"The strength of building your personal brand strategically, lies in the fact that you start attracting the opportunities that align with your purpose and values." Shelley Tilbrook
This is not new for some industries. Politicians, Realestate Agents, entertainers have been doing this for decades. But now we are in a personal branding era, largely brought on by Covid-19 as more business is done online. Less face-to-face meetings to build trust means your digital footprint now has a larger baring on your ability to grow exponentially. People want to know the person behind the business and leaders need to be visible.
What are the benefits?
9 Advantages of a Personal Branding Website
A website provides far more flexibility than a LinkedIn or social media page so you can control the branding, content and experience.
It allows you to generate leads, bookings, order, sales and business right from the platform.
You own and control the platform so you can control the message. You don't need to worry about changes to algorithms reducing your traffic, articles going unseen or stagnant old information appearing. You can keep it fresh and relevant and your website can evolve as your career and business interests do.
Unless you have a very common name or one that matches an already famous person, who can reach the #1 ranking spot on google very fast.
You can track and retarget people who have visited your website with special offers.
If you already have a business website, you can strengthen the SEO for that website by providing links back to it (backlinks) and vice versa.
You can create a blog on your personal branding website to share your opinion and expertise for topics where you want to establish yourself as an authority and leader.
You can use the personal branding website to promote projects, launches or brands you are working with to help amplify the activity online.
You can share testimonials and case studies to strengthen your credibility and social proof of your results.
