Creating A Personal Brand – How Influencer Marketing Can Change Your Life

Often influencer marketing involves creating a brand and then selling products through that brand. That brand will often be cold, detached, and alien to the users.

But have you considered that this brand does not have to be a bland corporate brand? It doesn’t need to be “faceless.” You do not need to have a fancy logo or to have some meaningless and hip name.

Consider making yourself the brand. This is what’s called “personal branding” and it is a fantastic strategy for anyone that is looking to promote a product online and that does not mind putting themselves out there.

What Is Personal Branding?

Personal branding means that you are turning yourself into the figurehead of your business in a very public manner. This can mean either that you are the business and you trade under your own name (it saves you money on trademarks at least!) or it could just mean that you are featured front and center on your website and social media.

A good example of this would be the Smart Passive Income Blog where anyone who reads the blog regularly will recognize Pat Flynn. Likewise, you have the Four Hour Blog where Tim Ferriss is front and center. These are examples of personal brands that have worked very well.

Advantages

One advantage of a personal brand is that it can make you famous. Sure, some people will see this more as a disadvantage but if you are the sort of person who likes the limelight it may well appeal.

Another advantage is that it lets people feel as though they know you and it gives your brand personality. This means that when you interact with someone on Twitter or Facebook, they will feel like they are talking to an actual human being rather than just being the recipient of market speech.

They thus become FAR more likely to buy from you in future.

With a personal brand you will also be able to aim to become an influencer. That means you can get paid by brands to create sponsored content. It is common for an influencer on Instagram to get paid $1,000 for every 200,000 followers they have. If you have 1M followers, you can get paid $5,000 for something that takes literally five minutes. That’s pretty good hourly rates!

It’s definitely worth considering and if you are interested, pay close attention to the big names to see how they are making it work for them!

    had spent for this information! Thank you!

    this put up higher! Come on over and talk over with my site .
    Thank you =)

  4. Hello there! Do you know if they make any
    plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m
    trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but
    I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share.
    Cheers!

  5. Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I
    could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  6. First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!

  7. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  8. Hey there! This post could not be written any better!

    Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  9. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website?
    My blog is in the very same niche as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from
    some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this alright with you. Thanks a lot!

  10. Fantastic post, very informative. I ponder why the
    opposite specialists of this sector do not realize
    this. You should proceed your writing. I am sure,
    you’ve a great readers’ base already!
