Are you ready to be motivated? Are you eager to create a business and brand of immense clarity?
Step 1. What’s At Your Core – Self Awareness and Discovery
This process will drive how you craft your brand. Each one of you have different values, needs, passions, mission, vision, strengths, attributes and goals.You will use many of these components to create your personal branding statement.
How we articulate and communicate these principles speaks volumes as to who you are and who you want to serve. The self awareness piece is an essential building block in the foundation of your brand.
Step 2. Identifying & Defining Your Ideal Client
How can you communicate your unique selling proposition if you don’t know who you are speaking to? Ideal Client work is essential for your communication and marketing strategy. And will save you thousands of dollars in marketing if you are communicating to the right people.
Step 3. Your Road Map. The Personal Brand Profile
Do people really understand what you do and how you can help them? Your personal brand statement should be punchy, memorable and solution oriented. It sums up your unique promise of value. The Personal Brand Profile sums up all the self discovery pieces and together with your ideal client work and goal work comprises a complete ‘road map’, giving your business clarity, purpose and meaning.
Step 4. Building Your Communication Strategy
Communication of your value proposition is of course essential. But how you communicate, which communication vehicles you choose, need to be on brand and support your goals and style. With your brand statement, you will know exactly who you are targeting and what value you bring to them and it makes the communication tools you choose so much clearer.
Step 5. Managing Your Brand Environment
Creating consistency across all social platforms may seem obvious but is a step often missed. The branding you have in the online sector needs to match the way you show up personally, so be consistent online and offline.
