Focus. The more you focus; the more Brand YOU comes into focus.
Focus on the WHO. Focus on the WHAT. Focus on the WHERE.
The smaller your focus; greater is the probability of your success. Its indeed ironical that one must narrow one’s focus to amplify ones success. But true it is. Like they say: You cannot be everything to every one.
Like I say: Be the jack of all trades, master of some and emperor of ONE.
Focus on the WHAT: Brand your product/service which you can offer better than the best
Focus on your core area of expertise and make it your Brand-stinction! Then hone your said skill set every single day so you may trump all others and personify your brand YOUniqueness like no other. Put your Brand focus on what makes you exceptional: your talents, your passions, your aspirations and how these distinguish you from the mortals.
Focus on the WHO: Map your ideal target group that you can serve the best; people who will benefit the most from your ‘Xclusive Xpertise’
Focus on the smallest community of target audience and be the invincible expert on call; this doesn’t mean that you should never work for people who fall out of your target audience, but this distinction presents you with a well defined focus group, to focus your brand promotion and marketing efforts on. Remember, the most important criteria should be that you enjoy working with the said target group: they must be equally energized and excited about Brand YOU and your exclusive promise of value! Why waste precious time and energy in reaching out to people who are not your ideal customers? Why indeed?
Focus on the WHERE: Be constantly visible across selective touch points.
One of the 3 C’s of Personal Branding-Constancy (other two being Clarity and Consistency )-in your Brand Visibility across the best suitable media to reach, engage and empower your target audience day after day.

FOCUS your brand time and be rest assured; soon shall you be the beloved cynosure of your target audience. Period.
