Watch the YouTube video below from February 21 which was a Facebook Live video.

It is always about your personal brand. If you are trying to be a successful entrepreneur and have a small or medium sized business, it is important to get your brand out there to people who may be in your audience or even better, your customers and clients. Branding is easy, but also takes a lot of work. Through social media, you can really get your unique brand message out to people on Facebook, Twitter, and even your personal Pinterest page just by branding yourself by uploading photos of you and your business, customers, products or your team performing your service.

In this video, I teach people my methods for using social media and blogging to enhance and market your brand. It has been am amazing marketing world for me these past 3 months after consulting for Madison Square Garden and working with a team of talented web developers on the Radio City Rockettes website. Now, since then, I have been designing and analyzing 12 websites and that has been since the middle of December. What about public speaking?

Public speaking is important to get your brand out there and I will be adding a video on that as well. Check out this podcast series to see my videos on public speaking at the United Nations in New York City, Cincinnati and other venues. I usually speak about web development and internet marketing, because that is not only my expertise but is also my passion. I love helping businesses make money online through social media, re-designed and engaging websites, and setting them up with their own podcast series.

I find that branding, whether for personal or business takes work, a LOT of work, but the outcome and payoff are worth it. I realize that we do not have a lot of time to blog, podcast, or perform marketing, but it is important. If you do not have the time, find someone who knows what they are doing and who not only has the time but can also make the promise to get it done quickly. Let’s face it. We all compete with other experts who do what we do, so it is important to constantly get out there quickly and effortlessly. A virtual assistant who is strong in internet marketing can do the job. Attend networking meetings. Keep blogging. Keep adding videos on YouTube. Social media marketing is rewarding, but it also takes a HUGE commitment once you start. Once you develop an audience, there is no turning back or quitting, because once they are aware of you and your business as well as your personal brand, you need to keep that brand alive and well.
