Design your vision. Launching your personal brand is easy when you can visualize exactly what it is you want to create. You can design your vision in a variety of ways by thinking through various aspects. You must uncover your unique purpose that drives your passion. With purpose fueled by passion, you are able to imagine all the possibilities available to you and paint a clear picture in your mind of what your brand looks like, who it touches and what it communicates.Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Who is my audience?
- What do I want to share and when?
- What collateral materials must I create?
- How do I want to be seen by others?
- What is in my personal inventory?
Having a clear picture of what you want the final product to look like will guide you in the creation process. If you are not crystal clear on what you want, it will become very easy to get distracted because you are not sure of where you are going. Make sure that you are committed to your vision and ready to begin designing your blueprint to success.
Create a solid plan. Once you have a picture in your head of what you want to create, you can begin to put together a plan of execution. Think of your brand as a puzzle comprised of many pieces that need to fit together. You have your design, communications, marketing, messaging, aesthetics, etc. Create a spreadsheet and give yourself tasks to complete each day. Below is an example.
