This down time between Christmas and the first week of the New Year is a perfect opportunity to give your personal branding a lift and start the New Year with a fresh image.
Here are eight ways you can use free templates and other inexpensive tools available on the web to give your business or personal brand a lift.
1. Reinvent your name for the new year.
Is your business name unique–or is it lost in the crowd? Consider finding a new name for your business and a unique URL — an identifier that people type into the browser to find your website. Do a little research on Go Daddy or directly from WordPress, and see if your business name (or your personal name, or the name of your book) is available. If your name is generic, hard to remember or hard to spell, change it today before you start…
I am a storyteller.
I am a bridge between the worlds of high tech and high touch.
The main communities I build are between thought leaders in Technology, Entertainment and Sustainability. (Kind of like a TED conference.)
These are the early adopters, risk takers and super connected connecters who can set your ideas on fire!
As a veteran Silicon Valley tech PR executive and product launch visibility expert, I have launched more than 30 paradigm-shifting products and consumer technology companies in my career -- products that changed your life and are used by tens of millions of consumers.
I was on the teams that introduced major innovations we now take for granted -- like email, video editing, ink jet printers and mobile devices.
I've promoted products that reached 5 million to 40 million customers -- paying customers, not eyeballs. We did this almost 100% with free PR and social media -- not paid advertising.
Increasingly all business must be social, sustainable, sharable and conscious.
And I believe social media is the catalyst of this conscious convergence and shift.
I've learned that it's not just about "content" or "engagement" -- it's about creating authentic communities around an event that share your news and spread the word for you.
I combine social media with press relations, speaking engagements, events, social ads, email lists and street teams to generate waves of awareness that catapult your launch and sustain it.
Move forward, into the future. I can help you make a Visibility Shift.
