How To Build Your Personal Freelance Brand & Become Well-Known

How To Build Freelance Personal Brand
We all have a clear image in our heads of what our freelance business is about – like what we stand for, the type of work we enjoy doing most, and what we’re striving to be well-known for.

But is this image clear for everyone else?

For many freelancers, a brand = having a logo. But that’s far from what’s actually needed.

Your brand isn’t your logo. As a self-employed freelancer, you are your brand.

The embodiment of your personal brand comes down to everything you do. It’s who you are as a person and what you choose to share with the world.

Here are several reasons why you might want to consider refining your freelance personal brand:

Your freelance personal branding is crucial and vital to your success, so it’s worth your time to consider refining and refocus how you’re being perceived by the world. [Read more…]
