Developing Your Brand.
In this book, I’m assuming that you have established a personal brand and found your blogging voice. Don’t worry if you’re not sure or if you haven’t, I have a handy checklist below.
If you have and are comfortable you can skip this chapter and head straight to chapter 2 but are you willing to pass up what may be a golden nugget of wisdom?
Yes, we have just come from working on being a human on the internet but branding has its place. It’s what allows people to know that it’s you without having to look at your logo or avatar. Your branding is usually a reflection of who you are unless you are establishing an independent brand.
If you are a writer or an independent creator then often it becomes too much to always have to switch between your own voice and that of your brand. A medium ground can be found and you don’t always have to put your whole self into it either. You will always be continually developing your brand and developing your boundaries. It’s good to grow, adapt and change as you get more and more comfortable being online.
If you are unsure if you have developed your brand then work your way through the checklist that follows. It’s not exhaustive but it will give you an idea of what you have and have not thought about.
All of the above plus a note on success and the responsibility of creating online.
"Overall, on the first read through I got a bit of information overload going and found it quite dense - you got A LOT into 60 pages! So much of what you said makes sense. I understand better now how to research my audience and tailor my posts/content to them and can already recognise some of the mistakes I've made in terms of how I've been speaking to my audience and how little I really knew about them until I looked at data readily available to me!"
