A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT BRANDING - I THINK!
NO NOT BRANDY - WHAT ARE YOU LOT LIKE..........BRANDING I SAID!!
How is anyone going to notice me - who am I - how am I going to stand out in the CROWD?
Hey you know me and you know my background is not in Marketing or Affiliate Marketing but I am enjoying picking up little tips as I learn, I did pick up some common sense over the years though. Did you hear the Phrase:
"IT TAKES A LIFETIME TO BUILD A GOOD REPUTATION AND IT CAN TAKE A SECOND TO - DESTROY IT"
THE ACTUAL QUOTE IS FROM A FAMILY MEMBER
"it takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently." Warren Buffet
Isn't the phrase so true. For some of us, the best time for building our reputation or planting the seed was 30 to 40 years ago but don't worry we can plant the new seeds starting from now! It's time to stand out in a world of equals. We are in the right place at Wealthy Affiliate!
SO WHAT AM I REALLY DOING AT WEALTHY AFFILIATE
Obviously I am here because I need and appreciate the schooling and learning is healthy and I want to begin to sew the seeds of entrepreneurship in my time to come.
We are all here for different things if the truth be known - For me, it started out as something different to what it feels like today - 4 MONTHS ON.
Today it is simply a place where I can be part of something, it is the best way I can see to get started in business and it's also the best place I can be to start learning to help people and I am allowed to do it over and over without asking OR expecting anything back.
It may not be apparent to outsiders but I do things from the heart and that's simply because I enjoy taking part and I simply want to help.
NO THAT'S NOT ME! The gray color around the chops are similar!
It is the fact that I care for others and the energy I portray that it is important to me and how my energy is perceived, my diligence and attention to detail are qualities that I want people to feel when they invest in my business.
Kyle has talked about simplicity numerous times through his training and there is nothing more simple than caring about someone and building trust and lasting relationships.
My relationships have always been built on trust and they have been for many years - it is my belief that trusting relationships in marketing will build on my reputation!
We are spoilt with social media these days and business that used to be agreed on a hand shake has taken to the digital media platforms for us to become profitable and favorable!
It gives me such pleasure to know that people are talking about me, it's important that they are talking about me when I am not around - We want to be noticed, we are not the same and we need to be different - BLANDNESS SUCKS!
"We are all building reputations based on our values and our principles, our level of care for others, our competences and our experiences."
"Your Reputation is your Good Name - You are selling yourself - Your experiences are Unique to you - You are Unique"
YOU ARE THE REAL EXPERT
We have chosen to be in the public eye and the choices we are making will begin to portray our personal Characters - who we really are - we will be defined and judged as we develop our businesses - THIS WILL BE OUR BRAND.
Finally, it is worth being aware of the fact that if people do not buy into YOU, then they will not buy into anything that stands behind you.
PEOPLE ARE BUYING PEOPLE - When we begin to learn from our experiences in everyday life and so much on the platform - OUR TRAINING GROUND - WEALTHY AFFILIATE IS OUR PLACE TO PRACTICE, the rewards to shall follow.
FINALLY, - Sell Yourself
REPUTATION MATTERS - FROM REPUTATION YOU WILL GAIN RESPECT - WHEN YOU GAIN RESPECT YOU WILL:
And of course there is Gratitude - Take Time
"Who are you grateful for in your life and what are the memories you are grateful for in your life and what are grateful for about yourself." Gratitude will lead to positivity!
