Before I talk about my professional branding tools. What you need to understand about the topic of branding is this. Your brand is only as strong as your skill and ability to deliver your value with a strong impact that is life changing. It's going to come down to you meaning what you say and saying what you mean. Don't say you can do something. And don't say you offer something when you can't deliver. Cosmetic and graphical impressions are important. But not more important than your ability to deliver on what you promise.
You can look great professionally and cosmetically. But if you're copying, regurgitating and plagiarizing you will get caught it's only a matter of time. You can't steal from authentic people, make money off their value and not get caught. When it comes to lies and deception on the internet people always slip up and get caught and instantly regret it.
Branding is so important because you create an identity that no one else has. When you do it correctly no one will be able to steal from you. It has embedded into it your signature talents, skills and abilities that people know it's you. No brand starts out successful or on top. In order to have success and keep it you have to build and maintain the know, like, trust and credibility factors.
The only thing that your cosmetics should communicate to others is that you are real. And that you believe in what you are doing. It should also communicate that you take time and put thought into your brand. Because ultimately you want people to view you as and authority that is not like any other in any space.
