Here are the 3 secrets of how YOU can start making a personal brand:

  • Be good at what you want to do which means you have to prove that whatever you do or make is worth the attention.
  • Start changing someone’s life – You can’t win alone. You need an audience to help you out. In order to achieve that goal, you have to start helping others with no strings attached.
  • Be social and helpful for everyone – Always be there to advise people if you can help them in fixing something.

 

 

It all begins with the publishing of quality content, giving away life-saving tips and sharing everything possible with your fans. Give them value. Share stories. Tell them solutions.

 

The following 6 steps will help you  build your personal brand as a blogger:

 

Step #1 – Secure your name and domain

  • You have to be prepared to be found.
  • In order to do that, you have to have a proper identity on the internet.
  • So, you need to use your original name or at least the same name everywhere including:
  • Website
  • Domain
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • LinkedIn
  • Pinterest
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • Emailing
  • If you’re new to blogging, website launching, and online business…
  • Make sure you register your domain with Namecheap or Godaddy.

 

Step #2  – Use the same name and picture across the social media

  • One of the perks of making a personal brand is that people know you from your name and recognize you from your face
  • You might observe that many of the top social media experts use the same name (spelling), display pictures, and covers on their social media networks.
  • There is a science behind this.
  • They believe in brand positioning.
  • Brand Positioning is a process of creating an image in the customers’ mind by showing them the same thing for a long time or over and over again.
  • People search on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other platforms to connect with friends and experts.

 

Step #3 – Create a certain type of content for a targeted audience

  • You have to be targeting a specific audience.
  • Targeting a specific audience helps you to become an authority (in that niche).
  • There are four elements you need to be focused on while targeting that specific audience:
  • Clarity of niche
  • You should be very clear about your niche in order to serve the right audience.
  • Setting up the targets
  • In order to develop a personal brand as a blogger, you have set your targets.
  • Define the content strategy
  • A ProBlogger knows what his/her targets are, what the readers want, and what he/she has to deliver.
  • Hangout with the relevant people
  • You have to meet with the like-minded people. Join meetups, conferences, and webinars.

 

Step #4 – Discuss and mention influencers in your content

  • You know blogging is more about giving than receiving.
  • You give knowledge, skills, and experience.
  • And get appreciation, following, and love.
  • These shout outs help you in building your relations with the influencers, and hence contribute to your personal brand.
  • Don’t just mention their names.
  • Instead, link to them.
  • Not only just does it help the readers, but it also gives (influencers) a hint that you linked them.
  • You can’t just make a website and sit tight waiting for clients to land on your site.
  • You have to be running, finding, building, and developing relationships.

 

Step #5 – Build a community of readers and responders

  • You need to develop a recognition.
  • One of the most important elements of making a successful personal brand is building a community.
  • A loyal followership can help you in building your personal brand faster.
  • The purpose is to develop an engaging echo-system with your followers and readers.

 

Step #6 – Use and share useful tools with your readers

  • When you need to grasp the audience and convert them to loyal followers, you have to empower them.
  • Help them succeed.
  • Change their lives.
  • Remember, content isn’t enough.
  • The content (means useful content) will only work if the readers understand it and digest it without leaving the blog.
  • The best way to do is create attractive, meaningful, and appealing content.
  • Offer useful tools and resources in your content.

      Thank you Kay! Yes consistent branding across all social media is so important 🙂 Appreciate the warm comment very much!

  4. Hey Joan,

    I love your tips. The one thing I did wrong was to use many different profile pics. I like to change them up too often but would forget to make them uniform across the board. As a matter of fact, I still don’t think they are the same. 🙂

    You’ve shared some truly great tips above and I know will be helpful to me in the future so I’m saving it. I think everyone, even the veteran bloggers, could use these tips.

    Thank for you for sharing these with us!

  5. Hi Joan,

    All great tips.

    I will admit though – I don’t use the same name and image for all of my social media networks, which I’m (kind of) rethinking.

    I guess for me, it’s a privacy thing. The more people in the social media, the less conspicuous I prefer to be.
    However, I do know that it’s a good idea to be consistent for people to get to recognize you.

    Other than that, I’d like to think I follow everything else.

    Excellent advice for any blogger, especially those who are new and in need of some guidance, so I will definitely share this.
    Thanks for the post 🙂

  7. Hey Joan, Another great post. I do agree with you that as a small blogger, we don’t have dollars to spend on our marketing. What counts is the relationship that we build with our readers and our true heart & feelings by which we try to connect with our readers. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  8. Fantastic tips as always Joan!! Building your brand with blogging is such a great way, and you can get more leads and customers with it, that are interested in what you have to offer. Thank you for sharing this!

  9. Such a helpful post. I need to make sure all my images are the same across my media. I thought they were, but then I see different ones pop-up, so I know I need to get those lined up. Thank you so much Joan for always sharing such great information!

    Great post! Blogging is so important in establishing online expert status. It is one of the best ways to show off your knowledge!

    • joanlivegreen@gmail.com says:

      Thank you Lisa! Yes blogging is one of the best ways , that I know of, to show off your knowledge, absolutely 🙂

  11. Thanks for sharing some awfully sound advice Joan!

    And thank goodness what you’re sharing is so non techie!LOL!

    I think it’s great, that a major part of our long term success, is directly tied
    to much and how committed we are to helping others!

    Because if we’re not currently experiencing the level of success we so desire,
    it’s probably because we haven’t or we aren’t serving enough others! Great advice and thanks so
    much for sharing it!
