3 Key Lessons I Learned From a Personal Branding Coach
Today was a great day! Recently I have been struggling to understand the “Why?” and “How?” of my brand and I felt like I didn’t have all the answers I thought I should have. So I took action and had a meeting with a Personal Branding coach and have also been emailing back and forth with another brand that has been very successful. Once I was done talking with them and getting some advice, I understood that I was stressing out over nothing!
So, here are some of the tips & tricks I learned today from professionals!
What social media platform are you most active on?
Well, I post on Instagram just about everyday and connect with so many more bloggers and entrepreneurs all the time! I find that to be my strong suite in really building relationships and keeping everyone updating on whats new in my life and my blog!
Social media is the best way to meet people, so finding the right platform for you is based on how you like connecting with people. Through a tweet, a 24-hour story on Snapchat, Live videos, or YouTube videos. There are so many ways to connect with people nowadays, especially for us Millennials.
Who is your target audience?
This was so hard for me to really understand. Since I want to grow M&M Millennials to its fullest potential. I had to dig deep in what I possibly want to do in my future. So, a great Idea for mine was Millennial women that are solopreneurs in their first year of starting their business.
I narrowed down the big target audience of Millennials to the millennials I feel will benefit from my writing and also my future services
Lastly, how will you spread your brands name?
Again, social media is one of the biggest tools now that you can use for your business. Bring together your strongest social media platform and your target audience by constantly sharing and linking your website/services to one another.
I absolutely love talking to people with more experience. You get to hear about how that person that you may look up to succeeded! The more experienced people you talk to, you will understand that no ones story is the same. So, taking the tips that they give you and applying it to your own brand will help you understand what works and doesn’t work for your brand.
Love you, later.
Don’t be afraid to ask a professional for a little bit of guidance! When you feel like you don’t have the answers… they most likely do and will bring more knowledge to a subject you probably haven’t even figured out yet. Send an email to either meet face-to-face or connect through email. State the goals you’re working towards, who your target audience is, and what you need help with. Especially if they’re in your field of work, people love giving advice about their success!
