The Brand Called YOU

by Peter Montoya

In an age of faceless corporations, free online advice, and companies that deliver rubber-stamped services, entrepreneurs who realize that they are the real commodity, not their products, will set themselves apart from the competition. Let Personal Branding expert Peter Montoya show you how to turn YOU into a “brand” in this brand-driven society and how to use your Personal Brand to generate better results, more clients, and greater profits.

In an era of faceless corporations and online advice, the best way an entrepreneur can succeed resides in his or her ability to market a strong Personal Brand. Individuals who market themselves as “product experts,” or whose services are not adequately unique or specialized, risk blending into the background or being replaced by larger competitors in their industry.

In the face of grim prospects and competition, some thoughtful entrepreneurs are taking a different approach — packaging themselves as the product through creative, aggressive marketing.

As opposed to “product-” or “fact-based” marketing, Personal Branding uses brochures, logos, direct mail, the Internet, public relations, and other channels, not merely the salespeople, to position entrepreneurs as the brand of choice.

Personal Branding promotes an identity of the individual that communicates on an entirely new level and gives consumers a reason to choose your products or services over those of your competitors.

What will your name attract?

“I’m a God-fearing guy. And the best advice I ever got came from the head of our [Mormon] church, Gordon B. Hinkley. It was when we were going public in 2001, and I was caught up in the money, power, and glory. He cut me right down to size. In a conference where he was speaking, he reminded me, ‘It’s all about your family, your relationships. You’ve got to balance that with your work.’

“So I set rules to be with my family and to keep everyone from encroaching on my time. I keep weekends as free as humanly possible. I try to make it home in time for nightly Scripture study and prayer as a family, and I try to make sure to take some good vacations when my kids are out of school. Those rules have had a positive effect on the business. I’ve seen so many people who have neglected their families. Now their kids are giving them trouble, so they’re distracted. If you have a closer family, you can be a lot more focused when you’re at work.”

How to Be a Successful Bloggerby Rajesh Setty

Many of my close friends are entering the blogging world. I am so happy
for them. I started blogging in Feb 2005 and I have learnt that we need
to do a few basic things (for starters) and I have put together a
starter checklist for new bloggers. I have used this list to help my
friends and now I thought I will make this public. This list is by no
means complete and all the items may not be relevant to everyone.

1. Register a domain name with your name and redirect to your blog.

My friend Munwar Shariff
wanted me to do this for a long time but I kept postponing it. Finally
when I got it done, it was amazing to find out how many people were
coming to the blog by typing in It costs probably $10 a year but it’s worth every penny.

Any entrepreneur’s goal is to no longer work for someone else, and to move forward with our own business ideas. When you work for someone else, you are exchanging time for dollars. Most of us aren’t fortunate enough to 100% completely work for ourselves, which is a sad deal. Our children grow so fast, and yet most of us are gone from the home from 7am until around 6pm, five days a week… giving time to your employer in exchange for a paycheck. This is a cycle that we need to break free from. How do we get out of this cycle? We ask ourselves better questions.

I first got online in 1996 at the University of Kansas Computer Center. Within one week I had built a website to promote my then stand-up comedy aspirations. I needed some promotion, so how can I make this happen? Wow, a website! So, I dabbled in all the development programs.

What else can I learn? How else can I promote myself?
