In this week’s episode of “The Three Levels of Self-Awareness?”, I answer several questions about the effectiveness of personal marketing and the types of actions that we can take to get more in touch with who we are and what we want.
This is a great topic because it touches on a lot of things. Do you want to be more social, do you want to be more creative, do you want to be more of a team player, the list goes on. I want to discuss all of these topics in this episode’s discussion.
I’m not really the best at talking about personal marketing though. I just say things, so I’ve gotten a lot of flak about it. I can’t get better at it than the people who do it best.
I think I have to agree with this. I think we all need to be a little more aware of our own personal brand.
Its true, marketing yourself is hard. And, there are many things you can do to market yourself better. I can tell you from personal experience that being social is the most difficult part. Its a huge part of the reason I dont work on social media as much as I used to. I think the best way to market yourself, is to have a social media presence.
Being visible is the hardest part but also the easiest. Sure, you have to make yourself known in a certain way (i.e. through writing, creating, or simply making others aware of your existence). But, the best way to make yourself known is to show up. The best way to show up is to make a blog. The best way to make a blog is to use a blogging platform like WordPress, but you can also make it yourself.
I am a firm believer in personal marketing. I’ve been doing this for years now and it really has paid off for me. I have a blog, a YouTube channel, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account. I’ve tried to create a Pinterest account, but it’s kind of a crap shoot. I just haven’t had the time to make it happen yet.
Personal marketing is a great idea, but it’s still hard. You have to put some time and effort into it. I think it’s important to do it this year as well. I’ve made some great friends that way. I’ve also made some great enemies too. I’ve only made enemies in the past because of my blog. But this year I’m going to try to make friends.
People that dont have time to really spend time on their personal marketing will have to work a bit harder to improve their personal branding. I know Ive been on the fence about this because I dont have the time. But I try to make sure I spend a little time online every day. Ive been trying to work on my personal branding this year.
Good personal branding is a great way to get noticed by people. Making a name for yourself online is a great way to get some extra attention. You want people to notice you, and they want to see that you’re interesting. You can also try a little of this “old school” marketing thing, where you start with something that’s already been done before. Like, the first time you bought that new pair of jeans (because no one else was doing it).
