Personal Branding for Women in the Modern Age

As social media continues to grow in its influence on business, a personal brand can make all the difference. Unfortunately, the image that the media portrays of a successful woman is one of what to wear and how to look. Women are constantly getting comments on their professional social media posts about looks, rather than relevant business inquiries. I’m here to tell you that a truly successful personal brand is all about being genuine and confident about who you are.


Just as with a large scale corporate brand, the important thing is consistency. A personal brand needs a brand promise. This brand promise encompases your individual goals and your aim in life. People want to feel a connection to your personal brand and nothing connects better than self confidence.


The key to a personal brand is 100% honesty. Before starting a personal brand it is necessary to answer three questions. Who is the person you aspire to be? What do you want out of life? And are you taking the steps to reach your goals? Once you can honestly answer these questions, there is nothing stopping you from building an excellent personal brand and influencing the change you want to see in the world. Social media longs for empowering female figures who know what they want out of life and are willing to go out and get it.


Can a Rebrand Solve Your Companies Challenges?

One key to a successful business is aligning your brand and business structure with your goals. Although branding plays a huge role in an organization, it is equally important that internal processes are streamlined and effective at providing a premium service to clientele. No matter how great a companies website may look, or how attractive their logo, no amount of branding will solve a broken business model.


Companies must be able to deliver on their brand promise in order to succeed. A great brand coupled with a lacking business model will set expectations high only to let down customers. Branding won’t matter if the brand promise is not delivered. Sometimes the issue lies deeper than a rebrand.


Branding can solve a company’s external issues, like public perception. A rebrand can bring in bring in quality clients that are willing to pay a premium for great services. Additionally, a great brand can put your company in the spotlight allowing for your brand promise to be fulfilled.

This relationship did not come about by accident. The automotive industry is a perfect example of how companies can create a deep personal relationship with their customers.

Car companies don’t just sell a product, they sell a lifestyle. Every automotive brand has a personality.
