Why Build a Personal Brand? With business and personal success being ever more competitive, your best way of elevating yourself as a leader in your business or career is to stand out as an authority, and have an elevated brand perception amongst your peers. Personal brand-building is especially important for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Your name, thought leadership, and unique talent are your greatest assets and will stay with you for the rest of your life, regardless of any firm, entity or larger organization that you may be associated with. Grow Your Network Expanding an effective network is very important to business success, and attracts like-minded people who will be the basis for creating new customers and personal success. Attract & Create New Opportunities Building a strong online presence & awareness will not only help people discover you, but some will bring relevant opportunities. Additionally, your personal brand demonstrates success something others will be looking to tap in to. Establish Credibility Your personal brand is your unique promise of unique value. As long as you add this value to others on a consistent basis, you are gaining brand trust and credibility. This trust is your greatest and cheapest promotional activity. Increase Your Influence As you build your personal brand, you will notice that you get a loyal following online. This following will put you in a position of influence, as others listen to your thought leadership, opinions and perspectives. Creating Work A compelling brand will ensure that you keep busy. You and your services will remain in demand, as long as you live up to your brand promises. This is important to entrepreneurs, and provides a buffer against market place and external macro- financial forces.

What is Thought Leadership? A Thought Leader is a person or firm that is not only recognized but also who profits from the recognition of authority. Great companies and individuals are recognized as the authorities in a specialized field, whose expertise is sought and often rewarded. Thought leaders are able to demonstrate value to potential customers, as opposed to a series of promises, special offers or relationship selling many individuals and businesses use as tactics in competitive markets today increasingly with diminishing success. Thought Leadership is about having the answers to the biggest questions on the minds of your buyers. It can also include your unique perspective and solutions on important topics, highly relevant to the important needs of your customers. The key is that the knowledge agenda is set by your audience. They determine what is important. Demonstrated thought leadership is important for individuals, entrepreneurs, and companies. This is because of the complexity and challenges of the decision-making process for solutions today (in both B2B & B2C environments) and the large number of considerations, people involved and risk factors. A great Thought Leadership brand differentiates itself from its competitors and allows a strong brand to be associated with the questions its buyers are asking.
