There are some business owners and emerging leaders that require a personal brand. It’s the anchor that is leveraged to give them the credible visibility to attract their target audience.
The advantages of an authentic, consistent and well-developed personal brand are numerous. From easier access to media interviews, attracting investors and/or ability to broadcast messages on social media platforms.
Creatives and Micro-Influencers create a personal brand organically, but have difficulty converting that to a profitable business. This is when a strategy is lacking.
For Micro-Influencers who are an advertising medium, they need to understand how to monetize (their blog, their instagram, etc.).
For creatives, the ability to share your work with others can only happen if you can continue to do so. You have to invest back into your art/talent with sales.
