These 4 elements are at the core of every successful personal brand. This sets a solid foundation that will ensure your message reaches the audience you were built to serve. It will also accelerate your reach and simultaneously grow your revenue.
Identify what problem you solve, solidify your target audience, and amplify your unique message.
Determine your primary, secondary, and ancillary business models and how you generate revenue now and in the future.
Reposition yourself in the market by updating your expert bio to align with your audience and expertise.
You have a message the world needs to hear. You have passion and a purpose, and you want to turn that into making an impact while making an income. But you don’t know how … yet.
The first foundational, and perhaps most difficult step is simply determining what your personal brand is all about. In other words, what is your undeniable uniqueness that makes you utterly uncopiable.
What do you do, in a way that only you possess, that no one else can do? That is where we start. That is the hard work that most people want to skip, leaving you wondering why your brand is not gaining traction.
The excuse to not work on you is real – especially when you feel like you’re going at it alone, with conflicting advice and when everything around you is vying for your attention.
Distraction is real! And, it has real consequences.
Why? Because this is the heavy lifting phase. This is where you set the trajectory of your personal brand and decide how you are going to convert your calling into making an impact and generating income. This is both brand strategy and business planning all in one comprehensive event. Determining the problem you solve, your unique offering to the world, your business model and your core target audience are just a few critical pieces we help you discover at our Finding Your Brand DNA live event.
And to help you get there, we have taken 20 years of trial-and-error experience, thousands of hours of researching, learning and interviewing today’s top thought leaders, hundreds of thousands of dollars in courses, coaching, consultants, agents, and masterminds as well as working with some of the top personal brands in the world and condensed everything we have both learned and done into 4 simple phases.
Develop the mission, purpose, and business plan for your personal brand, build your body of content, and learn how to master the art of the spoken word.
Create your digital infrastructure, learn how to write copy that converts, gain the knowledge, insights, tools, and templates for you to launch your website, social media content strategy, podcast, blog, funnels, courses and keynote speaking career.
Master online lead generation and offline sales conversations while simultaneously learning how to manage paid traffic, launch a bestselling book and become a service first sales machine.
Learn how to build a sales team, scale your business and become an influential leader that people want to follow.
Our members only live event series is comprised of 1 comprehensive curriculum with 4 compounding phases broken down into 12 original topics of unique and specific content all geared to help you grow your income, scale your business and impact millions of people. Finding Your Brand DNA is step one. This is the hard strategy work that you often want to skip but later realize is necessary for any real substance and growth. By taking the time, now, to get clear on what you stand for, who you want to serve, and how you want to build a business you will save you hundreds of hours of frustration and thousands of dollars on wasted resources.
Assessing your current brand and identifying strategic changes.
Determining your uniqueness – what sets you apart?
Solidifying your primary business model today and for the future.
Perfecting your avatar and core target audience.
Drafting an expert bio.
Developing the titles for your brand and core offerings.
Understanding the Reputation Formula.
Creating original content without it becoming all-consuming.
Starting the thought process of your funnels and how to engage and nurture customers.
In fact, most of our attendees start implementing the strategies on the very first day! We leverage large group teaching, small group sessions, 1:1 coaching and insightful interventions because we know that is what you need but never knew you wanted!
We are unique in that we are a personal branding firm, but we are even more unique in that are a business strategy firm as well.
You will leave with a strategy in place, a solid through line for your personal brand and an identified uniqueness that will stand out in a crowded marketplace. One of the most common things our clients tell us is that leave with clarity. But not the normal kind of “a ha” clarity that you may get from other events. This is a clarity that comes from looking deep within yourself and discovering your uniqueness and then learning how to take that uniqueness and make an exponential impact in the lives around you.
This is part teaching, part coaching and a lot of soul-searching work done with facilitated conversations, discussions and exercises specifically crafted to help you find that unique calling on your life and how to turn that passion into a business.
But in all fairness, most of those feelings come AFTER we have chosen to skip steps and get to the “fun” stuff. We like to blame the copywriter, designer, or developer but the truth is we hired someone to do work before we got clear on our own personal brand. We rushed to get a website launched but didn’t think through our core message. We wanted to launch a course but didn’t spend time evaluating what audience we really want to serve. We set some arbitrary deadline on making xxx dollars before we ever created a business plan. No wonder we are frustrated and disappointed. Unmet expectations are always the result of a lack of clarity.
You can continue down the path of spending money with a variety of vendors or attending conferences that may inspire you, but ultimately leave you empty handed. But why? You don’t have to. It’s worth the money to take a step back so you can take 10 steps forward. It’s worth the time to slow down so you can speed up. That is what we want to help you do. We’ve done it the hard way and the long way and the expensive way. We started Brand Builders Group so you don’t have to. There is a better way but that means you have to take a chance and invest in yourself, your personal brand and your future.
Is that you? Have you done that? Are you doing it right now?
As a team of people who are building their own personal brands, in addition to helping you build yours, we know the feeling of frustration that comes with money spent and time wasted. We have made the costly mistakes of rushing to get stuff done before we laid a solid foundation. We know the temptation to just “get out there” before we had a strategy in place. We have rushed, ignored our own advice, done things out of order and have regretted it every single time. Don’t make the same mistake.
There’s a better way to do this. The work on you do on the front end will save you thousands of dollars and countless hours of trying to figure out what to do, how to do it, when to do it and in what order to do it. Not to mention all the time you will save by not having to “redo” everything once you figure it all out.
With clarity comes confidence. With strategy comes intention. We help make sure you leave with all of these.
Give us 2-days and we will strike the balance of both branding and business while ensuring you leave with key parts of the work DONE.
That’s worth it. That’s long term. That’s personal branding that works.
This event was created for the mission driven messenger who wants to build a personal brand. Not sure if that is you. Not sure if this can help. Not sure you can really make money with a personal brand.
