  • People connect to people online, not brands. It is different than traditional media where people connect to brands.Implications for you are that you need your personal brand to be dimensional giving people lots of interesting reasons to connect. People may be drawn to you not just because of interior design, but because of something else you do like volunteering at the soup kitchen.Here you can see how different my business brand and personal brand are. You can also see the dimension in my personal brand around being a mom, community activist and leader, working with colleges and much more. There are several dimensions whereby people might interact with my brand outside of social media that might lead to doing business together. I’ve made many strong alliances that have led to business relationships by joining women business groups for one example.
