5 Tips For Personal Branding and Marketing

5 Tips For Personal Branding and Marketing

Personal Branding

Do you still battle with getting a laser targeted audience of prospects? You feel you have taken action exactly the way you were told to by your upline. However, you still are not seeing results from your hard work.

I know your pain! I experienced it also. And most marketers have been in the same situation.

There is a solution that can turn things around for you. Personal Branding can make a life-changing difference.

You probably have heard the word “branding” many times if you have been in the marketing industry for some time. It’s become one of the most common subjects in entrepreneurship — and for good reason.

Personal branding is the practice of people marketing themselves and their company as the brand. While previous self-help management techniques were about self-improvement, the personal branding concept suggests instead that success comes from self-packaging.

Think about some of the biggest brands’ public images. McDonald’s, for instance, has built a brand around fast-food convenience, variety of products, quality ingredients and kid-friendly enticing consumers who live a busy lifestyle.

You’ll see examples of those branding factors and everything that McDonald’s, from roadside signage and on television to its social media profiles.

That’s exactly the approach you need to take when creating a personal brand. You might not have roadside signage or run television commercials, but you have to think about how your personal brand is represented when you communicate with your audience online.

Are you getting a clearer picture of how Branding you can help you become a credible authority in your online Presence?

5 Tips to get started:

  • Marketing YOU rather than the company you sell products or services for is in your best interest. Establishing YOU as a Brand helps you become a credible authority. Do you have a vision of who YOU want to be?
  • You must have a daily presence to become an authority that people will follow and look forward to your posts, podcasts, videos, etc. Having a daily routine provides a leveraged connection with your followers.
  • Your biggest obstacle is mindset. Never be in the place where you are convinced you have made it. There is always more to come.
  • Next, celebrate your wins! You don’t have to be an expert, just be the Best YOU.
  • Personal Branding allows YOU to be unique and stand out by taking one idea take makes you different. Add some humor in your posts. Be clear and concise and keep it simple. You will surely dominate.

So how do you get started?

Check out this blog post to help you get started from scratch. By building your Personal Brand, your audience can get to know you, not the company you represent. Most people would rather buy from people that they know, like and trust.

It’s also important to share the benefits of your products or service without mentioning the company name. Plant a seed of curiosity in your prospects mind. This will likely have them reach out to you to find out what you have to offer. Bang, open door!

Six Strategies for Gaining Instagram Followers

Instagram

As Instagram continues its meteoric rise in both monthly user base and saturation metrics, it makes sense for businesses to get on board. Statistics show that engagement rate on Instagram is much higher than either Facebook or Twitter. Not making Instagram a part of your marketing campaign is a mistake your business cannot afford to make.

With that in mind, here are a few strategies on how to grow your Instagram following:

Post Daily

Get into a regular flow when posting to Instagram, but don’t inundate your followers with content. A few times a day is probably the ideal number. Quality content combined with consistency will do more to drive up your number of followers than flooding their feeds will.

Share on a regular basis so you can discover what works best for you and your business. Provide creative, engaging content, and you’ll be rewarded with not only more supporters, but followers that are interested in your content.

Promote User Content

A great way to promote user content is to take fantastic content from other creators, and put it on your Instagram account. Be sure to give credit to the original producer of the material, though. Show off the unique and uncommon stories your users have to tell, and when you do, make sure to add hashtags that point back to your business.

Photo Contest

Photo contests are a fun way to share your brand while gathering photos from followers under a theme. Be sure to get involved in the contest yourself while sharing it across multiple platforms. But don’t be in a hurry. Allow users time to hear about the contest and participate.

Make sure the rules are clear and concise, so you avoid confusion with the contest. If you’re unsure of how to proceed, find a business to partner up and double the audience.

Understand Hashtags

Hashtags are an essential part of Instagram, and using the right hashtag can make the difference between a post that falls flat and one that shoots to the top of your followers feeds.

To determine the appropriate hashtags to use, peruse the content of those similar to your own. You can search for and record hashtags that are relevant to your brand, then use them in your content to drive traffic to your business.

Filter Selection

Instagram filters are fun, but also a little confusing. Which ones should you use to drive views and engagement? Pay attention to the responses you receive depending on the filter you use. Some tend to lead to more views, while others may contribute to a higher number of comments. Play around with them and find the ones that work best for your business.

Engage

Really engage with your followers. A list of all the greatest tips and tricks will be helpful, but they’re never going to compete with rolling up your sleeves and getting dirty on the platform. Be intentional about leaving thoughtful, engaging comments, like photos that strike you as meaningful.

Find new people to follow on a regular basis, interact with them, and respond to their questions and comments. Doing so will result in natural and organic growth for your Instagram platform.

Gaining followings on other social media networks can feel like you’re beating your head against a wall, but that doesn’t have to be the case with Instagram. Create engaging, quality content and connect with your followers.

The way you engage with your followers will have a direct impact on how your account increases. If you’re willing to help others, word will spread, and growth will occur. For additional help, you can check out Insta Lead Magic, Take a Look Now.

This lead generation system has truly helped me grow my business. Honestly the best decision I ever made.

environment setup for success

Here’s a fast way you can start…

People offline, our friends and family, they don’t always understand what we do. They don’t always get our entrepreneurial drive. They’d assume we just give up and be “normal” just like them. But don’t to it!

Online, you CAN have a group of good souls that’ll have your back.

Also, changing your environment from time to time… Going to an event. Working from a swanky hotel for a day or two, whatever inspires you!

That can work wonders.

However, just know, whatever your day to day is right now, working from a coffee shop or in the corner of a spare bedroom, you can 100% do this.

Just need to apply the system. By taking daily “imperfect” action. Perfection doesn’t exist. It’s just another form of procrastination.

Just start. Go.

Your brain will figure it all out on the way. But it won’t know all the answers before you begin.

What’s cool?

Matt, who’s system I work with, started in the tiny corner of his spare bedroom. He was able to start from nothing and built a multi-million dollar business.

He’s passionate about growing his biz and supporting his partners and friends.

That’s why, as soon as you’ve signed up, you’re getting access to our online support group on Facebook.

[Video] Network Marketer VS Internet Marketer

Have you every wondered what is the difference between a Network Marketer vs Internet Marketer? I have been asked this question many times, so I wanted to give some clarity to these terms. There clearly are two different business models used to define each type of marketer. One big difference can be the compensation plans which may vary different.

 

Internet Marketing

An Internet Marketer’s success is based primarily on YOUR personal productivity, possibly with the help of outsourcing tasks or employing a team if your organization is large enough. Internet Marketing is online marketing (often used in offline settings as well, person to person) using websites, email, advertisements, videos, and blogs and Social media outlets. With the internet exploding today, Imagine being able to reach millions of potential customers in a day!

Each marketer has their own style, personality, passions and marketing strategies. Most have a main goal to help others solve a problem. Internet marketing is a developing field that keeps marketers on their feet and consumers looking for the best deals. Now that we do so much online, it’s very easy for marketers to learn not only what consumers want, but how and when they want it. Most training can be delivered digitally with instant access through the ease of the internet. Training and coaching can easily be delivered through webinars and Skype calls.

Network Marketing

Network Marketers work primarily with one, maybe more, network companies, promoting and selling the companies product line. The marketer may be provided with marketing materials, so guidance on how to sell their products and may be required to follow the marketing strategies defined by the company. The marketer must also possess skill-sets such as prospecting, 3 way calls, home meetings, one-on-one presentations, telephone follow up, closing and many other team building activities. Many of these products are great and solve problems for people, from weight loss, skin care, travel plans and so much more.

As a result of this brief overview, it is my opinion that Branding yourself as an expect in some of these marketing strategies is a sure road to success. By being a Branded authority comes respect and credibility from your followers. You are in control of your own production and profitability. There is so much more involved and can be discussed at another time. The options are limitless. Your hard work provides for you as long as you put into YOUR business what you expect to get out of it.

5 Ways to Establish YOU as an Authority in Your Field

When you’re first starting out, it can be hard to generate any buzz. Your internet marketing efforts may have little impact. One method of generating sales is to become a leader and Authority in your field. Quality Content

If people regularly visit your website to find information and assistance, they’ll be more likely to buy related products or services from your website.

So, if you want to maximize your sales potential, you should establish yourself as an authority in your field. But, this will require work. Here are 5 ways to get started.

Create High-Quality Informative Content

The best way to become considered an authority in your field is to actually be an authority in your field. You’re going need to release high-quality content on a regular basis. This means you need to know what you’re talking about. Quality content is key.

You should know as much as possible about your industry and the products or services that you’re trying to market. If you should constantly be learning and researching the latest news and breakthroughs in your field.

Take your knowledge and start creating informative content. You can adopt a simple system for generating high-quality content and making the best use of the content that you create.

First, you should write detailed blog posts. You can use excerpts of these posts for your social media posts. Once you have enough articles on a similar topic, you can compile them into an eBook for promotional material. You can also film video versions of your blog posts to release on YouTube.

This allows you to stretch the use of your content. Instead of simply writing a blog post, you’re using the same research for multiple forms of content.

Use Your Own Name as Your Brand

In order to be thought of as a trusted authority in your industry, people need to know who you are. This means using your own name as your brand. You can have a name for your internet marketing business, but you should focus your marketing on your individual brand.

When you write blog posts, guest posts, release videos, write eBooks, and distribute other content, you should use your own name, instead of your business name.

Start Writing Guest Blog Posts

Once you get good at writing blog posts for your own site, you should start writing guest posts. When people start recognizing your name across multiple websites, they’ll start seeing you as someone that knows their field.

When you visit popular news sites and blogs related to your industry, you should find out if they accept guest posts. This information will typically be found near the footer, the end of blog posts, or in the about or contact section.

Take Part in Interviews or Podcasts

Any time that you have the opportunity to share your opinion on a topic, you should volunteer. This includes interviews and podcasts. Both are great opportunities for getting your name out there and reaching a larger audience.

These two options may take a while to achieve. Before you can establish a name for yourself, you may not get very many invitations to be interviewed.

Become Active in Online Communities and Forums

A final method for becoming a trusted authority in your field is to become active in online communities and forums. In these forums, people regularly post questions and need help. If you monitor these forums and are quick to respond, you’ll become known for providing solid advice.

Combining these steps will help you become an authority in your industry. It will take hard work and commitment. But, the reward is great. You’ll be able to reach greater success if people turn to you for answers.

Use these suggestions to become a leader in your field. Once you implement these steps, check out a complete system for generating conversion-ready internet marketing leads. Click here to learn more about my done-for-you system.

Attention Frustrated Network Marketers

Are you a frustrated Network Marketer? Are you struggling with getting leads, signing up new reps and just notNetwork Marketer getting anywhere? Is your sponsor not available to provide you with help? Does your company offer training to show you the way?

If you are feeling this way and ready to quit, this blog is for you. Believe me many new Network Marketers have felt the very same emotions you are feeling. You see the scoreboard of new top level people moving up the ranks and you just don’t see how they are getting it done. You’ve worked hard and probably even have a passion for the products you are promoting and you still are stuck.

So let’s just think about this! You are working hard, doing everything they have told you to do. Holding home presentations, handing out flyers, talking to every person they see daily. Then Everyday you hear about so and so signed up X number of reps. Others are winning cars, trips, cash prizes, on and on. What’s up?

No need to keep beating yourself up about it. All network marketers have been there. Many have even failed in a number of companies, until they found the right formula and the way to market. Most network marketers just don’t know how to market or even have experience in sales. So don’t throw in the towel just yet.

If you are absolutely serious about creating true time and financial freedom for you and your family, the concept you are about to discover will be life-changing. Consider Branding YOU! Honestly, think about it, your hard work is selling products for a company and in return you earn a small commission. In time, if you are able to sign up 50, 75, 100 reps and they work hard you could climb to the top ranks. By building your own brand, YOU become a credible authority that people want to follow and in turn will buy from you. Learning the right way to market is key to being successful.

So how do you Brand yourself? The challenge will be to find a proven MARKETING METHOD out of the myriad of options available that makes the best sense for you – based on the time you have available, your skill level and budget. So consider building a business rather than a downline.

Selecting a Marketing Method can easily be done using a Marketing Platform System, where you have the option and tools to set up what strategy works best for you. Some of the strategies include a website, blog site, and social media outlets. So you are already thinking, I don’t know how to put all that together. I have little to none technical experience at all. No need to worry about that, there are tons of free training and webinars that walk you through step by step how to get started.
