Building a personal brand online can take quite sometime. You need to develop trust, build relationships and provide value daily to your customers and in turn, they start looking to you for advice and business information.
Over time, this starts to snowball and you become an ‘expert’. People think of you as their go to reference for issues online and take everything you say with high respect and regard.
Perfect situation right? Too bad this isn’t as easy as pressing a few buttons and instant reputation…It takes time!
Here’s three FREE things you can do everyday that will help your personal brand today and tomorrow (and a year from now)
1) Bookmark and visit 3-5 of your favorite blogs and not just look for new content by COMMENT on the posts. People will be attracted to folks that comment and are active daily. This shows people you are someone to pay attention to!
2) Visit forums like Net Marketing Forum daily and COMMENT! This should be a no brainer, but check out all the ‘bots’ from the search engines that are spidering this thing each and every day. That means, free potential traffic via the search engines that is laser targeted. Want more free traffic? Comment more and add more value to NMF!
3) Create content daily! And that doesn’t mean writing a blog post or doing a video on YouTube daily (but that helps LOL) It means commenting on Facebook posts, retweeting Tweets that interest you. Like things on Instagram…Be VISIBLE! And show others that you are an action taker.
These tasks don’t cost a penny but do require some elbow grease. Remember, the key is to do this daily and make it a part of your daily duties. We can stay ‘busy’ all day long but if you get into the habit of doing daily tasks like these, your personal brand will grow!
