1. Personal Branding Model: the latest Senate Okmin. Welcome to my course, and personal branding within this lesson will speak about so called Burson Branding Morning . That's the important things that give the clarity and focus off development off your personal brand. Actually, that your answers off four main questions. The first question is, why? Why would he like to develop your personal brand here? We should start with a definition. What is personal branding and what is personal? Brand in my position, Russell brand. He's the set of expectations that your target audience have about you. And if we look on their definition, we see that there are two main parameters off your personal brand. The 1st 1 is the level of expectations. Is it low or high? And second, he's How many people knows you, your coverage and by personal branding you can directly influence on that too. Pretty serious, actually held of that, you could get other benefits. For example, if the expectation about use higher you can have the highest salary or the higher price for your services beef. More people knows you could have hook lines here. Ask why Why do you want to develop your personal brand? What you would like to have out of that to get new audience, to increase the sale of the cost, the price of your services on something else. Secondly, what what do you would like to tell to your audience? Usually that's two main things. The first thing is that your topic is important for them, for example, that, uh, you speak about personal branding that first name brand can help to achieve personal goals . The second thing is that you are the right guy that writes specially Smithfield. Next question is for whom? Who is your target audience? And here it's important to be very specific. So you should take session audience where you can have at least coverage 40% so that 40% of the audience well, no, you you can choose several audience but the extremist Pacific. And the last question is how later on we'll speak in more details about all the tools and instruments here, just the brief ideas by which instruments you would like to give this information to this audience. So your task for today he's too. Make your nonsense to that questions to create your personal branding model. If you have any questions on string to head questions. Feel free. Tried me how they're happy to help you. And also, you can write me your results and get my personal feedback to that. For now. Thanks for your attention and see you on the next lesson. Bye for now. 2. What’s your primarily about?: Oh, this is slower, McGleish. And welcome to the second lesson off our course on personal brand within this lesson will cover very important topic. What's you primarily about? What's the main thing about you? Because when we speak about birth mom branding, it's important to understand that it's oh, within braves off your wooden's. Um, there could be on Lee one main association with you. And to have the strong brand, it's very important to choose the one. I think that will be, uh, above everything on the top off your pyramid. Of course, I know that you have many skills that you have a lot of competence, but choose something that's will be the 1st 1 to do that. I recommended to the following thing make such a table right down your core achievements and write down the areas off expert guys that causes that achievements. And next, I don't show you some examples how, uh, how you can use that. Uh, for example, you could have some achievements in the sphere of business. You increase the revenue off your company. And for that, he used yet expert ties. Een making marketing research in building promotion ceased him I mean, personal branding, stardom, development. Probably like that. Uh, we have some more achievement, more years of expert ties. And then you make the least off all your areas of expertise eyes, and then you delete it. What you don't think can be the important for you and juice something. For example, uh, it could be personal branding, marketing, business development and PR. Then you make several variants off pyramid in the first of area, you put personal branding on the top This case your core think it's personal training and then use marketing to as the instrument of personal brain ing used visas developed as a tool on expert ties to make business. How about if you have a personal brand and use PR as the instrument to It's one of the, uh, instrument of personal branding development? Or they could be another parent. You can food on the top marketing. In this case, personal bringing would be just the instruments off marketing. You can use personal branding. Uh, that's a lot of the marketing tools for your company. Uh, you can use PRS and how the instrument you can see marketing as a competent off business. So use business development in marketing another area you could oppose put business development on the toe. In this case, marketing will be just one off Barth off business development. Uh, there could be another part, like management finals and so on. Man, that will be the question to have this confidence. Or you should develop that, then other tools like personal Brand NPR will be also the tools of marketing. So in the third area, he put business developed on the top, make different pyramids, try different variance and probably you find one with you. See, yes, that's that's about me. Another very good exercise that I recommend you to do. You can write the different variants off the following sentence. You some police, uh, there is nearly no target audience for home. I wouldn't be useful in. And then your area of exper ties, For example, um, in the world, there is nearly no great if interpreter for whom I wouldn't be useful in development off their personal brand or in universities. There is nearly no, uh, author off starter project for whom I wouldn't be useful in development off their business model or understanding called our market potential off their start up. So make the load of variants and also see the them and choose which one is better for you. It should be. There are enough for you to really become their number one So to the field where you can see that within the few years you can be number one in this field. And, uh, that should be also wide amount for you too much. You're ambitious for you to have might have hated to a drill deep into, uh, help develop in this field. You can also take into account that there several potential roles for the personal Brent, you can be a guru, a person from military, everything in this field and who's the words can be discussed. We could be an expert. I personally know that sealed quite well. Uh, heaven expert ties, but whose, um, can discuss everything. Uh, not the final words, but recommendations. Or it could be researcher. You can see that there is some field where you would like to develop. Uh, but you don't have enough confidence on that. You can take the role of researcher. You take that information in this field, you right in town in a better way. You until our this water. Uh, how did people say is about that? What experts and gurus says on that topic, and you develop your competence on that. That's also possible role. So choose to hunt this better suits you and finally, dusk for you. Choose your course here. May this exercise understand what's what's really this fear way. We like to develop your personal brand because, as I told you at the beginning, they could be also one concrete's fear where you should build your personal brand good news that you can change this fear. So if you try something, understand that's not for you. You can make the change. That's ah much better than standing Can thinking for a long time. Always fair to shoes? Yeah, that's extremely difficult task, especially for them who have a lot of competence in different spheres.

Branding is about being different. Of course, it's important not just to be different, but also to be valuable. But if we just valuable people you won't find us today will speak about potential differences. Branding is not about I'm being something that you don't be personal branding.
