Your personal brand creates a unique public identity for yourself that communicates who you are, what you’re interested in, and why you’re passionate about it. Successful personal brands build a following because they are very clear and articulate about these three points.
Here are a few examples of individuals who have successfully created personal brands:
Chris Brogan – CEO of a business design company, author, and speaker.
Managing Director of Edelman Chicago and internationally recognized industry thought leader.
Redhead copywriter who curses like a sailor and writes about writing, business, marketing, and branding. Author of The Power of Unpopular.
Internet personality, tech journalist, Chief Geek for Pop17, and prankster.
