The ultimate guide to building a personal brand

Want to build trust and generate sales? It’s time to invest in your social media presence.

by Daniel Disney

As a CEO, up until now, you’ve only really had to worry about the business brand. You've hired marketing leaders and teams to help build the best company brand possible to ensure lead generation, sales, revenue and growth. However, times have changed.

Your personal brand is made up of your social media activity, reputation, knowledge and experience. One of the easiest ways I can describe a personal brand is to compare it to your diet. You’ve no doubt heard the saying, ‘you are what you eat’, which is used to highlight that if you constantly eat unhealthy food, then you’ll be unhealthy. In the world of social media, your personal brand is what you like, comment on, share and create.
