The Brand is an integrated marketing approach. To create a strong personal brand - and a strong business - you have to understand and apply these fundamental principles of marketing:
- Know your target customer: who they are, the problems they face, and what motivates them to buy.
- Identify your real competition, which is what differentiates your products or services that you offer to your competition.
- Be clear and specific as what you offer is different from the competition and why are most relevant.
- Create a marketing plan to communicate your brand message consistently to your potential customers.
- You do not need a great slogan, a logo or luxury clothes that match your marketing materials. Nor need a big budget. Just invest in creating your personal brand within your target market space or niche.
