reasons to have a personal brand

Want to build a personal brand but you’re unsure if it’s the right thing for you? Want to know why you should build one?

In this article, that’s exactly what you’re gonna learn.

But before we tackle the reasons why one should have a personal brand, let’s first discuss how to build a personal brand.

How To Build A Personal Brand

In order to build a personal brand, you must have 2 things:

  1. You must have a unique personality (I know you have one – you just have to let it out and be confident with it) and;
  2. You must have the ability to provide something valuable to your audience (what you do that you do extremely well).

That’s it, really.

However, there are things that you should and shouldn’t do so you can build your personal brand easily and quickly.

You can learn those things here.

Why You Should Build A Personal Brand

1) To Make Money        

When you have a strongly-built personal brand, it’s gonna be easier for you to make a lot of money than when you don’t.

There are a lot of things you can do to make money with a personal brand.

You can ask your followers for their emails (by providing value of course) and sell your own product, do affiliate marketing, or partner with other people to do business together.

It’s really that simple.

Imagine having 50,000 real followers.

If you those followers love you and are loyal to you, and you leverage it properly, having 1,000 people to buy your $10.00 product is already $10,000…

…and this could happen within a month!

Ans guess what?

Making money isn’t the only thing you can do with a personal brand. There are 4 more.

2) To Learn From People Who Know A Lot More Than You

It’s far easier to get an expert’s attention if you have even just a small following. People with good following talk.

Having a brand gives you credibility and allows you to get people on a phone call when you need it.

You can build relationships, exchange information and share ideas with people who are in the sphere as you.

This is how people create their network.

In just a few clicks, you can send anyone a message instantly through DMs.

If you have a large audience, it’ll be easier and faster for you to connect with people.

3) To Help Others Who Are Just Getting Started

Helping people is the main priority for building a personal brand. If you’re an expert at something, it would be selfish not to share your knowledge.

With a personal brand, you will literally be able to help THOUSANDS of people.

As the number of your reach and impression keeps increasing, the number of people you can help would also keep increasing.

Not only will you feel rewarded by helping people, but you will also reach your goals faster.

Remember, the law of reciprocity will also play a role here. The more people you help, the more you’ll also be helped (e.g. more opportunities)

4) To Gain More Confidence

Confidence is important when building your personal brand. It’s the key to building a solid reputation and helping people realize your credibility.

Coincidentally, starting a personal brand requires you to find yourself. Your real, authentic voice.

This process of developing your brand will help you develop yourself in ways you’ve never imagined.

It forces you to find your voice, to build a habit of giving value, and to become the unique person that you really are.

Most importantly? It forces you to be more confident.

Why does this happen?

When giving away value, your audience will start reacting to you positively. I mean, who doesn’t want to learn more things, right?

If your audience is interested in what you have to offer, and you built your brand the right way, they’re gonna like you. It’s impossible not to.

This helps you build your self-confidence and self-esteem in a meaningful way.

“What About The Haters?”

There will always be haters.

No matter how good you want to be, how much value you’re giving away or how you’re just trying to build a better environment, there’s always gonna be haters.

I don’t know where they come from why they waste their time hating on people who are just trying to provide value, it’s just how it is.

Heck, even Elon Musk, Warren Buffet and Jeff Bezos have haters even when they’re helping the world become a better place!

The best way to deal with them? Mute them. Block them.

You don’t have to let them live rent-free in your mind. Simply ignore them. As much as you want to help them, the people who don’t want to be helped can’t be helped.

5) More Opportunities

If you set up your personal brand right, you’ll be attracting people with relevant skills or the same wavelength as you.

Say you know a lot about dropshipping but not a lot about Facebook Ads but one of your followers does.

Out of nowhere, that person reaches out to you.

You guys talk.

Eventually, a partnership was made, and you guys ended up making more money. Sounds good, right?

This is the reason why building a personal brand is something people should do if they want to attract more opportunities.

The visibility you get out of it literally expands your opportunities and the possibilities of doing things you like are endless.
