Savvy Secret Tip of the Week
Have you considered how your personal style and the way you publicly present yourself reflects on you professionally and on your business? This is an element of physical branding that is often not considered as comprehensively and strategically as it should be. How you brand yourself personally reinforces and enhances who you are professionally as well as what you are bringing to the marketplace. How are you setting yourself apart and making your presence memorable with relevance when you are in the company of others? The key word is relevance. If you are just trying to stand out without strategy and thought behind it, it will actually confuse instead of confirm. So give some real thought to how you and others associated with your company present themselves in the marketplace. Then embark on defining what it should look and feel like to others each and every time they encounter you or anyone else in your business.
