Let's face it. Long gone are the days when you could just run ads or make announcements about a new product or service. We live in a much different era.
These days, when promoting yourself, a personal approach is by far the best – especially in the digital world.
Glitzy advertising may still work sometimes in the offline world. But when people go online, they don't connect with logos, theme songs or mission statements.
They connect with people!
And when lots of people know who you are and what you stand for, you are in an incredible position to better your life and profit from your notoriety.
That's the essence of the brand called YOU!
Hi. I'm Bob Baker, and in 2001 I wrote a highly acclaimed book called Poor Richard's Branding Yourself Online – one of the first books about creating a personal brand identity on the Internet.
The book has been out of print for years. But recently I took the best timeless principles from it, updated them for the modern era, and released it as this online course.
It's like a crash course on “How to Use the Internet to Become a Celebrity or an Expert in Your Field." And you can consume the entire thing in about an hour or so.
Here's just some of what you'll find in the course:
- Four ways to build trust and credibility online
- The hidden aspect that people rarely think of when it comes to personal branding
- How to develop a fan-club mentality to grow your brand
- The importance of having a hook to hang your branding hat on
- How one man ditched his career as a lawyer to become an artist (but he did it in a very specific way)
- Branding lessons from Eric Clapton, Wayne Gretzky and Rush Limbaugh
- How to become your own “king of left-handed bowlers"
- Why Tim Ferris, Marie Forleo and Danielle LaPorte have strong personal brands
- How to make yourself the #1 expert in your field
- Why you need to create and use a BIS to cut through the clutter
- The three types of names you can use online
- How to describe who you are, what you do, and the unique way you do it in one simple sentence
- And the seven components of your Brand-Building Game Plan
