First Step! Build Your Personal Brand with a Blog

As my “Go-To-Super Geek” Douglas E. Welch said in our video cast Turn Your Passion into Your Personal Brand, “The first step to building your brand is to get a blog.” It’s the most immediate way to get started and a great way to develop your voice, your style, your web presence. Having a blog is key to brand building, but then you’ll want people to read it! New Media Marketing Expert Chris Brogan writes about how to distribute your blog content.

New Media Marketing Expert, Chris Brogan has this to say about getting your blog out there to the masses:

Distribution Points for Your Blog

“I currently share my blog in 3 main places: LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. In each case, they are shared differently.

In LinkedIn, I have the WordPress for LinkedIn connection, so that imports my blog in a simple, clean way into the regular fabric of LinkedIn. If I really need traction on a post, I might share it again in my network updates, but I try to use that very sparingly. LinkedIn doesn’t really like a lot of link promotion.” Read more of Chris Brogan’s blog on Distribution.

SizzleCaster Tip:  Start a blog. I use WordPress.com. Tumblr is another popular blog platform. And they’re free (WordPress.com is free, WordPress.org requires a web designer).
