13 Daily Activities That Will Double the Size of Your Personal Brand in 6 Months or Less






From QuickSprout, Niel Patel provides great recommendations on how to improve your personal brand by offering 13 specific things you can do.  Some of Neil's suggsetions are:

1. Write from the heart

One of the best things you can do to build your personal brand is to write daily/regular authentic blog posts where you talk about your life, your struggles, and your triumphs while offering real value to your audience.
People love to read the authentic stuff.
You can’t fake authenticity. It’s hard to open up, to be real, to feel raw, and to share things that are, well, heartfelt.
But what does this do for your personal brand and your audience?
It will show others you are a real person, just like them, and make you far more relatable. People like to know the person from whom they are buying, and doing this positions you as a “friendly expert.”

2. Take a picture doing something you love, and post it on social media

A picture is truly worth a thousand words. Posting regular pictures on social media of you partaking in a favorite activity will make you more relatable to everyone and will build special rapport with people who share your interest.
For example, gym pics, pics at the gun range (a highly polarizing activity that will likely generate some controversy, so be warned), in the kitchen, or at the movies are all great ways to seem more personable and start great conversations with your followers.
