54 Examples of Personal Brand

 , May 17, 2022
Personal brand is the social status tied to the public image of a person. This is based on the observation that a person's name and image can be as recognizable and valuable as a brand name and brand image. Personal branding is a small scale industry with much media, publishing, coaching and personal consulting that advises how to improve your brand. This is focused on how you are perceived. This can be contrasted with personal development that is more concerned with the realities of your life. The following are common elements of a personal brand.

A personal brand is the combination of the recognition of your name and appearance and the image that this conjures up in people's mind.
Your personal brand exists whether you consciously engage in personal branding or not.
Many individuals with a strong / valuable personal brand have never engaged in "personal branding."
Personal branding approaches such as coming up with a "personal brand statement" may have no effect on the realities of your personal brand.

Personal Brand vs Reputation

A reputation is the set of positive and negative traits that people associate with you. Personal brand is reputation × visibility whereby it includes how many people recognize you, know you and are familiar with your reputation. For example, a quiet person who knows a handful of people may have a stellar reputation but wouldn't have much of a personal brand due to a lack of social visibility.
