How to Promote Yourself, Start Getting Noticed And Build A Strong Personal Brand
Get over your impostor syndrome by knowing your strengths. Build success habits and do the work. These are just a few ways to promote yourself, start getting noticed and build a strong personal brand. In today’s TIPS, thought leadership coach Lauren Kress shares her expertise on personal branding.
The first step to promoting yourself is to get over your impostor syndrome. This is a huge hindrance towards achieving success or even just beginning the work. Believe that you have interesting things to say. Put yourself out into the world. Create a perspective shift around your worth. From the day you decide to start, behave like you are already who you want to be. People living in Australia–a country with such a carefree environment–are fortunate to have so many avenues to pursue their dreams.
Another step to promote yourself, start getting noticed and build a strong personal brand depends on your habits. You need to get into the rhythm of sharing thoughtful and original content. Instead of positioning others as thought leaders by resharing their posts, focus on what you can offer. To do so, develop your perspective. Know your angle. Understand the tools, strategies and techniques at your disposal. Then, be consistent with putting out what you have.
You can only create a strong personal brand by knowing your strengths. The journey you will embark on depends on your unique traits. Look back to the topics (art, music, robotics, etc.) and medium (podcasting, blogging, vlogging, etc.) that you naturally gravitate towards. Then, figure out a way to put together a series of content to share based on these strengths.
The final step to promoting yourself, getting noticed and building a strong personal brand is doing the work. Once you build success habits and know yourself better, you can then create a content bank. That will give you time and space to make any necessary changes or allow you to take a short break. However, keep in mind that there’s nothing wrong with starting small and slow. Don’t get scared by this and don’t get bored by your pace. Be consistent and focus your energy on the process, not the outcome.
Personal branding has a lot to do with introspection and patience. Hone those skills to promote yourself, start getting noticed and build a strong personal brand!
