We’ve all heard it again and again–your personal brand is more important now than ever, and oftentimes the key to your success. There are countless articles outlining why a personal brand is important and giving reasons as to why it will make you successful–but all of this seems a bit overwhelming.
You can start by deleting incriminating photos on Facebook or by vowing to post more often on Twitter, but neither of those seem like the best approach. Here at Silver Spur we wanted to find the best way to jump start our personal brands.
Remembering an important lesson from our Branding 101 classes, we decided that because branding is so visual, it would be best to start with an updated image. Now, don’t groan–headshots aren’t the boring school picture-type photos you remember! We have seen them get increasingly more creative, and they are really an opportunity for you to share who you are an what is important to you. Headshots can set the tone for building a career, updating a profile and yes, building a personal brand.
So one-by-one our team visited the wonderful Tommy Collier in his RiNo studio to update our headshots. We are pretty pleased with the results–but we will let the photos speak for themselves!
Now on to step #2 of updating our personal brands…what do you think should be next?
