound marketing strategy can help in a variety of ways. It works multi-fold, as you can be found by those perusing various sites online where your content exists. And this action, the content you provide, results in information that will be fed into search engines related to your name and your industry. You can have a big impact on what comes up under Google searches for your name, your company, your brand.
Why should you try to influence these results? People seeking information about you can find content related to your expertise — this gives them evidence that you are an expert in your field and the content generated will speak to that.
Personal Branding – It’s Not Evergreen
Companies and entrepreneurs who go on a personal branding spree and then stop — they will soon lose out. It doesn’t take long for your efforts to slip off the first page(s) of the search engine results pages of the targeted words and phrases you are vying for. While things can stay online forever, the search engines like to index fresh content. A variety of actions can help you ensure that your personal branding efforts continually bear fruit. While it can seem labor intense to do this yourself while also running your business and following up on leads that are generated as a result of your branding efforts, there is help available. Personal branding strategists can help you create and execute ongoing efforts that help you continually shape your brand identity so that your customers and potential customers can see the value you and / or your company will bring.
