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!

Become an Instant Authority!

So now that you have your Personal Brand all set up you are ready to become an Instant Authority! By using the Instant Authority Method.

This SIMPLE method will make you become an expert in the eyes of your prospects.

As I mentioned above, Education (training) is a key resource to your business success. This activity needs to be a part of any marketers daily routine. Whether it is, webinars, live events, reading relevant marketing materials or training videos.5 Resources to Build Your Business

The advantage to Step-by-Step videos is you have the option to pause the video, perform an action and then resume the process you are learning. I have found these types of videos invaluable when it comes to setting up a new process.

Let me ask you a simple question! Have you ever heard the saying, “What you don’t know, you don’t know“? Think about it. If you never learned something, you are not aware of it, right?

Let’s face it, learning online through a step-by-step video allows you to work at your own pace, in your own time.

Here is a small sample of training videos that can help you master a strategy to use in your business:

And on and on, there is ample online training available, but quality training is a must to make the best use of your time.

5) Prospecting and Recruiting Skills

Wow, Recruiting and Prospecting is a powerful topic. And skills can take time to become proficient. Through training and consistent trial and error many top earners have found that sweet spot that worked for them.  The plain truth is, it takes time, dedication and developing your own style.

Let’s not put the cart before the horse, cause truthly it all starts with establishing your laser targeted audience for your niche. It makes to sense to prospect someone that has no interest in what you have to offer. Why waste your time or their time. Attraction Marketing is a great strategy to get you started. The Benefit of Attraction Marketing is to ATTRACT customers to you vs. having to pitch, chase, and cold-call!

Prospecting is establishing relationships. People join people, not just an opportunity. The key is to follow up with your lead. Everyone wants to feel special so hearing from you personally can seal the deal. Sharing your story with prospects is a great way to establish a relationship that they may be able to relate to. 5 Resources to Build Your Business

There are many other strategies as well to attract and prospect your perfect audience. Be sure to  LEAD WITH VALUE – give THEM what THEY want! (and you will profit!). Learn more from this Prospecting Playbook.

Recruiting

So let’s talk recruiting! You have attracted interested prospects and built a relationship with them. Now they feel they know, like and trust you. You have been honest, shared your story and they know you are a real person. By asking them closed ended questions you are ready to introduce your offer. Closed ended questions simply require a Yes or No answer. Some examples may be:

  • Does this opportunity sound like it would help you reach the financial goals you mentioned?
  • Would you agree that this opportunity would allow you to no longer need to chase after friends and family and focus on leads that are interested in joining your business?
  • So do you think generating 8-10 laser targeted leads per day would help grow your business?

Using closed ended questions, of course you are looking for “Yes” answers. But should you hear a “No” that’s fine. Go back to revisit some of the communication you exchanged in establishing your relationship. Reiterate the pain or problem they shared with you. Listening closely is key.

Closing the Recruit

Now you are ready to set up the closing and help your new recruit join your business. Assuming you have received a “Yes” answer to your close ended questions move forward by saying:

“Great! So here’s what we are going to do. I’m going to send you a link for the system trial and together we’ll walk through the set up to get you up and running right away so you can start generating leads and making more money!”

Literally walk them through the set up rather than just sending them the link. This is a fool proof way to know they follow through, see the screens and understand the process. BOOM, you got a new customer.
