Personal Branding: Managing Your Online Equity with Excellence

I’m no expert when it comes to such things are marketing and branding, as typically understood in industry standards, and I’ve never held a job where the core role and responsibility were those two things exclusively so if you’re looking for a textbook overview then you’ve come to the wrong place pal!

But, I do know a thing or two when it comes to personal branding online, or the art and science of managing your online equity in a way that’s comprehensive, accurate, fair and naturally a good representation of who you are and who you want to ultimately attract.

What you can expect in this series is a look at how I think globally about my online personal brand, the tools and techniques that I use to manage and control it, how I curate positive feedback and how I dismantle the negative, and how leverage it as a tool for conversion for my business and financial bottom line.
