We as intelligent marketers, daily talk about branding and brand awareness but most of it is usually said in context of a company, a service/product or for a celebrity.
We never consider ourselves as brand worthy or as we simply put across as, “Why do I need a brand?”
Without indulging into the nuances of personal branding,we present you with few facts that may help you why you would want to consider on the need of branding yourself in current scenario of cut throat competion.
There is too much competition around – Whichever is your field of expertise, you certainly will find some or the other form of competition about which you might be aware or unaware of. To counter the same and present yourself as the top-notch resource, personal branding is a must.
Lost in the population – Every job board boasts not less than 2 crores of resumes today and each job posting, on an average, gets at least 200-250 applications. As per the data, you probably have a more experienced competition to beat. That is where, our services come in handy.
Everybody is everywhere - The accessibility to internet in the present times has benefitted a lot, but most of us are following the sheep trend by being active on every social media/networking site because everybody else we know is there. However, the knowledge of doing the correct thing is sometimes amiss.
The case of the missing Individual – Social profiles have just become just visiting cards and do not show the real person.
So the bottom line is to create
Your Personal Brand = Your Personality + Your Brand
You need to stand out of the crowd and most of the times sell yourself before you sell your idea, service or product to get clients, opportunities and jobs.
What we at Indi-Visual are offering a TWO HOUR FREE SESSION for anyone who is interested in understanding and using the concept of personal branding for themselves.
A question may naturally come to your mind, “Why are we doing this?” We are doing it because we believe in “Sharing is believing” which means we will only be able to make it happen if you believe in me and it will only benefit you if I believe in your brand. It is also a very integral aspect of our way of personal branding
This will also give us to be able to connect with a few of you through this exercise and eventually learn more things. So, we are just trying to follow the Rodinhoods way of sharing and gaining. :-)
As we talk about competition, the 10 Rodinhooders who give the best answers to the following questions will get those free sessions.
PS - Most importantly, what we are asking you is above money. It is something which you can’t earn again i.e. the time spent. So, please do this if you are serious about making your personal brand as it is one of the few things we are very sincere about. "So, please do this only if you are serious about making your personal brand as it is one of the few things we are very sincere about."
