Book Yourself Solid Key #4: Produce A Powerful Personal Brand That Sets You Apart
Copyright 2005 Michael Port & Associates LLC
Would you rather be a big fish in a little pond or a little fish in a big pond? No matter which pond you want to swim in? you're still going to have to become known for one thing if you want to get your trunks wet! The most successful professionals master one domain (the little pond) and then they go on to tackle bigger things.
Some people fear niches because they think it will limit their success or potential. That could not be farther from the truth. If you want to create a thriving business you must develop a personal brand that highlights two things:
1. Your "WHO and DO WHAT" statement
2. Your "call to action"
This dual purpose message communicates your offerings on two distinct and essential levels. Your "WHO and DO WHAT" statement tells people who you help and what you help them do. Mine is "I help service professionals book themselves solid." Your "call to action" connects you to the people you're meant to reach. It's the reason you do what you do ? your purpose. I'm the "guy to call when you're tired of thinking small."
So first off, tell potential clients who else you've helped in similar situations and how you did it. Remember you aren't the only one who can help them. Your competition may have a similar (or even the same) "WHO and DO WHAT" statement. Clients decide to hire you once they understand your "WHO and DO WHAT" statement and emotionally connect with your "call to action."
What is your "WHO and DO WHAT" statement? ________________________________________________
What is your "call to action"?
Find your niche and create a personal branding message that tells everyone what you can do to help them ("WHO and DO WHAT") and what it's like to be around you ("call to action"). Then go bravely forward? splish, splash and boldly express what you are known for!
Stayed tuned for Key #5

Internet Consultants for Online Sales
Beware of Internet Consultants, as many of them have never been able to promote anything of their own, yet are in a haste to charge you for their experience and marketing savvy. Many have never made any money on this Internet, sold anything or consulted with any successful online sales companies. In fact most often these folks hold themselves out to be experts and consultants yet have no real experience at all. The Former President and Founder of Wendy's Hamburger, Dave Thomas, when listening to those trying to give him advice would often ask, how much money do you have? Often finding that those wishing to give him advice had little if any money, he would think to himself; "why should I listen to you?" Indeed this is a good question.
