Do you hear an expert in your industry being interviewed on the radio? Maybe you open a magazine and see their face or words about what is hot in your industry?
Do you see them creating content online and getting loads of comments and interaction?
Do you see them getting chosen to talk at events or to promote products?
Do you ever stop and think - why them? And more importantly, why not me?
This is how I felt 6 years ago! I remember opening Marie Claire where a competitor had written something about vintage for them, and I felt - why them? Why not me?
So I did something about it. I positioned myself as an industry expert through developing a strong brand story, creating the right content, seeking out opportunities, pitching myself to magazines and more. And 6 years on I can honestly say it has been worth it. I love what I do and more importantly I am so happy to get the exciting opportunities because I focused those years ago on brand "me". This year, in the last three weeks alone I have been flown to Dublin on all expenses paid trip to an exclusive Facebook event, been interviewed for a Channel 4 pilot TV show, been interviewed for Ideal Home Magazine, been asked to promote an international brand and written my latest article for Take A Break Magazine. And I have got my clients into 10 magazines!
Want some of this for your brand and more importantly, for you?
The great news is that I am launching a 6 months mastermind called Brand YOU in a few weeks time teaching you, inspiring you, coaching you to get your face out there, to be the face of your brand, position yourself as an expert and how to make money from these opportunities.
If you want to find out how I can help you get this, leave a comment or PM me. It is also worth saying that anyone that joins the mastermind gets access to the Indie Practice HUB (regular PR leads and my support on hand) and the Indie Practice Club (weekly marketing training) so it is a great opportunity.
Let's make 2019 the year that YOU get chosen for those fabulous opportunities and it's YOUR name you see in print!
Looking good #bristol#sunshine
Discovered @evernote this week! Think this is going to be a family life/ game changer! Out with the @gruffalo kitchen Calendar and in with real time shared diary for arranging life passes, work early/late starts, who has the car and childcare.
Sadly @workingmumma2018 and I quite enjoy a list to get stuff done. This beaut will ensure tasks are shared and we are not both trying to renew passports, rearrange appointments and both get cash out to pay someone or other #sad but any #small-thing that makes life a little easier is alright by me
🦄🦋🚀✈️I've always been a dreamer. The difference between before and now is that now I believe they are possible, achievable, tangible for me. Now I not only think about them, but I feel them... and it took 43 years!
Let's see how long it will take to actually touch them✨✨ 🌈🌈💦💦⛅️⛅️🌻🌻🌷🌷🌺🌺🌸🌸☘️☘️🌛🌜🌞🌝🌍🌎
