  • Branding Yourself Online

    Posted on Timeless Kathy Sammons 16 comments

    Branding yourself online is one of the best ways to succeed in online sales.  We only need to look at the branding done by all of the product and service companies that we buy from today to see how important this is.  These companies have spent millions of dollars on finding the best way to brand their product so that people will relate to it, will want it, and will buy it.

    The branding done by multi million dollar companies… is not any different than what you need to do for yourself online.  To start this branding you need to have a vision.  What is it that you will be offering, what will set you apart?  With this vision then you can lay out your branding and marketing plan.

    There are some must have tools to ensure successful branding:

    1. A personal blog  It should read, YourName.com
    2. Social networking sites. Such as: Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, Direct Matches
    3. Article marketing
    4. Ezine advertsing
    5. PPC marketing
    6. SEO for you site
    7. Customizable websites and capture pages (not replicated sites)

    Another key to all of this is to have each of these tools working together.  It is much like a spider web where each one is tied to another, which is tied to another, and they are all surrounding that entity called you.  It is through all of these strings that you will be seen online as someone that can be trusted and is worth looking into.  Once that starts, the ball will continue to roll as long as you are an active participant.

    Online branding has become a catch phrase on the internet, but it should not be taken lightly.  This is how many people online have become successful.  One person that has done this very well is Mike Dillard.  He started working in the MLM industry like most of us, doing meetings, calling friends and family, etc.  Then he started online and learned what I am telling you.  He now has a data base of over 100,000 people that he markets to whenever he wants.

    This is what you have to do, you have to get out there and let people know who you are.  If you do not have your own material to market there is plenty out here.  Find what makes you click, but first find something that works.

    I hope this is helpful and you begin to see the power behind branding yourself online.

    Be positive – you are what you think, and you do have a choice!

      Hey Kathy,

      Branding is an absolute must if you want to be unique and separate yourself from your competition.

      So many people in the network marketing industry are just reps/distributors for company XYZ and wondering why they are not having the success they deserve. Great info.

      With the internet world turning more into the Vegasy, Times Square advertisements everywhere, branding and personal branding is becoming more and more of a necessity. Relationships are what closes sales and brings in new partners.

      Great Post.

      So true Kathy,

      Not only do you have to have:

      1. A personal blog It should read, YourName.com
      2. Social networking sites. Such as: Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, Direct Matches
      3. Article marketing
      4. Ezine advertsing
      5. PPC marketing
      6. SEO for you site
      7. Customizable websites and capture pages (not replicated sites)

      But as you say, they must be connected like a web to work correctly.

      By the way your system rocks!

      Thanks,
      ~Bert

      Hey Kathy,
      Great post and a much discussed topic. Branding is something that most new people to marketing, online or offline, don’t understand.

      A product is a product is a product. People buy from people they know. If you don’t establish that connection, the sale is probably gone.

      Great listing of how to get the process going. Yes, if we all follow Mr. Dillard’s example the world would be a much better place.

      Keep up the excellent work.

      To Your Continued Success,
      Bill
