Build A Personal Brand With A Blog
These days you are building a personal brand, whether you like it or not, so you have two choices.
- Passively let the internet gather random things about you,
- or take control of your personal brand, and build an intentional reputation and influence online.
To successfully build a purpose-driven, strong personal brand, it helps to publish a consistent stream of content. This content communicates your values, helps your audience solve their problems, and helps you gain massive exposure. You can control what you are known for online.
And the best way to do this is through your blog.
I have five ways blogging can help you grow your personal brand.
1. Show Your Expertise
Blogging allows you to showcase your expertise to the world. With each blog post, you can show that you know about your market and have unique solutions to offer your audience.
Your blog will become a trove of helpful information, and you’ll become the go-to person in your market.
2. Solve Problems
The best way to build a personal brand is to offer unique solutions to your audience’s problems. With each blog post, you can take a specific problem and offer your solution to it.
You can share tips that you’ve discovered work for you or your clients.
You can find your audience around the web and see what questions they’re asking and what problems they’re trying to solve.
Research in Facebook Groups, Forums, Quora.com, Reddit and through comments on social media, blogs and youtube videos.
Turn that into your list of wonderful ideas for your blog posts.
3. Get A Little Personal
Your blog offers a personal way to connect with your audience, and this is can be very important for branding. This is where you can tell your story.
Although you should focus mostly on your readers and helping them, you should take the opportunity to share personal stories and your unique angle on things.
This humanizes your brand and helps to create a strong bond with your readers.
4. Your Digital Home
Another advantage of having a blog is that you are the master of your domain.
Your website is 100% YOURS.
You won’t be removed or blocked for any crazy reasons, and you have complete control over your content and its distribution.
It’s a good idea to use popular social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube to gain more exposure, but your blog can be your home base because it belongs solely to you.
5. SEO Benefits
Lastly, your blog provides a chance for you to create and publish unique, consistent content.
And search engines LOVE fresh content and regularly updated websites, so blogging has tremendous SEO benefits.
Putting a blog on the back end of your site will help your site’s SEO and help your audience find you online.
How to Get Started with Your Blog
Sit down for a few minutes, jot down some blog post ideas, and then start writing. Once you get into a steady posting routine, you’ll start seeing more and more audience engagement, which will build your personal brand and showcase you as the go-to expert.
