  • Branding Rule #1: Branding is More Important than Sales  
  • Sales is CONVINCING, OVERCOMING OBJECTIONS, AND GETTING A CHECK. You’re doing the talking. No body likes sales.   Marketing is GENERATING LEADS – GETS YOU IN FRONT OF PROSPECTS; STRATEGY, POSITIONING, PLANNING, ETC..   Branding is INFLUENCING, PRE-SELLING.  
  • Personal Branding appeals to a company’s desires and touches their emotions. Its first goal: to emotionally PREDISPOSE employers into entering a business relationship. Sales tries to cajole. THE BEST BRANDS DON’T TALK ABOUT THE PRODUCT. THEY BUILD PERSONALITY INTO THE PRODUCT.   Branding Comes First – We have moved from a selling world to a buying world!   The real fact is that nothing is sold until it is BRANDED. Today, we live in a skeptical culture – a culture that doesn’t want to be sold anything. When your branding is done correctly, the sale is made virtually without effort. Prospects arrive “pre-sold.”
  • BEING THE BEST IN THE MARKETPLACE DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING. IT’S THE PERCEPTION OF BEING THE BEST THAT MATTERS. . Branding Attempts To Reverse The Sales Process. (They come after you and arrive pre-sold)   We Loathe Sales People. We Are Afraid Of Being Sold Something.   Why are brands big today? LACK OF TIME ; TOO MANY CHOICES   But, We Love To Choose To Buy Or Hire Someone We Found.   The More Educated – The More Sales Resistant, but the Better Personal Branding works.     Your Challenge. How do I become the WHATEVER YOU ARE of choice for more people before they need one?   Harry Beckwith’s Book You, Inc . says “You are selling to the overwhelmed. Simplify and clarify. Make yourself clearer and people will think you are an expert.”

  •   Branding Rule #2: Visibility is More Important than Ability  
  • All Things Being Equal… The More Visible Job Applicant Wins   In branding, WHAT IS THE FACTOR that is more important than your services, your products, your resources, and even your skills . It’s your name. Your NAME brings you more prospects than your ability.   Examples: Ja Lo; Britany Spears; Madonna; Paris Hilton (Not The Most Beautiful, Best Singer, Best Actress)   How Many Of You Know Competitors Who Are Flakes But Are Succeeding.    
  • Visibility Builds Credibility Branding is all about VISIBILITY - and visibility builds credibility in the eyes of the prospect. If we see something all over town, we get the impression it must be good. – its presence attests to its success. The “Trick” - Who Knows You Is More Important Than Who You Know.   Lack Of Visibility Diminishes Your Credibility.     Macdonald’s – Good Food Or Best Food? We Seem Them Everywhere And Think They’re Good.

  • Branding Rule #3: What You See is What You Think You Get
  • Our Perceptions Define Our World Our perceptions DEFINE our choice of products and services and people. Perception Molds Everything, Drives Our World.   Recognition Recognition is the most important element in branding and is the critical key to rising above the marketing NOISE . Be Fun, unique, memorable, knowedgeable. Do something to differentiate yourself in EVERYTHING you do.

  • Logic Always Loses Out to Emotion Most small businesses and job applicant’s marketing attempts to win people over logically. But as logical as we like to believer we are, we make decisions EMOTIONALLY and justify them with logic.   Harry Beckwith’s Book You, Inc. says “People value – and pay more for- the way you make them feel. People buy feelings.”   Write down the EMOTIONAL REASON your customer should buy from you: Do The Branding/Position Statement Exercise With Each Person Introducing Themselves:   Name/Position   Services or Product   Benefit   Emotional Reason They Should Buy From You

  • Your Most Important Product In a world of Look-alike products and services, in which all competitors have equal access, what is your most important product? The answer: Your Personal BRAND.   Every sale s is based on you . Example: Colin Powel – Big impact. Who you are is judged each and every time – More important than what you’re saying – people are making emotional decisions about you.

  • “ The Power Of Personality.” Business Is About Relationships Think about the places where you do business or who you would hire: Your accountant, your mechanic, your personal trainer.

Quickly name 3 business people you trust: 1. 2. 3. Why do you trust them?

  • #1 – THIS IS THE INFORMATION AGE. A TON OF MONEY IS MADE EVERY DAY FROM EXCHANGING INFORMATION! Books are selling like mad. The web is an information vehicle, as is television, talk radio, and seminars. Electronic media (CD’s) as a means of disseminating information is the fastest growing information dissemination vehicle on the planet.   #2 – AUTHORS AND EDUCATORS ARE THE LAST RESPECTED EXPERTS! Every Presidential candidate in the U.S. has a book in print. Authors do research. Authors are smarter than the rest of us. Anybody who is anybody in this country is an author!   #3 – YOU KNOW SOMETHING THE REST OF US DON’T !!
