Is it you? Well, it might be…..

So here’s the thing.

It’s all about you.

When you are in business, you know how important a great brand is – when you start a business, you tend to spend ages thinking about how you want to position your brand – you commission a graphic designer to help you create imagery to promote your business, maybe commission a website, have banners created, flyers, promotional pens etc. Brilliant. You are focussing lots of energy and money on getting the physical representation of your brand exactly how you want it.

But after all that investment of time and money, energy & creativity – are you getting a great return on that?

Are new customers beating your door down every day?

Or are you just waiting for it all to happen?

Have you thought about the fact it might be you that’s the problem………………………

Physical representation of your brand is absolutely important when you are building and running a business, of course it is, but if your personal brand isn’t backing that up, your message is getting lost. Completely. You might have the most amazing website, the most fantastic roller banners & brilliantly engaging business cards (yes, really), but if YOU aren’t the real deal, the branding & the business don’t add up.

Personal branding is about standing out for the right reasons, for you, and for your business.

Personal branding is about what makes you, YOU!

Your personal brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room. It’s not about what you sell, or what you do, it’s about who you ARE.

So ask yourself this key question –

What is it that you do, that makes you, or your work stand out?

Are you making the right impact, for the right reasons, for YOUR business?

Your superpowers are the things you do better than anyone else.

KAPOW! can help you with that. Sometimes you need a little direction to be able to separate the wood from the trees and get a clear vision of what you want to achieve.

So ask yourself another question –

If you have happily thrown money at great physical representation of your business, isn’t it time you did the same for your personal representation? Can you afford not to?
