Promoting Your Brand and Personal Branding For Success



Promoting Your Brand

Remember the importance of branding. If you haven't already initiated a brand for your company, now might be just the time. Use these simple techniques in the promotion of your special brand.

Make your brand as unique as possible. Catch the eye of the public by creating something different- something that people have not yet seen. Instead of doing what has already been done, go the opposite direction and be creative. Don't forget the legal dangers of copyright infringement related to borrowing or stealing from another firm's design.

Display stability. Take time in the development process to establish your brand and accomplish the look you really want. It's better to spend sufficient time in the beginning fine-tuning your design to the desired outcome, rather than to play with it after it's been revealed to the public. Changing your brand, and all that's involved with it, including colors, slogans, logos, and tag lines, doesn't support an image of reliability and long-lastingness

Stability should be maintained with branding. If you have integrated a brand into your company's marketing, then use it all over the place. It should appear on all of your marketing materials, business cards, web site, and printed items. The same is true for your packaging. Your brand should appear on all of your products. .

Give your brand away to the public with diverse promotional products. You can help your brand to saturate the consumer population by handing out precious, yet low-cost, items. Promotional products encourage possible customers to keep in mind your brand and your gift every time they are used. Consider useful devices such as letter openers, flashlights, first aid kits, and CD cases.

Brands are an extremely effective marketing tool. When working with your concept, consider the above to ensure the development of an effective brand.

Personal Branding For Success

One important part of branding is the image you yourself portray.  Developing a likeable personal brand is essential for succeeding. If you want to rise to the top of your particular arena, you need to first be able to sell yourself to your potential customers. Think about it.  Would you rather do business with a person who smiles and comes across as friendly or with one who snarls and ignores you?  The first impression a potential customer receives is from you.  Make it a good one. How can you accomplish this?

One: Become an expert source.  

Two: Become a great communicator. Research shows communications skill is the top determinant for upward social and professional mobility.  

Three: Draft a marketing plan for yourself annually, and review it quarterly. Include specific goals, strategies, action steps, and a timetable. 

Four: Develop an 'elevator speech." Within the time that it takes an elevator to travel one floor - about 60-seconds - be able to deliver a succinct description of what you do, how you do it differently, and the benefit it provides.  

Five: Build your Rolodex. Make new business contacts and stay in touch with them. Most people with powerful brands have powerful friends.

Six: Balance your individual style with clothing that will appeal to those you are trying to impress. 

Seven: Learn good business and social etiquette. Buy elegant personal stationery and send hand-written notes.  

Eight: Give something back. Giving your time, talent, and money to charitable causes is a brand-builder especially when it complements your brand strategy. Find a cause you are passionate about.   

Your personal brand is one of your greatest business assets. Put as much time and effort into it as you do in branding your product.  In the end, if you can't sell yourself, you'll find it nearly impossible to sell your product. brand success

Résister, changer et transformer la politique : pourquoi ?

La politique aurait dû incarner une certaine hauteur de pensée ET d'action. Nous invitons au changement, à la transformation politique, à la nouvelle gouvernance
Le terme politique aurait dû incarner une certaine hauteur de pensée et d’action. Mais le mot semble avoir perdu de sa noblesse. Les réalités de la « politique politicienne » tendent décourager la participation de plusieurs citoyens aux votes, notamment des jeunes. Pourtant, ils ont leur mot à dire et, à eux seuls, peuvent perturber les règles du jeu les plus savamment élaborées et pousser le pays à s’engager dans les transformations profondes qui sont requises. Beaucoup de gens critiquent cette politique politicienne » la considérant avec méfiance, désillusionnés par ses pratiques, par ces gens au goût immodéré du pouvoir, du verbiage conflictuel et des confrontations houleuses. Ce rejet a conduit au découragement et à l’impuissance de certains devant des gens qui pourtant sont assujettis à l’obligation de leur rendre com…
