The No Bullshit Truth About Building a Brand...That Kicks Ass

Starting a business is like having a baby, without the cravings, hormones or dirty diapers, of course.

I mean, think about it…

You spend months planning for its arrival. You introduce it to the world with beaming joy. You spend sleepless nights tending to it, nurturing it, investing in it, and worrying about its future.

Unfortunately, just like a kid, unwavering love + sacrifice + dedication doesn’t automatically equal guaranteed greatness.

The first thing I want you to do is stop scouring for some risk free guarantee and start scouring within.

What are you scouring the depths of your soul for?

Steadfast clarity!

I’m willing to bet one of the reasons you've dismissed branding for as long as you have is because you saw it as an expense rather than a necessity.

You probably thought branding is about a logo or making shit pretty.

Don’t feel bad, I thought that for a loooong time too, and I hear it from other solos all the time.

Brace for a mind blow, because I’ve got some Earth shattering news for ya.

Branding is about CLARITY!

Clarity in understanding your purpose, your mission, your voice, your style, even your readers and clients. It’s a process of identifying the unique aspects of both you as an individual, and your business, and weaving those attributes together in a way that is consistently expressed in everything you do, say, and create.

This clarity is exactly what's on the agenda for my brand spaking new mini course, going down this Wednesday at 2PM pst {4PM cst, 5Pm est}.

In this mini course you're going to learn:

➽ The 4 types of branding riches that are in every badass brands treasure chest…and how YOU can get them!

➽ The 5 main phases of brand building, and what needs to be done during each phase.

➽ The 5 branding mistakes that WILL stunt your success trajectory IF you let them.

➽ PLUS, a free prezzie for live attendees and a no holds barred Q & A sesh

What do you say? Can I help you excavate your unwavering clarity?

Nab your seat to this happy hour and half of branding badassery here: http://thebrandedsolopreneur.com/building-a-brand/

Stand Out Online With Help From The Tools Social Royalty Use

Your success standing out online boils down to….a pause.

It’s about that moment when something catches someone’s attention. That ‘thing’ they stop long enough to take notice of. It’s about fostering intrigue and deeper exploration.

Finding ways to create that coveted pause should be your primary focus. It should be what drives everything you do, everything you create, and every resource you use as a brand. There are several ways to garner these much needed pauses.

The 4 most effective ways to garner a pause are:

➽ Visual content
➽ Brand recognition
➽ SEO
➽ Emailing marketing

Sooooo, the question you really need to ask is, ‘What resources will help me garner the most pauses?’ No one can answer that question better than the pros that have already mastered the art of standing out online.

I posed the question, ‘What’s your favorite free resource {tool, website, app, software, etc} that helps you stand out online…and what’s your favorite paid {less than $25} resource?’ to 35 of the leading pause makers I know, and compiled this post with what they had to say.

Here are 50 resources that will help you benefit from the power of a pause: http://thebrandedsolopreneur.com/how-to-stand-out-online/
