You probably know already that the secret of a successful business is found in the brand. A well-known product which has become a brand is sold much easier and the marketing campaigns pay for themselves. But what should you do if your business is not commercializing a product and not even a set of services? Well if you are offering your personal services as an online freelancer, let’s say a ghost writer; you will need to find new strategies of promoting yourself and creating a personal brand, one that will be recognized by potential clients. The importance of a personal brand is huge, because it can really make the difference between a normal freelancer and a professional writer.
If you want to have a personal brand you should know that all it takes for creating one is a good marketing technique. Your services are the product that it’s offered by you on the market and normally it should have a price. Evaluate the quality of your services and set a price. After you have a price for your work, communicate it to all of your potential clients and everyone should know the exact amount of money you ask in exchange for your services.
When that problem is solved all you have to do is to make the clients pay you. You will have to convince them that your services are worth the price you are asking. Make sure that you have a great portfolio, one that has all of your best creations. A freelancer who has a personal brand will never apply for jobs, he will get offers.
But to have a successful personal brand, the most important thing is the exposure. Every person who knows about you and your offers could be a potential client, so make yourself known in your niche. You have lots of tools that could help you with that. Either if you start a blog about your freelancing career or a YouTube channel with tips and tricks for beginners in your domain of work, the exposure is always a good thing. Of course a freelancer who wants to have a personal brand should definitely have a site on which should be found his portfolio, testimonies and reviews from old clients and also the list of prices for different services that he can offer. If you don’t have a web site yet, it’s time for you to start working on it. You can always take online help from professionals who will help you build a portfolio that you will be proud to show to your potential clients.
With a good reputation in the online world you will be able to create a personal brand. Be careful in your career if you want to evolve and don’t make any compromises! A person who is known for the compromises he makes, will never be taken seriously by potential clients. So you will need to be very careful when you are starting to create your personal brand. Consistent efforts are must for building your own professional brand.
