Building Your Personal Brand

Anyone who knows me know that I am big into personal branding. Another person big into personal branding is Rebecca Bollwitt, also know as Rebecca will be giving a presentation on personal branding tomorrow at 7PM at the Granville Room – 957 Granville Street in downtown Vancouver. The event is free to attend but we do ask that RSVP to it.

Your blog is your personal brand, it’s your own corner of cyberspace with which you can express your thoughts, opinions, fears, hopes and dreams. It’s also an outlet for you to share what you are passionate about – making you an authority in your own right and this will ultimately help you build your audience. You don’t have to be an expert, you don’t have to know it all, but your voice is very personal and the way you express it will become your calling card – giving you your online reputation.

Rebecca will be addressing ‘blog branding’ questions like: How do you get an audience to begin with? How do you keep that audience? How to get noticed by mainstream media (should I even care about mainsteam media) and, why should I have a brand?

For those who can’t make the event, Raul at Hummingbird604 will be live blogging the session. I won’t be live blogging it but I may send a few tweets with some words of branding wisdom. I’ve written a few post on personal branding that you may want to check out.

See you at the Granville Room tomorrow!
