Best Personal Branding Tips – Free Download

Personal Branding Tips eBookBack in early April, we asked you to share your best personal branding tips.  We got nearly 50 tips from readers.

The insight and innovative ideas you shared in those tips impressed us.

In fact, we thought the tips were so good, we compiled them into a downloadable document. That way, you can hang on to the document, post it on your own blog or website, print it out, or otherwise use it for inspiration about building a personal brand for you, as the business owner.

Feel free to share this PDF document, link to it or post it on your blog or website, print out copies and share it with your staff – the document is yours to use and share.

Congratulations and thanks to all who shared tips.  Once again, we learn from one other.

  3. Thank-you, I have already implemented some of the advice.

    What I struggle with is a catchy way to describe to people what I do…I visit businesses and explain their financial reports to them…I am basically wearing the hat of a specialist accountant…who can communicate so you understand it…any ideas?

  8. Great article, Thanks for the Knowledge!

  9. Wow this was great thanks!! I thought the idea of a cartoon persona was fun and ‘do what you say you will do’ top advice. I also think there was a very astute comment made that it isn’t always the way to go (on-line self branding) if that isn’t in line with your core values. Great stuff!!!!
